Meal Replacement Shakes for weight loss – Do they actually work?

Meal Replacement Shakes for weight loss – Do they actually work?

Based on our modern-day looks-obsessed society, being overweight may be perceived by many as an appearance issue. However, its medical concern is more crucial due to potential health risks. Being overweight increases the susceptibility to high blood pressure, heart diseases, diabetes and breathing problems. Some people use weight loss shakes to reduce weight, but how effective is this method?

What are meal replacement shakes?

Can you imagine a diet that is easy to prepare, tastes good and is healthy? Meal replacement shakes answer that question. The weight loss shakes replace solid food and cut down on the calories consumed. They also meet basic health requirements, such as nutrients and minerals.

Are they safe, and do they actually help in weight loss?

Meal replacement shakes are safe to consume. Their preparation involves mixing healthy ingredients that are safe for consumption. Besides safety, they are also effective in weight loss. When you eat more calories than your body needs, the extra will be stored as fats, leading to weight gain. The extra weight can be lost by reducing calorie intake. Weight loss shakes have fewer calories than regular meals, making them suitable for weight loss. Now that we know meal replacement shakes indeed help in weight loss, are they effective in the long term? Let’s find out!

Not a solution: here’s why

Weight loss shakes are an easy way to lose weight fast. However, despite their name, they do not entirely replace foods. The all-liquid diet contains most of the nutrients in solid foods, but not all. Some nutrients and enzymes, including antioxidants, can only be found in whole foods. The consumption of weight loss shakes for extended periods is therefore harmful since it deprives the body of these enzymes.

The human body treats calories from typical meals differently from liquid calories. Additionally, the body gains biological benefits during the process of chewing and swallowing. Weight loss shakes can never beat the dietary fulfilment gained by your body from fresh vegetables, fruits and other meals.

So, weight loss shakes: yes or no?

Meal replacement shakes can be effective for short time weight loss but are not a solution. Long term weight loss requires discipline, dieting and physical exercise. Other solutions, such as fat freezing, are also more effective and noninvasive.

Dear Slimspa, You are one of the best spa but there will always be one more room for improvement. Your room lights, more machines so we can enjoy more time to have our treatments. We like all your staff, they are really good. Keep it up! God bless!

Slimspa Team, Thank you for your special treatment. Your spa is very welcoming and professional. I had satisfying results and will come back for sure.

To Slimspa Having a great healthy figure is a compromise and full time job. An awesome diet and gym is the key but for a faster result I tried manual massages and endermologies, the results were amazing, long lasting and meet all my expectations. Cellulite is not about exercise as much as intake of water & estimulation through massages and that's what I got from these treatments & great increase in collagen in my skin. I truly recommend LPG products and treatments,I am happy client.

I had got a very impressive result from my anti cellulite treatments and really like to thank my therapist Soumiys for being so professional , precise and patience . The spa itself is very clean , the staff were friendly and my treatment always starts & ends on time .

Amazing spa and reasonably priced for LPG! I had good results and the therapist Ciby is so knowledgeable and professional. Definitely coming back!

Had a great experience with Hanna. She matched my colour perfectly and I find her cut the easiest to manage and style.

It was a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, made me feel welcome and explained everything / procedures for my treatment to me. I will definitely go there again for future treatments. Thank you so much. I have already experienced some of the desired results - just two weeks after my first treatment! So I already booked my next treatment and am very excited about possible future results.

I had a wonderful experience with the spa, the combination of treatments was very helpful on my goal to get a better figure. The personal was professional, I believe they have always keep the expectations to reality and would recommend to anyone who wants to achieve results.

The Hydrafacial was totally excellent. The great ambience coupled with the helpful and kind behaviour of the staff, the treatment was not only useful for my skin but also had been a very pleasant experience

Currently undergoing Venus Legacy sessions (with Somaya) and manual anti cellulite massage (Warda) and they do wonders! After four sessions I see the results. Everyone is super accommodating and professional.

Really impressed with this place. They offer all types of solutions for slimming and body contouring. Had cellulite treatment here and was more than satisfied with the results. The staff are very professional and very friendly and they will give you the best advice and solutions.

Efficient, friendly, personalized attention and warm service. Very comfortable going ahead with their treatments owing to their experienced staff.
