What Helga doesn't realize is that a weight loss diet is not impossible if you have the correct formula.

Bottom Line Formula:

  1. Burn more calories than take in = Lose Weight
  2. Take in more calories then you burn = Gain Weight

Grunhelga above was mistakenly focusing on option 2 above. We want to focus on option 1.

Protein is Important

Unfortunately, as with so many people fighting the “battle of the bulge” and losing weight, a significant portion of the pounds they shed is lean body mass, which is primarily protein. In order to support your overall health during weight loss, the health of your organs, and metabolic processes, you must consume adequate amounts of protein.

Super Shake contains high-quality protein from whey and soy, with little carbohydrate or fat, and a representative amount of essential vitamins and minerals to help provide these important nutrients, especially important to those limiting their caloric intake.

Overtime, we are increasingly becoming overweight

The statistics for our overweight society are concerning to say the very least. More than 56% of the U.S. population is overweight. These national statistics are concerning to health professionals, to say the least, and the phenomenon of increase in overweight people in our societies since the late 1970’s is just recently being addressed.

Unfortunately, losing weight—and keeping it off—has been very difficult for most people. By now, we know that both “low fat” and “high complex carbohydrate” diets do not guarantee a maintained, normal, body weight.

Carbohydrate Sensitivity Plays a Role In Abdominal Weight Gain

In order to help maintain a healthy weight, people who are carbohydrate sensitive should avoid diets high in carbohydrates. According to estimates, over half of overweight people are carbohydrate sensitive.

For women, the circumference of the waist being over 80% the circumference at the widest part of the hips, and for men the waist being as large or larger than the hips (as in a “beer belly”), are strong indications that they are carbohydrate sensitive and have been consuming diets high in carbohydrates for long time. Starch is a carbohydrate.

Note: Phase ‘o Lean Forte is a double-strength starch blocker. Each tablet has the capacity to block the digestion and absorption of more than 100 grams of starch. This is over 400 starch calories. Phase ‘o Lean Forte is a great addition to any weight control plan because it allows you to vary your menu by including some starch in your diet without having to suffer the consequences (within reason of course).

Yo-Yo Diets promote weight gain

People who go on and off diets frequently complain that fewer calories result in weight gain, with each successive round of dieting. Now, clearly demonstrated evidence substantiates that the body gets “stingier” in its use of calories, after each dieting period. This means it becomes easier to gain weight and harder to lose it, with “yo-yo” dieting. So, as time goes on, the situation actually gets worse.

Exercise is Encouraging

Moderate daily walking of as little as 30 minutes has been shown to condition the cardiovascular system. Resistance training, either with machines and/or free weights, is of particular value when combined with carbohydrate-restricted diets. Moreover, a study found that overweight women engaging in an exercise program were more likely to adhere to a lower-calorie diet.

Higher Protein Diets make Sense

Higher protein, low-carbohydrate weight management programs make sense.

Supplementing with Super Shake, which carries a GMO-Free Certification for its soya protein, enriches your diet with protein and compliments limited carbohydrate diets, as well as with a limited intake of fat.

Diets that are low in total calories may not contain adequate amounts of various vitamins and minerals.

Loss of essential nutrients may be harmful

Super Shake (protein drink) also provides the essential vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, and E, as well as the essential minerals copper, zinc, iodine, manganese, selenium, magnesium, calcium, molybdenum and chromium. Maintaining or replenishing healthy levels of chromium, along with daily replenishment of B vitamins can help to decrease cravings for sweets, and generally improve the ability to think clearly and handle stress more effectively.
