A healthy functioning metabolism is not only important for weight loss but also for overall health. Unhealthy eating habits can slow down our metabolic rate, leading to weight gain. On the other hand, diets that result in a significant reduction in calories may provide a ‘quick-fix’ to weight loss however, long-lasting results are difficult to achieve. To avoid the so called yo-yo effect, during the Almased programme it is important that the body is provided with enough energy and nutrients to run efficiently in spite of the reduced calorie intake. Almased research has shown that during the programme, essential muscle mass is retained, which is important in preventing the detrimental cycle of weight loss and gain.
The high-quality blend of nutrients in Almased helps to effectively support metabolic activity and energy release*. This is particularly important for successful weight loss, as a well-functioning metabolism makes it easier to lose weight healthily, but most importantly, it is fundamental for sustainable weight loss. When you provide your body with the right level of energy and nutrients, this can help to avoid the dreaded yo-yo effect. Once the diet is completed, ensuring you support the body’s energy needs, your body should be able adapt to the new calorie intake.
A healthy metabolism is also important for slim people; this is what helps with maintaining a healthy weight. Naturally, on average we gain between 0.6 to 1.1 lb per year– without changing any dietary or lifestyle habits. Therefore, maintaining a consistent, healthy weight over the years is a real challenge – but with Almased this is no longer the case!

With many diets, the body initially loses surplus water. But what happens to our fat stores?
Unfortunately, the body focuses on our muscles more easily than fat as a source of energy. But in order to lose weight healthily and sustainably, it is our fat reserves which need to be used. What will help?
Protein! Protein in particular helps the body to retain its muscle integrity during dieting. Thereafter, the body can draw upon fat reserves to meet its energy requirements. The “right type” of weight can thus be lost and these changes will be reflected not only the scales but also in our body measurements. This is because one pound of fat has a significantly larger volume than one pound of muscle.
Almased is beneficial here as it contains two sources of protein, from both soya and yogurt while the biological value increases from the combination of protein from both vegetable and animal sources.
Anyone who has followed a diet knows that you can often feel hungry and even lacking in energy. The reason for this is that you eat less and less frequently and depending on what you eat, you might feel full in the short-term, but alas, all too short-lived. The reason for this is not only the reduced calorie intake, but in particular, insufficient levels of nutrition. Ensuring a good balance between the right micro- and macronutrients can be difficult for some; nonetheless, it is very important. The macronutrient protein, in particular, has been found to produce the greatest feeling of fullness and as such, should be part of every healthy meal consumed.
In order to stay active and perform to the best of your abilities during your diet, it is important to consume a balanced mix of nutrients.
