Meal replacement shakes have become increasingly popular, mainly due to their effectiveness in promoting weight loss and healthy weight maintenance. Almased is Germany’s best-selling meal replacement and ’The Most Trusted Weight Loss Brand’ 2020, voted by consumers. Almased is a meal replacement diet brand that customers have been relying on for more than 30 years, be it short-term weight loss, permanent weight maintenance and optimum well-being.
Meal replacement drinks such as Almased have been formulated to be a convenient meal, high in protein and nutrient-rich, whilst remaining calorie-controlled (200-250 calories per meal). Controlling calorie intake thus creating a daily calorie deficit is key to any effective weight loss programme. Almased is made with a natural, fermented blend of high-quality ingredients; non-GMO soya, yogurt, enzyme-rich honey and all essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to nourish your body with the highest levels of nutrition. It provides all essential nutrients, amino acids and enzymes to support healthy digestion and daily wellness. Almased is also free from gluten, artificial sweeteners, flavours, fillers, stimulants and preservatives. Our formula contains 26g of highly-digestible plant-based protein; the highest concentration of protein compared to any other meal replacement shake in the UK, making it a truly satisfying drink.
The guaranteed levels of optimum nutrition derived from a daily meal replacement shake can be more nourishing than that of a typical meal. For this reason, meal replacement shakes are a convenient way for you to obtain a healthy, satiating and low-calorie meal that is quick and simple to prepare!
In recent years, studies have proven how meal replacement diets can result in clinically significant weight reduction of between 10-15% body weight, which can lead to additional benefits associated with obesity-related diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes. Current research has even shown how meal replacement diets can help people with Type 2 diabetes achieve clinical remission. Almased has a low glycaemic index and glycaemic load, highlighting its suitability for those with the condition. Over 30 years of scientific research has validated Almased’s benefits for those with Type 2 diabetes - supporting weight loss, improving blood glucose levels and importantly reducing the need for anti-diabetic medication1.
Other benefits of a meal replacement diet is that it is simple, convenient and can suit any lifestyle. Almased is very easy to prepare and can replace any daily meal in conjunction with a balanced diet. If you are looking for more structure, Almased offers two weight loss programmes; our 14-Day or Long-Term Plan. Both plans can be tailored to help you achieve any weight loss goal you have. Such programmes can be used to encourage and shape healthier eating habits. Almased’s diet programmes can make you more aware of correct portion sizes and healthier food choices. Following the completion of Almased’s meal replacement programme, such improved eating habits can then become part of your daily routine to support healthy, long-term weight maintenance.
