Everyone had heard of dietary aides that promise super quick weight loss. Oftentimes, people rely on these quick fixes too heavily and are disappointed when they gain the weight back after losing some weight quickly. There are foods such as meal replacement shakes, protein bars, and weight loss teas that can help make a rapid change in weight. However, it is usually best to substitute only some meals with these items. While the change may not be quite as rapid, it is more sustainable and better for a person’s body.
- Meal replacement shakes can help with weight loss as they have been scientifically formulated to contain a similar number of key nutrients — protein, fat, carbohydrate and vitamins — as a meal, for significantly fewer calories.
- Green and matcha teas have also been shown to enhance fat metabolism at a cellular level.
- Protein bars can help with weight loss, but it is important to remember that the body can only process a certain amount of protein at any one time.
“What is important to remember is that the body can only process a certain amount of protein at any one time, which means that the extra protein will simply be excreted.”
