Make Your Meal Replacement Shakes Count
It’s a new year, which means it’s time for new goals and a better you. Like many people out there, you probably want to start living a healthier lifestyle. While it’s a nice idea in theory, actually putting that goal into practice can be difficult. Where to start? How to start? How to stick with it?
The best way to reach that big goal of pursuing healthier life choices is to create smaller goals and work toward them one by one. One particular aspect to focus on is ensuring that your body is getting the right nutrition that it needs on a day to day basis. This includes eating proper meals (try five small meals a day, instead of three large ones), incorporating the right nutrients into your diet, and consuming them are the right time of day.
Meal replacement shakes are a great way to address each of these things. Here’s how.
Have a Meal Replacement Shake for Breakfast
As often discussed, skipping breakfast is a big no-no. Some people argue that they simply aren’t hungry in the morning and why eat if you’re not hungry? Others simply feel like they’re too busy and can’t spare the time to prepare a wholesome, healthy breakfast.
In breakfast’s defense, eating in the A.M. is the healthiest way to fuel your body for the day. You’re guaranteed to be hungry a few hours after waking, when it’s still not lunchtime. That hunger leaves you vulnerable to grabbing the first edible thing you see, which often isn’t the healthiest solution.
Meal replacement shakes are quick to whip up in the morning. They also provide essential vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber to kick off your day. These shakes are an easy way to add a healthy breakfast to your morning and won’t leave you feeling heavy if you’re not feeling hungry.
Meal Replacement Shakes Are Great In-Between Meals
A great way to keep track of what you eat is by splitting your meals up into 5 small ones throughout the day instead of 3 large ones. It ensures you don’t feel hungry between meals and end up binging at lunch or dinner. But if you want to prepare all of your own food, five meals a day is a lot to handle. With some practice, the routine becomes easier, but meal replacement shakes are the easiest way to do that.
Instead of pre-mixing the shake for a 10 o’clock meal or pre-dinner, you can portion the shake powder into a plastic baggie and mix it up on the go. If you happen to be home, there are some delicious meal replacement shake recipes that hover around only 200 calories.
