What are meal replacements?

Meal Replacement shakes are a convenient way to combine your daily macronutrient and micronutrient requirements into a delicious, convenient product. They contain all the micro and macronutrients you would find in a healthy, balanced meal but in the form of a shake. To learn more about True Protein’s meal replacement product, read our article about All-In-One.

Do meal replacements help you lose weight?

Meal replacement protein shakes can support weight loss as they reduce your caloric intake whilst keeping you fuller for longer. Creating healthy lifestyle habits that you can maintain is key to helping you both lose weight and maintain a healthy diet. Having a meal replacement on hand means there is always a nutritious and convenient option for busy days or when emotions and hormones might be tempting you towards unhealthy choices. Meal replacement drinks keep you in control of your food choices.

Can I drink meal replacements all day?

You can use True meal replacements for one or up to three meals. However, they are not intended as a total diet replacement, and we recommend consuming a wholefood diet around the meals you choose to replace.

Should you cycle meal replacement shakes?

There is no need to cycle meal replacement supplements. True’s products are made with premium ingredients that will be tolerated by the body no matter how long you consume them. Always consume meal replacement shakes in conjunction with a well-balanced, wholefood diet.

When is the best time to take a meal replacement shake?

The best time to take a meal replacement shake will depend on your health goals and schedule. You can have a shake as a quick and nutritious breakfast on-the-go, a convenient healthy lunch when you are pushed for time and/or as a delicious protein-rich dinner that will fill you up without feeling heavy before bedtime. It can also be taken as a pre or post workout meal. To fuel a workout, research suggests consuming a meal combining protein and healthy carbs 30 minutes to a couple of hours prior. To aid muscle recovery and replenish glycogen (carbohydrate) stores after a workout, consuming a protein rich meal within an hour of a workout is recommended. When you want to schedule your meals and how much fuel or recovery you need will depend on the intensity and duration of exercise.
