  • On average, more than 3 times as much weight is lost and maintained using meal replacements compared with traditional diets.
  • Meal replacements can be safely used for people with diabetes, as well as other medical conditions.
  • Meal replacements improve dietary compliance, overall nutritional intake, and can lead to reductions in all measured medical risk factors.

Meal replacements are emerging as a state-of-the-art strategy for weight loss and maintenance.  They may be used for long periods or indefinite periods since they are ‘real meals’ that are simply prepackaged. Meal replacements may be transported between home and work and are easily prepared in a short time.
