Around the holidays, we all want to drink as much eggnog and eat as many Christmas cookies as we can, without gaining any weight—but we all know that’s a dream that unfortunately is never going to come true. (If you’re someone who can do that, I envy you.)
While this time of year isn’t the time to restrict yourself from all the tasty goodies or try and lose weight, it’s also not the time to just let your waistline and your health go. You may not be able to lose weight; but what you can do is maintain your current weight by regularly exercising, eating only one of Grandma’s sugar cookies instead of five and cutting your calorie intake each day.
The first two I can’t help you with. But the last one, I have your answer—meal replacement shakes.
Meal replacement shakes aren’t just low in calories, they’re high in essential nutrients your body needs to keep yourself nourished and your stomach feeling full, while helping also you maintain or lose weight. And the best meal replace shake in my opinion is one that’s packed with protein. Like how your iPhone charger powers that handheld device you can’t put down, protein powers your life. Protein provides numerous benefits to your body, including fueling the entire body, helping build muscle mass and being a key component to essential substances your body needs, like antibodies and blood.
You can get protein from meat, eggs, nuts and even some plants and seeds. But, sometimes our busy schedules or taste buds don’t allow us to get the needed amount of protein we need from these foods. If you’re looking for something that’s quick, convenient, tastes good and is loaded with protein, then you need to start drinking high protein meal replacement shakes.
And lucky for you, Nature’s Sunshine offers two viable options for protein shake powder. Both our Nutri-Burn Vanilla and Nutri-Burn Chocolate shake powders provide 25 grams of lactose-free whey protein per serving and promote lean muscle mass. But that’s not all these delicious powders can do for you. They also:
- Promote weight loss
- Boost energy levels
- Increase resting metabolic rate
- Provide 60 percent more of the Daily Value of essential vitamins and minerals your body needs.
So to help you balance out all the extra calories you’ll likely be consuming during the next few weeks, swap out your breakfast or lunch with a high protein meal replacement shake. Consuming enough protein not only nourishes and repairs your body, it’s going to help stop those hunger pains you normally feel two hours after eating so you don’t overeat and gain any extra weight.
If you want to look and feel great throughout this holiday season, start drinking Nature’s Sunshine meal replacement shakes.
