Life is complicated, but weight management is surprisingly simple: burn more calories than you take in. But how can you do that when you’re surrounded by tempting treats and fast food?

The answer is a startlingly simple—yet proven effective—weight management strategy: substitute up to two meals per day with a meal replacement option, such as a nutritional bar or shake that provides the protein and fiber you need to feel satisfied, plus essential vitamins and minerals.

Replacing breakfast and lunch with a nutritious shake is a convenient, portion-controlled choice – especially when you’re on the go. No choosing between a coffeehouse banana bread or croissant for breakfast, or grabbing a fast-food burger at lunch.

The best part?  Since you’re giving your body the right fuel and nutrition it needs, the right meal replacement will help satisfy your hunger. Just  supplement your meals every two to three hours with beneficial, high-protein snacks such as a small handful of nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts), low-fat cheese and fruit, hummus and raw veggies, or edamame beans (you get the idea).

Create a healthy, balanced meal for dinner by choosing a lean protein such as chicken, fish or, tofu; colorful veggies such as broccoli, carrots, or asparagus; and a whole-grain, complex carb such as sweet potato, brown rice, or quinoa.

Once you’ve reached your goal weight, you can more easily maintain that weight by continuing to substitute one meal per day with a protein shake.
