Diet Shakes and Bars, on their way out?

No More Diet Shakes or Bars! It’s possible that in the past, like many others, you may have tried one of the many meal replacement shakes or diet bar products around. They seem to come and go on supermarket shelves, almost in line with the seasons. They appear to have been far more popular a few years back. Many were marketed as meal replacement drinks. Others were often presented as diet bars for you to consume whilst drinking water. It was stated that users would get all, or at least a large percentage of their daily requirements of vitamins and nutrients, as long as they consumed the set number of units each day.

So why were they so popular? Well it seems that it came down to the fact that the manufactures believed we were lazy. The products were positioned in the market place as being hyper convenient, for those of us who were always on the go. The advertising campaigns told us it was just so easy to grab a shake, or a diet bar, and go. No food shopping, no meal prepping and zero washing up afterwards, with almost guaranteed weight loss thrown in! What was there not to like….?

Seismic Shift Taking Place

Over the past few years there has been an ever-changing selection of bars, shakes and general meal replacement products available. Now, however, it seems that their popularity is starting to fade. This may be down to the fact that there is something of a seismic shift taking place towards a more science-based approach to weight loss. So, the new kid on the block seems to be ‘permanent weight loss’ and the demise of the age old yo-yo diet may well be on the horizon.

In the age of Instagram and social media in general, everyone wants to get the perfect body – and fast! And, for the lay person, the shakes and meal replacement products being promoted in the media often seemed to be the fast, perfect solution they dreamed of. But the old saying “if it sounds too good to be true it probably is” all of a sudden made consumers re-think their purchasing decisions. Some of them, of course, had previously been spending hundreds of pounds a month purchasing the range of different products.

Try a Low-Carb Diet

The key to reducing and then maintaining a healthy weight is down to the adopting of a balanced, possibly low-carb diet. It is no secret that meal replacement products just aren’t as appealing, or healthy, as an actual meal. Just think about it: they can sit on shop shelves for weeks, or even months on end, without refrigeration. So as you can imagine, the ingredients in them are heavily processed to ensure a long shelf life.

As a result, there is very little left in the way of whole food or nutrition, the exact elements that are essential for a balanced diet. Additionally, nutrient absorption and healthy digestion are hugely diminished. One other negative factor with the meal replacement products was down to the fact that they were so socially non-inclusive. They just did not fit in with any form of social life, resulting in them being non-sustainable as a weight-loss regime.

The Joy of Eating

You don’t need us to tell you that continuously sipping a diet shake, or eating a meal replacement bar, isn’t quite the same as tucking into a delicious meal. It’s human nature to experience joy from eating, and a diet shake doesn’t have the nuanced flavour profile of say, a delicious chicken salad with fresh vegetables. They also don’t look as appetising, so you don’t get that same kind of excitement and enjoyment.

Also we should never forget the aroma of wonderfully cooked food. The sensation of ‘smell’ is one of the strongest sensations we have as a species. The smell of frying onions, as an example, can stay with us for a lifetime. Scientific studies have found that simply smelling the cooking food piques our sensations, long before it touches our tongues. This, of course, just does not happen with the bar and shakes.

Enjoy Eating With Friends

As a result, you are much more likely to fall off the wagon and turn to foods that are unhealthy, just to satisfy your natural craving for some instant gratification. Plus, of course, the social pleasure of enjoying a meal with family or friends is no longer in the equation. Hello magazine featured our work.

If you have always struggled with your weight, then you need to investigate a permanent solution, not a quick fix. You should take a serious look at the Gastric Mind Band and the recently launched, award-winning My Weigh Less treatment. Both provide a permanent solution to weight loss. Built on some of the most researched and scientifically focused interventions available, the treatment incorporates clinical hypnosis, along with the unique version of CBT – TCBT that was developed by Martin and Marion Shirran, exclusively for use in the weight-loss arena.

No Magic Fix

When it comes to weight loss, there is no magic fix. Though diet shakes may seem like a quick and easy solution, they are not a sustainable, or healthy way to lose weight permanently. If you’re looking to lose weight in a healthy way, focus on making dietary and lifestyle changes that you can stick with long-term. And always consult with your doctor before starting any new diet or fitness programme.

Meal replacement diets have fallen out of favour, as people realise they are not the magical solution they were built up to be. Diet shakes are often advertised as a healthy and convenient way to lose weight. However, there are several reasons why you should avoid them. Sarah Hart, photo above, lost 140 pounds working with us at the clinic. You can read her full weight-loss story in the success stories section of the site.

Cause Side Effects

Most meal replacement shakes contain unhealthy ingredients such as artificial sweeteners and preservatives. They often don’t provide the same nutritional benefits as real, unprocessed food. In some circumstances they can cause digestive problems, along with a number of other side effects.

Over a thousand people, including medical professionals, celebrities, and members of the public, have travelled from around the world, to experience our weight-loss treatment.

Many of our past clients have successfully reversed medical conditions such as insulin resistance, diabetes, high blood pressure, and fatty liver disease, whereas others have managed to avoid having knee, or hip replacement surgery.

Our weight-loss approach has been the subject of continued research and development over the last thirteen years. Sharon, above, lost 75 pounds.

Below is a selection of weight-loss tips that everyone can start using straight away. And, if you enroll in the My Weigh Less Course, you will learn many more of our helpful tips and techniques about how to achieve successful, permanent weight loss.

Tip No. 1 – Only Eat When You’re Hungry!

This has to be our number one, golden rule, when it comes to achieving successful weight loss. In our experience, most overweight people eat for many different reasons, other than physical hunger. But, if you allow your emotions to control your eating habits, then it is unlikely that you will be able to control your weight as a result. So, before you reach for anything to eat, stop and ask yourself first if you physically NEED to eat, or you just WANT to…

Tip No. 2 – Use a Smaller Plate!

You’ve probably heard this many times before, but it’s a fact that people who use larger plates tend to eat more food than those who eat from smaller plates. No doubt you know about the power of optical illusions. But are you aware of just how much more generous the same size portion of food appears, when presented on a smaller plate, instead of a larger one? Have a look at the image below. It’s known as the Delboeuf optical illusion. If you stick to our mantra, “always go for quality over quantity”, then you will definitely lose weight much more easily.

Delboeuf Optical Illusion

Tip No. 3 – Drink a Glass or Two of Water Before Your Meal!

Reduce Your Calorie Intake by over 20%, with almost with no effort! Research results, published by Harvard Medical showed that people who drank two large glasses of water, just before eating, consumed, on average, around 20% less food compared with when they didn’t drink anything before they ate. This is possibly as a result of the stretching and fullness sensation in the stomach.

Tip No. 4 – Eat Slowly and Mindfully!

A growing number of studies have consistently found a correlation between speed of eating and weight, so it is officially accepted now that faster eaters are definitely more likely to become overweight. Studies have also shown that people are much more likely to eat more when their eating is mindless, as opposed to mindful. So, make meal times an occasion by sitting down at a table, with no distractions. Then eat slowly and savour every mouthful. You will naturally eat less food and also find it easier to lose weight as a result!

Tip No. 5 – Stay Away From Sugar and Highly Processed Foods!

It’s a fact that sugar and highly processed foods have addictive properties! So much so, that many people find that once they start eating these foods, they literally can’t stop. And, of course, if you’re making such poor food choices, this in turn will make it almost impossible for you to lose weight. So, our advice is to choose healthy, unprocessed foods and limit the amount of sugar you consume. As a result, you will have far more control over how much you eat and also how much weight you can lose.

Tip No. 6 – Eat Your Favourite Foods on the Plate First!

You may not be aware of how important this tip is, but the order in which you eat your food can actually have a big impact on how much you consume! It’s quite common for overweight people to “save the best til last” when eating. In other words they only eat their favourite food right at the end. It’s not so surprising then, that they also tend to eat everything on their plate, regardless of how uncomfortably full they feel. Because, of course, they don’t want to miss out on the “best bit”!

However, our advice is to eat your favourite things first. Not only will you enjoy it more, but it’s also much easier to stop when you’ve eaten just the right amount and leave the rest on the plate.
