Why Meal Replacements are so Effective for Weight Loss

Meal replacements get you to ketosis quicker

The only way to lose weight is to burn more energy than you eat.  FastFx contains less than 200 calories per serve.  When calories are reduced, especially calories from carbohydrates, the body shifts to burning stores of fat.  This process is called Ketosis and is the key to losing weight fast.  It is much easier to reach Ketosis from a Meal Replacement than ‘dieting’.

Ketosis suppresses hunger

Once your body goes into Ketosis it also dampens the hunger messages sent to your brain.  So you don’t feel as hungry.  When you ‘diet’, it is difficult to reach Ketosis and so the body still thinks it’s hungry.  Having to battle with constant hunger pains make traditional diets much less effective.  A Meal Replacement gets you to Ketosis quicker, so, after a while, your intense hunger pains do diminish.

Meal replacements have calorie controlled servings

When you are simply on a ‘diet’ it is extremely difficult to keep below the calories necessary to put your body into Ketosis.  It requires vigilance and time to weigh and count the calories of everything you eat.  It is very tempting to add oil, dressing, or larger portions. Not to mention the temptation of the left overs!   It is therefore incredibly challenging to actually keep under the required calories.  In contrast, a Meal Replacement contains the exact calories needed to reach ketosis – no weighing or calorie counting needed.  Meal Replacements help you keep the calories down without you having to do any of the hard work.

Meal replacements contain all the essential vitamins and minerals

When ‘dieting’ it is almost impossible to get all the vitamins and minerals your body needs while also keeping the calories down.  This means you either over eat, or your body is under nourished. Being under nourished can reduce your energy levels (so you are less likely to exercise) and it also dampens your metabolism, so weight loss slows down.

Meal Replacements see fast results

Traditional diets most commonly see 1 kilo of weight loss week, but people are losing between 2 and 4 kilos per week on FastFx.  These dramatic results are incredibly motivating.  It is much easier to stick to a programme when, every day, you see the results on the scales.  Psychologists agree that the psychological component of weight loss is very strong, so the better you feel about the results you are achieving, the more likely you are to keep at it
