When it comes to losing weight, often the hardest part is knowing where to start! Backed by health professionals for over two decades, well-balanced, nutrient rich meal replacement shakes are a quick and easy solution for rapid weight loss results.
The reason medical professionals recommend Optislim shakes to lose weight is that they reduce your calorie intake while delivering all the right vitamins, minerals and proteins to support your nutritional needs. The results include successful weight loss, lowered blood pressure, decreased insulin sensitivity and improved blood sugar.
If you’re ready to start your journey, procrastinate no more. Here’s your cheat sheet on the best shakes to lose weight:
1. Shakes to Lose Weight Rapidly
Suitable for those with a BMI over 30 under medical guidance, this phase of rapid weight loss known as a Very Low-Calorie Diet is the most intensive phase of the Optislim program. On this program you would replace three meals per day for 3 weeks and a maximum of 12 weeks and minimise your total calorie intake to 800 calories per day*.
If you are in this early stage of your weight loss journey, we recommend choosing shakes from our Optislim VLCD, LVCD Platinum, or VLCD Platinum Plus range. You will get to enjoy delicious Salted Caramel, Chocolate, Banana, Coffee or Vanilla shakes, two cups of mainly green vegetables for fibre and at least two litres of water to help flush waste from the fat burning process.
1. Shakes to Lose Weight Steadily
If you’ve completed the Rapid Weight Loss phase or you have a starting BMI between 25 – 29.9, we suggest undertaking a Low-Calorie Diet. Similar to a VLCD, an LCD creates a calorie deficit to enable your body to burn fat to lose weight. The key difference is that you will be replacing two meals a day with shakes and incorporating one healthy meal and a couple of 100 calorie snacks per day.
For this stage of your weight loss journey, you will be able to select from the Optislim VLCD, LVCD Platinum, or VLCD Platinum Plus range and the Optislim Life LCD range and enjoy a broader range of flavours including our popular Choc Mint or Strawberry! Yum…
1. Shakes for Men to Lose Weight
Designed specifically for men, the Optiman shakes can be used as part of a Low-Calorie Diet for steady weight loss. Containing two thirds of your recommended daily nutrients, replace two meals a day with a low-calorie, low-fat Optiman shake while enjoying one healthy dinner and a couple of 100 calorie snacks per day.
1. Natural, Gluten Free Shakes to Lose Weight
If you have are sensitive to gluten or would like to minimise your intake of artificial colours and flavours it can be hard to find healthy, well-balanced shakes to lose weight!
