If you prefer your meal replacement to be for just one meal a day then choose to replace the one that is currently the most unhealthy. To replace your present calorie overloaded breakfast with a flavoured shake may be a sensible choice. Should your life style mean having a heavy dinner late at night then you may decide that replacing that meal could be preferable. Whilst a replacement diet may be your choice you do not have to impose your choice upon your family. You may feel that it is more practical to replace a meal that is a less social occasion.
One of the reasons that a meal replacement diet is so successful is due to the extreme simplicity. Not only is the shake quick and easy to prepare but there is no need to count calories. The shake mix will give you the number of calories and will also list the ingredients. In this way you can see that you have the vitamins and nutrients needed to maintain a healthy life style.
Followers of the meal replacement diet often find that they become more aware of the need to eat sensibly. This may be the reason that so many switch to healthy options for the meals that are not replaced. The effects of a meal replacement diet are therefore doubly enhanced.
One common mistake that you must avoid is to think that because you are having one or two meals a day in liquid form that there is no need for additional liquid intake. As with any diet, or for simple good health, you must drink plenty of water every day.
We are all aware that the standard advice for weight loss is to eat less and exercise more. This advice is as true for a meal replacement diet as for any other method of calorie reduction. In the same way exercise must be at the cornerstone of any health improvement plan.
If you are not used to regular exercise or if your meal replacement diet is an attempt to loser an excessive amount of weight the do seek the advice of your doctor or other medical advisor.
