The Best DIY Meal Replacement Shakes

Replacing your meals with shakes is a great way to lose weight whilst ensuring that you get all the nutrients you need to maintain muscle mass and overall health.

But there are some clear rules you must follow in order to ensure this. In this article, we’re going to run through these as well as giving you a few of the best meal replacement shake recipes so you can get started!

The meal replacement shake rules you must follow:

  • Shakes should typically contain less calories than a full meal would.
  • Make sure that the shakes you consume include the protein, fiber and other macro-nutrients that you need for the day. Plan out your shakes in advance and calculate the macros included so that you can ensure you get the right amounts.
  • Try not to snack on top of the shakes. Eating anything you’ve not accounted for means that you might not maintain a calorie deficit and might be unable to lose weight.
  • Don’t use pre-made formulas which can contain unhealthy, processed ingredients. Try to make your shakes yourself.
