Are Weight Loss Shakes The Key To Lasting Weight Loss?

weight loss shakes

Weight loss shakes have been around for decades and they’re not going anywhere. They’re everywhere… places like your local GNC, supermarket, health food store, etc. They’re in traditional magazine, on TV, and all over social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.

Weight Loss Shakes And Their Allure

These shakes come with a promise — to make you slimmer without needing to put forth much effort. No thinking, no exercising. Just drink the shake down and you’ll magically lose weight.

Some of the recent marketing messages I’ve seen on bottles are:

  • “The Lean Shake”
  • “Lean Shake Burn”
  • “Super-Lean Meal Replacement”
  • “Slender-Blend”

And without even looking at the ingredients, the shiny label leads us to believe these shakes promote weight loss.

How To Determine Your Maintenance Calories (With A Working Calculator)

maintenance calories

If you’ve never heard the term maintenance calories before, here’s a simple definition: the total amount of calories required on a daily basis to maintain your body weight with no gains or losses in fat and/or muscle tissue.

The human body requires energy every day to maintain bodily functions and body weight. The food you eat every day is used in various ways to repair your muscles, help cells turnover to create new ones, store fat into your fat cells, and glycogen (carbs) into your muscles and provide energy to your body for movement and exercise.

Maintenance Calorie Intake (what does this mean?)

If you’re not gaining or losing weight at your current caloric intake, this is what we refer to as your so-called maintenance caloric intake.

To Maintain simply means to constantly replace the energy you’ve expended with more energy from food. It’s a cyclical process and you’ve been doing it your entire life, likely without ever thinking about the concept of maintenance calories before.
