What are meal replacements?
A meal replacement is a drink, bar, soup, etc. intended as a substitute for a solid food meal, usually with controlled quantities of calories and nutrients. While meal replacements are popular options to help with weight loss, they are not all created equal – so it‘s vital to know which is best for you before incorporating meal replacements into your diet. They come in a variety of formulations – including powders, shakes, bars and soups. These partial meal replacements are designed to replace one or two of your daily meals. While they are definitely not a replacement for healthy eating and regular exercise, they can be a useful weight loss tool. Meal replacements can be useful for those who are time-poor and find it difficult to cook healthy food at home.
Ingredients your body will thank you for
Low Glycemic Index carbohydrate
A diet full of low glycemic index ingredients translates to eating a diet which reduces large fluctuations in your blood sugar levels.
One of the main benefits of eating foods with a lower glycemic index is that it may help you to cut cravings and urges by limiting spikes in your blood sugar which the trigger release of insulin, ultimately leading to fat storage and weight gain.
The advantage of eating foods which have a low glycemic index is that your blood sugar will not rise as rapidly. Low glycemic index carbs produce a steadier rise in blood sugar, and the fiber in these foods helps you feel more full to keep you satisfied longer.
Nu pods use a carbohydrate called PALATINOSE which has a Glycemic Index of 32, which is lower than apples, bananas and even carrots!
