NOW Christmas is over, many of us are thinking about the extra pounds we’ve put on over the festive season.
And with January being peak season for fad diets, there’s all kinds of weird and wonderful ways being presented to us to lose weight.
So how do we do it in a way that is sustainable and scientifically proven?
Almased is a meal replacement shake clinically proven to aid weight loss as part of a healthy, balanced diet*.
Almased is Germany’s favourite meal replacement product [Almased]
It’s made from high-quality raw ingredients such as enzyme-rich honey and soya yogurt and is fortified with essential vitamins and minerals.
It’s the top selling weight loss product in Germany** and a trusted brand over there.
Almased can replace any main meal and still contains all the important nutrients needed to support your body and maintain a healthy digestive system, no matter how active you are.
It is gluten-free, vegetarian and contains no artificial flavours or GM ingredients, so you can be confident that this is a meal-replacement product that is clean and wholesome.
Almased is high in protein [Almased]
Many people start the year with a new diet, which may provide quick and impressive results but can lead to a slower metabolism, which in turn, causes you to pile weight back on.
As Almased has a low carbohydrate content and is protein-rich, it has a low glycaemic index rating so won’t cause blood sugar levels to soar and dip, which can affect your metabolism.
This high protein level also helps keep you fuller for longer and tests have shown that one Almased shake made up with water and 2tsps of oil can keep hunger at bay for up to four hours at a time.

That’s enough to get you through a busy morning of work, the school run and even a work-out, without the need for snacking in between meals.
Making up Almased shakes couldn’t be easier. Just add 50g (5 heaped tbsps), of the powder to 200-350ml of water or low-fat milk and 2 tsps of oil (flaxseed, olive, rapeseed or walnut), and enjoy.
To keep up the regime on-the-go, you can now buy individual 50g pouches of Almased from Boots.
Almased is available to buy from Boots, Lloyds and Amazon.
Almased should be used as part of a balanced diet. You should always consult your doctor before deciding to go on a diet.
