When you’re trying to lose weight, it can be hard to know where to begin. One of the first places to start is with your diet. Changing your diet is more important in weight loss than exercise, according to some studies. In other words, limiting calorie intake is more important than burning calories. The type of food source you get your calories from also matters.
With the carefully-formulated nutrition of the products in the package, you can supplement your whole-food meals with valuable nourishment.
USANA Plant-Based Proteins for Healthier Weight Management
USANA meal replacement shakes are fortified with nutrients that your body needs, but that you may not be getting enough of from your meals. You’re not expected to replace all your meals with these shakes, but breakfast and lunch or lunch and/or dinner.
In our modern, busy lives, we may not always get the time to consume all the foods we need for the body’s optimal performance. Easy access to packaged food means that we’re more likely to reach for a frozen pizza or order in Chinese takeout when we don’t have time to cook. Why not reach for a thoughtfully-formulated pouch of nourishing protein shake mix instead?
All meal replacement shakes are different. USANA’s formulation comes in three different flavors and includes plant-sourced proteins, fibers, and sugars from fructose or sugarcane. The USANA low-carb shakes will speed you up in your weight management efforts.
There is evidence that protein helps with weight management and satiety. This is why weight loss enthusiasts around the world swear by lean proteins like chicken breasts or legumes, soy, and leafy greens (if they’re vegan.) Protein keeps you full for longer than carbs or fats can. You’ll feel less hungry between meals when you’ve consumed more proteins.
Proteins also increase thermogenesis. Since proteins take longer to digest, your body spends more time drawing energy from the proteins you’ve eaten. Your metabolism stays up for longer after a protein meal. If your body permits, you may even be able to help build lean muscle mass.
The proteins in the USANA meal replacement shakes are sourced from plants like soy, peas, whey protein, and potatoes making it a healthier long term solution to weight loss.
Studies suggest soy protein is good for heart health. The isoflavones in soy offer a host of benefits. But soy protein is lower in carbs, higher in fats, and higher in proteins than other legumes.
The USANA Active Nutrition Transform Kit contains products that has high quality proteins as part of their program. Protein has been proved to increase metabolism and recovery after exercise. Whey Protein is a popular ingredient in protein shakes for bodybuilders and athletes because of it’s digestibility and taste.
You can also benefit from whey protein in USANA’s meal replacement shakes, especially when combined with fibers and other nutrients.
Whey protein is sourced from casein in milk and is popular as use in strength training programs. A comparison of whey protein and pea proteins shows similar outcomes in terms of muscle composition and muscle thickness. So the choice is really up to you, Plant or Why protein depending on your personal choice.
Who doesn’t like a little potato with their dinner at night? It kin of reminds me of my parents cooking really! However, potatoes are a surprising source of proteins. But studies have shown potato protein is a high-quality protein that helps with muscle protein synthesis (MPS.) MPS is what helps the body adapt to exercises and recover faster after exercise. We all want a little bit of that!!
Each serving of USANA Nutrimeal Protein Replacement Shake contains at least 15 grams of proteins. Your daily protein requirement is between 46 and 56 grams. So having 2 meal replacement shakes a day plus a healthier 1 to 2 meals will provide sufficient protein requirements to sustain muscle growth and fat loss.
At least 8 grams of dietary fiber in each serving helps food to be carried through your gut more easily. The fiber keeps you satiated and you’re easily able to control hunger after a meal. You won’t snack on junk foods and it will be easier to stay on top of your weight management goals.
The meal replacement shakes are gluten-free and guilt-free, with less than 10 grams of sugar per serving. Now that’s worth taking!!
Metabolism Boost with Plant-Sourced Nutrients
Along with getting your macros, you’ll benefit from a metabolism boost with USANA Metabolism + While there’s not a lot you can do about metabolism controlled by your gender, age, and sex, there are a few ways to increase thermogenesis.
Thermogenesis is the process of heat production in the body during digestion of food and by the way, this doesn’t mean eating a Vindaloo Curry.
USANA Active Nutrition Transform Kit contains the powerful Metabolism Plus. Studies have shown some foods like proteins and Metabolism Plus increase thermogenesis. Sipping green tea like the Japanese do on a regular basis may reduce body weight, BMI, systolic blood pressure, and waist circumference. The research suggests four cups a day is the golden number. But you can also get your metabolism boost from USANA Metabolism+ that’s included with the USANA Transform Kit.
The Metabolism+ capsules contain EGCG, the compound present in green tea with weight loss benefits. A citrus bio-flavanoid complex with weight-management benefits and platycodon grandiflorum root extract with antiobesity benefits make this supplement a powerful daily support for your goals.
