What is USANA Nutrimeal?
USANA Dutch Chocolate Nutrimeal is a flavored low-GI meal-replacement shake that will help you make sure you never have to feel guilty for missing another meal again – plus it is engineered to replace food while supplying the body with essential nutrients.
This weight-management and nutritional supplement is designed for the busy lifestyles we lead today. The Nutrimeal shake packets contain low-GI carbs, good quality protein, high fibre and good fats in measured quantities that can help the body to lose weight or keep a healthy weight without deficiencies.
Benefits of Protein for Normal Body Function and Appetite Control
Protein is necessary for the body to function normally. Over ten thousand proteins build up the muscles, organs, tissues, hair, skin, and bones – bet you didn’t know that tid-bit of information!
The nutrients from the food you eat are absorbed in the gut to give your body fuel for energy. Proteins satiate you and help you control hunger. They also help you maintain your muscle mass. You crave less for late-night snacks, and your metabolism goes up, so more fat is burned – boom! All sorted, just eat protein!
I wish it were that easy!
But don’t stop having protein shakes that’s for sure because not eating enough protein can lead to muscle loss, and tissue can break down. Too much of it can be stored in the body as fat. Clearly then, there’s a right amount of protein to take daily.
For girls and women, the magic number for proteins is between 50 and 70 grams daily. Adult men need around 60 – 90 grams of protein a day. To put it simply, up to 35% of your daily caloric intake should come from proteins. If you’re involved in activities like lifting weights, biking, or running, you need more of it for build and repair.
But there is only so much grilled chicken you can have to get your dose of daily protein. You can also get your daily protein requirement from lentils, eggs and beef. – but remember, not all protein is the same, plus when you don’t have time to get creative with various protein-rich foods, meal replacement and protein shakes can come to the rescue.
The problem with many protein shakes is that they are challenging to digest for many adults – you know…urm, bottom burps!
The protein in USANA Dutch Chocolate Nutrimeal is derived from soy and whey, and thus easier for most people to digest.
Each serving provides a whopping 15 grams of soy, whey and top quality isolate proteins. Soy protein is a complete protein, which means it contains all the nine essential amino acids the body needs from food (the other 11 amino acids are produced in the body.)
Many commercial protein powders also contain chemicals and toxic metals (and other contaminants) that leach into the product from the plant sources. USANA Nutrimeal formulations are carefully quality controlled to ensure you get the best nutrition you pay for – USANA Protein Powders are manufactured in a state of the art FDA Approved Facility in Salt Lake City UT. So you get the idea, they take their quality control – S E R I O U S L Y!
Benefits of Low-GI Food for Sustained Energy Through the Day
It was essential to include low-GI carbs in USANA Dutch Chocolate Nutrimeal. In combination with proteins, carbs provide your body with the energy that you need. Low-GI foods (GI stands for Glycemic Index, or the measurement of how quickly a food can increase your blood sugar levels) deliver energy at a steady pace throughout the day.
So you’re less likely to snack or overeat or crave foods late at night. Low-GI foods maintain your blood sugar levels – we like not snacking…snacking can be an issue.
High-GI foods like a white-bread sandwich, white rice, sugary drinks, starchy potatoes will digest quickly and give you an instant burst of energy. Your blood sugar will shoot up higher and faster than your body can process into energy. The excess will convert to fats and get stored in your body. Clearly, high-GI foods aren’t good for weight-loss.
Low-GI foods like whole grains, beans, porridge oats, lentils all have GI less than 55. USANA Nutrimeal has been made with a low GI of 25. The shake will keep you alert and powered through the day without slumps and food cravings – plus, it’s protein so it’ll support your muscle tissue and help lose weight.
Is Dietary Fibre good for Better Gut Health and Blood Sugar Control?
Yes indeed it is, it’s not low-GI foods and proteins alone that can give you sustained energy and control blood sugar levels. Dietary fibre helps keep your bowel movements regular, which is extremely important in the body’s waste disposal and nutrient absorption system. When you have a healthy garbage disposal unit, your body is rid of toxins and can absorb nutrients better.
Dietary fibre also gives you a feeling of satiation, so you have fewer sugar cravings. In other words, it helps to keep your blood sugar levels stable. When you also make lifestyle changes and include exercise in your regime, fibre helps to lose weight. – if you want a top tip. Include USANA Fibergy with your USANA Shake for an added boost of Fiber.
When and How to Take Protein Shakes for Meal Replacement
Nutrimeal can be placed in a shaker bottle if you’re on the go (or you can blend it with ice and berries).
Simply add 3 scoops in about 290-340 ml water (around a cup and a half,) shake and drink. The drink can be a meal replacement. But it’s important to know how to do it right.
The goal is not to give up all your meals and turn to protein shakes. Instead, you can replace one meal or at most two meals in your day, with a packet of USANA Nutrimeal. You could also use it as a supplement when you’re active and want to meet your daily protein and carb requirements.
The meal replacement formulation is already packaged in convenient doses that you can mix and go when you’re in a rush. The powder form makes the nutrients bio-available and easily accessible to your body.
Note that on its own, protein powder cannot be a meal replacement. But when it’s mixed with other nutrients like carbs and dietary fibre, you get a balance of macro-nutrients that you would otherwise get from a meal.
But even a high-quality protein powder that contains carbs and fats with fibre cannot be considered a meal on a gram per gram basis. So we don’t recommend skipping all your meals and replacing them with USANA Nutrimeal. Instead, turn to USANA for breakfast you don’t have time for (every day is also acceptable) or the lunch you sip at work from a bottle while you fit in a twenty-minute walk.
