Choosing A Nutrition Shake

A trip to a health food store to select a nutritional supplement can leave you confused. There are so many choices it can be almost impossible to choose a dietary supplement, such as a nutrition shake. Nutrition shakes can provide supplemental nutrients to help maintain your health by providing vitamins and minerals that you might not be getting at regular meals. Nutrition shakes are often designed with the nutrients and fiber to replace one meal each day. So, it’s important that you select a shake that is good for your body. How do you know which nutrition shake to choose?
Drinking a nutrition shake as a meal replacement can help control how many calories you consume while still providing adequate nutrition. The right shake can help you lose weight, help lower your cholesterol and improve your energy levels. Read the label to find out the nutrition contents of a product. Select a nutrition shake that contains no colors and preservatives. Select a shake that has fiber, vitamins and trace minerals, such as zinc and selenium.
An excellent nutrition shake option is Shakeology®. You can lose weight by replacing one meal three days each week, exercising and eating a low-fat balanced diet. You can mix Shakeology with fresh fruit and other ingredients to make a delicious, nutrient-packed, low-calorie meal-replacement.
A dietitian and fitness expert can help you determine if a meal replacement nutrition shake is right for you. A fitness and diet professional can also help you design a diet that will work to help you lose weight and stay healthy.
