Meal Replacement Powders, or Drink Mixes, are best suited for individuals who either don't have have time to prepare complete healthy meals, do not like many of the foods that are naturally high in good quality protein, or simply enjoy the convenience of a quick meal. We carry many of the most popular meal replacement powders. Choose the one best for you by comparing their taste, features and price. Many of the powders are low in fat and high in protein and therefore are sometimes referred to as protein shakes. Others contain a balanced ratio of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. They usually contain a complete profile of vitamin and minerals and other important nutrients especially important for bodybuilders, athletes and dieters. NETRITION TIP: If you are following a Zone Diet, Isocaloric, or Balanced diet, but prefer the low-fat meal replacement powders, we suggest adding some fresh or frozen fruit and a tablespoon of flaxseed oil or macadamia nut oil to your shake to bring it to the 40/30/30 ratio of carbohydrates, protein, and fat. A great idea is to interchange using the two oils or add some of each in order to balance your diet with these excellent sources of fat. Flaxseed oil is rich in the omega-3 polyunsaturated oil, alpha-linolenic acid, which is an essential fatty acid. Macadamia nut oil is about 80% monounsaturated and adds a nutty flavor to your shake. Olive oil is normally recommended as a highly monounsaturated oil, yet it is about 74% monounsaturated, lower than macadamia nut oil and not as tasty in a chocolate (or other flavored) shake. NETRITION TIP: If you prefer your meal replacement shakes to be thick and ice cold, we suggest that you keep a container of cold water in the refrigerator to be used with your shakes and add ice cubes in place of some of the water or milk or add frozen strawberries, blueberries or other frozen fruit to the shake. Another option to thicken your meal replacement shakes is to add some instant pudding mix to the shake. You may be able to find a sugar-free version if you are concerned about the extra calories. NETRITION TIP: To be sure you are also getting adequate fiber, phytonutrients, and essential fatty acids, we suggest adding Fiber-Psyll, ProFibe, Udo's Choice Wholesome Fast Food Blend, Udo's Choice Digestive Enzymes, or Udo's Choice Beyond Greens powder.
