Meal replacement, what are they?
The Meal Replacement is a protein shake that can be used to replace breakfast, lunch or dinner and is the perfect ally for those who want to lose weight.
A meal replacement is a nutritionally complete food that contains all the proteins, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and fats that your body needs.
Although the premise of a meal replacement is not to replace conventional foods, it is a replacement for junk food! It is a food that can be consumed at any time of the day as a substitute for a main meal.
It's the perfect compound for those times of the day when you can't eat healthy.
How many meal replacement shakes can I have in a day ?
The answer to this, of course, is that there is no limit to the number of shakes you can have in a day; it's more a matter of how many you should take. Certain meal replacements will have a limit on the number of servings to be consumed over the course of 24 hours, and this will be clearly stated. Usually, this is to make sure you don't get more than your upper daily limit for certain vitamins and other nutrients.
