When frequent acid reflux leads to a condition known as GERD, it can seriously affect your health and your quality of life. Find out some of the ways it may affect you and what you can do about it.
Many diets promote liquid meal replacements. These shakes or juices are often a substitute for breakfast or dinner, while lunch remains a normal solid food. The concept of replacing a solid meal with liquid certainly has its benefits as it relates to weight loss. Liquefied fruits and vegetables are often far healthier than some of the most egregious solid foods that we eat – the ones that cause weight gain and poor health.
Not all liquid meal replacements are created equally, however. Some offer more nutrition while others only offer a temporary sugar boost that makes us gain more weight.
No matter what meal replacement you decide to enjoy, it is important that you do it right. The result can be faster and safer weight loss. You’ll experience sustained weight loss with a great feeling of fullness to boot. If you have any questions about meal replacement shakes please bring them up in our next support group or feel free to contact our office for guidance.
