Why Low Carb Shakes Can Make You Fat

There are plenty of weight loss and diet products out on the market today. One you see on almost every grocery shelf is the Low Carb Shake. The idea is to use this shake as a meal replacement and to curb your hunger…thus making you eat less…so you . The formula sounds pretty simple.

Consuming low carb shakes = fat loss.

It’s simple, right? Wrong.

While limiting your carbs can produce short term results…thank you Dr. Atkins…it is not the ultimate solution if you want long term, sustainable body transformation. Most who try “low carb” or worse “no carb” diets, don’t incorporate any exercise or mindset into their strategy at all…which is basically no strategy at all.

They’ve simply heard the same bogus claims and erroneous information we all have – eat low or no carbs…your body will have less calories to consume…less calories means less fat…less fat means more muscle…more muscle means a fit, trim sexy body.

The above scenario is not the way the body functions. First of all, carbohydrates are part of the chain of macronutrients your body needs to sustain life.

Most make the mistake of going on low carb diets, not getting enough calories and putting their bodies into “starvation mode.” Now your body is trying to store fat…that’s right…it’s converting most of what you eat into exactly what you are trying to avoid…fat.

So what does it burn instead for energy? Well, it’s not burning carbs…because you’re not eating carbs. So it burns…muscle. Yes, the muscle you are trying to build is being consumed for energy. Guess what that leaves you with?

Fat…fat…and more fat. Are you starting to get the picture? It is not pretty.

So what do you need to transform your body? And when I say, transform…I mean change for the better and for the rest of your life. If you are looking for a meal replacement…and this is a great idea…why not consider a true “meal” in a glass.
