The Gluten Free Meal Replacement Bars, Shakes, Soups, and Dessert Dietary Supplements have been specially formulated to balance your diet. It also gives you the 16 essential vitamins & minerals, 17 essential amino acids and protein for lean muscle tissue. With our recommended weight loss program, the dieter is also allowed to eat a main meal every day. This can include fresh meats, chicken, fish or seafood, unlimited vegetables, and also salads. Use the recommended 30 minutes low intensive exercise, for example walking, and 8 to 10 glasses of water. With the diet shakes, the participant can expect to lose weight fast, up to 3kgs in their first week! By restricting your carbohydrate intake, you allow your body to use its stored fat as energy. By burning fat, hence you lose weight fast.

Recent studies have shown that the faster you lose weight, the longer you keep it off.  Certainly this is confirmed by most of the testimonials we have received.

The gluten free weight loss shakes, soups, bars & desserts can also be used as daily healthy snacks.
