The mechanism behind weight loss or healthy weight maintenance is not complicated. To lose weight you must create a negative energy balance: calories taken are less than calories expended. Of course this is easier said than done. Lowering our calorie intake leads to hunger. The trick lies in choosing the right foods to keep hunger under control. Foods that are highly processed or high in simple sugars deliver instant satisfaction but do not keep us full for long. On the other hand, foods rich in protein and dietary fibre will keep the feeling of hunger away for a lot longer.
In the past 15 years working in the food industry I have come across a huge number of products claiming to deliver various health claims and benefits. Many weight loss products promise miraculous and fast results without much effort. A large proportion of these health claims has none or very limited scientific evidence behind it.
I have been experimenting with various ingredients throughout my professional life and sharing these with my family, friends and colleagues. I was often asked why I don’t launch my own line of products. So finally I did and I am proud to bring you The Beauty Shake!
