A common method employed by many people in the name of health and/or losing weight is using a meal replacement supplement in place of eating an actual meal. There are many types of meal replacements available, each with its own formula and purported benefits. But are meal replacement options the best fit for Phase One?

The Phase One Diet focuses on real, natural food that is nourishing, energizing and helps protect against the ravages pathogenic fungi and their poisons cause. The Phase One Diet focuses on foods high in protein, such as organic, lean meats, eggs and nuts; foods high in fiber, such as vegetables and nuts; foods high in healthy fats, such as nuts, avocados, fish and grass-fed butter; and foods low in carbohydrates/sugar, such as tarter varieties of fruits. Gone are foods high in sugar and/or carbohydrates. Attention is also given to foods that run the risk of mycotoxin contamination, such as corn, peanuts and pistachios––these are excluded, as well.

When it comes to meal replacements, it is always critical to read the labels. Often, these supplements are made using foods not permitted on the Phase One Diet, such as rice, grains, corn or other ingredients. They may also include fillers, food coloring agents, artificial ingredients and preservatives. Knowing this, it is important to read the labels––If a meal replacement has ingredients not allowed on the Phase One Diet, it should likely be excluded.

It is also important to assess the nutritional value of whatever meal replacement you are considering. Unfortunately, in today’s world of marketing hype, many supplements do not actually live up to their billing.  Diet.

Often times, meal replacements can be high carbohydrates or sugar, low in protein, lack any healthy fats and contain few vitamins or minerals, or improper forms of those nutrients. These hardly seem fit to take the place of real, nutritive food while on the Phase One

Even with these things considered, meal replacement supplements can remain attractive for convenience’s sake.

Instead of considering meal replacements that do not live up to nutritional standards, consider easy-to-make Phase One options, such as smoothies. Smoothies are a great way to make portable, nutrition-packed Phase One meals quickly. Simply combine any combination of Phase One approved fruits, vegetables, nuts, yogurt and water into a blender.
