Here’s a low-down on how it works:
- During the first week, replace your meals with nutritious Almased shakes. Surprisingly, the low-calorie shakes will keep you satisfied.
- Then, in the second week, replace two meals each day with Almased and eat one healthy solid lunch or dinner.
- At the end of the 14 days you’ll feel motivated to ditch unhealthy eating habits and embark on a new healthy diet path that fights cravings and supports weight loss.
Modified fasting is the safe way to fast, so we don’t starve ourselves like with other diets. This way, we get all of the nutrients we need for our metabolism to naturally support good weight loss while holding on to muscle.
Preserving muscle mass is important during any diet, and especially during a fast, as it ensures that the metabolism stays active so the body can continue to lose unwanted pounds.
Keeping metabolism at an optimal level and retaining muscle mass also helps to ensure that you sustain your weight loss once the fasting period is over.
Plus, science suggests that doing a safe, healthy fast can help us hit “reset” on our cravings, an effect that has been shown to last long after the 14 days is over.
