One group took Almased in place of meals; the other group had a standard North American diet.
The Almased group experienced increased thermogenesis, better absorption of nutrients, enhanced fat burning, improved appetite and use of carbs, and less of a tendency to gain fat.
The study authors said this proves that “a calorie is not just a calorie” — meaning that a high-protein low-glycemic diet, one with the same number of calories as a regular diet, can offer more benefits for energy metabolism, fat burning and weight loss.
This new research confirms the results of a 2018 study, which showed that Almased can help the body lose weight and burn more fat, all with less effort.
The authors concluded that Almased provides a “metabolic advantage” compared to a regular diet.
