Ultrameal is a meal-replacement shake made by Metagenics. We like it because it has a low glycemic index. The shake was designed to, ‘along with a healthy dietary program and regular exercise… to support a healthy body composition by targeting fat loss and helping to maintain lean muscle.’ (Ultrameal label)
The 8 Weeks to Wellness program involves eating more, smaller, and balanced meals. By mixing up an Ultrameal shake twice a day, it takes out the preparation of two of those meals each day. Each shake gets two scoops of the flavored powder. You may choose to mix your shake with water, almond milk or skim milk.
After the first week, when you are allowed to add fruit (carbohydrates) back into your diet, you may choose to add frozen berries or a banana to your shake.
We have a variety of Ultrameal shake flavors at the clinic. Some of our favorites include ‘Chocolate Mint,’ ‘Vanilla,’ ‘Dutch Chocolate,’ ‘Strawberry Supreme,’ ‘Mocha,’ and ‘Peach.’ Some of us even enjoy mixing a scoop of two different flavors for a more unique flavor.
If you aren’t a big fan of drinking meal-replacement shakes, ask about the Ultrameal bars.
Be sure to stop by our front desk each week to pick out your ‘flavor of the week’ and let us know what you think of them!
