Lose those winter pounds effectively with healthy, natural shakes...
Winter is finally coming to an end and as the days slowly get longer and warmer, we're already dreaming of beaches, holidays and a new summer wardrobe.
But which of us hasn't over-indulged during those dark, cold days? If you're feeling the need to shed excess pounds, now's the perfect time to get started. With the superior weight-loss programme from Almased® you can lose fat with meal-replacement shakes and online recipes that are scientifically proven to work. It's Germany's best-selling weight-loss product and its all-natural formula is backed by an impressive 25 years of research.
The science behind the shakes
Safe and effective, Almased® is a meal replacement powder that uses a scientifically proven formula** that includes natural raw ingredients containing vital nutrients and essential amino acids, plus enzymes for easy digestion. The shakes are packed with more protein than any other meal-replacement programme, so each 230-kcal shake will keep you feeling satisfied until your next meal, banishing those dreaded hunger pangs.
Also suitable for people with diabetes,Almased®has a very low glycaemic index (GI), so your body draws energy from fat stores, rather than from essential muscle.*** And if you replace your dinner with the shake, the weight loss process continues, even while you sleep. Clever!
Almased® uses only the finest ingredients, such as fermented soya for energy, probiotic yogurt to strengthen your immune system, and enzyme-rich honey to settle the stomach. Each delicious shake provides your body with the essential nutrients you need to stay healthy while losing weight. What's more, it is clean weight loss in every sense, containing no artificial flavours, fillers, stimulants or preservatives. It's also gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.
Try the 2-week weight-loss Figure Plan
The Almased® Figure Plan is based on four simple phases, providing you with a nutritional plan for each day. This includes deliciously easy, home-cooked meals that are perfect for keeping you on track.
Days 1-3: Start with three Almased® shakes each day to kick-start your weight loss, plus an optional bowl of vegetable soup. You should also aim to drink 1.6-2 litres of fluid each day.
