Shane Warne is back in the headlines again – and this time it has nothing to do with text scandals! Shane was recently snapped in London looking decidely thinner than he used to back in the day of wearing the baggy green cap and, as it turns out, his weight loss has been attributed to him following a ‘diet’ where he is replacing two meals a day with diet shakes. He has apparently lost 12kg in 3 months but I think most of you would agree, Warney looks positively ill!
The problem with using shakes to lose weight is that you run the risk of becoming deficient in some essential vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Depriving your body of such important nutrients can definitely put you more at risk of developing health problems (such as poor immunity, stress / anxiety etc) and leave you looking and feeling ‘positively unhealthy’ while losing weight.
More significantly, the biggest problem with diet shakes is the inevitable ‘rebound’ gain that occurs after using such drastic weight loss measures. In fact, recent research shows that most people who use diet shakes to lose weight, will put back on all weight within two years, and most with an additional 15% gain!
The Natural Way does not advocate ‘quick fix’ or ‘fad’ weight loss methods. This is simply because these types of diets, including the shake method, is not a sustainable way to lose weight. The Natural Way helps their clients’ get to their goal weight by allowing them to eat REAL food and teaching them all the lifestyle skills they need to know in order to keep their weight off.
