The Herbalife Nutrition multinational offers food substitute products - such as F1 shakes and F1 Express bars - that are effective both for weight loss and maintenance, if accompanied by a balanced diet and regular exercise practice
Overweight has become a public health problem in developed countries. It is estimated that 40% of the adult population in the world is overweight, while 13% can be classified as obese.
The alarming overweight figures are due to the imbalance between the calories consumed and those actually used by the organism, the usual intake of hypercalic foods, an increase in sedentarism and the lack of regular exercise, especially in the big cities.
The solution goes through the adoption of a more active lifestyle and a healthy diet. However, good food is affected by multiple factors such as lack of time, the need to eat outside of home, the size of rations and the amount of nutrients present in the food consumed.
In this context, nutritional supplements can be a practical and useful help for those who find it difficult to choose the right food combination, without affecting the weight.
Substitutes of food are, in fact, a growing trend. A study of the Council for Responsible Nutrition of the United States, determined that 77% of Americans consume some supplement or substitute food in a regular way, figures that are easily extrapolated to Europe. Most consumers are women between the ages of 35 and 54.
How to consume food substitutes
Food substitutes or food substitutes are easy to prepare products that contain a limited amount of calories, high quality proteins and essential nutrients.
In the European Union, the use of food substitutes is safe, since for sale on the market they must comply with detailed and concise indications regarding their nutritional composition: energy content, quantity and type of fats, quantity and quality of proteins, vitamins and minerals. These requirements are contained in European Commission Regulation 2016/14133.
The French Federation of Industries Linked with Specialized Nutrition (SFNS) recently released the results of a investigation among 112 consumers of food substitutes, in which it was demonstrated that these products help maintenance and weight loss.
If what is sought is to lose weight, substitutes should replace two of the main meals of the day and be accompanied by a low calorie diet. Since weight loss also leads to a loss of fatty tissue, food substitutes act in these cases as an important source of protein that contributes to muscle maintenance.
For its part, when weight has already been lost and what is desired is to maintain the body constitution, replace a main meal a day with the substitutes, in combination with a low calorie diet, would be sufficient. Chistes cortos
