Too many fast releasing
carbohydrates lead to weight gain
Traditionally we were taught that carbohydrates
should provide our body with its primary supply of energy. However,
many people have confused fast releasing carbohydrates (pasta,
cakes) and slow releasing carbohydrates (whole grains, vegetables)
eating too many of the former-the tempting, convenient, tasty
variety! Most of us lead sedentary lives, so any excess energy
from carbohydrate-rich food) is stored as fat.
Cereals and toast for breakfast, jacket potato
for lunch, pasta for dinner and rice cakes, cereal bars and
biscuits for snacks?!

How do I include
protein in my daily diet?
If your target
is 100g of protein per day, here's an example of how you can
consume 100g every day:
shake (18.9 g) + 2 tablespoons Formula
3 Personalised Protein Powder(10g )=28.9g
Formula 1 shake (18.9g)+2 tablespoons
Formula 3 Personalised Protein Powder (10g)=28.95 g
Protein Bar(10g) or Soy Nuts (11g) or
3oz/85g of lean chicken (30g) / 1 cup
Adding one to three level tablespoons of protein supplement
powder to your meal replacement shakes can add up to
15g of high quality protein. We will personalise the
programme for you.
And for those concerned about Cholesterol
levels? The inclusion of at least 25g Soya protein per day
as part a diet low in saturated fats can help reduce blood
cholesterol. Two shakes
provide 17.8 g of soya protein(71% of the suggested intake of
25 g). An additional 7.2 grams may be obtained from other foods,
such as soy plus a serving of
nuts (10.6 g soya
protein per 90g serving) or
protein bar (10g) or
protein supplement powder
(4.5g soya protein/6g serving) can provide over 25g of soya
protein. And new

comes in the form of meat, soy products, cheese and dairy products.
However, most of these are in the form of animal proteins, which
add greatly to the bad cholesterol in our bodies. Therefore
we need to look for high quality proteins, in our diet, from
