Dont go there!

Weight loss shakes just dont work long term.

I tried it and you are full but it wrecks havoc on your gut, not pretty!

It's very strict. We did it and DH dropped 17 kilos in about two months but we have both put some back on. We took a bit of the theory and applied it to our day to day living.

I wouldn't bother now though

If it's not sustainable as a long term lifestyle then it isn't worth your time or your money.

I'll tell you how it basically works. For the first week you eat nothing but protein, 6 times a day. Then you introduce vegetables, but no starchy foods.

Once a week you can have a cheat day, followed by another day of just protein.

Wash rinse repeat.

Glad you asked the question OP...my SIL has given me 5 Body trim cookbooks plus the DVD and I'm going to start my own little version of the program. I'm not going to do the shakes, just cook all our meals from the recipes. But its interesting to hear whether it worked for people.

unsure.gif I think it is sustainable
Breakfast:: 100g or less protein ( eg eggs, bacon)  1 piece of fruit or yoghurt, complex carb ( eg weetbix, oatmeal or whole grain bread ) any veges such as grilled tomato, mushrooms and baby spinich
Morning snack:: 50g protein ( eg meat, tofu, lentils, cottage cheese, twice a week  nuts )
Lunch:: 100g or less protein with salad or vegetables
Afternoon snack: same as morning snack
Dinner:: 100g or less protein with salad or vegetable ( eg stir fry, soups, marinated meats, curry)
After dinner:: same as morning snack

2-3 L water daily and milk in tea/coffee ok or diet drinks

As a quick snack on occasion you could have a shake or protein bar etc

Perhaps sustainable if your activity level was low to moderate, so perhaps that will work for you.  It would leave me feeling starved, as my activity level is very high.  I wouldn't go the shakes and protein bars unless they are low in sugar, I haven't seen the ingredients list but be careful because they could lead to you feeling even hungrier.

Felt I should clear that up, a bit confusing sorry.

My best friend did it, has to be the most ridiculous diet I have ever seen,  Any diet that restricts fresh raw vegetables (ie not allowed on your protein only day) is completely unsound.  her and her husband followed it strictly and hardly lost anything

I should have added that is the weight loss phase and then you start adding more carbs etc once at goal weight. It's a fair bit more food than I'm use to even though I am overweight, it was that I was choosing the wrong foods

You can Google the plans if you want to try before you buy.

I followed it and lost some weight, but then I got REALLY sick of all the protein, especially protein snacks. Be careful of not eating too much processed meat with it either as that can lead to kidney stones and other issues.

The best thing about it was probably that I rarely felt hungry and it taught me the importance of making sure I eat protein at every main meal if I want to feel sated.

Absolutely avoid processed food if possible.  You are better going higher calorie, non processed.  Not all calories are equal and that is important to remember.  Calories of hot chips (for example) is not equal to calories of chicken salad (also example).

Most processed meats have little to no nutritional value, I would avoid those.  Eat eggs instead.

This is coming from someone who has lost 15kg, and further has lost a large % of fat (weight has stayed the same due to muscle gain).  Not every one works the same way of course but it is pretty universal that processed food is not as good for you as unprocessed.  

Good luck.
