Shake Up Your Weight Loss

In This Episode

To put a cap on weight-loss resolutions for the new year, Neal and Daena are discussing meal replacement shakes today.

We take a look at what a meal replacement shake should include, and how it differs from just protein powder.

Neal talks about what to look for on the label, the different types of proteins, and what NOT to add to your shakes and smoothies.

He also explains sweeteners used in meal replacement shakes, amino acids, fat, carbs, and why anything marketed to athletes is not for civilian use.
