Perfect Quick & Easy Breakfast to Lose Weight by Weight Loss Philadelphia

mealreplacementweightlossshake

perfectweightlossbreakfast

Part of  the reason why most patients in our medical weight loss program in Philadelphia and Bucks County are losing 2-5 5 pounds a week is because  we are always trying to give them delicious recipes that taste wonderful and also facilitate weight loss.  I would say probably 90% of the patients always tell us that they usually skip breakfast or they wind up having a bagel or jelly donut with a couple cups of coffee for breakfast. That old cliché that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is totally true. But even more true is the fact that the quality of the food that you eat for breakfast is the most important thing.

But everyone complains that they don’t have time to make a good quality fat burning breakfast first thing in the morning. But now I am happy to tell everyone that we have the perfect solution for this problem.

We have found a really tasty and super quality meal replacement shake. This shake would make an excellent breakfast that will give you tons of vital nutrients and enough protein in order to put your body into fat burning mode for the day. It comes in a variety of flavors like chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and even cream-sickle. Personally my favorite is the chocolate and also happens to be my wife’s favorite as well.

We’ve tried a multitude of different meal replacement shakes throughout the years and my wife told me that each and every one of them taste like cardboard. I am happy to say that this shake gets the approval from my wife because she thinks that it taste really good.

So if you are someone who usually skips breakfast because you don’t have enough time to make it, this is an excellent alternative for you.

The shake is ‘Soutions4’  and is only available from medical weight loss centers. It is made from quality products and just 2 scoops of this shake mixed with water will give you 20 grams of protein and only 180 calories and it is totally sugar free. It’s packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, B6, B12, C, D, E, Biotin, calcium citrate, chromium, folic acid, magnesium and potassium.  It will also give you a good healthy dose of important amino acids that are necessary  in order to facilitate your body’s natural fat burning process.

The most amazing thing is that this shake gives you 20 grams of protein is totally sugar free and 2 scoops mixed with water is only 180 calories.

Not only is this shake awesome for breakfast but it also makes a great lunch as well.

In fact, lots of our patients are trying to lose weight a bit more quickly than usual because they are getting married or they have a class reunion or special function and in order to lose their weight quickly they will have a shake for breakfast and a shake for lunch and then for dinner they will have a good healthy meal. They may even have 1 or 2 snacks a day.

So if you are just looking for a quick healthy fat burning breakfast  this shake is for you. And if you are looking to lose weight a bit more quickly you could have the shake for both breakfast and luch.

So  in my opinion this is the greatest meal replacement / protein shake out there on the market today. And again this isn’t something that you can get in a vitamin shop  or the nutrition store because it’s only available in medical weight loss centers.

If you do not want to lose too much weight too quickly you can always add half a banana or a half cup strawberries or blueberries to the shake.

Throughout this website and in our YouTube channel you could use this meal replacement shake in every place that I have noted to use protein powder. And you can also use the shake for an awesome recovery drink after your workouts and exercise sessions.

If you need help with losing weight or if you have hit a plateau just call us  At 215-821-7336.
