Guys, surveys show that there’s one secret thing we hate more than anything — our “beer belly.”
Truth is, while copious amounts of beer can cause temporary “belly bloat,” an actual beer belly is really caused by too much of any type of calories over time: like regular Viking-worthy meals, fatty fare and all those sugary snacks and starchy selections.
Combined with plummeting testosterone levels, regular beasting can hit our weight with a gut punch, and we do mean that literally.
Fortunately though, guys, we don’t need to live like monks — always eating perfectly and never doing any naughty noshing.
In fact, successful weight loss definitely does not require hunger and denial.
Plus, saying “no” to food sends a man-sized appetite into starvation mode, slows down fat-burning metabolism, and makes you feel like Hagar the Horrible when his wife’s mad at him!
So eat often, and don’t go hungry — but don’t go hog-wild either.
Fortunately, the right high-protein shake can fill in nutritional gaps each day, helping you get more good nutrition instead of either skipping meals or reaching for bad stuff.
Featuring three primary ingredients — non-GMO soy, honey and yogurt — Almased nourishes the body at a cellular level to help boost metabolism and support fat-burn.
Below are some pro tips to kickstart your weight-loss along with the 4-1-1 about protein-drenched Almased, but more on that in a minute…
Make sure to eat!
Guys, don’t listen to those YouTube weight-loss “wizards” who tell you that the hungrier you are, the faster you’ll lose weight — they’re wrong!
Starving actually shocks your body into “OMG” mode and slows down metabolism.
The body then clings — for dear life — onto every single ounce of fat you've got, all to avoid the anticipated famine your lizard brain thinks is coming.
Start with one or two normal-sized meals every day as part of your eating plan, and be sure to include a healthy snack or two, like toasted pumpkin seeds, nuts, edamame, popcorn or an apple.
Plus, don’t forget about fiber, since fiber reduces sugar cravings and keeps you feeling full longer.
And make double-sure you’re getting enough high-quality protein, and we don’t mean the double-arches kind!
Again, one solution to help you tackle your healthy eating goals is Almased, which, in addition to the top-quality protein you read about above, also boasts amino acids and other key nutrients, all in a natural powder for super-easy mixing.
Whether you use Almased for healthy snacking, meal replacement or just extra nutrition, you get to decide what your diet looks like, what meals you eat and what your goals are.
Do a diet you like!
The right diet program for you is the one that keeps you looking forward to the delicious and nutritious real foods that you love.
Remember, your diet isn’t the enemy; it’s like the bro who sticks by you through thick or thin, no questions asked.
Plus, it’s important that we lose weight right — in a safe and healthy way. Fad diets are definitely not the answer. Plus, they can often be dangerous.
For example, the keto diet promotes eating a diet that’s at least 75% fat! Even though its fans swear by it, this fad diet is risky and not anything that most people could ever stick to.
Almased is different.
In fact, in a landmark 2020 study with 19 healthy people who received either Almased alone or a standard diet, when taking Almased the participants were able to significantly burn extra fat by turning more nutrients into energy than they were able to with a regular diet.
This led the researchers to say that Almased provides a "metabolic advantage" compared to a regular diet.
Focus on what you can eat!
Keep your eye on the ball and all those clean simple eats that you can have while dieting for weight loss and lifestyle change.
It also helps to remove most unwanted, unhealthy foods from your fridge and your line of sight.
Every serving of Almased is packed with 27 grams of high-quality protein.
Compare this to those pound-watching and fast-slimming products, most of which max out at 10–12 grams of protein per serving.
Even that nutrition bar with the metal-sounding name — you know the one we mean — only offers 4 grams of protein.
Almased delivers, plus it’s a solid addition to a healthy real-world diet.
Believe in yourself!
You know what you want, so don't let self-doubt cloud your motivation. Keep your “head talk” positive and focus on the results you want and your willingness to power through.
As Toni Sorenson said, "Weight loss doesn't begin in the gym with a dumbbell; it starts in your head with a decision."
Lose weight the right way!
Losing weight too quickly can lead to muscle loss, extreme fatigue, dehydration, malnutrition and even gallstones.
While “quick and fast” weight loss can be good, if done carefully, unhealthy weight loss is always the wrong way to go.
Almased is a meal-replacement shake formula that’s naturally sourced from non-GMO soy, cultured yogurt, and enzyme-rich raw honey.
