Meal Replacements, Balanced Nutrition, and Twinkies?

Feb 21st, 2012 | Category: Young Living Product Blog

Remember the nutrition professor a few years ago who lost 27 pounds on a Twinkie diet? It seems pretty unbelievable (and we definitely don’t recommend it), but he was able to pull it off simply because he burned more calories than he took in.

I say it’s time we throw out all the fad diets and other gimmicks and get back to the basics of losing weight. Yes, it’s critical to burn more calories than we consume, but we must also make sure that our bodies get a balanced array of nutrients. At only 190 calories per serving, Young Living’s Balance Complete™ helps do both. This incredible super food combines a low-calorie meal replacement with powerful, nutritive ingredients to energize, cleanse, and support proper digestion and colon health.*

Here’s a quick look at some of the key ingredients in Balance Complete:

Proprietary V-fiber™ Blend (larch polysaccharides, brown rice bran, guar gum, konjac, xanthan gum, and chicory root fiber extract)

  • This blend provides 11 grams of dietary fiber per serving (44 percent of the daily recommended value) to help control hunger and support digestion.

    • It contains 8.75 grams of soluble fiber, which slows digestion by attracting water and turning to a gel. Soluble fiber is also known to lower cholesterol.
    • It has 2.27 grams of insoluble fiber, which appears to speed the passage of foods through the stomach and intestines and adds bulk to stool.

Certified Whey Protein

  • Whey protein provides the body with an amino acid profile for muscle strength and recovery.
  • Young Living’s whey protein is grass-fed, hormone free, pesticide free, and antibiotic free.
  • It is low in fat and is typically about 75 percent pure protein by weight.

Proprietary Enzyme Complex (lactase, lipase, bromelain, papain, and amylase)

  • Lactase aids in the digestion of lactose (milk sugar).
  • Lipase aids in the digestion, transportation, and processing of dietary lipids/fats (e.g., triglycerides, fats, oils).
  • Bromelain and papain may aid in the digestion of proteins.
  • Amylase aids in the breakdown of starch.

Suggested Use

  • Add 2 scoops of Balance Complete to 8–10 oz. of cold water or milk of your choice. Shake, stir, or blend until smooth. For added flavor, add fruit or essential oils.
  • Replace 1–2 daily meals with Balance Complete.

Balance Complete supplies a third of the recommended daily value for many vitamins and minerals (see nutrition facts here), making it a perfect complement to any weight-management regimen. It’s a complete and nutritionally dynamic meal that provides generous amounts of fiber and other nutrients that cleanse through improving elimination and digestion, balancing blood sugar, and helping control hunger.*
