Medical Weight Loss Foods: Alternative Products For Your Diet

Medical Weight Loss Foods

Medical weight loss programs help people lose a significant amount of weight safely under a doctor's care. These programs use meal replacements, prescription medications, counseling, and support to help patients reach their goals.

The programs are designed and led by doctors who specialize in weight loss. The goals are to help people:

  • Lose weight quickly but safely
  • Keep from losing muscle as they lose fat
  • Develop healthy habits they can stick with long-term

Ambari Nutrition offers a line of products designed specifically for medical weight loss patients. These shakes, bars, entrees, and supplements are formulated to promote weight loss and support the transition to a balanced diet. With high-quality proteins, fiber, vitamins and minerals, Ambari Nutrition's products provide optimal nutrition for Low Calorie Diets (LCD) and Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCD).


High Protein Shakes and Bars

Eating enough protein can help you lose weight because it helps you feel full so you eat less. Protein takes longer to digest than carbs or fat, so it keeps you satisfied for longer after eating. This can help you eat fewer calories overall.

Protein also helps you maintain and build muscle as you lose weight. More muscle means you burn more calories, even at rest. Here's a table that shows the pros and cons of each type of protein commonly found in high protein meal replacements:



Protein Type Pros Cons
Whey Protein High biological value. Contains all 9 essential amino acids. Easily digestible. Not suitable for lactose intolerant or milk allergic individuals. Not vegan.
Casein Protein Slow-release property helps control hunger. Maintains muscle mass. Aids in weight management. Not suitable for lactose intolerant or milk allergic individuals. Not vegan.
Soy Protein Complete protein source. Low in fat. Vegan-friendly. Heart-healthy. Gastrointestinal discomfort in some individuals. Contains phytoestrogens.
Pea Protein Easily digestible. Hypoallergenic. Vegan-friendly. Not a complete protein. May be more expensive. Taste may not appeal to all.
Rice Protein Easily digestible. Hypoallergenic. Vegan-friendly. Not a complete protein. May be more expensive. Mild flavor may not appeal.
Hemp Protein Complete protein source. Rich in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Vegan-friendly. Can be more expensive. Taste may not appeal to all.
Egg White Protein High biological value. Contains all 9 essential amino acids. Easily digestible. Not suitable for individuals with egg allergies. Not vegan.
 

Remember, the best protein for you depends on your dietary needs, preferences, and any potential allergies or intolerances.



Tips for incorporating shakes and bars into a medical weight loss plan:

  • Have a shake as a meal replacement for breakfast or lunch to help control calories.
  • Enjoy a bar as a snack to help fight cravings between meals.
  • Use shakes and bars to supplement meals for an extra protein boost.

Meal Replacements

Meal replacements can be an effective tool for weight loss as they help with portion control and calorie reduction. Meal replacement options like shakes, bars, and entrees simplify calorie counting by providing pre-measured, controlled portions.

  • Shakes - Nutrient-dense meal replacement shakes come in portion controlled pouches and in powder form. They provide a convenient breakfast or snack around 160-200 calories.
  • Bars - Portable meal replacement bars make an easy grab-and-go snack. They contain about 160-200 calories, with 15g protein, and good amounts of fiber to help fight hunger between meals.
  • Entrees - Pre-packaged entrees like soups or chili provide a hot, satisfying meal in proper portions.

Ambari Nutrition's meal replacements contain high-quality proteins, good fats, and fiber to promote satiety. They are fortified with vitamins and minerals to prevent deficiencies when reducing calories. With great flavors and textures, they make weight loss simple and enjoyable.


Supplements

Bariatric Multivitamins

Certain supplements may enhance the effects of a reduced calorie diet and exercise plan:

  • Chromium - Can help improve insulin sensitivity and regulate carbohydrate metabolism .
  • Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) - May help reduce body fat mass and increase lean muscle mass .
  • Green tea extract - Contains compounds that may boost metabolism and fat burning .

However, supplements should be used cautiously under medical supervision as they can interact with medications or medical conditions.

Ambari Nutrition offers a line of low calorie diet-friendly supplements to help support nutritional needs during weight loss. These include multivitamins, calcium citrate, vitamin B12, iron, and more.


Conclusion

AmBari Nutrition Products were originally designed and created for Medical Weight Loss. For over 30 years these products have been helping millions lose weight in Commercial & Medical Weight Loss Bariatric Clinics

Many of the products you see on our website are sold in franchised weight loss clinics. These franchise clinics are great places to start your diet. But the cost of running these clinics and paying the medical staff is the reason their products have become priced so high. Many of the customers/patients from these clinics eventually leave the program but still have the knowledge of how to stick to the diet. Those are the people that have become our biggest customers and fans. We offer the same products as those clinics but we can have such low prices on the products because we don't have to pay for a medical staff. Those savings get passed on to you, the customer.

 

It's important to remember that medical weight loss foods are designed to supplement a reduced-calorie diet, not completely replace regular meals. Relying solely on shakes, bars, and supplements can lead to nutritional deficiencies over time.

For best results, meal replacements should be limited to 1-2 per day as part of a comprehensive weight loss plan.

Supplements and vitamins specifically formulated for medical weight loss patients can help prevent nutritional deficiencies.
