Medical Weight Loss Protein Shakes


AmBari Nutrition's fantastic line of medical weight loss protein shakes are a convenient way to increase your daily protein intake. These shakes can be useful for people who have difficulty getting enough protein from food, such as bariatric patients, athletes, and individuals following a weight loss diet. AmBari Nutrition's protein shakes were originally only available through medical weight loss programs, but are now available direct to the consumer.

It is always best to consult with a doctor or a registered dietitian before starting any new supplement or making significant changes to your diet, as not all protein shakes may be appropriate for everyone.

What Are Medical Weight Loss Shakes?

Medical weight loss shakes are meal replacement shakes formulated to help manage weight through careful calorie control and balanced nutrition, and are usually, but not always, part of a medically supervised weight loss diet. These shakes provide key macros, vitamins and minerals in a predetermined serving size to promote healthy, sustainable weight loss. 

For individuals struggling to lose excess body fat due to poor dietary habits or lack of nutrition knowledge, medical weight loss shakes offer an efficient solution for safe, healthy weight loss goals. By swapping 1-2 meals per day with these shakes, most people create the necessary 3,500+ calorie deficit each week to spur fat burning. The controlled calories and macronutrients in the shakes also help mitigate hunger, cravings and energy crashes. 


Medical weight loss shakes are nutritionally balanced meal replacements designed specifically to aid weight loss efforts. ~ Dr. K.D. Huffman

They have the following defining features:

  • Formulated with protein, healthy fats, carbs, vitamins and minerals
  • Provide balanced nutrition in an easy-to-consume shake
  • Come in pre-packaged servings with predetermined calorie counts
  • Allow precise tracking of calorie and nutrient intake
  • Engineered to keep users satisfied between meals
  • Support healthy weight loss through caloric deficits
Medical Weight Loss Protein Shake

Unlike traditional protein shakes or mass gainers, medical weight loss protein shakes provide more comprehensive nutrition to replace whole meals. They supply a balance of the macronutrients (protein, carbs, fat) needed to support the body along with vital micronutrients that might be lacking in very low calorie diets. By swapping one or two meals per day with these shakes, people can more easily control calories to create sustained caloric deficits without extreme hunger or nutritional deficiencies.

 

Who Can Benefit from Medical Weight Loss Shakes?

  • Those with significant weight to lose (25+ lbs)
    • Create calorie deficit for ongoing fat loss
  • People who struggle with portion control
    • Pre-portioned servings provide caloric control
  • Individuals too busy for traditional diet prep
    • Shakes are convenient and portable
  • Anyone needing an easy, balanced meal option
    • Complete nutrition when unable to prepare meals
  • Those wanting to kickstart a healthy lifestyle
    • Facilitates initial weight loss momentum

Additionally, weight loss shakes may appeal to:

  • Picky eaters or those with limited healthy food options
  • People who experience energy crashes or hunger with calorie deficits
  • Individuals who have hit a weight loss plateau
  • Those seeking doctor recommended medical weight loss
    • Shakes often part of clinical programs
  • Anyone needing pre/post workout nutrition
