food replacement (soyulent etc)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

As I am getting older (55 now) I find that I am too gaining to much weight and it's getting harder to get rid of it, specially with the heat.

 

So, I have been considering to try one of these food replacement drinks, Souylent is I think the most popular, but there are a couple of more, like Nutberg, and the Chinese Ruffood.

 

1. Anyone used any of these in Thailand ? Do you mind to share your experience ?

 

2. Anyone know where to buy any of this stuff locally ?

 

Many Thanks !

Doubt you will find any expats into it. Try looking up keto diet. You will never starve and its extremely effective. Just my 2 cents

The previous post about "ubuy" it's actually some sort of a forwarding service. Quoting around 4,500 baht for shipping, not including customs ... 

 

I'm well familiar with keto - don't like it and couldn't make it work. But thanks anyway 🙂

 

Thanks for your help madman !

Eat smaller portions, drink more water, force yourself to walk for 30 mins day 5 days per week...stay away from alcoholic beverages or reduce consumption...

 

Save your money to take a vacation...

Sherm, read up and study this concept:

 

create caloric deficit

 

soyulent, cow jizz smoothies, all that stuff is basically the above just simplified for noobs.

 

Being slim takes discipline - really easy to stuff cake down your throat at all hours of the day.

Why will food replacement work? it's because the calories in a meal replacement is low.

 

So just watch what you eat count the calories and do more exercises will do, don't need to waste money on expensive meal replacement that only have a few flavours

soy is bad for men

Hasn't seemed to affect men eating the traditional Asian diet for thousands of years. It's a myth that Soy creates man-boobs by lowering testosterone. Chinese men don't suffer from that - as their population demonstrates - only males eating Western diets containing overloads of meat and dairy products. 

 

Read a bit more about nutrition before making an incorrect response. Here's one link:

OP - it is clear from your post and response, you're looking for an easy solution. Not going to happen, sorry. 

 

If your health is otherwise good, your doctor should give the go-ahead for you to try out Intermittent fasting for three days. An 'easy' way for beginners is to refrain from consuming anything except water for 16 hours a day, and eating (more or less) what you like in the 8 hour feeding window.   

 

So, if your last daily meal before bed time is over by 8pm, your first meal next day is timed at noon. It takes about 12 hours for the body to reach a point when it's consuming fat.

 

Read up about it, because any calorie counting diet is not long-term effective as you would lose weight only to put it back on when you return to your 'normal' consumption.

 

You would also have to review your lifestyle. Exercise regularly and eat more healthily - dump sugar and packaged products - with an emphasis on consuming more fresh vegetables and limiting meat and dairy. Once your palate gets used to it, no problem.
