March 19th, 2019 by Transform HQ

Weight loss is tough, there’s no doubt about it, especially with 5 of the BIGGEST weight loss problems that have most likely destroyed your weight loss goals and hopes, as well as thousands of other peoples’ as well.

These problems cause people to give up and quit. They cause people to lose time, results, money, and, ultimately, the will and motivation to lose weight.

But we’re going to show you how the best meal replacement shake for weight loss can solve each of these 5 problems. We’re also going to reveal what Chris and Heidi Powell have created after years of being in the weight loss industry.

Here’s what we’re going to cover in this blog. Feel free to click on any of these links below to be taken to that section:

What Exactly Is a Meal Replacement Shake?

best meal replacement shakes for weight loss

First off, let’s quickly talk about what meal replacement shakes are.

A good meal replacement shake is calorie-controlled, nutritious, and something you can use to replace an unhealthy meal.

A great meal replacement shake is healthy, nutritious, low in carbohydrates, but goes one step further: it solves the hunger-controlling problem of weight loss, too.

Because what good is it if you eat a meal and then get hungry right after? If you eat a meal and feel hangry an hour later. This will cause you to snack and eat even more calories between meals, taking you out of your weight-loss calorie zone.

Meal replacement shakes are generally very convenient to use: just mix these with water, milk, or a preferred liquid, and you’re good to go. You can also use them in recipes to make healthy, tasty treats, like those seen here!

Chris and Heidi have drawn on their combined 20+ years in the weight loss industry as well as teaching hundreds of thousands of individuals through their hit TV show, books, and training to create the perfect meal replacement shake: the Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake.

Out of all the supplements and products that Chris and Heidi could have come out with first, they made the conscious decision to develop the best meal replacement shake.

Chris and Heidi know how destructive these 5 weight loss problem are to people’s goals, and with a well-developed meal replacement shake, they can solve these problems, too!

We’re going to run through the 5 biggest weight loss problems, show how they are solved with a Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake, and explain everything you need to know about meal replacement shakes!

Problem #1: Uncontrollable Hunger & Cravings

Maybe you cuddle up on the couch after a long day of meetings at the office and fire up your favorite TV show.

Maybe you’re laying down to go to bed, or maybe you’re out running errands/at school/at work.

And then those hunger pains strike, and the cravings sneak up on you. You just ate a meal, but it didn’t really fill you up, or it didn’t keep you feeling full. So you eat some leftovers or something from your fridge, and the hunger feelings go away…. for a little bit, that is!

Not being able to control hunger between meals is no doubt the #1 enemy to weight loss. It is the biggest villain out there, causing you to consume excess calories and take you out of your weight loss calorie-zone.


Chris + Heidi’s Low-Carb Meal Replacement Shake tackles this hunger problem head on, and here’s how. Each serving contains:

  • 20g of protein in a tri-phase protein blend: Each serving provides 3 well-studied protein sources in a specially formulated blend to help curb hunger, as well as support muscle repair.
  • VitaFiber®: One of our hunger-blocking powerhouses, it’s a mixture of short-chain carbohydrates made of glucose molecules which are linked with each other through a digestion-resistant bonding.  The digestion-resistant bonding creates a feeling of fullness that lasts longer.

This meal replacement shake will help you keep your hunger under control, so you can eat healthy, tasty meals, and stay in your calorie weight-loss zone.

Problem #2: “I just don’t have time to eat healthy!”

Job, errands, family, social activities, things to do at home, school… the list goes on and on. We totally understand, your day-to-day life can get so busy, and that’s a bit of an understatement!

All this running around and chaos can make it all too easy to skip meals, causing you to become tired and “hangry.” This can lead to under-eating, making it difficult to stay on track with your weight loss goals because you’re not fueling your body properly.

This can also set you up to eat too much at your next meal time, causing you to consume too many calories each day, essentially taking you out of the weight loss calorie zone.

Sometimes it might feel like there is absolutely no time to eat a well-balanced, healthy meal to fuel your body -a meal that is both delicious and super convenient to prepare.

That’s where Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake comes in, helping you solve this problem.


The Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake can help you solve this “no time to eat healthy” problem you face every day.

Each serving of this Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake is packed with important vitamins and minerals, crucial macronutrients your body needs to stay fueled, and hunger-controlling ingredients.

And the best part? You can whip up a calorie-controlled, amazingly delicious shake in a matter of seconds. Just add a level scoop of your favorite flavor to 12 ounces of cold water, almond milk, or your liquid of choice. Shake it up, and you’re good to go.

No more needing to go without a meal. In a matter of seconds, you have a delicious, healthy meal you can take with you as you run to your next appointment!

Problem #3: Eating Healthy is Incredibly Expensive

cost of a meal
For starters, the average American spends quite a bit on eating out, just look at the infographic above! Did you know that the average American eats out of the house around 4-5 times a week? Or that the average meal is about $12.75? That can add up really quick! Especially considering these stats aren’t specific to “healthy meals,” but just eating out in general.

You may be thinking, “Ok, I really want to eat healthy meals, but they’re just too expensive!”

Eating healthy meals needs to be sustainable because it needs to be something you can do for life. If it’s going to cost you too much, it will be hard to justify sacrificing a portion of your hard-earned money. Also, if eating healthy meals is going to be more expensive and more inconvenient than fast food drive-thrus, it will be nearly impossible to stick with. 

What is one simple way to eat a balanced, affordable meal? One that you can throw into your current eating regimen to help reduce calories, help you feel full, and something that won’t break the bank–but actually save you money in the long-run?


The Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake provides 28 servings per container. That’s 28 delicious on-the-go convenient meals.

That comes out to be just $2.14 per serving (or $1.50 when you subscribe and save). That’s a fraction of what the average person in the United States spends on breakfast, let alone an average meal!

Whether you decide to have 1 or 2 shakes a day as part of your eating plan, these are cheap, affordable, tasty meals that will help you stay on track with your weight loss goals.

That’s right. These are 1-2 calorie-controlled meals each day you don’t need to worry about!

Problem #4: Don’t Know What to Eat Or Where to Start

Do you want to eat healthy meals, but you’re just not sure how to even start? This can be discouraging, and it can even be the roadblock that keeps you from ever starting.

Breakfast is such an important meal of the day. It helps you fuel up. It helps to get those metabolic fires going, and eating a healthy meal within an hour of when you wake up is a great way to start your day. It kind of sets the tone.

One of the best ways to start your nutrition plan is by owning your breakfast. But what should you eat for breakfast? How long is it going to take to whip up a filling, tasty meal, especially when you’re in a time crunch and need to run out the door?


You can whip up a tasty, amazing, filling meal in a matter of seconds with the Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake every day. In just one serving, you can get important vitamins, minerals, calories, macronutrients, and hunger-controlling ingredients.

By replacing your current breakfast meal (or by not skipping your breakfast) with a low carb meal replacement shake, you’ll be able to cut your calories down, satisfy your cravings, and control your hunger.

Problem #5: Eating Healthy Tastes Gross

Ever tried to eat healthy meals before, only to throw them away or give up on your goal because they tasted, well, like garbage?

Think eating healthy means shoveling down bland, boring foods, restricting yourself to salads without dressings, or dedicating the rest of your life to just chicken, rice, and broccoli? If you do, you’re definitely not alone in this thinking, but we couldn’t be more happy to say that you’re completely wrong!

Let’s face it: if it doesn’t taste delicious, you’re not going to eat it. You may eat these foods for a couple of days, but you’ll give up soon after.

Taste is so important when it comes to eating healthy for weight loss. Let us repeat that: taste is king when it comes to creating a successful weight loss transformation.

You need to be able to enjoy what you’re eating. Eating healthy, delicious meals will keep you motivated. These meals will give you something to look forward to, satisfy your cravings, and help you stay on track with your nutrition goals, 


Eating healthy can be absolutely delicious. That’s just another roadblock that the Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake helps you overcome.

Chris and Heidi didn’t just spend years perfecting the ultimate low carb meal replacement shake that was nutritious and packed with important macro and micronutrients you need to stay fueled, they put their shake through multiple tests and formulations to create the best-tasting meal replacement shake for weight loss.

The Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake

a picture of the best meal replacement shakes for weight loss
A good meal replacement shake should taste good (hopefully!) and provide a good amount of calories as well as vitamins, minerals, protein, fat, and carbs.

The best meal replacement shake does all of the above, plus attacks the hunger problem. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again:

If you don’t feel full after eating a meal, what’s going to stop you from indulging in more food and snacks when the uncontrollable hunger hits? If you can’t control your hunger, you won’t see the weight loss results you’re after.

That’s exactly why Chris and Heidi formulated their meal replacement shake.

Each serving is packed with not just 20g of protein (3 sources for extended digestion), but VitaFiber® as well, to help increase feelings of fullness.

It’s also extremely delicious and smooth, providing:

  • Daily Vitamin Blend
  • 165-180 calories
  • 5-6g of net carbs.

Is A Meal Replacement Powder A Protein Powder?

Protein Shake what fits your lifestyle
You may be wondering what the difference is between a meal replacement shake and a protein shake.

Here’s the difference.

Meal replacement shakes are designed with:

  • Enough calories to replace a meal
  • Vitamins and minerals
  • Important macronutrients

A meal replacement shake can (and should) have protein it. Protein is an important macronutrient you need for a balanced meal.

For example, the Chris + Heidi Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake packs in 20g of protein. It is still a meal replacement shake, though, considering the entire nutritional profile (calories, fats, carbs, vitamins, minerals).

A protein shake generally:

  • Is lower in calories
  • Contains protein and other ingredients to support workout recovery

A protein shake isn’t designed to provide a balanced meal. It provides protein, but generally isn’t concerned with offering additional vitamins, minerals, and balanced fat and carbs.
