This column is more about exposing events or opinions on events, so as to achieve the purpose of sublimating people's spirits.
A few days ago, I asked a girl from the company if she wanted to order takeaway. She said that to lose weight, she had to drink a meal replacement.
I asked her what a meal replacement is, and she asked me back: "Aren't you looking at Moments? Meal replacement has become popular recently."
I wanted to make a fool of myself, and asked again: "What is a circle of friends?" I didn't expect that she gave me a roll of eyes and ignored me again. To
Lao Hei, I surfed the Internet for many years, but I didn't expect that at this time, I was alive and well like a spirited guy from the Internet, so I checked it online. To
I found that the online reviews of meal replacements are a bit polarized: On the one hand, Jimei people think this thing is a miraculous effect on weight loss, and they can lose several kilograms a day, which is recommended. To
However, there are also a group of people who think that this thing is pickled fish, which is sour and redundant. To
Today I’m going to pick up a meal replacement. To
Since the readers of the official account accounted for 75% of the old men, there must be many straight men who are straighter than the old black. I think it is necessary to give you a popular science on what is a meal replacement. To
Meal replacement, we can simply understand it as food that can replace a regular meal. To
According to this concept, we can call snacks such as biscuits and preserved fruits a meal replacement. Some people want to eat soil at the end of the month, and it seems that there is nothing wrong with calling soil a meal replacement.
But now this concept has slowly changed. Now when we talk about meal replacements, we refer more to meal replacement powders, meal replacement shakes, and meal replacement energy bars.
Meal replacement was originally invented by programmers to solve the problem of eating. To
For professions like programmers, doctors, and engineers, overtime is the norm. No kidding, when Lao Hei rushed to manuscripts, sometimes it was like Harvard's 2:30 am anti-pornography scene, so busy that he didn't even have time to lift his pants. To
Later meal replacement powder was born in their hands. Just a simple preparation, a few minutes can solve a meal perfectly.
Before I wrote this article, I had never eaten a meal replacement. Later, I tried a bottle of prostitute from a colleague. To
The bottle contains powdered solids, just like protein powder, which needs to be flushed with water. Since I am using cold water, the powder does not melt, but I can drink it all at once. To
Its taste is like a reconstituted milk powder with a few degrees lower in scent. Although it is not unpleasant, it is definitely not delicious.
The instructions say to drink one bottle at a time, but after I finished the first sip, I entered the sage mode and never wanted to drink the second sip. To
But in order to experience the effect of meal replacement, I still drank it in tears. To
After the meal replacement powder was launched, it was only active in a small circle for a long time. Because the audience is too small, not many people know. To
Straight men don’t make money, so meal replacement products decided to change their mindset and target the female market.
In the past two years, the craze for weight loss has spread. Seeing that the young lady in Douyin's legs are getting longer and longer, her waist is getting thinner, and her chin is getting more and more pointed. These potential stocks patted the fat on their waist and determined to lose weight.
Meal replacements that focus on weight loss came into being.
I took a look on Taobao and found that the sales of meal replacements are indeed considerable, and many products have sold more than 10,000+. To
In the comment area, there are many comments like "I lost XX catties in a few days".
In the advertisements of these meal replacement products, there are many professional terms that I did not know before, such as collagen, nicotinamide, erythritol, ketogenic diet, zero carbohydrate replacement, and whey protein isolate. . . See me for a while. Is there really any black technology in meal replacement?
在这些代餐产品的广告中，有很多我以前不知道的专业术语，例如胶原蛋白，烟酰胺，赤藓糖醇，生酮饮食，零碳水化合物替代品和乳清蛋白分离物。 。 。待会儿见。代餐真的有黑色技术吗？
Later, Lao Hei checked the information and found that the reason for losing weight was surprisingly simple. Because meal replacements are simply not enough! To
In general, our energy intake for a meal is about 600Kcal, and most of the meal replacement milkshakes on the market have an energy within 300Kcal per bottle. To
This is equivalent to eating two bowls of white rice normally, but now it is reduced to one bowl, which is strange if you are not thin. So eating meal replacements is equivalent to dieting in disguise. To
The advertisement advertises that drinking a bottle of meal replacement is equivalent to drinking 1 cup of milk, 1 steak, 30 spinach, and N multi-vitamins. What is it all about?
This is actually a small trick promoted by the business. Even if the meal replacement contains the same amount of nutrients as these foods, it is not equivalent to eating so many foods. To
It's like toilet paper and money are made of paper. Can I say that these two are the same thing? I'm afraid I will be beaten to death if I take toilet paper to check out. To
Even more outrageous is yet to come. These meal replacements all claim that they can provide 4 to 5 hours of fullness. In other words, you won't be hungry within 5 hours after drinking the meal replacement. To
Anyone with a bit of common sense knows that in the same amount of food, the digestion and absorption speed of solid food is definitely much slower than that of liquid food, so solid food provides people with a longer fullness than liquid food. To
A bottle of meal replacement is only a few hundred milliliters. With such a small bottle of drink, can you really feel full for 5 hours? To
Don’t tell Lao Hei that I’m rich in dietary fiber, and the GI value of sugar substitutes is low. I have personally experienced it.
I finished the meal replacement at 6 o’clock that afternoon, and by 9 o’clock in the evening, I was so hungry that the front of my chest was pressed against my back. In the end, the takeaway brother saved my life.
There are many people who feel the same way as Lao Hei. Many people in the comment section are saying that after eating the meal replacement, they don't feel full. To
Among them, regarding the question of why the meal replacement energy bar is not strong enough to feel full, the customer's comments made me even more stunned: maybe the meal replacement energy bar has not been opened yet, it is recommended to drink more water to enhance the feeling of fullness. To
The subtext is, drink a little more water, you will not be hungry if you are full. The scumbag really hammered. To
If you strictly follow the recipes provided by the merchant, you can say that you will be 100% thinner. But how many people can persist? To
As mentioned earlier, after I drank the meal replacement that day, I was like a hungry ghost in the evening. To
My fat was lost that day, and I had a meal of fried chicken that was high in fat and fat. To
What's even more funny is that some meal replacement energy bars that claim to be able to lose weight are so delicious that people can't stop at all. Originally, the official recommendation was to consume one piece at a time, but it was unexpected that some customers would eat a large packet at once. To
It is precisely because these consumers can't control their mouths that they give merchants a good excuse to dump the pot. To
"I clearly told you that you can only drink one bottle of meal replacement for a meal, and don't eat high-calorie foods. You must not listen. You can't blame me for losing weight!"
If consumers lose weight, it will be the result of meal replacements. If they can't lose weight, they will blame this consumer. To
The merchant's routine, as expected, is that the sow wears a bra, one set after another. To
The reason why meal replacements are sprayed with IQ tax, and the effect is the second, mainly because it is too expensive. To
The average price of meal replacement is basically over one hundred. On average, a bottle of meal replacement milkshake costs more than 20 yuan, and an ordinary meal replacement bar costs more than 10 yuan. This is almost the same as if we had a meal for 800. To
Many people think that meal replacement is something full of technology, so they are willing to pay. but it is not the truth.
For example, when Soylent, the originator of meal replacement, first did research and development, its formula was obtained from the "Nutrition Pyramid" in our middle school textbook. To
To put it simply, for example, if we need 1g protein a day, then 1g protein powder is added to the meal replacement. If 2g sugar is needed, then 2g sugar is added. The principle is actually that simple. To
The homework of these meal replacement products on the market is nothing more than how to control sugar intake while improving the taste of the product. To
No matter how delicious and healthy the meal replacement is in the promotion, there is no doubt that it can never be compared with real food. To
As mentioned earlier, if a bottle of meal replacement is placed on your left, 1 cup of milk, 1 steak, and 30 spinach are placed on your right, what kind of food would you like to eat? I believe the answer is self-evident.
In addition to being expensive and unpalatable, meal replacements may even have adverse effects on the body if consumed for a long time.
First of all, changes in eating habits within a short period of time may lead to a series of problems such as hypoglycemia, endocrine disorders, and skin deterioration. To
There have been news reports before that some women lost weight by using meal replacements. They failed to lose weight and fell ill instead.
Second, due to the reduced food intake, this stimulates the body's desire for food. If you return to a normal diet, your weight will rebound quickly. To
This is similar to saving money. Brain: "I consume a lot of fat this month. In the intestines, you have to increase horsepower to absorb nutrients and store them all." Body: "Good!"
When you lose weight by relying on meal replacements all the time and decide to return to a normal diet, your body absorbs nutrients frantically. The last time you return to the pre-liberation period, you fall into the vicious circle of weight loss, rebound and weight loss.
The third point is that although the nutritional components of meal replacements seem to be very sufficient, there are still many trace elements that cannot be supplemented by meal replacements alone. To
Therefore, many nutritionists will recommend this meal replacement to be consumed at most once a day. At the same time, meal replacements are best eaten with other foods. To
But the business doesn't care about you. They have launched a 3-day weight loss package, a one-week weight loss package, and even a one-month weight loss package. I hope you can only eat their products every day. In the long run, the harm to the body can be imagined.
Meal replacement is not an IQ tax, I think this is a point of discussion. To
If you are really busy at work and have no time to eat, it is understandable to eat a meal replacement. Because of the balanced nutrition, meal replacements can even be said to be the best substitutes for current meals.
For example, I usually eat on time at 6 o'clock every day for Lao Hei, but after drinking the meal replacement that day, it is obvious that the thumping left half an hour for dinner. If I were Dad Ma, I would make hundreds of millions more if I rounded up this half an hour.
Another group is the sisters who want to lose weight. To
Many people want to lose weight, but do not know how to control their diet. How much to eat and how to eat is an annoying thing for them. To
After the meal replacement milkshake was launched, it directly gave you a simple and rude way. You don't have to think about what food to buy or how to make it. Drinking one bottle per meal is enough.
Meal replacement may not be very effective, but it is really convenient for lazy people. To
For the above two types of people, meal replacements are not considered an IQ tax. To
However, for those sisters who are superstitious about the weight-loss effect of meal replacement and regard it as a standard, I can only say, you can have a snack.
In the early years, I worked as a technologist and a freelance investigative reporter. The reason why I wrote the [One Black] official account is to use the simplest language to tell everyone that there are real demons in this world, otherwise you cannot understand human nature.
