Most people who are overweight know exactly why those excess pounds plague them. For some, it’s simply that they eat too much. And for others, it may be too much sugar, too many carbs or too much of whatever it is that they can’t resist.
Either way, “too much” is often a recurring theme, and the way many people try to correct the problem is by denying themselves the foods they think are causing the issues.
The problem with this solution is that is actually creates bigger problems.
Think about it: when you tell yourself that you are no longer allowed to eat cake, what happens? You want cake like never before. This is a psychological response, and you can usually fight off these kinds of thoughts with strong willpower.
But when you do something even more drastic, such as cut your daily caloric intake by half, you’re going to produce very real, very physical effects.
In a way, your body is going to go into shock. In reality, it’s suddenly going to have to operate on a lot less than it was previously.
What’s worse is that you’re probably going to make poor food choices in an effort to “have your cake and eat it, too”.
If you’re limiting yourself to something like 1,000 calories a day, you might pass on nutritious foods like vegetables and fruits so you can splurge on ice cream later.
What this ends up doing is sending your body into a tailspin. Everything is going to go out of whack, including your digestive system.
What that leads you to? You’re going to feel bad, tired and cranky, and you’re going to give up on your “diet” before it even really started.
Get the Nutrients You Need with a Protein and Probiotic Meal Replacement Shake
You know that cutting calories is crucial to successful weight loss. You also know that denying your body the nutrients it needs won’t lead to good results.
So what do you do?
One smart, healthy way to accomplish both goals is to look to meal replacement shakes for weight loss. These meal alternatives are lower in calories than a typical meal, but they offer a host of highly beneficial vitamins and nutrients.
Additionally, if you choose a meal that’s also loaded with probiotics, you’ll also get to experience a happy digestive system.
You can find plenty of meal replacement shake recipes online, and while there is nothing wrong with most of these shakes, they do tend to be time consuming.
First, you would have to go out and buy all the ingredients necessary to make them. And this could involve stopping at several stores.
And then you have to go through the hassle of mixing and blending those ingredients. This might not be so bad in the evenings, but what about when you’re in a rush in the morning or tight on time during your lunch break?
For those times when a homemade meal replacement shake just won’t work, turn to a ready-made product.
These shakes are just as healthy as the ones you make from scratch, but obviously they are a lot faster to put together.
Depending on the brand and variety you choose, these shakes may actually offer even more benefits than anything you could put together, owing to the fact that manufacturers have the ability to add concentrated ingredients that you don’t have access to.
While you can easily find meal replacement shakes at Wal-Mart and other grocery or health food stores, you’ll find much better products online.
There are lots of shakes on the market, and you’ve probably heard of some of them.
There’s no denying that some of these shakes are better than others, so when you’re ready to give one a try, take a look at some meal replacement shake reviews to help you judge which ones will work best with your lifestyle.
Cutting calories is a necessity when it comes to weight loss, but starving your body of vitamins and nutrients is not.
To get the best results when it comes time to shed pounds, start off by taking baby steps. For instance, try incorporating exercise into your daily routine, and swap out one meal per day with a TruVision protein and probiotic meal replacement shake.

Donna~ I love TruVision!! For so many reasons, but the life changing difference it has made in respect to my fibromyalgia is the best. I have been on meds for years and still was miserable. There were many days I literally spent the entire day either on the couch or in the bed covered in blankets and to the point of tears. After “ONE” week on TruVision I stopped those meds and feel better than I have in YEARS. It is nothing short of amazing how much better my life is since someone shared this awesome product with me!

Leesa~ I have fibromyalgia & despite the pain, I used to exercise a lot because I was determined to lose all the extra pounds I had put on due to fibro, age and everything else life throws at us. In January 2015, I literally walked away from any sort of exercise. I knew something was wrong. It felt like I had been wearing myself out and/or killing myself trying to lose weight and my weight was only increasing. Everyone said it was because I was gaining muscle & I was gaining muscle, but nothing else was changing and honestly I did not care about muscle at that point. I cared about the size of my clothes and how I looked and most of all about how I felt. Don’t get me wrong – I do believe in exercise and believe everyone should do something, in moderation, that works for them. Even if it is just walking, it is something. Anyway – getting back to January. I went to the Doctor because like I said I knew something was wrong. In my case, I had developed tons of inflammation and because I have fibromyalgia it was even worse. Long story short, I gave my body a rest to at least heal from the inflammation and get my fibro under control. In March, a friend introduced me to TruVision. I took a week sample of it and did not realize until AFTER I STOPPED TAKING IT that it made me feel so much better. I got lucky because TruVision had a “March Madness Sale” and I bought a huge supply of it. I started taking it regularly and then one day I realized I had gone down 2 sizes in my pants. Today I’m down from a 12 to a 7. NOW, that I know what it does and how it works and how I feel I take it consistently and see results. With that being said, I decided to become an associate mostly so I could help others like me, and of course buy what I need whenever I needed it. However, I know there are people just like me out there, and if I can help them feel better, get healthy and lose weight then that is an added plus!

Jennifer~ I was diagnosed 5 years ago with Fibro… We tried all the “fibro” medicine and they either made me a psychopath or packed on the pounds..neither of which did anything to help matters. My doctor finally decided that just treating the symptoms was the best plan. So muscle relaxers and narcotic pain medicine it was. I started taking Truvision in March and have had decreased pain, the swelling in my hands and feet are gone and I have had no days that have put me out of commission. Best I rarely have pain that is not tolerable so the medicine for pain is barely used anymore. Truvision honestly changed my life!
Tashua~ TV has been amazing for my Fibromyalgia. Before I began my routien was wake up get my coffee and 2 Aleve just to move. I no longer have to take meds to help with my fibromyalgia pain. I also have degenerative disk and arthritis in my spine. I am able to get moving and not hurt like I used to. When it rains or is cold I couldn’t do anything because of how stiff I was now rain and cold are not a problem for me. I would also wake up with headaches and go to bed with headaches now only every once in a great while I will get a headache.
Kim~ I have only had one Flare up in 7 months since I have been taking it. It has truly changed my life.
Tesa~ I take 3 to 4 trufix for my autoimmune diseases. I have several including fibro. I take one weight and energy a day just for fatigue.

Melissa~ I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 3 years ago. I had been to doc after doc, prescribed med after med, cymbalta, savella, muscle relaxers, non narcotic pain meds, neurontin, you name it I tried it, nothing worked, seemed to only make things worse for me. I decided to go and get a body scan, she prescribed me some supplements but no change, I was losing hope, every day was a struggle, I was very close to trying pain management but did not want to go that route, I know what it can do to you. We have had my niece since birth because both parents were addicts, happy to say we were able to adopt her at 18 months and she is now 3, I did call to see about making an appointment but i hung up, I just couldn’t see myself living on pain meds for the rest of my life. My next option, was getting tested for lupus, 3 weeks before my appointment I was introduced to the combo. Within 3 days I knew this was my miracle!!! I could get out of bed without struggle, I could think clearly, I had energy, pain was gone. I could smile & mean it, it is totally amazing how sick you can be just by your body being out of balance. I have always had a feeling that it had to do something with gut health & I totally understand it now, an unhealthy gut can cause so many diseases, my stomach has never felt better. I have been on the combo for 4 months now, I’m off of 7 (all) meds for fibromyalgia, down 38 lbs and went from a 16 to an 11. I’m just so very thankful to have my life back, it still amazes me how far I have come in only 4 months! If you are losing hope, I defenitly recommend that you give this a shot. I’m sure you have tried everything else right?? I wasn’t in it for the weightloss but very happy with my results. I have also added the MSM & I love this product! Along with the essential oils!! Good stuff 😉
Heidi~ Be faithful to it and take it regularly. I have a muscle disorder that I have severe muscle pain and when I am faithful taking it…. I do not have one single flair up.

Karen~ Commit to wellness. I have fibro also and living with the pain has been a real pain. Tru will help you! Only if you commit and allow the benefits of this amazing product to override the hell we go thru with fibro. If we can take those aweful pills with the horrible side effects on a daily basis just to ward off the symptoms, we can certainly take our Tru and combat fibro like the warriors that we are! Good luck to you!
Mary~ I take the combo along with msm, ubiquinol, and the multivitamin. I haven’t felt this good in forever. I have fibro and RA. The combo along with the vitamins had changed my life. Be sure to take ubiquinol in the morning. I noticed a huge difference when I switched from night to morning.
Janessa~ I have Lupus, and I love this product. It not only reduces pain, but it adds extra vitamins and minerals that your body is deficient of. Lupus still baffles scientist, but it can be caused for multiple reasons. My doctor allowed me to take Tru during pregnancy because of the benefits. Traditional Lupus meds are a nightmare, and the steroids are even worse. Not including, the blood clotting factors that I experienced before starting tru. Now, I have a healthy baby, and I am off all medications. I am down to 135 lbs when I was 187 before pregnancy. I highly recommend this product to anyone with an auto immune disorder.
Michelle~ I have Lupus amd RA! Gave me lots of energy.
Jessy~ I have Lupus along with 5 other Autoimmune Diseases. I feel amazing and it has worked wonders on my body!!!!
Jessie~ Lupus Update on my/cousin/customer/now Associate taking TruV combo… She has lost 32 lbs, feels better, & no lupus lesions since she’s been on it….her Dr. is very pleased with her labs!
Rosetta~ I am on TruV and it is the best thing I have taken in 34 yrs withLupus…My lab work is better… I FEEL so much better..it has changed my life for the better….I know that is a lot of Better..but you better believe its all Tru…big hugs…
Nicole~ I wanted to take a minute and share my full testimony with you guys. I have always LOVED food! I am Italian! So my entire life, even as a young child I have always been overweight. When I finished nursing school, I was at my highest weight of 340 lbs. I felt like someone had literally hooked me up to a helium machine and blew me up as big as possible without bursting. I was so withdrawn, and I never wanted to go anywhere. So, I had a couple of friends that had recently had the gastric bypass… the original one (this was in 02), and had done fantastic with it, so I decided to as well. Well, my was not as fantastic from the get go! I was discharged on day 3, came home. The morning of day 4 I woke up and my mom was taking my son to school. In less than 10 min, the little grenade like tube that was connected to me leaked out over 3 liters of bile from my body. My dad rushed me back to the hospital over an hour drive. I remained in the hospital over a week for them to fix everything. My life has never been the same. I have since suffered my anemia, constant vomiting (could barely ever eat out), my teeth were so horrible from all the vomiting, and most recently with Lupus that my physician felt was related to not having enough nutrients. In 2009, I had to have my surgery reversed. I had gotten to the point to where I could barely drink 30cc of water a day. I was a size 4 (which I loved, but hated the way I felt), I was lifeless and had NO energy at all! My coworkers would comment everyday that I needed to go to the doctor. I finally did.. that is when he reversed it, and I was on feedings via a line in my chest for 6 months. The thing is with being overweight it is a hard battle to face and overcome. I have literally been on every single diet out there, and promoted some. For the first time, I can say with integrity that Truvision Health is a LIFE-CHANGER!!! I have never felt this good before in my life! I feel like I am able to finally live my life for the first time ever! You know those little things you do with your kids (pumpkin patch, Sea World, small out of town trips) I never wanted to do them.. I was too embarrassed and too tired! Everyday I wake up refreshed and ready to face the day with an awesome energy.. Not this jittery kind. I started the products on 9/13 I am now down 35 lbs, and 4 pant sizes and countless inches! I am walking 5-10 miles a day, plus chasing after my 2 littles, and keeping up with the oldest. It is the easiest thing I have ever done! No diet!!!! Just 2 pills 30 min prior to breakfast and lunch and it has changed my cravings… Sodas do not taste good any longer, and I do not like greasy fast food, I might eat sweets every couple of weeks because that is when I want them. I do not deprive myself from eating things… I eat what I want just smaller amounts, and I am craving healthier meals
Rose ~ I am 6 months into my TruVision journey. Prior to TruVision, I was not only gravely obese but I also suffered from fibromyalgia with horrible fatigue and pain. I had no quality of life, spending most of my days in my recliner or bed. If I did do anything I then later suffered. I had tried all kinds of diets and even looked into weight loss surgery. I was ready to just give up. I had become severely depressed too. Then I was introduced to TruVision. The first day I noticed a difference in my energy. Then my mood began improving and I could smile again. Within the first week I lost 7# and my pain was improving. In 6 months I have lost 50#, but probably my best result is that I NOW HAVE MY LIFE BACK. I get up in the morning ready to start the day. I am happy most of the time now and have the energy to make it through the day with lots of activities. My pain is improved enough that I have been able to reduce the amount of pain medicine I have to take to make it through the day. TruVision has given me the ability to lose weight by decreasing my appetite and controlling my cravings. I still have a long way to go to get to a healthy weight, but I know with TruVision, I will reach my goals!!! I thank God for bringing TruVision into my life!
