At Free Soul we’re here to help you live the lifestyle that suits your individual needs and goals. So, whilst we regularly promote healthy habits that improve your mental and physical wellbeing on the inside, we’re also here to provide support for those wanting to make a more external change.
For those looking to make such a change, our new Dual Use Complete Meal Products – carefully formulated by one of the UK’s leading clinical nutritionists – could be exactly what you need to reach your physical goals in a healthy way and keep your results long term.
Weight & Fat Loss
First of all, let’s get one thing straight: when most people say they want to lose weight, what they actually mean is that they want to lose body fat. If you’ve ever been a dedicated scale worshipper, you’ll know that the number you see can vary drastically day to day, impacted by so many things – from what you’ve eaten and how hydrated you are to the levels of your hormones too. So, if you’re looking to make a change to your body composition (and not just seriously dehydrate yourself to see a number on the scale) what we’re really talking about here is fat loss!
Despite the media forever trying to convince us that a new diet or regime will be the “cure all” for fat loss, what this really comes down to is simply consuming less calories than your body uses. When you give your body less calories than it needs for energy, it uses the glycogen stored in your muscles for energy first, before turning to your fat stores (you guessed it, resulting in fat loss)!
So, simply eat as little calories as possible and the fat will fly off, right?
Not so fast! Remember, this is meant to healthy and sustainable, so trying to survive off lettuce leaves and air alone will neither give you enough energy to get through the day, nor be something you can maintain long-term. We recommend a slower approach – losing about 1lb of fat per week. And to do this, you’ll need to consume a deficit of around 500kcal per day.
Again, sounds simple right? In theory yes, whilst you’ve got plenty of time to pre-prepare all your healthy, carefully calculated meals… but then a family drama hits, or your boss throws a new project your way or the roof of your house starts leaking. Being quite so prepared isn’t always realistic, and it becomes a challenge to find nutritionally balanced meals that you can grab on the go – especially if you’re meat or dairy free.
Which is exactly where our new whey and vegan Dual Use complete meal blends come in! They’ve been carefully formulated to give you all the macro-nutrients, vitamins and minerals you need, whilst containing only 253 calories per serve paired with oat milk - the ideal weight loss shake. Swap breakfast or lunch for a quick shake and you’ll know exactly what you’re putting in your body, helping you reach your fat loss goals whilst cutting your meal prep time down to around 60 seconds! The gluten-free oats and high fibre content will provide slow-releasing energy, helping to keep you full until your next meal too. Meaning no rumbling stomach that has you spending the entire morning with your mind on the fridge and not on your inbox!
Once you’ve made the changes you want, now comes the hard part: maintaining it! Or maybe your schedule has suddenly become particularly busy and managing to eat three, nutrient-dense, calorie-controlled meals every day is becoming a struggle to say the least!
Sadly, there are many reasons why such a huge percentage of dieters fail to keep the results they worked so hard for. Life gets busy, motivation wanes, and quite honestly, maintaining your weight is not quite as exciting as when you were seeing progress in the mirror week after week.
Similarly to when trying to lose fat, swapping your breakfast or lunch for a satiating Dual Use shake made with oat milk can help keep your calorie intake in check, whilst still making sure you’re getting a full range of vitamins and minerals too. It’s all about taking the stress out of planning and prepping, to help you worry less about what’s on your plate (or in your shaker!) so you can focus on what’s really important. Unlike many meal replacements in the market, it’s not overly thick or sickly sweet either, so it won’t be a chore to chug down – just think of it as swapping that tiresome slice of toast for a creamy, chocolate milkshake!
Save Time, Money and Improve Your Diet
The Dual Use Blend can be used to replace a complete meal, it contains the perfect level of carbohydrates, essential fats, proteins, and minerals to fuel your body in the same way that a complete meal would. So when you’re short on time but don’t want to compromise on your diet, just whip up a Dual Use shake and feel full for hours! One shake costs a little over £1, so it’s kind on your pocket too. Say goodbye to overpriced, and undernutritious, sandwiches for lunch!
When you have a Dual Use Shake as a meal, you’re not just getting all the macronutrients you need, you’re also getting all the vitamins & minerals your body needs in a meal – so it’s the ultimate healthy, balanced, and nutritious meal on the go.
