I have been trying to lose weight for a couple of years now, and I have made some progress to that end, but not enough for my liking. I could definitely stand to keep losing weight, and to do so for awhile now, depending on how well I am able to lose weight in the near future. I am looking at an option right now that I have not considered before, and I am reading about the best meal replacement shakes to see what they might offer me in terms of losing weight.
I know that if I could replace at least one meal per day with a shake, that is of a low amount of calories, yet at the same time, still filling enough to keep me from snacking between that meal and the next time that I am supposed to eat, then that would probably do a lot of good towards getting me to lower the total amount of calories that I consume in a day.
One of the biggest problems that I have with dieting is that I tend to snack more than I should and that tends to ruin the whole program. I am pretty good at eating healthy meals when I want to, but then I tend to eat too much between meals, and sometimes I will eat more calories between meals than I actually do for either of the meals that I have on the ends of that period of time. It is not a good way to stick to a diet, but I just have a large appetite, and I need something that is very filling to help to keep me in check. I think that the shakes might be a good way to do that, but I have to read more to know for sure.
