As the makers of the yummiest and nutritionally bomb-ass meal shakes around, we get lots of questions about our meal shakes here at Jimmy Joy HQ.
So we thought it was time to put a FAQ page online to make things simpler and less confusing for you. Because, you know, that’s what we live to do—make your life easier.
Why have a meal shake instead of a real meal?
These are the top reasons our happy customers (people like you) pick up a shaker and shake their way to a full stomach.
Time and convenience. By far, this is the biggest reason most people click “Order” and keep coming back for more. Meal shakes are just a really quick and easy way to eat a reasonably healthy meal, even if you’re short on time on effort.
On-the-go lifestyle. You have 99 problems and you don’t want food to be one. Like we said: scoop, shake, drink. Repeat as needed. It doesn’t get easier than that.
Low appetite. Difficulty meeting minimum daily calorie requirements
Physical inability to chew or digest solid food. You broke your jaw, lost all your teeth, got your jaw wired shut? Liquid food, or at least soft food that doesn’t require ensures you don’t starve while your teeth or jaw are out of order. This is typically not a permanent situation, so our meal shakes are a great stopgap solution.
What exactly is a meal substiute or meal replacement shake? Or what is it NOT?
- It is a NOT a replacement for an entire diet—a meal shake is designed to replace just one meal
- It is NOT just a protein shake—our meal shakes contain all the essential nutrients you need to keep your engine running throughout the day
- It is NOT just an oatmeal shake—there’s more to our shakes then just oatmeal! Have you seen all our awesome flavors?
- It is NOT a green smoothie—but you can always add fresh greens to our shakes to give them that green boost. Best try Plenny Neutral for that!
Do meal shakes help you lose weight?
Plenny Shake ensures that you get your macronutrients—basically the major components of every diet, which you need to live—in the right proportions, which is essential to weight loss. That’s because we’ve designed our meal replacement shakes with carbs, fat, proteins, and fiber all in the right balance. The protein and fiber in our shakes keep you fuller for a longer time than carbs do, ensuring that you don’t snack or binge on foods that are bad for you and make you gain weight. And that’s just for starters.
Do you have any advice for me before I start taking meal substitute shakes?
- DO make sure your meal shake has all the calories and nutrients you need for the day.
- DO Store a serving of Plenny Shake in a shaker and keep it in handy in your bag. When it’s time to eat, just add water, shake, and go. Complete nutrition in a full 400kcal meal, anytime, anywhere.
- DO Use a meal shake to replace one meal, not all of your meals.
- DO be clear about your reasons for considering a meal substitute.
- DON’T begin a full liquid diet without consulting your doctor
- DON’T confuse meal replacement shakes with protein shakes—the nutrient content is totally different!
- DO listen to your body and give it several days to adjust to anything new you introduce into your diet. And yes, that includes meal substitute shakes.
