How Shake It Works


Switching on Fat Burning

Your body has three main sources of energy. It can burn fat, glucose (carbohydrate), or protein. When we burn fat, we produce substances called ketones. These are produced normally, and when we measure these ketones in our urine, we know we are burning fat efficiently.

How does the Shake it program work?

there is evidence that modestly increasing the protein in a diet while controlling carbohydrate fat and total energy intake may improve body composition, facilitate fat loss and improve body weight maintenance after weight loss.


With the Metagenics Medical weight loss program there are six key principles:


1. Replacing one meal per day with a high protein low carbohydrate meal replacelment shake or bar.

2. Consume two meals per day - following portion control size

3. Consume two snacks per day each with 10g of protein.

4. Include Meta oil - Healthy oils need to be part of your nutrition plan.

5. Excerise 40 minutes per day - "Healthy heart, Healthy mind = Healthy Body! "

6. Measure your ketones with ketostix twice daily - to make sure your in fat burning mode!

Ketostix are used to test for ketones in the urine ( a by-product of fat metabolism) to ensure weightloss is occuring at a safe sustainable level.

High levels of dietary carbohydrates, also known as high glycaemic load foods (e.g. sugars and starchy foods such as bread, rice, pasta and potatoes), work with the hormone insulin to 'switch off' fat burning and increase fat gain.

It becomes virtually impossible to lose fat if you have raised insulin levels.

When your body’s blood sugar and insulin levels are low enough you will switch to a higher level of fat burning. This is the secret to Shake It. To burn fat you need to restrict high glycaemic load foods to a level where your body will produce less of the hormone insulin thereby increase the rate of fat burning. Eating less food is not the answer; you need to specifically reduce the high glycaemic index, carbohydrate-rich foods in order to 'switch on' fat burning.

Proper portion controlled foods combined with Shake it products from Metagenics I can help you get on your way to a healthier lifestyle.

REASONS WHY YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT - Have you tried and tried but can never shift that weight?


1. The most common cause of ineffective weight loss can often be found in your macronutritent intake. Keeping a food diary for three to seven days that you can bring to the clinic to be viewed to determine if your carbohydrate, protein or fat intake is too high or low.

2. Lifestyle factors may impede fat loss; Lack of movement. Excerise helps with increasing lean body mas and reducing fat mass.It also has benefits on the nervous system; alleviating depressive symptoms and improving resistance to stress. Exercise reduces chronic disease by enhancing insulin sensitvity and glycaemic control reducing blood pressure and inflammation.

3. The Impact of Stress on fat loss; Stress has been implicated as a causative factor of obesity and research has suggests that highly stressed individuals often experience difficulty losing weight.

4. Reduced metabolic rate; may be due to low thyroid function, low muscle mass.
