Rapid Loss is a range of meal replacement shakes that are used in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet. The shakes are designed for those needing to lose significant amounts of weight, rather than just wanting to lose a few kilos before summer hits!
This is because the program restricts calorie intake by replacing either all three meals a day with shakes, or as snacks throughout the day. Rapid Loss products are designed to support consumers as they lose weight while the educational part of the program is implemented to help people manage their weight once off the program.
According to the Rapid Loss website, the program is a ‘bridging diet’ to assist you while you work towards achieving the ideal healthy diet “as outlined by Australian Health bodies and leading nutritionists”. Rapid Loss uses the products and educational tools in conjunction with an exercise plan so that consumers have the best chance of keeping the weight off long term. According to Rapid Loss:
“We use the filling Rapid Loss shakes to help you remain fuller whilst we teach you how to follow a healthy eating format that consists of nutritious, unprocessed foods. The shakes enable you to lose the weight fast, and the free education ensures you keep the weight off.”

How do Rapid Loss shakes work?
If you’ve seen any of the Rapid Loss commercials, you might remember a funny diagram of a stomach swelling with a mystical blue cloud, check it out here Rapid Loss TVC. Chances are you might be wondering what this secret ingredient is. According to Rapid Loss, it is “the combination of fibre, protein and vegetable gum which creates a gel-like feeling in your stomach, which will minimise the amount of food you can consume, therefore shrinking your stomach”. The shakes work by filling you up using as little calories as possible, so even though your stomach feels full, your caloric intake has been limited.
You can achieve this same effect by opting for meals that are higher in good fats like avocados and nuts alongside lean protein. Achieving a healthy balance during a weight loss program is key to helping you maintain results and manage your weight long term. For this reason, the shakes are best to use as snacks once or twice a day, alongside nutritious wholefood meals that include plenty of fresh vegetables and some fruit. If you are considering using Rapid Loss in place of all three meals, always check with your doctor first.
