Protein Shake For Weight Loss


The Optifast® milkshake per 40gram serve (1 sachet), contains 15grams of carbohydrate and 635kj's (151 calories), so is ideal for weight control. I use this before exercise as the workout will reduce the carbohydrate naturally without fast-acting insulin.

Optifast® VLCD is recommended for the dietary management of obesity. It retails in an 840gr box, containing 21 x 40gr satchets, and is available at chemists. Optifast® is manufactured by Nestle Nutrition.

For refreshment, I drink 6-8 cups of green tea daily and cooled boiled water as per my Juicing Notes.


I adapted the above protein shake for times when more energy is needed.


1 Optifast® sachet

2 Tablespoons Soy Protein Isolate (Health Food store)

750ml cold water

1 cup soy milk

Drop of vanilla


Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix well.

Serves 2


Tip: Use chilled water for a great drink/meal in warmer weather
