These delicious shakes are scientifically formulated to assist you in achieving your weight loss goals. They're everything you would expect from the best meal replacement shake, but with a very important twist. Rapid Loss contains ingredients that fill you up, leaving less room available for food. Use these shakes to replace your regular meals or as a filling snack between meals.
What is Rapid Loss?
Rapid Loss consists of a range of nutritious products that assist in reducing weight rapidly. Leading the range is the Meal Replacement Shakes, which have been formulated so that you can use them to replace meals or replace snacks. So if you want to drop the weight as fast as possible you can replace meals. However, if you want to eat your 3 major meals per day you can have the shakes as a snack between meals and still lose weight fast. The shakes are calorie controlled, containing 25% of your daily RDI of vitamins and minerals. They are also high in fibre and this combined with the level of protein help to create a feeling of fullness that can help satisfy your hunger cravings in-between meals.
Formulated and designed by leading Exercise Physiologist Ray Kelly, the shakes are supported by his highly successful weight loss program that consists of a meal plan and exercise program. The meal plan provides you with nutritious meals and snacks, that along with the Rapid Loss shakes will see you losing an average of 2-3kg per week!
How it works?
The Rapid Loss Program is based on the concept of burning more calories (through exercise, activity and metabolism) than you consume (in food and fluid intake). It is not a restrictive diet, rather a 'bridging diet' to take you from where you are now (large portions and craving sugars, salts and fats) to the ideal healthy diet (as outlined by Australian Health bodies and leading nutritionists). We use the filling Rapid Loss shakes to help you remain fuller whilst we teach you to how 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. And you won't believe how simple the program is to follow!
Why it works?
Unlike many other weight loss shakes Rapid Loss has been designed to target those who would like to replace meals with a shake or those who would like to replace snacks with a shake. By adding skim milk your shake becomes a meal replacement. Alternatively, add water and your shake becomes a low calorie snack. No matter whether you decide to replace meals or snacks, Ray Kelly provides you with a specific meal plan which will show you exactly what needs to be done to lose weight rapidly and keep it off.
The Meal Replacement Shakes come in several different flavours: Chocolate, Latte, Banana, Strawberry, Mango and Vanilla.
Currently the Lactose Free Meal Replacement shake only comes in Chocolate.
Are the Rapid Loss shakes gluten free?
Yes, Rapid Loss is Gluten Free. However, the Rapid Loss snack bars are made on equipment that manufactures products containing nuts, gluten, sulphites and sesame seeds.
Is Rapid Loss suitable for those who are lactose intolerant?
Rapid Loss comes in a lactose free version for those who are lactose intolerant. Currently the lactose free version of Rapid Loss only comes in Chocolate.
Is Rapid Loss Low GI?
Yes Rapid Loss is low GI (glycaemic index).
Why is a low GI encouraged for weight loss and diabetes?
Foods that have a low GI help to keep sugar levels steady. This is very important for those that are diabetic, have insulin resistance, and most people with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. People with these conditions have trouble either producing enough insulin or the insulin they do produce is not being utilised well. Insulin is the hormone that removes sugar from the bloodstream so by having the sugars released slowly it allows the body to be more efficient.
Having a low GI also helps control cravings, so that's an added reason to follow this format for losing weight!
Can children use Rapid Loss?
With children under the age of 16 it is best to avoid any supplements and instead work in with a dietician to provide a suitable and sustainable weight loss program. For those over 16, the Rapid Loss meal plan can be followed so long as they have passed their pubertal growth period. The free Rapid Loss education program aims to inform the user about healthier lifestyle options regarding both food and exercise.
How important is it to use multivitamins and mineral supplements during the Program?
The Rapid Loss shakes provide a significant portion of your recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals. However, to make sure you're getting everything you need it may be useful to use Multivitamins.
Will the products interfere with any medications that I'm currently using?
For most people the products are unlikely to interfere with any medication. However, it is important that you speak to your healthcare practitioner if you have any health conditions, prior to commencing the Rapid Loss Program. People with diabetes and hypertension may require frequent monitoring by their doctor whilst losing weight, as medications may need to be reduced.
Does Rapid Loss comply with the Food Authority regulation?
Yes, Rapid Loss complies with the Food Authority regulations.
Is Rapid Loss sustainable long term?
It is often said that shake diets are not sustainable and to be honest Ray initially had the same opinion and this is how Rapid Loss came about. He went through the research and designed this scientifically based format that ensures long-term weight loss success.
Research shows that for a meal replacement shake program to be successful long term it not only must taste good and be affordable, but there must also be education and support. Rapid Loss provides education through the free booklet and 4-month email education course. This contains all the tips and tricks Ray Kelly has accumulated in his 22 years in weight loss. We also provide free support in the form of email, phone and online forum.
In addition, Rapid Loss is different from other products in that you have the option to have the shakes as a meal replacement or as a snack. By having the shake as a snack you still get to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner so you're still getting to eat real food.
The other important factor is that we teach you how to go from having the 2 shakes per day, to simply eating fresh foods. We do this by progressing you through a simple 4-stage Program.
What you need to remember though is that no weight loss program will be sustainable if your intention is to go back to your old habits. Its quite simple, if you eat like a 150kg person, your will eventually be 150kg!
How many calories do the Rapid Loss Shakes contain?
If you mix the Rapid Loss shake with 200ml water then it will roughly equate to 152 calories per serving. (It may vary slightly by a couple of calories depending on the flavour)
If you have the Rapid Loss shake as a meal replacement and mix it with 200ml skim milk then it will equate to 222 calories per serving
Can I eat Fruit while using Rapid Loss?
If you're having the shakes as a snack between your meals then you don't need to be having fruit.
You only add the fruit (An apple, banana or orange) if you are having the shakes as a meal replacement. Fruit is considered a snack and if you're having the shakes as a snack then you will just be adding calories if you have fruit as well. Just remember, although fruit is healthy you can still eat too much of it and this will limit your weight loss results.
If you are replacing meals then you can have (either) an apple, banana or orange as your snack between your meals. The main reason these fruits are chosen is because they are high in fibre, and comes in a good portion size already. This is important, as we want you to feel full without the need to overeat.
