The new FAST shakes are nutritionally balanced ‘Meal Replacement’ Shakes. The FAST Shakes are different to the previous Bodytrim shakes which were recommended as snack options. The FAST Shakes can be used in place of a meal as a convenient, nutritiously balanced meal option. As these shakes are meal replacements they do need to contain a higher amount of energy/Calories so as to provide the body with some sustenance. Some of this energy/Calories does come from sugars however, the majority of sugars in the new FAST shakes is naturally occurring lactose (milk sugar) which is coming from the milk ingredients used in these shakes rather than added sugars.
Many foods including milk and fruits will contain naturally occurring sugars, but we wouldn’t want you to cut these foods from your diet as they are also a source of many other beneficial nutrients- vitamins, minerals, fibre etc. We would rather focus on cutting down the added sugars in your diet.
