What is the difference between this and the other plans?This plan will result in the similar amounts of weight loss as our others. All Shake That Weight diet plans can result in ketosis/release of ketones and offer similar amounts of weight loss to this plan. The difference between this and our other plans is this is less about calorie counting, and more about limiting the total number of carbs you consume a day. It also has more limitations on which meal products you can have and things you can drink than the other plans.
Enjoy any 4 STW meal products (below 60g carbs in total)Maximum carb allowance 60g daily. All Shake That Weight products are suitable, but keep an eye on the amount of carbs you’re consuming. The easiest way to follow the diet is to just consume shakes as they are lowest in carbs. However, you could have one or more of the other higher carb products a day (e.g bars/noodles) – again, just keep track of the carbs. If just consuming shakes you must mix one shake or porridge with low carb/lactose free milk (eg. Unsweetened almond milk or soya milk) daily. This will ensure you meet the minimum 600 calorie intake. Our ready meals are also perfect on the ketogenic diet, as on average they contain lower than 10g of carbs, and are slightly higher in calories, having one a day would negate the need to mix one product with milk.

Frequently Asked Questions
Carbohydrates are normally broken down into glucose, which is then converted into energy and transported to the body’s muscles and organs. By lowering the carbohydrate intake to a minimum the body is forced to switch its metabolism and to find other sources of energy and so begins to use the stored fat. This results in burning the fat stores and also raising the levels of chemicals called ketones in the blood, which are then consequently excreted through the lungs, sweat and urine. This state is called ketosis; therefore all diets based on this principle are called ketogenic diets.
