Clinical Importance of Using Meal Replacements with Anti-Obesity Medications


Replacing grocery foods with balanced and nutritional meal replacements is a useful clinical tool to support calorie restriction and provide optimal levels of macro and micro nutrients for patients with obesity on a clinically-supervised weight management program.

Meal replacements are a useful strategy to eliminate problematic food choices or complex meal planning while trying to attain a daily caloric deficit for patients with obesity. In addition, the incorporation of added protein in meal replacements aids in satiety and supports lean body mass and metabolic rate during calorie restriction.

Further, the American Dietetic Association supports the inclusion of meal replacements in their position statement on weight management.
