How does it work?
Promax Diet is formulated to promote the loss of fat while preserving muscle tissue. It contains 40 grams of high-quality whey protein (roughly the same amount of protein found in a large chicken breast). Promax Diet also contains just 12 grams of carbohydrate in each shake. This makes Promax Diet suitable for anyone following one of the popular low-carbohydrate diets, such as the Atkins Diet.

Most popular meal replacements designed for weight loss are too high in carbohydrate and too low in protein to be effective. They're very cheap to make, and usually consist of little more than milk, table sugar and flavorings - mixed with a little fiber and xanthan gum to thicken the drink and help you feel fuller for longer. Promax Diet also contains the following blend of nutrients to accelerate the loss of body fat.

Xylitol
With the recent research showing the effectiveness of low-carbohydrate diets for boosting fat loss, it seems that almost everyone is worried about every gram of carbohydrate in their diet. However, research shows that a sugar alcohol known as Xylitol (pronounced zie-lit-ol) can actually help you to lose fat without the need to deprive yourself of carbohydrate totally. A recent study of healthy men examined their metabolic response to Xylitol. While glucose (a type of sugar) caused an increase in both blood sugar and insulin levels, Xylitol did not have such a pronounced effect [4]. Xylitol has also been shown to reduce your appetite, by keeping you feeling fuller for longer [5].

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid. Found in many dairy products and in beef, its biological activity has been studied intensively since it was discovered more than a decade ago. According to Dr. Michael Pariza, a CLA expert based at the University of Wisconsin, "every fat cell in the body wants to get big. What the CLA does is force that fat cell to stay little by affecting a number of enzymes that are ordinarily responsible for filling it with lipids." In other words, CLA diverts the calories you eat away from fat and into muscle tissue. For instance, scientists from Sweden took a group of 60 overweight subjects, and gave them different doses of CLA for 12 weeks [1]. The results show that CLA had a significant effect on fat loss. More interesting still, CLA users also gained muscle, despite the fact they followed only a very "light" training programme.

In a carefully controlled study conducted at the University of Wisconsin Beers-Murphy Clinical Nutrition Center, study subjects who received 6 grams of CLA lost a significant amount of body fat during a 12 week period on a very low calorie diet. The group taking CLA had a significant decrease in adverse effects typically associated with low calorie diets compared with those in the control group. "Dieting is challenging for a lot of people, especially those who have unrealistic expectations about how long it will take to lose weight. Additionally, low calorie diets, themselves, can negatively affect people both psychologically and physically," said study author Katinka Abbenbroek. "This study indicates that CLA helps people address some of those issues and feel better while they lose weight."

Vitamin B5
Vitamin B5, also called pantothenic acid, is one of eight water-soluble B vitamins. All B vitamins help the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose (sugar), which is "burned" to produce energy. In addition to playing a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy, Vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands. Sometimes referred to as the "anti-stress" vitamin, it's believed to strengthen the immune system and improve your body's ability to withstand stressful conditions.

Caffeine (from Guarana)
Caffeine and the closely related alkaloids theobromine and theophylline are the primary active constituents in guaraná. Caffeine's effects are well known and include stimulating the central nervous system, increasing metabolic rate, and having a mild diuretic effect. Because of its high caffeine content, Guaraná is a powerful fat-burning ingredient. Clinical trials show that caffeine will boost the fat burning effects of exercise by up to 30% [7]. More interesting still, research shows that caffeine will improve performance during short term, high intensity exercise, such as weight training [8]. Scientists from the University of Queensland have also found that people using caffeine burn twice as many fat calories in the hour after finishing exercise [9].

Green tea extract (standardised to 95% polyphenols)
Research shows that green tea extract increases the amount of fat calories you burn each day, making weight loss faster and easier. A recent trial at the University of Geneva shows that green tea extract increases the number of fat calories your body burns each day by approximately 35% [2]. Green tea extract works by raising the amount of heat your body produces. Scientists call the process thermogenesis. In simple terms, rather than storing calories as fat, you burn them as heat.
How do I use it?
Replace two meals a day with two Promax Diet shakes.
What results can I expect?
When Promax Diet is used as recommended for 3-4 weeks in combination with exercise and a healthy diet, you can expect to lose 8-12 pounds in weight.
