We’ve discussed the delicious taste of our hero product, and revealed its benefi cial nutrients and convenience, but how can Formula 1 shakes* actually help you reach your goals?

1 shake a day

If your goal is to maintain a healthy weight, you’re recommended to substitute one daily meal of an energy-restricted diet with a shake such as Formula 1, as this has been shown to help in maintaining a healthy weight after weight loss**.

2 shakes a day

Looking to lose or control your weight? Clinical studies show that substituting 2 daily meals of an energy-restricted diet with a shake such as Formula 1 shakes contributes to weight loss, along with moderate exercise**.

Add an extra shake each day

Ideal for those looking for assistance to tone up their physique in a kilojoule-controlled way. Formula 1 shakes provide complex carbohydrates to help refuel energy stores after exercise, and 18g high-quality protein (from soy and dairy). Protein can help build and maintain lean muscle. More lean muscle leads to a faster metabolism too, which means you’ll burn more kilojoules even while you sleep!
