The GoFigure range, including the GoFigure shakes, contains the patented revolutionary and award-winning ingredient SlimBiome which has been scientifically proven in multiple studies to support the feeling of fullness, reducing food cravings for sweet and savoury foods and assist with weight loss.
GoFigure has many incredible benefits to your health and wellbeing beyond weight loss and weight management. It works on enhancing the microbiome in providing improved gut health due to the inclusion of prebiotic fibre.
Ideally, you want to be using a shaker (but you can use a blender or NutriBullet) to get the best mixability. Start by adding 250ml of water to your chosen shaker, then add a serving of GoFigure Meal Replacement powder (45g). Shake vigorously for 15 seconds and drink immediately. It can be followed up with an extra glass of water or herbal tea. If you want to dilute the shake simply add up to 350ml of water instead of 250ml.
You should drink your shake for breakfast and lunch alongside a glass of water or herbal tea. They should leave you feeling full and satiated and will give you all the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. If you are going out to a restaurant for lunch, you can always have the shake for dinner instead.
The idea is to have a bar at around 11am and 3pm – just about the time when you start to feel a bit hungry and might need an energy top-up. Drink a glass of water or herbal tea with your snack bar.
SlimBiome is included in all of our products. It is an award-winning scientifically formulated and patented natural weight management product that supports weight loss as part of a calorie controlled diet and exercise program. It was developed by professors from Liverpool, Reading and Sheffield Universities.
One of the key ingredients in SlimBiome is glucomannan, a water-soluble dietary fibre. It takes up space in the stomach and promotes the feeling of fullness (satiety), reducing food intake at a subsequent meal. It also delays the emptying of the stomach, contributing to increased satiety or feeling of fullness.
The prebiotic fibres in SlimBiome feed the friendly bacteria in the intestine, contributing to more efficient digestion, whilst the mineral chromium enhances the action of insulin, promoting the catabolism (breakdown) of carbohydrates (sugars) and fat in the body.
Losing weight fast is not considered healthy and it is not something we recommend. By simply combining two GoFigure shakes and two snack bars with a healthy balanced meal daily will help ensure you are getting a good intake of additional fresh food nutrients every day. Which in turn will help you lose weight and stay healthy.
Being vegetarian doesn't mean low-calorie. Vegetarian cookies, cakes, pasta, white rice, butter and pizza usually contain large numbers of calories and could undermine your GoFigure results. The key is in the name – VEGetarian. Salads are excellent meal options, as long as you limit the amount of high-calorie dressings – including bread croutons, creamy dressing, cheese, dried fruit and nuts.
Skip the refined sugar and grain options that may fit the definition of vegetarian, but add excess calories and limited nutrients. Stay away from fried vegetarian foods, including French fries and tempura vegetables.
Poached eggs or egg whites with veggies, scrambled tofu with salsa or a large salad with chickpeas, vegetable soup with kidney beans or black beans with brown rice are all high-fibre diners. The beans add fibre as well as protein, both of which help make you feel more satisfied and not deprived. Try a stir-fry tempeh or tofu with minimal oil and serve with a mound of roasted vegetables, or steam the veggies and dash of lemon juice. A small serving of whole grains, such as quinoa or wild rice, or a starchy vegetable add to the meal. Watch portion sizes!
Remember that a small handful of nuts or two tablespoons of hummus fit into a GoFigure vegetarian weight loss plan, but if they turn into a big serving you are going to struggle to lose weight. Opt for a snack of our fabulous natural flapjacks with SlimBiome – hunger free dieting.
Our products are gluten-free although they are made in a factory which handles gluten. Our shakes specifically contain milk-derived ingredients and also contain soya protein.
Some flapjack flavours contain nuts and peanuts, and are made in a factory that contains nuts and peanuts.
