"When I first started using this product I really struggled with the consistency and flavour. I bought Chocolate. The flavour is pretty nondescript, it's just really sweet. If mixed as advised on the tub it's also WAY too thick – I couldn't drink it! I use just under 1.5 scoops instead of the recommended two and mix with about 350-400ml of water.
"One of the best shakes I've had! The high fibre content makes sure that you are full for longer, and can easily act as a meal replacement. Also, the added benefit of extra vitamins is ideal."
"This was my 2nd order of this product, ordered 2X2 kg its an excellent product and as for the service- I cannot fault it."
"Ordered the vanilla, great value for £30 per 2kg, shake is thick and keeps me full for 4 hours at least, very versatile. I put coffee in mine for breakfast to make a kind of latte milkshake. Great customer service and fast delivery"
"Having tried several shakes for weight loss/maintenance, the usn diet fuel is by far the more superior in flavour, texture, consistency & is also high in fibre so keeps you regular! It's similar to a slushy angel delight, I've tried all the flavours with the banana caramel & strawberry being my favourites... Lost 2 stone with this product & am just using it to maintain now. The prices on this website are really competitive & delivery always prompt... Try it for yourself, you won't be disappointed!"
Hi Cammilla We're a bit behind on Q & A after the long weekend. I think you've had a response. Please let us know if there is anything further.
For weight loss purposes, this product is meant to "replace" one or two meals per day. However, as long as you take it in place of a meal or a snack that is higher in calories and/or carbs and/or lower in protein, you should get fat-loss results.
Yes, indeed! Berries (in particular) will add important antioxidants, vitamin C and some extra fibre.
If one scoop is all you require then yes. Water is all down to Preference.
If you are using it to replace a meal or two per day, this will help you lose weight because you will be getting fewer calories, more protein and fat-burning ingredients. If you just add it to your diet, you may actually gain weight from the additional calories. All supplements work better in conjunction with a well rounded exercise plan and diet but cutting your calories and increasing your protein intake is the most important thing for fat and weight loss.
It is advisable that you do so, yes - to maintain consistency. You may wish to take just one serving on non-training days, however.
The nutritional information provided is applicable to the supplement only, excluding milk added.
Hello Kris, No problem at all. Maltodextrin can cause problems for some individuals with coeliac disease. I would therefore, advocate avoidance. For more clarification on this matter, you may wish to contact USN directly. Their email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may wish to try Cellucor Cor-Performance Whey (available in two sizes) which is definitely gluten-free. I hope you find this information useful.
It doesn't say on the tub, so we'd assume 11 given that that s the amount of carbs given after the dietary fibre is taken away. If you are looking to go sub 8% percent then potentially sweeteners could limit your fat loss but more often than not you will lose weight if your diet and training programme are good.
We would recommened you take one serving 1hr prior to traiing and one serving post-workout.
If this stack can be consumed 60-90 minutes prior to workout then take first thing. If not then simply take post-workout.
Good Morning, As you will be aware, I have since responded to this query via the personal email address provided.
Take the Xedra Cut 1/2 hour before breakfast and lunch. The Diet Fuel is designed to replace a meal or two, so have it for one or two of breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Musclemag is chock full of diet plans so pick up a copy.
It depends on your genetics but a healthy weight loss of around 2lb per week is a good target, we'd recommend try eating 5-7 small meals a day to increase metabolism and keep the fire burning (fat metabolism) Try and have around 2 shakes a day, if you can't fit it more food then replace that meal with a shake. Weight loss is mainly down to diet.
Diet fuel is more of a meal replacement type product which offers slightly higher carbs than Diet whey. Simply decide which is best suited for your diet and for which time you are looking to use the product.
Hi, I have checked the nutritional information; it does not state 'suitable for vegetarians' on the label. This might be because 'may contain traces of crustaceans' is included as part of the allergen information. Usually, if a product is not certified as being suitable for vegetarians, it may contain trace (animal-derived) ingredients, or be produced in an environment which also manufactures products unsuitable for vegetarians, e.g. those which contain gelatine.
Indeed. Why don't you try a poached (or grilled) chicken breast with a small portion of brown rice and steamed vegetables? Grilled salmon fillet (or steak) with sweet potato wedges and salad is another option; Chilli Con Carne made with Quorn Mince or lean minced beef and lots of added vegetables (chopped peppers, carrots and courgettes work well), served with brown rice; you could try a similar recipe to make a Bolognese (with wholewheat spaghetti or gluten-free substitute), or Cottage/Sheppard's Pie with a butternut squash/sweet potato topping. Vegetable omelettes can also be the basis of a great meal. You could also try a small, lean steak with plenty of vegetables and mashed swede. Berries with Greek or natural yogurt (mixed with protein powder if preferred) is a good option for dessert. A couple of squares of dark chocolate and a small glass of red wine (if desired) are great, also. Fruit is fine, eaten in moderation (around three portions daily). Berries are ideal, as are stone fruits (plums, peaches, nectarines and apricots). I you find these ideas helpful.
Hello, For best results, it is advisable that you consume two-three servings daily; one post-exercise, and the other(s), to bridge any nutritional gaps, such as mid-morning or afternoon. It can be used as a meal replacement, but personally speaking, it is perhaps more appropriate to reserve this for convenience purposes; developing long-term healthy eating and exercise habits, and utilising Diet Fuel as a recovery product and a healthier alternative to snacking.
If you are using Diet Fuel to replace a meal which would normally have more calories than a diet fuel serving then yes this can be taken without exercise but in order to get the best out of any supplement then exercise would be highly recommended. If you are consuming this product with no alteration to your diet then there could be an increase in weight. It will only work if it replaces a higher-calroie meal.
It has no side effects and is a completely natural product. This is a low calorie meal replacement but we never recommend skipping meals for a shake, we just say if a meal is not at hand then it can be supplemented by a shake but not permanently replaced.
No this product is designed to still have a weight loss effect if consumed with a balanced diet and training programme.
That depends on your exercise regime intensity as well as your genetics, we would suggest a loss of around 2lbs per week is healthy and sustainable. We recommend cutting out fruit and replacing with vegetables if you can as the sugars in the fruit can spike blood sugar level which can lead to weight gain.
The supplements will come with a scoop inside and the serving sizes on the tub are in reference to that. Consume immediately after training and it can be replaced in place of a meal should you not be able to get to proper nutrition. On days off we recommend having 1-2 servings depending on the food you have for that day.
Hello, I would advocate taking one serving of Diet Fuel Ultralean post-gym; another, whenever you feel 'peckish', to ensure you are getting an adequate proportion of protein in your diet. This might be mid-morning, for example. I hope you find this information useful.
It is designed to replace a meal (or two) and then have 1 or 2 reasonable meals in addition per day. You can use it any time to replace any meal or two meals on non-training days. You may want to replace the meal that usually comes after your workout to take advantage of the quality protein in the product.
No. You must combine it with a calorie controlled diet and EXERCISE. Its easy to stick it on but you have to WORK to get it back off.
Yeah to dilute it mixing it with more liquid you will taste the product less and will still reap the benefits, be careful with how much milk you put in though because remember it contains lactose which is still a sugar.
You mix it as directed on the label and you can either have it in place of one meal or two of them in place of two meals and then eat a well-balanced meal or two. So each shake you have counts as one of your 3 meals. Eat at least one good food meal per day.
Yes you can have tea and coffee.
Yes, replace 1 to 2 meals per day with a shake and eat normally otherwise - no snacks and no excessive sugars, carbs, bad fats, etc and this will work very well. If you go back to the habits that caused you to gain fat previously, then yes you will gradually gain the weight back. If you exercise regularily, this is a great way to avoid gaining fat but also cleaning up your diet may be necessary in addition - some combination of diet or exercise modification will be necessary.
Each individual is different when it comes to decreasing body fat. By replacing some of your carbs or fat with protein in your diet you should consistenly lose weight. You should be aiming to lose 1 - 2 kilos a week and if you follow a calorie controlled diet and regular exercise program then you should be on the right track.
I can think of no legitimate reason why Diet Fuel would be considered unsuitable for use if you are taking medication to treat hypertension. If anything, I would say that embarking on a new health regime comprised of regular, moderate exercise and sensible eating habits would prove beneficial. However, it is always best to seek approval from your GP before making any significant changes to your lifestyle.
We strongly recommend you contact USN direct to be 100% sure as they are the manufacture.
Taking within thirty minutes post-exercise is ideal, to help replenish amino acid levels and enhance muscular recovery/repair.
It's a low calorie meal replacement designed for people wanting to drop bodyfat or weight. This works very well with a good training and diet regime.
Yeah you can use creatine with Ultralean no problems. Be sure to follow instructions to ensure you are getting the best from the product.
Any time of the day in between meals and post workout depending on your requirements.
Unfortunately it’s not that simple. If you are eating a well balanced healthy diet but also under eating your daily maintenance level of calories then yes you will lose weight but you will lose weight quicker if you can participate in some form of exercise 2-3 times per week for around 40-60 minutes.
For best results, consume Diet Fuel Ultralean as a recovery product, post-workout; drink (ideally) within twenty to thirty minutes after training. You can take an additional serving during the day: for breakfast, or mid-morning/afternoon, say, as required.
Yes, Diet Fuel Ultralean will function as a meal replacement product/protein supplement which can help you to achieve a more balanced nutritional intake, if consumed in conjunction with an otherwise healthy diet. It will not cause you to put on weight (it is in fact, designed to facilitate fat loss) if taken correctly. Muscle mass increase is achieved through intense training with a sound eating plan to support this process. The body cannot 'store' protein as a result of its surplus dietary intake; weight (fat) gain is the result of consuming calories/carbohydrates that are extra to the body's energy needs. I hope this answers your question. You might also consider a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplement, to further aid recovery and the development of lean muscle mass. You could try USN BCAA Power Punch 400g, £29.99.
The answer depends upon your body weight, lean muscle mass, genetics, current diet and how long and intensely you would exercise. Also, you could lose 2kg of fat and gain 2 kg of muscle and so not lose any weight, yet look better for it. So this is an impossible question to answer accurately. In general, this would be possible if your current diet has significantly more calories than you'd be consuming with the shake meal plan.
