We’ve all heard that breakfast is the ‘most important meal of the day.’ Yet almost half of all Americans don’t eat breakfast each day! Of those that do eat breakfast, the nutrition tends to be high carbohydrate and low on key nutrients that can help you feel great all day.
Not eating breakfast can slow your metabolism. Just as you can’t ‘train’ a car to run without gas, we cannot train our body to run without fuel. By not eating breakfast (after having had dinner the night before), our body will have gone for 10-15 hours without ‘fuel.’ This can cause your metabolism to slow down, as the body tries to maintain weight, which can affect your ability to lose or maintain weight. Studies also show that those people who do eat breakfast tend to eat less throughout the day, and are on average thinner and healthier.
So we know that breakfast is important, but equally important is what type of “fuel’ you put in your body to start the day. The ‘average’ breakfast is heavy carbohydrate (cereal, pastries, and breads are 78% of all breakfasts), which can impact your blood sugar levels and leave you feeling sluggish or hungry. These breakfasts are low in protein, low in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and can be high in sugar, salt and fat. If we look at a typical breakfast of coffee with non-fat milk, a small orange juice, and a bagel with cream cheese… this breakfast can deliver 714 calories, 881 mg of sodium, and a lot of saturated fat. If you’re a woman on a diet trying to get to 1200-1500 calories per day, you just blew ½ of your calories for the day at breakfast, and did not get a lot of great nutrition.
The Vi-Shape™ Nutritional Shake mix is a great way to start your day, and is far superior to the ‘average’ breakfast or the ‘average’ competitor’s shake. It’s why we say it should be used by everyone, whether trying to lose, gain, or maintain weight. It’s a healthy way to start your day! A Vi-Shape™ Shake will provide a full serving of protein (nutritionists recommend 20-25 grams per meal, which the shake delivers), calcium, fiber, vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, prebiotics, and more. The proteins were specially processed to remove fat, lactose and carbohydrates in order to provide a clean, grit free, great tasting meal that is low sodium, low carb, and zero saturated fat. With our special proteins and fiber, you can help keep your blood sugar in a normal range, and feel great.
You can also save money with TSS. The typical ‘breakfast’ at a fast food place, or even at home costs far more than our Vi-Shape. Blended with non-fat milk or soy milk, and adding in some frozen fruit brings the cost to about $2.00. To get a comparable breakfast you’d need to have 5-7 egg whites, tomatoes, broccoli, toast, milk, milk, juice, and more.
Save money, live healthier, feel great, keep blood sugar healthy… and see how great you’ll feel starting the day with great nutrition.

The Vi-Shape shake mix contains a digestive enzyme called Aminogen®, to provide extra nutrient benefits. Aminogen is a patented, designer enzyme which breaks down protein and improves amino acid absorption. A natural, plant-derived enzyme, Aminogen is ideal for increasing lean body mass and strength and promoting deep muscle recovery. And Aminogen does all this while supporting protein digestion and reducing or eliminating the gas, bloating and constipation protein can sometimes cause.
