The VIVRI system was created so that once you achieve your goals you may continue on a healthy maintenance plan taking SHAKE ME! just once a day. SHAKE ME! helps you nourish your body with only 230 calories. If you leave the VIVRI system, you will not rebound as long as you maintain a balanced diet.
We recommend that you continue taking two Shakes and eating one balanced meal every day, even without hunger. Regardless of your appetite, your body needs to receive nutrients constantly to reach a proper metabolic rate. To eliminate required calories by suppressing a meal can cause fatigue and malnutrition.

Yes, specialized protein is a key element of VIVRI Shake Me!. Let’s talk about it.
Why is Protein Important?
VIVRI Shake Me! contains premium quality protein which is a key element to help maintain lean body mass
Offers three unique sources of protein: premium sourced whey, milk protein isolate from hormone-free, US dairy cows and European, non-GMO vegetable (pea).
Each type of protein has a different amino acid profile, whey protein is high in branched chained amino acids, which are particularly important for muscle building. Pea protein, on the other hand, is high in arginine and glutamine, which remove the excess of ammonia (a waste product of exercise) from the body.
A combination of proteins, such as that in VIVRI® SHAKE ME! ® provides the most complete amino acid profile. Both, whey and pea protein have a unique effect on hunger (see attached papers on pea protein satiety and pulses on satiety and weight management.
Specialized Protein Blend is a key element of VIVRI Shake Me!
Your body is mainly constituted of protein. Protein serves as a building block of bones, muscles, cartilage and even blood, and it also serves to restore damaged tissue. Though, your body, however, cannot store protein the way it does with carbohydrates and fats, then you need to make sure you get enough every single daylight.
How Much Protein do You Need?
The average person needs 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight per day, or 55 grams for a 150-pound person. However, the amount of protein needed relates directly to the level of activeness. The more active you are, the more protein you need.
People who exercise recreationally need between 1.1-1.5 g/kg per day, while high performance athletes require up to 1.8 g/kg daily. Shockingly, up to 38% of adult men and 41% of adult women don’t even get the bare minimum of 0.8 g/kg daily!.
What are the benefits of a high-protein, low-carb diet when combined with a reduced calorie diet?
Numerous research studies have now proven that a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet, reduced calorie (between 1200 and 1500 calories daily)has many healthy benefits:
It has been found that overweight women who follow a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet experience greater weight loss than those who eat a low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet, even when the total caloric intake is the same. A possible answer for this, is that it takes more energy to burn protein than carbs.
Satiety (hunger control)
People rate their level of satiety as significantly higher after eating a high-protein meal. Consuming protein raises levels of ghrelin, an appetite-stimulating hormone, so you’ll be less likely to snack and eat between meals.
Protein intake is inversely related to abdominal girth. The less protein you eat, the more likely you are to have a big belly. That’s probably because protein is thermogenic, increasing your body’s production of heat, which raises your metabolic rate, helping you burn more fat.
Weight loss can be deceptive. If you’re consuming too many carbs and not enough protein, you may weigh less than you are supposed to, though you may still seem overweight. An important fact for weight losing is to make sure you are burning fat but not muscle.
The good news is that people who stick to a high protein diet, are better able to preserve them lean muscle mass, rather than those who eat a high-carbohydrate diet.
Blood lipids, blood pressure, blood sugar maintanence
High-protein and reduced calorie diets support normal, healthy levels of blood lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides), blood pressure and blood sugar.
CAUTION: Who Should Not Follow a High Protein, Low-Carb Diet?
Anyone who is pregnant or nursing, or has kidney or liver disease, should consult with a healthcare professional before starting a high-protein and low-carbohydrate diet.

Clinical studies have shown that structured weight loss programs, based on one or two daily meal replacements, are proven to be effective tools for weight control. In fact, those researchers have shown that meal replacement plans support a balanced, rapid weight drop at first, followed by weight maintenance and enhanced lean body mass.
A well designed meal replacement plan promotes weight loss and fat loss, supports muscle maintenance and is more effective than traditional calorie counting diets. A high protein shake can also be used by athletes as a snack, to help them increase their strength and resistance.
