    Should I exercise during my Yokebe Diet?

    Exercise is good for your heart, your brain and your shape. In order to lose weight, it is important to achieve a negative energy balance. This means your body should burn more calories than are consumed through your diet.

However, exercise can bring additional positive weight loss effect, allowing you to reach your ideal weight faster. We recommend everybody should have moderate physical activity every day to stay healthy. Don’t hesitate to do a brisk walk 30 minutes per day or use the stairs instead of the lift.

  • Can I have snacks whilst using Yokebe? If so, what types and how many?

    Everyone has different calorie requirements depending on their shape, genes, daily activity, age and gender. The important thing to remember is that you are creating a calorie deficit in order to facilitate weight loss, the greater the deficit the more weight you will lose. But is it important to ensure you are getting the macro and micronutrients your body needs.

    Our general guideline is to snack on fruits and vegetables when you feel hungry between meals. Non-starchy vegetables (this does not include peas, corn, sweet potato and butternut squash) are unlimited and fruits should be limited to 3 a day. Very low calorie meals like thin soups are allowed if you feel the need (recipes and ideas for other low calorie meals can be found here ).

    Why do you burn fat with Yokebe?

    Using Yokebe as a meal replacement helps create a calorie deficit. Since these calories are suddenly not available, the body takes them out of its fat reserves. At the same time, the body continues to be supported by the high quality protein, which supports muscle mass.

    Will I gain the weight back when I come off the Yokebe Diet plan?

    The great thing about losing weight with Yokebe is that you lose fat but the high level of Proteins means you retain muscle mass and keep your metabolism active. So you should avoid the yoyo effect.

    The Yokebe diet is a good moment to ‘reset’ and learn new nutritional habits, it is important to continue with a healthy lifestyle & eat sensibly after your Yokebe diet to avoid gaining weight again. You can continue to use Yokebe as a weight management tool after you reach your goal, for example by replacing lunch with Yokebe when you’re going to have a big dinner that evening.
