As one Yokebe shake is between 273-302kcal (depending on flavour), you can achieve the desired negative energy balance without exercise when replacing two of your three meals a day with a Yokebe shake. However, exercise can bring additional weight loss benefits, allowing you to reach your ideal weight faster. We recommend everyone 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.

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 ).
