    Meal replacement shakes increase weight loss by 5.6 pounds after three months, and 5.3 pounds after one year according to a analysis of six studies.

    All studies replaced two meals per day with meal replacement shakes, and included at least one meal of regular food.

    All diets were low calorie containing 800 to 1600 calories per day.

    One study lasted 3 months; four studies lasted one year; and one study lasted over four years.

    The dropout rate between groups was the same after three months, but was lower after one year in the meal replacement groups as in the reduced calorie groups.

    “[Meal Replacement] interventions can safely and effectively produce significant sustainable weight loss and improve weight-related risk factors of disease,” the authors of the study concluded.

    The analysis was performed by a team of researchers headed by Stephen Heymsfield from the Obesity Research Center at St Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, Columbia University in New York, analyzed six meal replacement studies.
