Q: Am I supposed to have the shakes instead of food?
A: Yes! This is a meal-replacement program, meaning the product is meant to replace a meal or a snack.
Q: How many meal-replacement shakes should I drink each day?
A: We recommend using two shakes a day in place of two full meals, or one meal and one large snack.
Q: How long will it take to see results?
A: While many people report seeing improvement in blood sugar levels after a week, to see significant lasting results you should plan to stay on the program for three months.
Q: Can I mix the shake with milk?
A: We recommend mixing with water, but if you prefer the taste with something thicker, then we recommend using unsweetened, unflavored almond milk, because it has almost no carbs. If you mix the shake with a high-carb beverage like milk you will not see the same great results.
Q: Can I still drink my morning coffee or tea?
A: Yes, you can have coffee or tea, but we recommend not using sugar or milk.
Q: What should I expect when starting the diet?
A: You should notice that blood sugar levels don't spike after having a shake, and that over time your fasting blood glucose should begin to come down. Many people who choose to replace at least two meals a day also report losing weight when they begin the diet.
Q: Should I check with my doctor before starting Type2Diet?
A: Yes, we recommend that you check with your doctor before starting Type2Diet. Because this is a ketogenic diet your blood sugar is likely to drop during the program. You should consult with your physician to determine if this program is right for you. If you take medication for blood sugar, that may need to be adjusted before you can begin the program.
