Dieting is a very personal activity for a lot of us. That is because every person has different strategies that help them maintain or lose weight. Yet, not all strategies for weight loss work all the time, and not all foods are healthy enough to be considered diet foods. I have had my share of dieting experience and diet tricks that sort of worked, could have worked, and never worked at all, which means that I am very reticent in recommending you a diet plan in this blog. However, I feel compelled to tell you that there is one diet challenge that seems to work for me at the moment, and it really took me by surprise.
The So Shape Diet challenge is a weight control program that originated in France. The program’s goal is to achieve weight loss in a “simple and no-fuss” way, which means that the products in the program are highly innovative, quick to prepare, tasty, and varied.
If you are the busy type, the So Shape program makes everything so easy when it comes to shedding a few pounds while keeping up with your daily activities.
The So Shape products are divided into either shakes or hot dishes. The shakes can be served hot or cold, and they come in different flavors, which I can assure as very tasty. I have a very picky tastebud for shakes and smoothies, and the So Shape shakes definitely passed my tastebud’s scrutiny, lol. My favorite flavors from the So Shape shakes are: brownie, sea salt caramel, cappuccino, and cookie cream. The So Shape shakes can be taken during lunch or even during dinnertime. To prepare it, just follow the instructions on the booklet given to you when you sign up for the So Shape challenge. TLDR: just add 8 ½ oz of water to the provided shaker and add the flavored powder from the sachet, and voila! If the shake is too thick, you can always add more water, use a bit of hot water to melt the powder during the shake preparation, or just keep shaking the shake. For me, the shakes can replace my whole meal, since most of them are around 200+ calories.

The So Shape dishes are very interesting because they come in similar packaging as the shakes, but instead of containing the powdered shake flavors, the So Shape dishes contain a powder mixture or flavor of the dish. A separate pack of pasta, such as macaroni, matches each dish sachet. Just like the shakes, the preparation for the dishes is also very easy. Just add 4-5 oz of water to the pasta (use the shaker as a measuring cup), heat it using a microwave or a pot, and then add the dish sachet. I love all the flavors of the So Shape dishes, and I use them to replace at least one of my meals. Every dish from So Shape is very filling, and I find myself no longer reaching for extra meals or snacks.

The So Shape challenge directs that you follow their advice or commandments stated in their booklet. Some of the advice includes: keeping yourself hydrated, allowing yourself to eat a free meal, eating lean protein and lots of vegetables while on the program, and trying to hold on to the program for the next three days to get used to the diet routine. This advice or commandments are what I really like about the program. So Shape allows you to diet, yet they remain flexible with what you can eat outside of the challenge. By guiding you on what to food eat and consuming their shakes that are high in protein and dishes in reasonable proportions, diet and exercise have been truly effective for me.
