I’ve been drinking Plenny shakes for more than a year. It’s a good product overall but I’ve noticed one thing: not only it’s hard to lose weight on Plenny, it’s actually hard for me to even mantain my weight… unless I’m okay with not hitting 100% of recommended values of certain nutrients. Which, um… no.
Yes, I know it all depends on person but to my understanding an average 30+ woman living a rather sedentary lifestyle (as many of us do) and having an office job needs max. 1800 kcal a day. If that’s the case, then there’s no way to get enough nutrients using Plenny shakes if you’re not ready to burn the excess… or am I missing something?
Again: I love shakes and will probably continue to use Plenny (fast breakfasts ftw) but it’s a pity it’s all so generic. I’m not big fan of cooking but can’t deny the versatility of regular food has not yet been mirrored by any shake product I’ve seen. If you’re a girl on your period, you eat more ferrum, if you’re working out hard, you get more calories and protein. I wish there was a way to recreate this in shakes and I hope that maybe one day somebody would offer us a basic flavored powder responsible for calories plus additional powders with macro- and microelements we could all mix to fit our individual needs.
