Determining the amount of Almased to take
Take your target weight (your ideal weight in pounds based on
your height) and dividing it by the number 5. This is the amount of Almased
in heaping teaspoons per day. The result is then divided by the number
3. This is the amount of Almased Protein Powder in heaping
teaspoons you should take for each meal in a low calorie or no calorie
liquid assuming you have three meals a day. (Example: 150 lbs. ¸ 5 =
30 / ¸ 3 = 10 teaspoons per meal.)
One can of Almased yields 100 slightly rounded teaspoons.
So if you are replacing all three meals a day, your can will last 4
days. If you are replacing 2 meals a day, your can should last
5-7 days and 10 days if you are replacing one meal per day.
Mixing the Almased drink
Mix the Almased Multi-Protein Powder in cold beverage
of your choice (i.e water, skim milk or juice). Use water for fastest
results. Place the powder in the glass first, then add the liquid, and
mix thoroughly. You can also blend Almased with 3-4 ice cubes
to make a smoothie.
is 100% natural, it contains no added sugar or preservatives. We
leave the flavoring up to you. We recommend a low calorie or no
calorie beverage. You can also add a few drops or a teaspoon of the
following flavoring agents: liquid vitamin C, vanilla extract, or
cinnamon. NOTE: Depending on the sugar content, the previous options
may slow down your weight loss and overall detoxification process
slightly; they are, however, effective ways of adding a little flavor
to the Almased drink.
Never mix Almased with hot liquid. Heat destroys the important
enzymes in the protein mixture.
Cleansing Phase - Day 1 & 2
This is the most important phase of the diet and will affect the
outcome tremendously. To begin the detoxification process with Almased,
it is necessary to cleanse your digestive tract. Take your preferred
natural laxative on the first day. Also, during the diet your
bowels should be emptied at least every 3 days. Wait 2-3 hours
and then take your first Almased drink to start the diet. Take
a total of 3 Almased drinks a day for the first two days.
dehydration and help with the detoxification process, you must supply
your body with at least 12-15 cups of liquid (preferably water) daily.
Stay away from coffee, teas with caffeine, alcohol (including beer and
wine), sodas, and fruit/vegetable juices because of added calories and
Reduction Phase - Day 3
Starting on the third day, replace 2 meals a day with the Almased for
as long as you need to reach your target weight. For each meal take
the amount of Almased calculated for each meal as above. Your
third meal (ideally lunch) is replaced with a regular well-balanced
This regular meal
should consist of lean meat (these are chicken, fish or tofu), raw or
cooked vegetables, and whole grains. You should not consume pasta,
refined sugars, white rice, white breads, candy, cakes, or any overly
processed, fried or prepared foods. These contain excessive artificial
ingredients and preservatives your body does not need. Keep drinking
as much water per day as you can but at least 10 cups per day.
2-3 ounces (size of your palm) of skinless chicken, 1-2 cups of salad
with a little oil and vinegar, or green vegetables, and 1 cup of brown
rice, or sweet potato.
After reaching your target weight and body fat percentage, it is
important to adjust your body back to a normal calorie intake and
burning rate. On the first and second week after the reduction phase,
reduce your Almased drinks to only one Almased drink a
day. The third and fourth week, take only one every other
day. Drink at least 10 cups of water a day.
Back to Normal
You can eat all foods you like but don’t overeat. Instead of
counting calories, count fat content. You should not consume more than
60g of fat a day. Try fruits, fresh vegetables and low fat milk
products as meals between if you get hungry. In order to maintain your
weight, renew your cells or for purification purposes, you can replace
1 meal per day with 6 to 8 teaspoons of Almased in a no/low
calorie liquid as needed.
Vegetable Broth & Vitamin Supplements
You can consume unsalted vegetable broth with or between your Almased
drink meals. Remember to drink up to 3 quarts of liquid (e.g.,
alkaline water, green tea, herbal tea, water) every day. Stay away from
coffee, caffeinated teas, alcohol (including beer and wine), sodas,
and fruit/vegetable juices because of added calories and sugars.
You may continue
the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. If you experience
some muscle pain after a few days, it is caused by free radicals being
dissolved by the diet. We recommend taking additional liquid or super

Almased suggests developing an exercise routine that fits into
your daily routine. Determine a time of day in which you are most
comfortable working out and set aside that time. If you do not already
exercise, start off slow and increase at your own pace. It is not
required that you do an extensive workout but even a short walk once a
day can help your overall health and increase your weight loss.
out and social events
Utilizing Almased as a meal replacement can be a great way of
balancing your daily caloric intake before a dinner party or social
event that requires you to indulge in a large meal. Simply take your
measured amount of Almased in a low/no-calorie liquid to
replace the meals before and after the dinner party or take 4 to 5
heaping teaspoons of Almased mixed in liquid 20-30 minutes
before eating a meal and you will feel full faster and eat less.
