I came across Formulite at the ANZMOSS (Australian and New Zealand Metabolic Obesity and Surgery Society) conference last year. The decision to switch was easy and logical – more protein and less sugar. Many of my patients continue to use Formulite after surgery. Weight loss success is a team effort and Formulite is part of that team.

Formulite is my product of choice when it comes to protein/meal replacement shakes. The nutritional profile of these shakes speaks for itself with >30g of protein, a low carbohydrate content and probiotic benefits. There is so much to love about formulite. Including that this shake is free from artificial sweeteners!

At Pharmacy NEO we like to stock and recommend brands which are a bit unique and have great formulas that really work. We love Formulite for that reason. Unlike other similar products, Formulite is not loaded up with skim milk powder. Formulite is nutritionally balanced, low in sugar, high in protein and contains probiotics and enzymes. Our customers have found it really works and they love the flavours and the variety of presentations. We are finding it continues to grow in popularity and we no sooner stock up, and we have to reorder again!

Formulite has been a fantastic VLED alternative for our bariatric patients to use. We love the fact it does not contain any artificial sweeteners and our patients suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) do not experience the same GI upset that many other meal replacement brands cause. Furthermore, the higher protein content makes it easier for us to meeting our patients protein requirements and prevent the loss of lean muscle mass. Our patients have provided positive feedback in regards to the VLED shake flavours and appear to thoroughly enjoy the high protein lupin soups. I confidently recommend Formulite as an option for our bariatric patients to used during their VLED phase knowing it will induce nutritional ketosis, shrink the liver by depleting glycogen stores and optimise their nutritional status in the lead up to weight loss surgery.

I recommend Formulite soups and shakes to my patients as a meal replacement or as an in between meal snack as part of their weight loss management plan, specifically because of the favourable nutritional profile. It is low in carbohydrates and sugar, high in protein and fibre, and contains stevia rather than artificial sweeteners. This is particularly important for people with diabetes where carbohydrates and in particular sugar, can cause spikes in blood glucose levels. The high protein formula assists with more stable blood glucose profiles and can also provide a prolonged source of energy which may improve satiety for longer periods. I have an increasing number of patients using this high quality Australian made product with positive results.

An enormous amount of time and clinical research has gone into the development of this protein drink – so I was confident of what I was buying. I have found no awful aftertaste, which seems quite common with some other drinks. It is super easy to stay on track.”

I used Formulite as a VLED before surgery, but now I use it once daily as a weight maintenance protein shake. There’s a big range of flavours, the bottles are BPA free and you can hide them in your handbag.  As much as we try, five daily serves of vegies aren’t everyone’s cup of carrot juice! So I know Formulite gives my body what it needs – to help keep me going all day, everyday

We see quite a lot of patients undergoing bariatric surgery who require a well-formulated liquid product pre- and post-surgery. We have had zero poor feedback on Formulite and will continue to recommend it to patients where there is clinical justification to do so.”

Formulite is our preferred brand of meal replacement at Weight Loss Surgery Support. The low sugar, high protein content is ideal for our clients both pre and post-surgery. We've also received great feedback on the taste, making is an easy dietary change to implement.

As an endocrinologist with an interest in diabetes and weight control, I see many patients struggling with weight, despite a healthy diet.  Formulite is an Australian company and has a big focus on locally-sourced products; with less sugar and higher protein than other meal replacements.

Formulite provides effective, pre-operative weight loss with comprehensive nutritional support. Most importantly, it caters for patients with gluten sensitivity or allergies.

The flavour, texture and most importantly the results are highly appreciated by customers which is why at My Compounding, we have no hesitation in recommending Formulite.

Since having children, I have struggled over the years to lose weight and regain my old energy levels. Formulite has helped to curb my cravings and reach for unhealthy snacks. For busy mums, I highly recommend this product.”

I blitz Formulite with ice and drink it on the go when taking the kids to school or on the way to work. The “shake and take” bottles are convenient and Formulite isn’t super sweet. Since replacing breakfast with Formulite (and without changing anything else except stopping snacking), I have lost 19.5kg in 6 months.
