Kosher Meal Replacement Programs


Meal replacement programs are popular methods of losing weight. Each program varies, but the basic premise revolves around swapping out one meal (or more) with a portion-controlled replacement product, such as a diet shake, drink or bar. These replacement foods are intended to reduce caloric intake and curb appetite. The non-replacement meals of the day are intended to be low-fat, low-calorie and low-carbohydrate as well, with the dieter focusing on lean meats, fruits and vegetables for most of their dietary needs. Today, there are many Kosher Meal Replacement Programs, including Medifast Meals, Wonderslim, Herbalife and IsaLean.

Medifast Meals

Medifast Meals, Shakes and Snacks contain high levels of protein and 24 or more vitamins and minerals per serving. These replacement meals are developed with soy protein which is not only low in fat but also high in isoflavones considered to reduce the risk of heart disease. The program uses a 5&1 Plan in which the dieter eats five meal replacement meals per day and one low-fat, low-calorie home-prepared meal per day. All meals and shakes have been Kosher-certified.


WonderSlim is a meal replacement program full of a variety of meals, such as meal bars, snack bites, oatmeals and full meals. On WonderSlim, you may replace just one or all of your meals with a WonderSlim replacement meal, most dieters usually eat 5 to 6 meals a day in order to maintain a proper metabolism.


Herbalife is a complete meal replacement program whose products have been certified Kosher. The program centers on a trio of formulas, appropriately designated Formula 1, Formula 2 and Formula 3. Formula 1 is shakes and bars that provide easy, nutrient-dense replacement meals. Formula 2 is a multivitamin complex to provide essential vitamins and minerals that may be missing from your diet. Formula 3 is a protein powder, intended to be an addition to any Formula 1 shake for those wishing to add extra protein to their diet.


Kosher IsaLean Shake is a meal replacement that has been certified Kosher by a leading Kosher agency in the United States whose members are strictly Orthodox in both their beliefs and practices. These shakes contain high quality New Zealand whey and protein with no added hormones or antibiotics. They’re full of fiber, calcium and vitamins.
