How to use the Fat Blaster For Men?
You replace one, to two meals a day with the shakes. As an example you might replace breakfast and lunch with the shakes.
For the normal dinner, have a low calorie choice meal.
If you want quicker results, replace 2 normal meals with the shakes. For slower weight loss, just replace one meal a day.
You should still eat a wide variety of healthy meals consisting of vegetables, healthy fats, dairy, fruit, lean protein, fish, legumes and wholegrains in your normal meals and snacks through the week.
Does Fat Blaster For Men work?
Yes it works, but you have to follow the guidelines and be in a calorie controlled diet.
In other words you can’t have pizza and beer every night, drink a shake and lose weight. You have to have sensible portion size meals and limit high calorie foods.
For you to lose weight you have to be in a caloric deficit. Where your body burns more energy (calories out through activity, rest, exercise) then it consumes. (Calories in from eating.)
Exercise can also help burn some extra calories and make you feel good.
What flavours does the Fat Blaster For Men come in?
It comes in two flavours, chocolate and vanilla flavour.
I personally enjoyed the chocolate, but the vanilla can be versatile for adding things like berries, banana or mango to it. (Be careful adding extra ingredients overall though as the calories can add up if you are not careful.)

How to make the Fat Blaster For Men shake?
You mix up 3 heaped tablespoons (55 grams) with 300 ml to 350 ml of water.
Blend well and drink. (If there are any clumps, blend for longer.)
If you mix it with a hand shaker, I found it similar to The Man Shake, in that 30 seconds shaking wasn’t quite enough time to mix it. Try 40 seconds to a minute of shaking it. Or use a blender like a Nutri Bullet or Ninja Blender.
Fat Blaster tip – Chilled water tastes nicer. Add ice to the blender if the water is room temperature.
Adjust the amount of water to suit your tastes and texture. If it is too thick or strong tasting, add more water.
Add less water next time if it is too runny, or weak.
(350ml of water was ideal for me.)

Can I drink FatBlaster For Men with water?
Yes you can just mix it with water, as it is designed to go with it.
For some people it may taste better with milk though, although then you are consuming more calories. For less calories use skim milk. Or for even less calories use some half water and half skim milk.
(We personal found that blended with water was fine for taste.)
When should I take a FatBlaster shake?
You might have it for breakfast and lunch.
Or if you are only having one shake a day, some days it might be for breakfast, other days for lunch. This can help you get a variety of different macros and micronutrients, as you swap meals.
(As an example you might have oats normally for breakfast and a salad for lunch. So if you mix and match you can still get a sorted variety of wholegrains, dairy and vegetables. Otherwise you might miss out on wholegrains if you just replace your breakfast meals.)
Mix and match, so it works in with your schedule, but ensure you get other varieties of other healthy food as well.
Because it mixes with water, it is ideal for taking to work. Although you do need a shaker container, or blender to mix it up well.
Is FatBlaster a meal replacement?
Yes, it is a meal replacement. But ensure you also have a wide range of other food sources like dairy, lean meats, healthy fats, wholegrains and legumes, fruits and vegetables.
Don’t rely solely on the shakes for your only source of nutrition. Use it in combination with a healthy varied diet.
Do you exercise with Fat Blaster?
Yes, exercise is recommended.
Even if you are limited for time or exercises you do, any exercise is better than nothing. Try walking for 10 minutes a day if that is all you can do, and then build up the length of time to 30 or even 40 minutes.
Bike riding, swimming, weight training, taking the dog for a walk, playing footy or cricket with the kids, be active and it all helps burn some calories and feel good.
Can I do intermittent fasting with the Fat Blaster For Men shake?
Yes, you can, but be careful you are getting enough calories and nutrients in your diet. The fact that you are fasting some days, means you already are on a low calorie diet, or no calories for the day.
You have to be mindful that your total calories for the week are sufficient.
How many carbs are in a FatBlaster For Men shake?

Does Fat Blaster For Men have caffeine in it?

Is FatBlaster For Men Shake vegan?

Ideally limit it to one night during the week, when you have a reward or treat day.
Can I drink coffee while on the FatBlaster For Men Shake?
Yes, but be mindful that sugar and milk in the coffees can add up the extra calories if you have several a day.

Fat Blaster vs The Man Shake vs OptiMan
Here are the calories for comparison between The Man Shake, OptiMan (from OptiSlim) and the Fat Blaster For Men.
So you can compare the calories more equally, we have also included calories per 100 grams.
As well as the protein, added vitamins & minerals, fibre and other nutrients, flavours, taste and texture is also important and can be individual preference. Price is also another consideration.
*We haven’t listed the amount of green tea, guarana and other so called fat burners, or shred blends, between the weight loss shakes. Because although their might be evidence the do work, they are unlikely to be of significance in the amount of weight lost. The weight loss results for such “fat burners” are likely to be very small.
