6 nutrients that crush cravings and support a healthy metabolism

Discover how UP Proteins’ unique blend of nutrients and ultra satisfying ingredients boost satiety and support a healthy metabolism-without deprivation.

Here at UP Proteins, we know that healthy, sustainable weight loss (and weight maintenance) is never achieved with deprivation-it’s about scaling back on ultra processed fare that fills you with empty calories, and loading up on nutrient-rich foods that naturally crush cravings, fuel your body, and contribute to an all-around healthy metabolism. These nutrients make UP Proteins the ideal plant-based meal if you’re looking to get (or stay) svelte, minus the hunger pangs.

boosts satiety + builds calorie-burning lean muscle

There’s no denying the fact that protein is the most satiating macronutrient-meaning, it keeps you full the longest. When consumed first thing, it’s been shown to curb cravings and reduce snacking later in the day, potentially warding off weight gain. Not only that, but protein helps build metabolically active lean muscle-and the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you naturally burn at rest. One serving of UP Proteins contains 25 grams of protein from sources such as pea protein, whole grain brown rice, sacha inchi, amaranth, and quinoa.


boosts satiety + supports your gut

Like protein, fiber is incredibly filling and stays in your digestive system much longer than quickly digested refined carbs and sugars. Fiber also balances blood sugar, which can help reduce hunger and cravings for sweets, and numerous studies have drawn a connection between high-fiber diets and weight loss. Fiber also serves as food for the healthy bacteria in your gut-which, as you’ll learn, are also associated with maintaining a healthy weight. UP Proteins contains 4-7 grams of fiber per serving, or 14-25% of your recommended daily intake, from sources like whole grain oats, chia, flax, and inulin.


helps regulate appetite + metabolism

Gut bacteria play an important role in metabolism, appetite regulation, and satiety. When the “good” gut bacteria outnumber the “bad,” research has shown that levels of beneficial compounds called short chain fatty acids increase in the gut, which may trigger the production of hormones that regulate appetite. Other research has found that overweight people who took a probiotic supplement for 3 months had a significant reduction in visceral fat-the kind that surrounds vital organs and ups your risk for serious health issues. UP Proteins contains both L. rhamnosus and L. acidophilus probiotic strains

Omega-3 fatty acids:

boosts satiety + helps regulate metabolism

We should all know by now that healthy fats do not make you fat-in fact, they can do quite the opposite. Research has shown that increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids is often associated with a reduced likelihood of being obese (including reduced abdominal obesity). Experts think omega-3s might exert these beneficial effects in a number of ways, from increasing fat burn to suppressing appetite to reducing inflammation. UP Proteins contains omega-3 fatty acids from chia seeds, flaxseeds, and sacha inchi seeds.


regulates blood sugar + counters stress

Magnesium is a key mineral for energy production and metabolism, and it plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including blood sugar regulation. Research has found that higher magnesium intake is associated with lower fasting blood sugar, which could help keep junk food cravings in check. Additionally, magnesium seems to play an important role in managing stress-which can have a significant impact on metabolism and trigger mindless eating. Ingredients in UP Proteins such as kale, spinach, and cocoa contain magnesium, and one serving of UP Proteins packs 48-69% of your daily magnesium needs.

Vitamin D:

may influence fat metabolism + storage

Vitamin D deficiency is incredibly common, and low levels can mess with just about everything-including the ease at which you’re able to lose weight and how much body fat you store. One study found that overweight women on a diet and exercise regimen lost more weight if they also received a daily vitamin D supplement, while other studies suggest that increasing vitamin D intake may help reduce body fat even if it doesn’t affect weight. Experts aren’t quite sure why it has this effect, but one theory is that vitamin D affects metabolism in a way that reduces the formation and storage of new fat cells. While vitamin D is often difficult to find from plant-based dietary sources, UP Proteins contains 25% of your daily needs.

Definitely The Best One I've Tasted

I was skeptical about using water because most shakes taste watered down. This one however, blew my mind at how thick and creamy it was. I LOVE it!
