A RealEasy way to slim down
The Real Easy Program is different. It is clinically proven, a completely safe, natural, and highly effective way to achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. The RealEasy™ with PGX meal replacement shakes will greatly diminish appetite, so you will eat less, making weight loss almost effortless.
RealEasy with PGX Meal Replacement shakes are perfect for anyone striving to achieve healthy weight loss and control their appetite. PGX is useful in a weight-reduction program as part of an energy-reduced diet and healthy lifestyle.
The researchers found that participants in a recent weight loss study using RealEasy with PGX meal replacements consistently lost up to 2 lb per week, which was primarily body fat. In addition to the loss in body fat, participants maintained or increased lean muscle mass, and body water levels were unaffected. This means a healthier and toned body composition with a higher metabolic rate was achieved, helping the participant to lose weight more effectively and keeping it off over the long term. Over 2–3 months, 95% of participants lost an average of 1–2 lb per week. Weight loss was consistent. Body fat was lost predominantly, not lean muscle or body fluid.
Why PGX works
Over the past two decades, scientists have discovered a great deal about the action of insulin and about how appetite and food cravings affect our lives. People who struggle with their weight are often affected by what we call “the blood sugar roller coaster,” where blood sugar levels can rise and fall dramatically before and after meals, causing stress on many body systems and functions. Left uncontrolled, the blood sugar roller coaster can lead to many health problems – including weight gain.
PGX is a blend of naturally occurring, water-soluble plant fibres produced through Natural Factors’ proprietary EnviroSimplex® process. By absorbing water at a higher rate, gram for gram, than regular dietary fibres, PGX helps promote a feeling of fullness to reduce appetite. It also helps release glucose into the bloodstream gradually and brings blood sugar to normal levels. It provides a highly effective way for anyone dealing with fluctuating blood sugar to manage cravings and lower cholesterol levels naturally.

What is In RealEasy with PGX?
All ingredients in the RealEasy with PGX shakes are important; however, two of these ingredients play a key role in helping with your weight loss journey.
The first ingredient is protein. It’s important to have protein with every meal. Protein plays an important role in helping encourage and maintain weight loss. Protein provides the building blocks for developing and maintaining lean muscle mass. Getting enough protein to prevent your muscles from shrinking and metabolizing can be tricky when on a calorie-restricted diet plan. Using meal replacement shakes for weight loss can go a long way toward getting all your protein requirements and helping you hold on to your muscle mass; as muscle burns more calories than fat, the more muscle you have and retain, the more body fat you can expect to lose.
The second ingredient – more of an undercover agent in the RealEasy shakes – is PGX, a highly concentrated and effective form of soluble fibre. Fibre offers valuable health benefits and is very important for overall health. Fibre refers to carbohydrates that cannot be digested. They contribute very few calories. There are two main types of fibre – insoluble (which doesn’t absorb much water) such as wheat bran, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fruit skins, and soluble (which absorbs water) such as oats, barley, legumes, and fruits. Both are important for good health, but soluble fibre is particularly significant for weight management.
The ability of soluble fibre to reduce appetite, balance blood sugar, and lower cholesterol is directly proportionate to the amount of water it can absorb (volume) and the thickness it develops as it moves through the stomach and intestine (viscosity). Gram for gram, PGX is far more effective than any other known dietary fibre.
The Real Easy Program is really flexible!
The Real Easy Program can be a comfortable way to improve eating habits for life. Simply replace two meals each day using RealEasy with PGX meal replacements. Depending on your weight loss goals, you can eventually reduce to one meal replacement daily once you have reached your desired weight. Since PGX is also available as a standalone ingredient, you can take PGX before meals to help you feel full, lessen your appetite, and reduce cravings. You can either continue taking one or two meal replacement shakes each day once your weight loss goals are achieved, or you can reduce to one meal replacement shake and take additional PGX before meals, or, if eventually, you stop taking the meal replacement shakes, you can continue taking PGX before one or all of your meals.
How do you know PGX is working for you?
You’ll be satisfied with smaller portions – the ability of PGX to expand with water and food creates more volume in your stomach. You’ll experience a prolonged sense of fullness – the viscosity of PGX slows the digestion of your meals, which keeps you feeling full and satisfied for longer. This feeling of fullness and better blood sugar balance in healthy individuals helps reduce the between-meal and evening food cravings that can add unwanted calories to your diet.
Adding Real Easy PGX to your diet
Add 2 scoops (61 g) of RealEasy powder to 250–500 mL of water and shake in a shaker cup or mix in a blender until smooth to make a delicious, satisfying drink. Drink immediately after mixing, as it thickens quickly. When first taking RealEasy begin with 1 scoop (30.5 g) in 125–250 mL of water and gradually increase to 2 scoops (61 g) as directed above. Use 1–2 times daily as a meal replacement.
The adjustments your body goes through with PGX are the same as when you add more dietary fibre such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes to your diet. It can take time for your body to adjust to increased amounts of fibre, and PGX is no exception. If you take PGX consistently and increase the dose gradually, allowing your body time to adapt, you will be able to consume a highly effective dose within a couple of weeks or less.
If you experience gas, bloating, or changes to your bowel movements:
- Reduce your PGX dose to the minimum, then slowly increase it, allowing your body time to adjust to the extra fibre.
- Supplement with probiotics (friendly bacteria).
- Take carminative herbs such as fennel, anise, and caraway to alleviate symptoms.
- Vitamin C and magnesium can be helpful as higher doses can promote loose bowels.
- Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day.
Some people may experience temporary constipation, diarrhea, or loose stools when they first start taking PGX, especially if they have not been getting enough fibre in their diet.
If you are taking medication, take it one hour before or two hours after taking RealEasy. If your goal is to achieve weight loss, or if you have diabetes or on cholesterol lowering medications, consult a qualified health care practitioner before use. Consult a health care practitioner if you are under 18 years old, pregnant or breastfeeding, or have health concerns. Keep out of the reach of children.
