In my last blog post, I shared my experience going 100% SATURO for 3 weeks.
While this was a great way to save time and lose weight, most complete food users only replace one meal a day. Knowing that 100% complete food would not be a long term sustainable diet for me, for social and emotional reasons, I switched to a mixed diet. – by Armin
For which situations is SATURO suited best?
While we know, that this depends a lot on personal life circumstances, there are many patterns to be found.
The breakfast is the meal most commonly consumed alone, as are complete food meals. This makes it a prime candidate for a healthier replacement.
It also is one of the main meals oftentimes skipped when in a hurry, or being consumed on the go to your workplace.
Finally, many people have a routine, eating the same breakfast every day, oftentimes a sugary cereal mix.
So it makes a lot of sense, that the complete food survey from 2018shows, breakfast being the meal replaced the most.
The second best opportunity for a complete meal is eating out.
Restaurants, food stands and canteens oftentimes offer fairly unhealthy foods.
The result is a worse nutritional mix than we would like to have and in some cases the energy drop after a fatty lunch.
When you want to get stuff done, but feel like taking a midday nap…
Here, the price difference to complete food also kicks in hard
MC Donalds cannot compete with powder meals from 1,43€ per 500 kcal to ready to drink for ~3,50 € (without all the subscription and bulk benefits).
For people with food allergies eating out might be a gamble with cross contamination and unlabelled allergens.
There are of course unlimited occasions for complete meals.
Pre- and post workout, on-the-go, filler meals, travelling or hiking, …
