How does it work?

The Yes You Can diet works by substituting one to two main meals each day with a fortified shake. It also recommends that you take daily dietary supplements & follow the Traffic Light Diet for your remaining meals & snacks.

Meal replacement shakes

Yes You Can meal replacement shakes are low in calories và high in protein.

A single serving of the meal replacement powder provides 200 calories, 15 grams of carbs, 7 grams of fat, and đôi mươi grams of protein.

For most, this is a significantly lighter meal than usual. Thus, the shakes may lead khổng lồ weight loss by restricting calories.

Indeed, many studies have demonstrated that meal replacement shakes can be an effective approach lớn losing weight (1, 2, 3).

However, no published studies exist on the Yes You Can shakes specifically.

Dietary supplements

The Yes You Can plan includes four dietary supplements, advertised to lớn “help you through your transformation.”

When taken daily, these weight loss supplements are intended lớn boost your metabolism, curb hunger, promote a healthy gut, và revitalize hair, skin, and nails.

While studies on these particular supplements are unavailable, research supports a few of their main ingredients.

For example, some studies suggest that green tea extract — found in the Slyên Down supplement — may lead to significant weight loss và help with weight maintenance, though findings are mixed (4, 5).

Traffic Light Diet

The Yes You Can weight loss plan includes a nutrition guide lớn complement the meal replacement shakes & supplements.

The guide explains portion sizes and how lớn follow a Traffic Light Diet.

The Traffic Light Diet originated in the 1970s, to lớn help address the rising rates of childhood obesity. Since then, it’s been adopted by many weight loss programs, including Yes You Can (6, 7).

The concept is straightforward. Foods are divided into three categories:

Yellow foods. These are foods you can eat from time khổng lồ time. For example, refined grains, eggs, và low-fat dairy products.Green foods. These are foods you can eat often. For example, whole grains, lean meat, poultry, fish, và most fresh fruits và vegetables.

Studies have shown that the original traffic light diet may be useful for weight management in children, but retìm kiếm is lacking on how effective sầu it is for adults (6).

Also, no studies have sầu evaluated the Yes You Can version of the diet.


The Yes You Can diet replaces one lớn two meals a day with low-calorie shakes and weight loss supplements. It also follows a portion-controlled Traffic Light Diet for remaining meals & snacks.

Reducing calorie intake is key khổng lồ losing weight, but it can be difficult in an environment filled with enticing, high-energy foods.

No studies exist on Yes You Can shakes. However, research suggests that meal replacement shakes may help you thua thảm and maintain weight by controlling portion sizes, creating a calorie deficit, và keeping you full with fewer calories (3, 7).

In one 12-week study, 45 dieters lost an average of 11 pounds (5 kg) by replacing 2 meals per day with healthy meal replacement shakes (1).

In another study, individuals lost an average of 25 pounds (11 kg) while following a calorie-restricted diet involving 2 meal replacement shakes each day for 16 weeks (8).

Also, a thorough reviews of six studies demonstrated that meal replacement beverages may be more effective than traditional, low-calorie food-based diets.

The nhận xét found that dieters using daily meal replacement beverages lost 7–8% of their body toàn thân weight compared khổng lồ 3–7% on a traditional, low-calorie diet (9).

The Yes You Can diet may have sầu some benefits besides helping you thua trận weight.

Convenient and portable

Yes You Can products can be ordered from the website và shipped straight khổng lồ your door.

On the downside, relying on shakes may hinder you from developing lifelong, healthy habits, such as cooking & planning nutritious options for busy days.

Therefore, you may go back lớn old, unsuccessful habits as soon as you’re off the diet.

May help boost vitamin & mineral intake while dieting

When you’re on a low-calorie diet, it can be challenging lớn get all the nutrients you need khổng lồ stay healthy (10).

Yes You Can meal replacement shakes are fortified with 21 vitamins and minerals, including Vi-Ta-Min D & iron — two nutrients people are commonly deficient in (11, 12).

However, the shakes laông xã certain essential nutrients, such as calcium and potassium.

In fact, a single serving of the meal replacement powder provides only 8% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) for calcium and only 2% of the RDI for potassium.

This means your remaining meals and snacks must be very rich in calcium và potassium, or you have to lớn purchase & take yet another supplement to lớn avoid nutrient deficiencies.


Yes You Can is a promising diet solution for busy individuals. The shakes are convenient, portable, & provide 21 essential vitamins & minerals, which may be lacking in your diet. Still, it may be low in other nutrients, lượt thích calcium và potassium.

Although the Yes You Can diet may help you thảm bại weight, the plan does have several disadvantages.

May be difficult lớn stick to

The Yes You Can diet plan may help with quiông chồng weight loss but may be difficult to lớn stichồng khổng lồ in the long term, as it’s highly restrictive.

Not only are you limited khổng lồ meal replacement shakes for one to two meals each day, but the plan pushes a restrictive sầu version of the Traffic Light Diet for your remaining meals.

This diet eliminates many foods, including some healthy options lượt thích banana và mango.

Also, studies suggest that meal replacement diets may be hard lớn adhere to (1, 2).

For example, 49% of participants dropped out of a 12-week study that replaced breakfast và lunch with a beverage (1).

Products are highly processed

Yes You Can shakes are highly processed & may not be the best option for overall health.

Though the shakes are fortified with 21 essential nutrients, they can’t compare lớn the benefits of a wholesome, food-based diet.

Whole foods offer much more than what is listed on any nutrition label.

Fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, và legumes contain plant compounds that have sầu been linked khổng lồ many health benefits, including a reduced risk of many chronic diseases (13).

Uses multicấp độ sale to sell products

Using a multilevel marketing strategy, Yes You Can coaches purchase products at a discount and sell them bachồng khổng lồ you directly for profit.

According to the website, coaches also provide one-on-one guidance and support.

This can be dangerous since there’s no guarantee that these coaches have any formal training in nutrition, health, or counseling.
