It is extremely important that you get in all of your Fuelings and the full portions of your lean and green meal(s) each day. Each Fueling is scientifically formulated with the right balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat which helps promote a gentle, but efficient fat burning state on the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan. Each Fueling also contains high-quality protein which helps retain lean muscle mass and a patented probiotic, GanedenBC30®, which helps support digestion. Skipping a Fueling may cause you to miss out on key nutrients, including your daily vitamins and minerals, which are essential to your health and success on the Program. It will not help to increase your weight loss; in fact, it may have the opposite effect!
If you have to decide between "skipping" a meal or "doubling up" to ensure you get in all of your Fuelings and lean and green meal(s) within a 24-hour period, it is better to double up (eat two Fuelings at the same time) than to miss the nutrition provided by one of the Fuelings.
