INGREDIENTS:
  • Soy protein

    Soy is the most controversial protein today.  Unlike the Asian culture, where people eat small amounts of whole non-GMO soybean products, western food processors separate the soybean into two golden commodities—protein and oil.  And there is nothing natural or safe about these products.  Soy foods contain anti-nutritional factors such as saponins, soyatoxin, phytates, protease inhibitors, oxalates, goitrogens and estrogens.   

    Do your research as soy protein has been linked to breast cancer, brain damage, Infant abnormalities, Thyroid disorders, Kidney stones, Immune system impairment, Severe, potentially fatal food allergies, Impaired fertility, Danger during pregnancy and nursing.

  • Safflower oil complex

    Safflower is in the same family as Sunflowers, and is a natural source of Linoleic Acid – an omega-6 fatty acid that is essential in the diet.

  • Corn syrup solids

    Although this could fall into the yellow category we feel it important to point out a few things.

    For starters corn syrup solids are manufactured from corn syrup liquid through a process that removes 97% of the water from the liquid.

    The Center for Science in the Public Interest puts corn syrup and corn syrup solids on its “Cut Back” list.

    The CSPI says these corn syrup products are not toxic, but large amounts may be unsafe or promote bad nutrition.

    Corn syrup is a sweet, thick liquid that’s made by treating cornstarch with acids or enzymes.

  • Disodium phosphates 

    Disodium phosphate is used primarily as a food additive for stabilization, emulsification and phosphate fortification.  It’s considered safe in the form in which it’s added to food products, although in its pure form it can sometimes be toxic.

     

  • Mono- and diglycerides

    The public apparently caught on that partially hydrogenated oils were unhealthy; so now the FDA requires labeling for trans fat content, BUT only if it contains more than .49 g per serving, AND only if it comes from triglycerides! Not too difficult to get around that rule…simply decrease the serving size, or disguise the trans fats somehow…

    Of course, big industry doesn’t want us to know that they’re poisoning us…so, they exploited the loophole. They started using monoglycerides and diglycerides so they aren’t required to label the food as containing trans fats.

    Monoglycerides and Diglycerides are still manufactured, just like partially hydrogenated oils, and they still contain dangerous trans fats. Trans fats that aren’t required to be reported on the labels. Trans fats that are still dangerous to your health. Trans fats that are causing our children to develop diabetes and heart attacks.

  • Natural flavors

    The definition of natural flavor under the Code of Federal Regulations is: “the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.”

  • Silicon dioxide

    Silicon dioxide is found in many multivitamin and mineral supplements because silicon is necessary for good health.

    As a necessary nutrient for the health of your skin, hair, nails and bones, dietary silicon may also help to prevent arthritis and osteoporosis.

    It also works as an anti-caking agent, and is added as an ingredient in foods to help keep your processed foods appetizing.

  • Fibersol-2

    Fibersol-2 is a soluable fiber supplement that was designed to enhance digestive health.

  • Artificial flavors

    The search for “natural” sources of chemicals often requires that a manufacturer go to great lengths and expenses to obtain a given chemical. For this reason, synthetically produced flavors are frequently used in foods and beverages.

    Artificial flavors have been known to cause an array of health problems such as chest pain, headaches, fatigue, nervous system depression, allergies, brain damage, seizures, nausea, dizziness and many more.

  • Dicalcium phosphate

    Dicalcium phosphate is commonly added to food as a dietary supplement for a source of calcium and phosphorus.

    Due to its fairly high concentration of calcium, it should be used with caution by breast feeding mothers and those suffering from lung disease and kidney stones.

  • Manganese oxide

    Manganese(II) oxide is an inorganic compound with chemical formula MnO. It forms green crystals and is odorless. Manganese(II) oxide is the simplest ionic manganese oxide. Although it is classified as a very strong base, dissolved manganese(II) oxide is non-corrosive and does not attack the skin.

  • Vanillin

    Vanillin is an artificial vanilla flavoring.  *see our blog on artificial flavoring

    Most vanillin is synthetic and is made from guaiacol, which is a petrochemical precursor. Petrochemicals are important…for your car, your plastic lawn chairs, maybe even for something you would wear, but you do not want to be ingesting petrochemicals. Look for labels with pure vanilla to add flavor.
    Read the ingredient label.  If you see Vanillin, put it back.  Look for pure vanilla.

  • Sodium molybdate

    Sodium molybdate is a chemically altered form of the mineral element, sodium.

    Sodium is a natural salt and sodium molybdate is used in the food industry as a fertilizer and as a nutritional supplement for health.

    Sodium molybdate use in food may have some benefits, as well as some side effects.

  • Chromium dinicotinate

    Chromium dinicotinate glycinate, or CDG, is a form of the mineral chromium that is used for its potential health benefits.

    CDG binds chromium with niacin and glycine to enhance the uptake of chromium in your body and is the preferred form of supplement manufacturers due to its increased bioavailability.

  • Magnesium phosphate

    Magnesium phosphate is a general term for salts of magnesium and phosphate appearing in three forms: ⁕Monomagnesium phosphate ⁕Dimagnesium phosphate ⁕Magnesium phosphate tribasic Various forms have been used as laxatives and antacids.

  • Sodium selenite

    Sodium selenite, another name for selenium, is a mineral essential for optimal health, even though your body only needs small amounts.

    Sodium selenite is present in plant foods, in some meat and seafood, and in supplements.

    Selenium is touted as a treatment for a variety of diseases because it’s an essential component of glutathione, your body’s most potent natural antioxidant.

  • Potassium iodine

    Potassium iodine is an organic compound that is commercial sold as white table salt.

  • Green tea extract

    There is some scientific evidence that drinking green tea can improve thinking skills, enhance metabolism,  and might help lower cholesterol and other fats called triglycerides. Green tea consumption might also prevent or delay Parkinson’s disease and possibly help to prevent cancer of the bladder, esophagus, and pancreas. We’d give this ingredient a green but due to caffeine we are keeping it neutral.

  • Galangal rhizome

    Rhizomes are knobby underground stems that are known for their pungent and flavorful flesh.

    The rhizome family includes ginger, turmeric and galangal among a few other, lesser-known rhizomes.

    Galangal rhizome has been linked to improved digestion and arthritis treatment.

  • Cayenne pepper fruit

    Cayenne pepper fruit comes from red, hot chili peppers.

    It comes from the dried up pods of chili peppers and are used as a spice and for health purposes.

  • Cellulose/cellulose gum

    One of an array of factory-made additives, cellulose is increasingly used by the processed-food industry to thicken or stabilize foods, replace fat and boost fiber content, and cut the need for ingredients like oil or flour, which are getting more expensive.

    Cellulose is especially popular because it can be used in many ways in food and is relatively inexpensive.

  • Xanthan gum

    Xanthan gum is a sugar-like compound made by mixing aged, or fermented, sugars with a certain kind of bacteria.

    In manufacturing, xanthan gum is used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in foods.

  • Carrageenan

    Carrageenan are a family of linear sulfated polysaccharides that are extracted from red seaweeds.  They are widely used in the food industry, for their gelling, thickening and stabilizing properties.  Carrageenan  can be found in many foods, even foods labeled “natural” and “organic.”  It is widely used in dairy products (chocolate milk, whipping cream, ice cream, nonfat sour cream), frozen dinners, dairy alternatives (soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk), prepared poultry and cold cuts, nutritional drinks, and even infant formula.

  • Silica

    Silicon dioxide, or silica is actually made from fragmented granules of rock and mineral, so basically it is sand.

    Companies add silica to shakes to prevent them from clumping together during shipping and processing.

    Is it dangerous? Probably not. The mineral actually occurs naturally in all sorts of foods like vegetables and milk.

  • Ascorbic acid

    Ascorbic acid is another word for Vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties. Ascorbic acid works to preserve food.

    Thiamine mononitrate is a form of vitamin B1.

  • Folic acid

    Folic acid is a B vitamin. It helps the body make healthy new cells.

    “Folic acid” and “folate” mean the same thing.

    Folate is found naturally in some foods and folic acid is a manmade form of folate.

    Since 1998, folic acid has been added to most enriched bread flours, cornmeal, pasta, rice, and other grain products in the U.S. and Canada.

    This was done to help prevent spina bifida and anencephaly, two birth defects that are caused in part by too little folate in a mother’s body around the time her baby is conceived.

  • Biotin

    Biotin is a water soluble vitamin and another name for vitamin H.

  • Salt

    The average person in the U.S. consumes 3,500 milligrams of sodium a day. That’s equivalent to almost 9 grams of salt, or nearly 2 teaspoonfuls—way more than the 2,300 milligrams per day suggested by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.  Although salt in moderation has not proven harmful an increasing body of evidence indicates that we should reduce the amount of salt in our diet. The American Medical Association (AMA), the American Heart Association (AHA), the American Dietetic Association (ADA), and the National Institutes of Health have begun a campaign to cut the salt intake of Americans by one-half.

  • Acesulfame Potassium

    Just Google the “dangers of Acesulfame Potassium” and your screen will light up!   What is it? It is a calorie-free sugar substitute, also known as Acesulfame K or Ace K.  In the U.S., it is used in such products as candies, baked goods, frozen desserts, and beverages.    Here’s the problem it’s highly highly controversial, especially as of late.  Reported side effects: Long term exposure to methylene chloride can cause nausea, headaches, mood problems, impairment of the liver and kidneys, problems with eyesight and possibly cancer.   Because of such recent controversy towards it’s safety and side effects it’s been banned at leading retailers,  the most recent being Whole Foods. 

     

     

  • Maltodextrin

    Maltodextrin is a white powder often used in processed foods as a thickener or filler since it’s fairly inexpensive, as well as in pharmaceuticals as a binding agent.

    You’ll find it in canned fruits, snacks, cereal, desserts, instant pudding, sauces, and salad dressings.

    I wanted more for appetite suppression than this product offers. The only appetite suppressant in Right Size Smoothies is Chromium. Chromium is believed to increase metabolism and decrease appetite. I would highly recommend that if you want to use Chromium in your weight loss plan that you purchase a bottle at your local pharmacy or GNC. It is less expensive than Right Size Smoothies and likely more effective.

    Me and my mother gave it a try for about 4 weeks straight. I only lost 3 lbs. but my mom dropped 8 lbs. It might be due to my age and higher activity level being a college student. I stopped taking it but my mother still loves it and is benefiting greatly. If you’ve got some serious weight to lose ex: 25 lbs. then try this stuff out and see if it works for you like it did my mom.

    I found some positive reviews of this product online and decided to give it a try. I was able to find several tasty recipes from other users and I am enjoying a steady weight loss week after week. See if it works for you too.

Right Size markets their meal replacement shake heavily with the tagline that it’s going to be a “hunger smashing” option. At first glance, they seem to have a good thing going with isolated protein, but when looking at the label, several different red flags start to rise.

Right Size Shake offers a variety of vitamins, minerals, and essential elements that are meant to fight hunger and distribute good health to the body. Our editors, however, found that the delivery system is less than ideal, according to the criteria that has been set for review.
