Is Almased® lactose-free available?

The normal Almased® commercially available contains only a very low lactose content and usually does not cause any complaints in patients with lactose intolerance. Studies show that only 1 of 15 patients with lactose intolerance developed symptoms after taking Almased®. Nevertheless, the intake should be carefully tried out at the beginning of the diet.

Almased® in the nursing period – is that possible?

Fast and high weight loss through an Almased® diet during breastfeeding should be avoided (no more than 1 kg per week recommended). Due to the strong fat loss, there is an increased release of acids and toxins into the bloodstream and the risk of transfer into the breast milk. Due to an increased calorie requirement after pregnancy, the majority of breastfeeding women automatically lose a few kilograms of body weight. Alternatively, the patient can change her diet and become physically active to reduce weight. Almased® can be used in smaller doses as a dietary supplement (not for dieting) during the breastfeeding period.

Almased® and alcohol – is it compatible?

During the diet with Almased® alcohol consumption should be avoided if possible. In the human body alcohol leads to a disturbance of the fat metabolism and the water balance. As a result, less fat is broken down and water is withdrawn from the body.

At the same time, the absorption of nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract is affected. The results of an Almased® diet can therefore be massively influenced and in some cases cancelled out. If the one-time consumption of alcohol during a diet cannot be avoided, care should be taken to drink low-calorie alcohol (dry white wine, light beer, etc.).
