The BFS supplements add high quality protein to the patient's diet as it decreases refined carbohydrates and fat intake.  These delicious supplements control the quality and quantity of the food intake as portion control and portion control is taught.  Protein is associated with increased satiety and decreased cravings for carbs, better maintenance of metabolic rate and provides a vital supply of essential amino acids to maintain lean body mass.  A protein supplement during the mid-day meal can influence the quality and quantity of food intake at dinner.  Not all supplements are created equal.  BFS's line of supplements offer a medically formulated, highly bioavailable protein source low in carbohydrates and fats yet very palatable.
