What You Should Know
Megaburn is a specialty foods company based in Australia that launched in 1997. The goal of Megaburn products is to create food products that are natural and “well made”. Most of the products available on the official website are gluten and dairy free and are made with good bacteria such as lactobacillus. The website claims that this bacteria can help prevent colon cancer and candida.
There are many different products available from Megaburn that range from energy snacks and bars to muscle building protein powders. Though there aren’t any specific products directed solely at those trying to lose weight, a few products seem like they could help those who are already on a diet and exercise plan with which they are comfortable. Body Boost and the Megaburn snack bars are two products that look like they could help you lose a few pounds, probably as food substitutes.

Megaburn products are all natural alternative foodstuffs such as bars, shakes, drinks, and snacks. The most popular product from companies like this tend to be the snack bars, since they can improve energy and may even be used as meal replacements. The official Megaburn website doesn’t have the bars categorized as diet products, but it does say the bars can be used if you are on The Zone diet. Body Boost is a vitamin rich drink that has detoxifying properties and that may help your body function well.

Megaburn seems like a nice company that works hard to create sports nutrition products. The only problem we find is that none of the products are technically diet products. You can use the snack bars as a meal replacement but you will have no way to keep yourself from being hungry. These products are designed for athletes who usually already have a diet plan and exercise regimen in place. We recommend using a product that combines a fat burner with an appetite suppressant if you are looking for an effective, long-term weight loss product.
