How to Use Ensure to Lose Weight

By James Clark

Ensure is a liquid supplement for adults who wish to add a healthy balance of vitamins and nutrients to their diet. One 8 oz. bottle of Ensure contains a full serving of protein, potassium, dairy and dietary fiber, while remaining low in calories and saturated fats. Drinking Ensure regularly can help you maintain a healthy diet while losing weight. Ensure is available for purchase at local supermarkets, department stores and drug stores. Using Ensure to help promote weight loss is a simple process that does not require any special skill.
