Pic of the Week.
In exactly 37 days, I’ll be on the beach! So, I have really started to amp up my workout routine, make sure my diet is clean, and that I’ve got the portions under control.
Lately, I’ve been only wanting to eat snacks. I’m a firm believer in eating whatever your body is telling you to eat (within moderation, of course), so I’m still snacking. Of course, I’m going for healthy snacks: raw veggies, hummus, fruit, peanut butter, edamame, Greek yogurt, and protein bars (you should see my pantry).
Need more healthy snack ideas? Check out my previous blog post on the matter.
Anyway, I recently purchased a bag of Melaleuca’s Attain shakes, which contain 10 grams of protein per shake, and are said to contain “crave blockers” and fiber to keep the body feeling full and avoid any temptation to eat junk food. Um, give me that!
I’ve had two shakes now and they taste delish (I mix it with 8 ounces of unsweetened almond milk)! It is filling, and I’ve noticed when I do eat, I eat less. WIN.
From the website, “Attain with revolutionary, all-natural CraveBlocker®
helps stop cravings at both critical sources, putting you back in control. You can manage your weight without feeling hungry all the time. Without getting irritable. Without depriving your body of the nutrition it needs. Controlling cravings is an essential part of losing weight—and keeping it off for good.”
It comes in vanilla, strawberry, blueberry, and chocolate… of course I got the chocolate. However, I’m totally getting the strawberry and am going to mix it with the chocolate. BAM.
Just an FYI, I’m a preferred member of Melaleuca, so I get my products for way less dough. If you’re interested in signing up to be a preferred member, shoot me a message and I’ll be happy to set it up!
I seem to be on a protein-kick, and as pathetic as it sounds, I’ve got a little wish list going of protein I want to try. I’ve been eyeing Slender Bend by Protein World. Heard of it? Tried it?
According to the Protein World website, “This low calorie, high protein meal replacement shake will boost your metabolism, help you to feel fuller for longer and support the development of lean and toned muscle as you slim down. Protein is highly satisfying and helps build strong hair, skin and nails. We’ve also added a unique blend of green tea extract, raspberry ketones and multi vitamins to the mix, to curb those cravings and help you to become slimmer and healthier.*
Used as a meal replacement once or twice daily, the shakes help you to control your calorie intake enabling you to lose weight, healthily.”
What are some of your favorite healthy snacks, proteins, or meal replacements?
