Add Protein to Lose! 

Drink a protein shake everyday for breakfast or lunch and boost your metabolism and get faster weight loss. This is one of the best things anyone can do to give their metabolism a boost.

Dieting Secret Weapon Smoothies 0

Posted on July 22, 2014 by Grace

These desert inspired sips are loaded with specially formulated whey protein designed to increase metabolism and blast fat fast.

Undenatured Whey is Best for Slimming Down!


Optimizes liver function

Undenatured whey is made using a cold-press method that preserves the chemical structure of three essential amino acids (cysteine, glycine and glutamate).  These boost the production of an antioxidant (glutathione) that speeds detoxication and fat burning in the liver.  Research in Nutrition journal found this helped subjects on a whey protein rich diet to lose weight and burn fat vs those who didn’t get the protein.

Revs Metabolism

Sipping a smoothie enriched with undenatured whey can increase calorie expenditure by 25 percent for up to 5 1/2 hours. The credit goes to whey’s leucine, an amino acid that prompts muscle cells to preferentially burn fat for fuel.

Dials Down Appetite

The highly absorbable proteins in undenatured whey triggers a 65 percent greater release of key hunger-suppressing hormones compared with other proteins.  The payoff: British researchers found that subjects who drank a whey protein shake felt fuller longer and consumed 19 percent fewer calories at their next meal than those given an alternate protein.

Whey Product Recommendation:

We love Reserveage Organics Grass-Fed Vanilla Whey Protein  for its smooth flavor and superfine texture.  Plus, studies show that whey derived from the milk of grass fed cows contains up to 5 times more metabolism revving conjugated linoleic acid than other whey proteins.

Belly Flattening Smoothies 2

Posted on May 20, 2014 by Grace

These smoothies are packed with plant protein to help you look and feel your all-time best with the help of Hemp Protein.

How Hemp Protein Speeds Slimming?

Hemp Revs Fat Burning

Unlike whey and soy based proteins, hemp protein is a rich source of essential fatty acids, including gammalinolenic acid (GLA).  Why that’s a plus: Canadian researchers found that GLA switches on brown fat a meta-bolically active form of fat that burns calories to generate heat.

Hemp Eases Belly Bloat

Hemp protein is up to 20 percent more digestible than soy protein. The credit goes to hemp’s unique globular structure, which is easily broken down in the small intestine.  This in turn prevents undigested protein from building up in the GI tract, where it can produce bloat-triggering gas.

Hemp Dials Down Appetite

Because hemp protein contains up to 13 grams of fiber per serving, it digests more slowly for long-lasting satiety. And according to the USDA scientists, women who up their fiber intake effortlessly consume 10 percent fewer calories per day.
