Diet & Nutrition / Smoothies?

I drink smoothies at least twice a day...my favorites are vanilla protein powder frozen banana, pomegranate seeds, frozen Pinapple, an orange and chia seeds.  Second is chocolate protein powder, frozen banana 1tbsp natural peanut butter and chia seed or flax seed...mmmmm

Why two a day? They sound really good.

Protein is so important in building muscles mass( which burns fat) and we love them..I'm getting a little lazy in my old age and they are just so easy and fast...we do a lot of "green" smoothies too with Kale, spinach, unflavoured protein powder,strawberries...plus it's just easier to get your fruit and veggies!

It's a great way to get your veggies and fruit! Protein scares me sometimes because I heard you can gain weight from it if you don't work out.

My husband lost 25 pounds..all he does is take the dog for a walk..lol. I've been working out for years and need to maintain and build muscle and to balance blood sugars...it's really hard to get the recommended daily amount of protein for me otherwise because I'm not a big meat or dairy eater and I can't have soy. I just feel better. The kind of protein powder is also very important..stay away from the cheap ones!

Hi Holly can I ask which protein you drink? Have you heard of Best Trust? It's suppose to be very natural no artificial anything...I been doing NOW Whey protein but willing to try Best Trust to get more natural ingredients.

Diet & Nutrition / Water/Tea/Shakes?

We replace our breakfast and lunch with protein smoothies...we put them in a thermos for lunches ( just give them a good shake before opening...you really need some protein with the job that you do!

Lol this would be the last advice i would give someone with an intensive job. But if you feel good with it :-)

It's meant as a meal replacement not a water replacement.

Motivation & Support / No results. Need advice

it can go up or down at anytime...google hypo and hyperthyroidism and check and see if you have any other symptoms....this is very common with women.

I would like to know where your thyroid level is sitting..might be worth a trip to the Dr if you have done everything..low thyroid (hypothyroid) is a cause for what you are experiencing and a whole lot more...good luck.
