Besides my family, you can say that my focus has been my health. With my new health initiative, my family has started to take their health more seriously also. One of the first things I’ve done is start watching what I’m eating. As of now, I’ve stopped my fast food addiction and focused more on fruits, vegetables and less greasy foods. My weekly routine now consists of me going to the gym three times a week and that will increase starting next week. Since I’m a night shift worker, it was hard for me to put away the late-night cravings of fast food. The greasy food has been replaced with protein and meal replacement shakes. I’ve tried getting microwavable meals, but those didn’t taste right. The meal replacement shakes are fulfilling, and they taste great also. In the process, I’ve discovered the great effects of probiotics also.
CurcuminPro® Total Health Meal Replacement
One of the things I’ve increased lately has been my protein intake. Before this, I was buying the small shakes that contain a good amount of protein. Those shakes were good but lacked the fiber that I was looking for in my diet. CurcuminPro® shakes contain 26-27 grams of protein, 26 vitamins and minerals, 6-7 grams of fiber and 12-13 grams of carbs depending on the flavor. The Total Health Meal Replacement shakes provide nutrition while supporting weight management, pain reduction, and joint, brain, heart and immune system health.
Since they use the highest grade of whey protein, it’s good for muscle recovery after an intense workout. They come in four flavors: chocolate, vanilla, coffee and mixed berry. Since I’m trying to lose more weight, usually I’m replacing two meals a day and my preferred flavor is vanilla. Some mix there’s with low-fat milk, but I prefer water. The best part of the powder is contains curcumin. Curcumin is great for pain, weight loss and inflammatory conditions.
KAV Encore® Shakes
If you’re looking for another brand of meal replacement shake, look no further than KAV Encore®. The tasty low-calorie, low-fat and low-sugar shakes packed with Omega-3 fatty acids that help with losing weight. The shakes provide nutrients that benefit sugar and cholesterol levels, including protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other essentials. KAV Encore shakes contain bioactive whey and milk protein, which is great for muscle recovery. KAV Encore is great for fat burning, but also help in gaining muscle in the process. Each shake provides nutrients that improve digestion, gut functions, your immune system, cardiovascular health, blood-sugar levels and blood pressure. Trust me, I need improvement in all those areas. They come in five flavors: chai, vanilla, matcha, chocolate and coffee.
Dr. Higa’s Original Pro EM1- Probiotics
Are you familiar with probiotics and how they work? Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of these as germs that cause diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. Dr. Higa’s liquid supplement contains live microorganisms for improved gastronomic health. To give this an amazing taste, it includes organic honey which is also good for immunity benefits. All you must do is add a tablespoon to a glass of water or juice to help clean out your system. Over time, you’ll lose bloating and gain sustained energy throughout the day. You will also see a difference as it benefits your skin and organ health.
