Dear mama friends,
If you’re like me, you could eat an entire house full of treats around this time of year. It’s almost like my appetite just goes out of control when the holiday season starts rolling around. Being that Halloween candy is stalking me around my house, I’m already starting to dread Thanksgiving and Christmas – because of my insane desire for sweets around those times! To help boost both my morale and my healthy eating plan, the kind folks (Hey Kelsey!) at IdealShape sent me some products to help keep me in line!
When I first opened the box from Kelsey at IdealShape, I’ll admit I wasn’t as sold as I wanted to be. Protein powder in the past had just always tasted.. well, BLAH. Gritty and grainy, I would have to choke it down and pray it worked for the next 2 hours. Needless to say, I was hesitant to start the IdealLean Protein Shake for Women, but honey child….
This stuff is AMAZING. That’s not just a kind product review either. Dead serious!
I began to use it daily as a meal replacement first thing in the morning and it was amazing how much better I felt! PLUS One serving is 80 calories, has 20 Grams of Protein and has 0 grams of added sugars. It’s 100% pure Whey Protein Isolate and doesn’t have all the added junk. It helped to curb my appetite not to snack on the girls leftovers at lunch or gummy snacks in the afternoons. I truly felt a sense of “fullness” and not that overwhelming “stuffed” feeling other proteins had left me with. The product that I am currently using is the French Vanilla Protein Powder and it tastes a lot like a vanilla cupcake (no joke). It’s smooth and not too thick or thin, but I tend to add ice and mix it in my blender to make it more of a smoothie-type drink.
You can mix it in a shaker bottle or blender with 8oz liquids (water, juice, milk, etc). Occasionally I will use Almond Milk (Vanilla sweetened) or a banana to change the flavor and consistency up, but each time it always does the trick and helps me get through the day! I highly recommend this product as well as the entire IdealShape line. Not only do they have shakes and powdered protein, but they have meal replacement bars and weight loss plans. You can sign up for one of their Weight Loss Challenges that can last anywhere from 30, 60 or 90 days in length and so far, everyone that I personally know who has tried this has lost weight and feels better overall.
If you’re looking for a great weight loss and meal replacement product, I cannot recommend IdealShape more! Check them out HERE and take advantage of their sample sales that are currently running! And if you purchase, let me know some of your favorite recipes you come up with so I can “doctor up” my breakfast shakes!
Happy Monday, folks!
