Over the last two years I've learned a lot about nutrition, fitness, and finding a healthy balance. I'm not crazy about working out everyday nor do I feel guilty when I indulge in a treat every now and again. I'm always striving to be a better me.
Working out isn't an issue, but maintaining a healthy diet full of healthy fats, protein, and carbs isn't always the easiest.
I've recently hit this funk where I have been indulging a little too much and only working out 3 times a week instead of my usual 5. I don't know if it's this awfully hot weather that has caused this lack of motivation. I can tell that I've gained at least 1-2 pounds of body fat during this funk.
Getting a good amount of protein without going over on fats isn't very easy, that's why I LOVE protein powder. Protein Powder is low on carbs and fats but obviously very high in protein. Having a high protein diet makes me feel less hungry during the day and helps me fight food cravings.
It's been a week since I've been adding SlimQuick Pure Protein into my daily diet and boy have I noticed a difference.
SlimQuick Pure Protein tastes incredibly delicious and doesn't have that awful after taste that many proteins have. It provides 10 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per serving. It's made with BioPure Green TeaTM, a natural extract that helps speed up your metabolism. I also believe that this is the ingredient that gives me a little more energy than I normally have throughout the day (; It's been shown in a clinical study to help overweight women lose 3 times the weight versus dieting alone in just 3 weeks. I personally don't know whether or not I have lost any weight but I do know that my pants and skirts are fitting much more comfortably.
If you are finding yourself in a funk or are struggling with over-eating and not getting enough protein in your diet I suggest trying SlimQuick Pure Protein! It has definitely helped with my cravings and tastes more like a shake than a protein drink. Here's a $5 off coupon that's valid now through August 31, 2015.
