It's vitally important that your body is loaded with supplies of protein and necessary minerals to fill you with vitality and promote good health. Here's how to make the Weight Loss Shake that will help you lose weight and stay healthy in the process.
In a blender, combine the following:
10-12 ounces of distilled water Experiment with the amount of water. It's a matter of taste, and since water has no calories you're able to pick the amount that you want.
1-2 tablespoons of natural, non-pasteurized apple cider vinegar
Pat recommends the natural apple cider vinegar distributed by Bragg. Vinegar is very important because it aids digestion. This is especially beneficial for older people who have decreased hydrochloric acid in their stomachs. Older people should also consider Lindberg Complete Digestant. Since vinegar affects the taste of this shake, consider taking it separately.
1 tablespoon Lindberg Flax Oil
This is a great source of omega-3s and is important for cardiovascular health.
Lindberg Protein Blend
This is an all-natural, five-protein blend of whey protein concentrate, milk and egg white. It provides fast- and slow-release proteins to keep you satisfied for hours.
1 teaspoon of Fitness Labs L-Glutamine Powder
This tasteless, white powder is important to muscle recovery, especially after strenuous workouts. In addition, glutamine is important for growth hormone and immune health. Glutamine is a precursor to glutathione, which is considered a master antioxidant. This is a great weapon against the ravages of aging.
1 teaspoon of Lindberg MSM Powder
This natural source of sulfur has tremendous benefits. According to Judy Lindberg McFarland, an expert on vitamins and natural foods, sulfur is necessary for healing and repair of most tissues in the body, especially our skin. Sulfur slows down the aging process. It's called nature's beauty mineral because sulfur helps keep hair glossy and smooth, the complexion clear and youthful, and the nails strong. It is also excellent for joint health. Since MSM has a slightly bitter taste, you may want to take it separately from your shake or take it in capsule form.
6-8 frozen strawberries
Strawberries are low in calories and rich in antioxidants.They help defend our systems against free-radical damage and disease. They also make your shake taste great!
1/4 cup blueberries
Blueberries are delicious and a powerful source of antioxidants. They help protect us from cancer and age-related illnesses.
1/2 banana - optional
Bananas are a good source of potassium and flavor.
1 packet non-caloric sweetener
Use Sweet'N Low, Splenda or Stevia
If desired, add a few ice cubes and blend until smooth and frothy.
This is the recipe for a medium sized male or large woman. For smaller body frames and appetites, reduce the quantities of each ingredient slightly.
The Weight Loss Shake is very filling! That's the idea, so drink it all. You'll feel full and satisfied so temptations to overeat are minimized. That's the power of protein and healthy carbohydrates.
