SHAKE IN YOUR NUTRIENTS!
Jackie’s Famous Shake Recipe
- Blend a whey protein shake every morning adding the following: 1 handful of fresh or frozen spinach (the fruit cuts the strong green flavor), 1 cup of frozen mixed berries, the recommended daily dose of flaxseed oil, amino acid powder, water, and ice. This is packed with your allotted food before you even start your day!
- Microwave frozen broccoli (a cup) and gulp it down like a vitamin. Think of veggies as easy-to-eat fat burners.
- In order to lose one pound a week, you need to create a weekly caloric deficit of thirty five hundred calories, or five hundred fewer calories a day (500 X 7 days = 1 pound of weight loss per week). This means that by cutting out five hundred calories of unnecessary calories each day, or burning five hundred calories a day by exercising-or both-you’d be able to drop a pound or more a week. On average, you can eat fifteen to eighteen hundred calories a day to lose around two pounds a week, as long as you stay active.
I am confused about Jackie's own shake sold on the website. It has no protein....? Is this shake mix to be used in addition to a whey protein powder?
For those who keep asking, and i am not sure why since the info is on page 1
It is a PRE workout shake. On the show she says to take this BEFORE you workout, which she says is preferably first thing in the morning so you can get it out of the way and it is when your muscles are not tired. So this would also be a breakfast shake. So it is intended to be a Pre workout/breakfast shake.
The broccoli reference is NOT to put in the shake but as a side dish as an edible vitamin. I eat about 6 servings of many raw veggies throughout the day so I do not do this.
The ingredients are: 1 handful of fresh or frozen spinach, i prefer frozen 1 cup of frozen mixed berries without added sugar 5 gms of liquid flax seed oil 5 gms amino acid powder 8 ounces of water 9 cubes of ice
Berries have sugar, theres no way around that. I'm sure it will be fine, I used fresh strawberries today.
I have found a GREAT protein powder: Lifetime, Life's Basics Plant Protein/Unsweetened. It tastes great. I also get all my supplies for suppliments from Vitacost.com.....great prices and lots of information to read on all health subjects.
i have frozen berries but the sugar content said 8 or 9 grams of sugar, isnt that too much?? what should i use?? help!! Thanks!
Me too...I found my inner Warrior this week at Pilates. You go girl!! Keep it up Jackie. I am reading all the diet tips, exercise routines, etc.
As with any receipe it is important to know the best products to use for those receipes. Could you please advise what are the best products to use for your shake. There are so many Protein Powder, glutamin Powder, amino acids, and flax seed oils out there and it is very confuseing. What are the best products to use?
I hope Bravo keeps you on as long as you as you want to do this show. Its an inspiration to all of us who can't work out with you personally. I found my" Inner Warrior the other day and stayed with my workout which was on a very difficult day for me. You are great at what you do..thank you!
I've started using this formula, I went on line to find the supplements. There are many chain stores that supply vitamins and supplements that would have these things. Yep, L-Carnitine liquid form is there too! Btw, I LOVE this shake, it has amped up my workout and I'm not as sore afterwards!! thanks Jackie!
Jackie, Can you please let us know what Brands you recommend for the shake ingredients: Protein Powder, Glutamine Powder, BCAA Powder, L-Carnitine (liquid)???
I do not get the frozen broccoli reccommendatio. Is to be eaten with the shake in the morning? Ewww!!! Or put in the shake?
Jackie said she likes it as a pre-workout shake. I think it'd be best first thing in the morning, so you're setting yourself up for a healthy, nutritious day. Of course, the shake would still be great post-workout too.
Hello all! What is BCAA Powder? I've found L Carnitine in capsule form at the local health food store, but unfortunately they were unable to find (or know exactly what) BCAA powder is.... Thank you!
Jay Robb is excellent. You can go to his site and look at the nutrient content. I believe it is one that Jackie recommends too if not mistaken.
I did the exact same thing - the only thing I did not see added was water and/or ice. I left that out and drank the shake as is and it was delicious! ! Cutting out the sugar is the key to losing weight and getting cut. I can only hope to have your abs someday. LOVE YOU JACKIE
I think one is what I heard. Now, can anyone tell me when you are supposed to take this shake? I hear all kinds of answers. Pre or post workout? Breakfast?
I have all the ingredients and I am still confused. Is this pre or post workout? I have seen both answers here. It would seem with all the protein, it is good post for muscle recovery. But with all the other ingredients, it would seem that pre is best in order to maximize workout.
Who can answer?
Please read the COnsumer Reports study on the popular protein shakes. The one you mentioned is full of junk. The shakes I take have everything that Jackie specifies already IN them!
I have all the ingredients fo rthe shake and am on day 2 of making the shake. It is appoximately 300 calories. Which I thought was a lot since for the past 2 years I have only have the whey proteing shake alone with just water at 130 calories. But wow you feel so much better with all the other ingredients!! But it can be costly! However this is my breakfast every day!
GNC has everything you will need i looked each ingredient up on their website and it even supplies the prices for you!
Hi Jackie LOVE LOVE LOVE your show!! Wonering what your favorite PROTEIN POWDER is because there are so many out there... THANK YOU!!
I second that motion! I am interested in using fennel, but have no idea how to do so and that reciped sounded great! Especially because it was meant as a detox and low cal meal! What could be better?
Jackie, I would love to know what brand of protein powder you use in the shake.Thanks for sharing your recipe.I love the workouts that you do,and I love all the TV shows you have.Thanks so much. Lisa
Besides the shake, porkchop recipes, did Jackie say to add lemon juice to the water to help with fat loss -- came in in the middle of that show.
I have to watch what I eat as I am not only diabetic but also am preparing for open heart surgery (murmure) and kidneys that aren't functioning up to speed (delaying the heart surgery)-- neither the heart or the kidneys are byproducts of the diabetes just have the weight to account for that.
