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.
GET THIN IN THE REAL WORLD

Label Reading Made Easy
- The amount of sugar
- The number of calories per serving

Low-Fat Versus Nonfat
Most nonfat products are pumped full of fast-digesting carbs to replace the fat: potato starch, corn starch, dextrins (a simple sugar), maltodextrins, polydextrose (another simple sugar), and gums, to name just a few. So, if you are chowing down on fat-free foods, you’re ingesting loads of sugar. And sugar makes you fat.
You might think you’re making a good food choice when you eat a product labeled “low-cal,” but in reality you’re often being tricked into buying some nasty additives and artificial sweeteners.
No Sugar Added
Foods that make this claim are usually sweetened with apple or white grape concentrate, which is no different from white sugar.
