Hey gang! As you know Summer is almost here and for all of us that means the dreaded BIKINI SEASON is upon us! Though I pose in a lot of lingerie and bikinis I am truly not a fan of wearing a bikini in front of others and have my own body issues. What I needed earlier this year was a little supplemental help after I made the personal decision to get serious about exercising more frequently, eating more mindfully and drinking more water. The bikini photos accompanying this post were taken approximately three months after I started using Nutribuddy.
I use the word “mindful” a lot when I discuss nutrition, supplements and fitness because for me that’s what I need to be. Mindful of what I am putting into my body! For every right decision I make in eating or drinking healthy I find it makes the next choice even easier. It’s not a diet or a “detox”. I don’t believe in shocking the body that way. I believe in getting into the habit of eating “clean” MOST of the time. My rule is to eat and drink healthy 80% of the time and indulge the other 20%. What I loved about Nutribuddy was that taking the daily multivitamin every morning put me into a “mindful” state to start my day right and make good choices. It’s amazing how just a few simple changes can impact your routine!
To put it simply what I did was take one Nutribuddy multi-vitamin in the morning and take one Hunger Fix tablet around 30 mins before each meal with a FULL glass of water. Now I have to be honest…I am not a fan of “fat burners” per say (and that is not what the Hunger Fix tablets are). Over the years I’ve tried a few mild “fat burning supplements” and found they made my heart race and made me feel very uncomfortable. With the Hunger Fix tablets I found that taking just one tablet was enough to suppress my appetite a bit. I strongly suggest drinking a FULL glass of water (the bigger the better) before every meal whether you are taking the pills or not. It’s a great “mind trick” that tells your body it’s full so you eat less. I also suggest lots of small meals. Be constantly snacking on healthy things rather than eating three large meals and starving inbetween. This wreaks havoc on your metabolism!
The last product I reviewed for Nutribuddy is their yummy sculpted whey protein powder! I opted for vanilla as I found it mixes nicely with water if I’m in a hurry or mix it with your favorite type of milk and some fresh fruit for a smoothie! Another fun combo was adding smooth organic peanut butter and half of a banana to my usual unsweetened almond milk and vanilla Nutribuddy protein powder Mix. It’s perfect for your post-workout routine and will tide you over until your next meal.
