After exercising in the mornings; I make a fruit smoothie (1/2 banana, 3 small strawberries, 1/8 cup organic vanilla yogurt, 1/2 cup water and one scoop of whey protein powder) for rejuvenation. This powerful drink helps to get my day off with a super bang!
Use a Magic Bullet or Vita Mix to blend all ingredients.

That once upon a time regular routine, that was SUCCESSFUL, slipped away. TIME TO MAKE THE CHANGE! FOR MYSELF, this is going to involve starting my day with at least 32 oz of water, 2-3 cups of coffee, & a PROTEIN DRINK. Lunch will be light but healthy: example 2-3 eggs, another protein drink, and steamed veggies. Afternoon snack: possibly a rice cake or two with polinar all fruit jelly, & supper another protein drink, with home made veggie stew. 224
Of course this is going to involve WITHDRAW! I call this the 10 day BOOT CAMP! HA! IT CAN BE WICKED, BUT IF ONE IS TRULY READY, TEMPTATION CAN BE FOUGHT...FAITH, PRAYER, THINKING POSITIVE, & KNOWING FULL GOOD AND WELL, THAT DETERMINATION PAYS OFF!!! Cut out the soda, the junk sweets, no meal skips!!
I start out with at least 20grams of protein in the morning about a half hour after wakeing up. Throughout the day I eat lots of protein in fish, chicken, and nectar sweets protein drink along with my vegetables. I try to get at least 100grams of protein a day, this keeps me much more satisfied, plus increases my energy. I'me not as hungry either when I have extra protein. 334
I've also been without anykind of wheat product for over a month now, I really helps to control hunger because wheat actually spikes your blood sugar. I've noticed since I've gone off wheat my blood pressure has gotten back to normal. 100 Yea! I think this is something I can live with.
