Guess what? I started a new way of eating today! I'm excited to see the results and I will share my progress along the way.
Here's my plan:
1.) Take 7 BarleyLife® capsules.
2.) Breakfast: Eat bacon and eggs.
3.) Lunch: Drink a ProPeas®/fit'n fiber® shake.
4.) Take 7 BarleyLife® capsules.
5.) Dinner: Eat a low-carb meal or if short on time... drink another ProPeas/fit 'n fiber shake.
6.) Drink lots of water.
7.) Dessert: Eat one Low-Carb Cupcake. I mean, life isn't worth living without dessert!
Following is some background as to why I am taking AIM's BarleyLife® as well as ProPeas® and fit 'n fiber®.
My husband and I have taken BarleyLife® for over 12 years so I know very well what a wonderful supplement it is. BarleyLife's primary ingredient is young barley grass, which is an incredibly complete source of nutrition, containing a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, enzymes, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients. You can read how I believe BarleyLife® helped improve my vision here.
I also took BarleyLife® throughout the 9 months of my last pregnancy. Shortly after Brady was born, we began to supplement his breast milk with BarleyLife Xtra®. Five years later, Brady still loves BarleyLife Xtra® and drinks 4 to 6 cups daily. Since Brady is a very picky eater, we feel blessed that he is getting the nutrition his little body desperately needs. You can ready more about what we believe BarleyLife Xtra® has done for Brady here.
My husband and I have done much reading on the subject and believe that eating animal protein along with low-carb vegetables is the healthiest way to eat. We have eaten low-carb for many years and when done properly have been pleased with the results. Unfortunately, I am loathe to admit that I have cheated by eating too many sweets and too many high-carb foods. As a result, I have put on more pounds than I'm happy living with. In addition, my doctor recently informed me that I am borderline diabetic and need to change my diet. So it's back on the wagon I go!
In addition to taking BarleyLife® and eating strictly low-carb, I am taking AIM's new weight management products: ProPeas® and fit 'n fiber®. ProPeas® contains 12 grams of protein per serving and uses allergen-free, non-GMO pea protein as its protein source. AIM fit ’n fiber® contains 12 grams of total fiber per serving, including 10 grams of heart-healthy soluble fiber. The two products complement each other by decreasing the appetite, making you feel full longer, and boosting metabolism. Everything I need to succeed!
I am excited and will definitely keep you posted of my progress.
Thanks for reading!
