I consider myself a pro when it comes to protein shakes. Years ago, I began training for a marathon and the workouts were intense! In order to keep my training program at its peak, I needed something to give me extra energy and muscle-repairing nutrients. So I began drinking protein shakes each day. What a difference it made! Decades later, one of my secrets to living a vibrant, healthy life is having a protein shake on a regular basis. Even if you try to read the labels, it can be tough to navigate through the long list of unfamiliar ingredients.

Let me make it easy for you. It all starts with the type of protein. My favorite is whey, because it has branched-chain amino acids, which are the best building-blocks for re-building muscle and helping you burn fat. These cows forage on natural plants from the ocean and plain. So this means they eat a wide variety of plants which allows for a full spectrum of protein. Throughout my entire career, I've found that by far, the number one concern for women is belly fat. Around age 35, women start struggling with that dreaded muffin top because of the combination of having children, shifting hormones, and losing muscle mass.

Truly, one of the secrets to keeping off belly fat is adding high-quality protein to your diet And an easy way to do that? With every glass of the Kathy Smith Protein Shake you're giving your body nutrients to take control of your health. Exercise alone won't do it. Because one crucial piece of the puzzle is missing: The types of food you eat impacts your blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar levels rise or fall too dramatically or too frequently throughout the day, you get stuck in a sugar-craving cycle.

So you reach for a quick sugar boost…and start the cycle all over again! If you want to lose weight and belly fat, one of the things you need to do is balance your blood sugar. By limiting your intake of refined carbohydrates and adding a consistent intake of protein, you can step off the blood sugar roller coaster.

Consistent, small steps can make big changes. Since then, he has chosen to adhere to a vegan diet and seems to have adjusted well. One of the problems he had in the beginning was getting enough protein. To supplement his protein intake, I suggested he try some of the vegan protein powders.

Protein powders are a great way to supplement any diet. I use protein powders after all workouts. During strength training we are causing trauma or injury of the cellular proteins in muscle. This prompts cells to begin a cascade of events leading to muscle repair and growth. In order to help our muscles repair, we must give them proper nutrition, especially post workout. The best time for your post workout meal is minutes after exercise. For me, the most convenient way to feed my muscles within that short window of time is a protein shake.

Sunwarrior proteins are gluten free protein powders and are non-GMO. But what I really like is that they are also clean and completely free of solvents, radiation, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, artificial colors, soy, yeast, wheat, or added sugars. This plant based protein blend has a complete amino acid profile exceptionally high in Arginine, Lysine, Leucine, and branched chain amino acids.

Wow, I was impressed! Sunwarrior also carries a protein powder based on Brown Rice Protein. Brown rice protein powder contains all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot synthesize but still needs in order to produce all the muscle tissue, enzymes, and hormones we require to survive.

The difference between the two protein powders is this: Classic Protein is made from a sprouted brown rice. Classic Protein is hypoallergenic and gentle on digestion.

Warrior Blend is a synergistic combination of raw pea, cranberry, and hemp proteins with medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil.
