My Old Mindset... Food is just wonderful. I feel we should EAT! So when I see 'meal replacements', I'm tuned off.
My New Thinking... We are not "replacing the meal"... we are still HAVING the Meal! A wonderful way to get what you need quick, easy, and delicious! It's a mindset that I now understand. So lets Eat, even if it's in a cup!
I used to eat... Yummy omelets packed with veggies, not too bad for you really, but about an hour after, lets just say I had some less-than-desired symptoms. Then about 2-4 hours after, I was a little "munchie" or "snacky". Not good when you want to limit snacks (increasing insulin production in your body, with me, pcos). Weightloss was slow, and not much increased energy.
Now I eat... A "JJ Virgin Breakfast Shake" (a link to article with free recipe). I use JJ Virgin's Shake/Smoothie Recipes a (link to pdf of recipes) and the results:
- Love the Taste!
- Don't feel like I skipped breakfast!
- FAST to make!
- Very Filling!
- Energy Afterward!
- Full until lunch, easy!
- Get the PFFV (Protein, Fat, Fiber, Veggies)!
- Melting away the pounds!
"Assembly" making the shake/smoothie...
UPDATE: April 2013: I do not use WHEY protein anymore because it's dairy. I use a vegan rice protein now.
