3 Simple Yet Effective Diet Tips! Try For One Week!

3 Simple Yet Effective Diet Tips! Try For One Week!
#1 - Time Your Protein Shake for Maximum Results
I first heard this simple, yet brilliant tip from Jim Wendler. I modified it a little bit for you.
If you want to lose fat, have a protein shake and some fiber before a meal. This will fill you up and help you avoid overeating at dinner or late at night.
The best recipe would be BioTrust Vanilla Cream whey protein blended in water with spinach and a few blueberries. (You can't taste the spinach, trust me!)
On the other hand, if you want to gain muscle, eat first and then have the protein shake (without fiber - use BioTrust Milk Chocolate mixed with milk and a tablespoon of almond butter). This gives you the extra calories you need for muscle building.
#2 - Replace Your Morning Juice with Protein
I'm shocked that so many people still drink orange juice (and other sources of sugary liquid calories). The July issue of Men's Health magazine reported that orange juice dramatically spikes blood glucose. This increases insulin - a fat storing hormone. NO GOOD!!
That one simple mistake is probably stopping your fat loss dead in its tracks.
Plus, the more sugar and carbohydrates you have at breakfast, the worse the rest of your daily meals will be. 
On the other hand, research shows that when you replace processed and sugary carbs at breakfast with more protein, you feel full longer all day. So you eat fewer calories and burn more belly fat.
Use the BioTrust whey-spinach-blueberry blender drink idea from above instead. Or blend up your favorite apple with the Vanilla Cream. Those are two brilliant and simple recipes for getting your protein and fiber fast.
#3 - Use This Secret Snack at Night
No, not ice cream. LOL.
Instead, one of the best snacks that support fat burning is pistachios. There's just 3 calories in each one, plus you probably burn a calorie trying to get those little suckers out of the shell.
That means you can have 50 pistachios for about 150 calories. Pretty good snacking.
On the other hand, I stumbled across a terrible new so-called healthy snack food last week that you MUST avoid. 
They are called Blue Diamond Almond Chips and pack 140 calories in just 14 chips. Plus, most of those calories are from the #1 WORST ingredient you must avoid when eating at night.
Thanks and you guys have a GREAT Wednesday! 
Remember, each day do ONE thing to move your closer towards your goals!
