Vicki’s Weight-Loss Protein Shake

It took me quite a while to figure out what was keeping me from losing weight. Dieting was not working at my age. When you go over 55 years of age you have to get creative.

But once I figured it out, I was finally able to lose weight even though I am in my retirement years now! You see, I found out that it is not enough to have a clean diet, cut back on carbs and exercise daily. As you get older, it gets tricky because we have poisoned our bodies with toxins and bad gut microbes. At some point it seemed like my body was fighting against me.

After realizing that I needed something to clean up the flora in my digestive system…. I started working on this smoothie. I tried Probiotics with little weight loss success. But when I started using the Dr. Formulated Prebiotic instead… Wow! It has really changed my health. And of course I made it in my favorite flavor… chocolate! I drink one of these each day. And then I drink at least a liter of water that day.

I have lost 14 lbs in the last 2 months by just adding this drink!

Because of the high fiber content… I drink plenty of water behind this… My favorite waters are the reverse osmosis waters like Aquafina and Walmart green top drinking water.

2 scoops of LIVfit Organic Plant Protein (no sweeteners added)

2 Tbsps LIVfit Organic Cacao Powder

1 cup  of Coconut or Almond Milk

1 TBSP Organic Acacia Fiber powder (Dr. Formulated PRE-biotic)

2 tsps Coconut Sugar (nectar from the Coconut bloom)

Shaker or Blender needed for blending this smoothie

Instructions:

Add all of the ingredients to the milk in the blender or smoothie cup.  Blend or shake.  Blend until smooth!

I like my shake chilled or on ICE and I use a straw… because it’s easier. But you don’t have to drink it that way, especially if you are in a hurry.
