As part of the new Nutrisystem SUCCESS plan I received some protein shakes and have been shaking my way to success this past week. I will admit that I was a bit skeptical about the protein shakes at first. The idea of a protein shake just didn’t seem so appetizing to me. Well, was I ever wrong! I received 4 flavors of shakes to try: Sweet Strawberry, Refreshing Coffee, Creamy Chocolate, and Smooth Vanilla. They are all delicious, but if I had to choose a favorite it would be Sweet Strawberry. It reminds me of the strawberry milk I loved as a child.
Each protein drink contains 15 grams of high-quality whey protein. It also has as much calcium as a glass of milk, which is great for someone like me who does not like milk. The protein drinks are very easy to prepare. Nutrisystem provided me with a cool shaker – it’s a plastic cup with a flip cap and has a neat little round whisk that you drop in to blend everything up. It takes just minutes to add 6 ounces of cold water and a cup of ice to the shaker. I usually just drop in 6 ice cubes and it works pretty well. Then add the protein powder and whisk ball, then shake away. Do you think all that shaking counts as exercise? Nutrisystem recommends the protein drinks as part of your daily breakfast, but I have found them to be a great pick-up in the afternoon.
This week I lost .50 pounds, taking me back to where I was before the holidays! It’s not a lot, but it feels good to be back to 198 pounds. That’s a total weight loss of 7 pounds for me.
