Ken’s Boost Your Body Blueberry Milkshake!

Believe it or not, these “Diet” Milkshakes That Are Actually Great for Your Health and Tastebuds!

That’s right. Fitness over ’40s very own men’s physique competitors and multi contest winner Ken Elrod has concocted a healthy milkless milkshake. We realize that is a very confusing statement. After all, if there is no milk in it… (blank stare inserted here.)

While sticking to his protocol for men’s physique bodybuilding Ken tends to get creative in his food prep. Sometimes with some really good results. This one I wanted to share with you all.

This shake is thick, creamy, and delicious. He had me try it this morning and I almost didn’t give it back.

Ingredients:

1 Scoop Strawberry Dymatize ISO 100 protein (isolate protein)

1 Cup of Frozen Blueberries

12 pumps (12 oz.) of Egg whites International’s liquid egg whites

Directions: 

Place in a blender, Ninja, or Nutribullet for about 20 seconds and voila! Instant milkshake or at least you would think it was by the taste. Drink soon to keep it cold and from separating.

Macros: 

Egg whites 12 fl oz.
180 Calories, 3 carbs, 0 fat, 39 grams of protein

Strawberry Iso 100 Protein
1 scoop 110 Calories, 1 carb, 1 gram of fat, 25 grams of protein

Blueberries 1 cup frozen 79 Calories, 19 carbs, 1 gram of fat, 1 gram of protein

This totals out at:
369 Calories, 23 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fat, and 65 grams of protein!

The average milkshake?
Steak and shake = average 700 calories / 145 g carbs / 30g fat and only 18 protein

McDonalds = 560 calories / 91 g carbs / 16 g fat and only 12 g protein

Sonic 10oz. Milk Shake = 480 calories / 57 g carbs / 26 g fat / 6 g protein

The advantage of Ken’s version too is that there are many nutrients besides the normal macros that your body uses and benefits from.

Blueberries – Blueberries, though not classified as a “miracle food” sure are. They are naturally super high in antioxidants, they help to reduce DNA Damage, may help protect against aging, have shown benefit in fighting cancer, can protect from cholesterol and help support healthy blood pressure.

Egg Whites – Are one of the purest protein forms on the market (so long as you don’t happen to have an egg allergy). These are pasteurized so there is no risk of salmonella poisoning as there is with cracking open raw eggs. Frankly, it also tastes better and isn’t that weird slimy consistency. If you have never drunk egg whites before these taste almost like drinking skim milk.

Egg whites, of course, are a protein source but they also hold omegas, potassium, and riboflavin.

Egg whites International’s liquid egg whites which we have found in bulk are far cheaper than buying egg whites from the store in small cartons or even from Costco. They are pasteurized and can last in the fridge for up to 6 months. (not that we give them a chance around here.) www.eggwhitesint.com is our source, tell them Ken sent you if you happen to decide you would like them in your fridge too.

Dymatize Iso 100 – Was named supplement of the year for multiple years running by bodybuilding.com. It is gluten-free, fast-digesting, banned substance tested, and tastes great. It is sweetened with natural stevia so there are no artificial sweeteners.

So – you can now “have your shake and eat it too!”
Thanks,
Ken!

How to Get the Beach Body Everyone Wants

How to Get the Beach Body Everyone Wants

Summer sneaks up on us every single year and most of us, simply are not ready for it.

With its hot sun and warm breezes, we declare summer the new stepsister of New Year’s Eve. That’ right – It is time for Summer Resolutions! Decide what you want and go for it.

If you are like most people, feeling confident in a bathing suit is a challenge. We are here to make that challenge less daunting and show you how to reach your goals the right way.

Any time you decide you would like to make a change in your life it is incredibly helpful to have a clear idea of not only what you don’t want, but also exactly what you are aiming for. Visualize the perfect healthy version of you that you could be. Once you have that image clearly defined, it’s time to set the goals to get you there.

If you are looking to get the beach body that everyone wants – Look no further.

How to get beach ready:

Goal Step 1: Get Up and Move

Exercise is vital to health overall as well as for leaning down, sustaining, or building up. Body transformation requires motivation and stick-to-itiveness. Muscle doesn’t build overnight nor does fat shed. It takes time, but if you put in the work and just keep at it, it will happen. Working with a personal trainer who can set a workout plan for you and your body type and goals can help get you to your goals.

Goal Step 2: Hydrate

Water is vital for every cell in your body and when you are dieting and working out, even more so. It is recommended to drink a gallon of water per day over the course of the day

Goal Step 3: Get Your Diet Right

Summer is a great time to boost your nutrition. Hotter weather is a natural match for lighter meals. Fresh vegetables, lean meats, and wonderful side dishes along with refreshing beverages can satisfy your body while building and sustaining it; getting you lean and beach ready.

It may seem counter-intuitive thanks to our yo-yo diet culture here in America, but one of the biggest obstacles to obtaining and maintaining a proper weight is that we simply do not eat often enough. The standard 3 meals a day can actually cause your metabolism to slow down, especially if you are eating the wrong things. Eating the proper mix of protein and carbohydrates along with fruits and vegetables in the right portions 4-5 times a day will boost your metabolism and never leave you feeling hungry.

You do not have to starve yourself to lose or maintain weight.

No matter what your objective is, Superfit Foods is happy to help. We take the work out of eating healthy – trying to calculate your macros and decide what to eat and when, shopping, lugging groceries home, cooking, weighing out food – all of it takes up a great deal of time!

Why do it when you don’t have to?

Summer can be a tempting time

We want you to enjoy the barbecues and occasional beer – we just want you to look good while you’re doing it! Make sure to keep these tips handy to help you out this summer:

Summer Dieting Tip 1: If you are headed out to a social event where you know you are going to be tempted, either eat first or bring food with you. You may feel odd about that at first but we guarantee no one has ever held it against someone for sticking to their plan and getting in shape… mostly what you will get in response is the envy at your resolve.

Summer Dieting Tip 2: Cheat Meal. Allow yourself one cheat meal a week. You are human and dieting isn’t a punishment. Reward yourself for sticking to it and believing in yourself enough to achieve your dreams. Just one cheat meal a week can also work in your favor, confusing your body and actually ramping up your metabolism.

Making the decision to get in shape is a healthy choice for both mind and body. When you look good, you feel good!

 

Thanks for reading our blog. Wishing you a warm, wonderful transformative summer – See you at the beach!
