Finding the Best Shakes for Weight Loss

Utilising a protein shake as part of your efforts to slim down and get fit can have many important benefits. Diets that do not provide you with sufficient nutrients could be limiting the effectiveness of your workout efforts or keeping you from losing weight as effectively as possible.

Replacing the occasional meal with a nutritious and tasty shake can provide you with a way to reduce poor food choices without sacrificing the protein and other nutrients that will be needed to enjoy the best results from your workout routine and other fitness efforts.

With a wide range of shakes and meal replacement options that are available on the market, choosing the best among them can be an important concern. Shakes that lack quality nutrients, contain too many empty calories or that will not be able to provide you with the quantity of protein that your body will need to build lean muscle tissue as well as to optimise your weight loss efforts may not be worth the bother. Utilising a superior shake as part of your weight loss plan can help you to reach your health and fitness goals. More

Our Story in a Nutshell

(Jo Smith; Video Copyright)

Rewind Eight Years Ago…

Not sure about you but I found this whole health and wellness thing very confusing. How did eating ever get so complicated?

Here I was, a fully qualified fitness trainer working in a state of the art fitness centre at the UTS (University of Technology, Sydney), and the nutritional advice I had been taught was simply not adding up. I had come to the conclusion that the infamous food pyramid sucked, and wanted to get to the bottom of it all and find out what it takes for amazing health.

Whilst on my search for the truth I stumbled across a small charity that had been helping people with chronic disease (mainly cancer). A team of health professional ‘renegades’ had decided to get together and use nutrition and exercise (mainly resistance training) as their prescribed therapy. The results I saw were staggering and it quickly highlighted how powerful food and exercise can be if prescribed correctly.

It also highlighted how appalling the food industry is with packaged foods, processed cereals/ grains recommended as our staple diet. On top of that, trying to provide a protein supplement to help with recovery after exercise was near impossible because of all the chemicals, artificial flavourings, sweeteners etc. Misinformation was endless and quality food products I could trust were sparse. Something had to change!

With the concept of a protein superfood in place, I met Stu on a surf patrol at Coogee Beach in Sydney. With an equal passion for true health and fitness and 20 years of graphic design experience, we teamed up together and 180 Nutrition was born in March 2010.

Make delicious protein shakes

We recommend mixing 180 natural protein superfood with your favourite milk to make high protein shakes, or simply shake/stir and drink! Mix with natural yoghurt etc. Or you can make protein shakes as your favourite smoothies by simply adding some low GI fruit. You now have a high powered protein shake that is all natural with nothing artificial at all.

Our favourite method is to mix 180 in a blender. It’s here you can be creative and make your favourite smoothie. For instance, lets say you’re on a weight loss plan and you are eating a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. You could  add a little low GI fruit like a tablespoon of blueberries or some strawberries and substitute a meal with a delicious, all natural high protein shake in under a minute. This would also make a fantastic nutritional quick and easy breakfast.

Or if you are looking to gain lean muscle, and improve your recovery before your next workout, you would need to look at increasing your calorie, protein and carbohydrate intake. A simple way do this is by adding an extra tablespoon of 180, a banana, a raw egg, or something similar along these lines, depending on personal preferences and taste, to make convenient high protein shakes. By adding 180 to your daily diet you’ll be taking steps to improve your health and well being over time, as we know you’ll feel the difference.

Stir & Shake

The quickest method to take 180 is to simply add 2-4 tablespoons in your desired drink, if you are looking for a quick fix or make protein shakes on the go. We recommend using un-homogenised milk. If you are using any other milk substitutes like soy or something similar, always check the ingredients, because they usually contain a lot of sugar or sweeteners, like maltidextrose for example. This is something that you should really be aware of if you are conscious of your health.

Or if you’re on the go and want to make high protein shakes, the other simple method is to add it into a sports container, and simply shake and drink. We recommend mixing it at the time of consumption, as it is not like most protein powders. 180 will thicken over time because of it’s raw natural ingredients. This method is ideal if you’re short on time but value the foods you consume. We know you’ll feel the difference.

The power of protein: How to turn yourself from zero to hero.

The Power of Protein

By Guy Lawrence

If somebody asked you why do we need protein? In my line of work, it seems the common stigma is to eat copious amounts after workouts, and if your surname is not “gym”, why worry. But believe it or not there’s a bit more to it than that.

Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. For example, your hair and nails are mostly made of protein. More

Weight Loss & Meal Replacement

Weightloss

Confused about weight loss? We’re not surprised as the dietary information offered today is conflicting and confusing.

The supermarket shelves are littered with diet products and miracle weight loss shakes. Maintaining a healthy weight should be simple for everyone and we’ve created a resource section that offers real guidance that you can implement immediately.

side noteSide note: There are no shortcuts to success. Health is a lifestyle not a life sentence. If you are looking for a quick fix, then sorry, this information is not for you. But, if you are willing to be open-minded and try new things, we have a resource here that could help change your life forever – Guy

Before you Start… Is your body ready to lose weight?

This may seem like an unusual question but if your digestive system (your gut) isn’t healthy you will struggle to lose weight. An imbalance of gut bacteria arises from the use of antibiotics, lifestyle and bad food choices. Diet soda is a big culprit in destroying good bacteria due to the artificial sweeteners (you can read our thoughts on diet soda here). How can we fix this? Have your gut health checked with any good naturopath before you embark on your weight loss journey.

Our Naturopath Tania explains the importance of gut health here.
