Easy Breakfast Smoothies for Weight Loss

Easy Breakfast Smoothies for Weight Loss

So you are looking for an easy breakfast smoothie for weight loss that you can whip up in minutes? You’ve been told your whole life that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but you’ve probably received mixed messages about just what this meal should entail over the years. The food pyramid somehow led to a childhood obesity epidemic, and people today still have a strange misconception that eating processed carbohydrates loaded with refined sugars such as cereal and toast with jelly is a nutritious way to start the day.

Fortunately, science is far ahead of the USDA, and 180 Nutrition has dozens of recipes including breakfast smoothies that can help with your weight loss plans and promoting general good health using our Protein Superfood Formulas.

Why 180 Smoothies?

The 180 Protein Superfood formula comprises 11 natural ingredients grounded into a fine powder with protein isolated from either whey (wpi) or peas in the vegan version. The resulting mixture contains proteins, fibers and fats essential to maintaining a healthy body weight, help digestive function and prevents bloating and constipation. Available in coconut or chocolate flavours, the Superfood formula can be blended into smoothies or cooked into baked goods. Best of all, the 180 Protein Superfood has no gluten and none of the chemicals that you’ll find in other protein supplements; all of our ingredients come from natural ingredients you’ve heard of and can pronounce.

Easy Breakfast Smoothies for Weight Loss

Banana Berry Protein: A potassium rich way to start the day, just add berries, water and the coconut Superfood formula.

Nourish Me Breakfast Smoothie: Blend our chocolate Superfood formula with avocado, yogurt and berries for a hearty breakfast that’ll keep you full until lunch time. Add almond or coconut milk for a creamier taste.

Ginger Snap Cookie Smoothie: Yes, this smoothie does taste like a gingersnap cookie, and it rightfully deserves a spot on a list of easy breakfast smoothies for weight loss. Mangoes, ginger, walnuts, cinnamon and two scoops of coconut Superfood powder blended with coconut water and a few other ingredients go into making this sweet smoothie the perfect solution for someone who always wakes up with a sweet tooth.

Green Cleaning Smoothie: Fresh mint and parsley leaves add a bittersweet tang to vitamin rich celery, spinach and kale when combined with coconut Superfood powder and liquids. This smoothie will set your digestive tract to peak performance for the day while giving you a flood of natural plant energy to stay focused on the tasks at hand.

High Protein Breakfast Smoothie: Whether you’re training for a championship fight or just trying to lose weight by incorporating more protein into your diet, this tincture of two or three heaping spoonfuls of Superfood plus a raw egg, yogurt and berries of your choice will kick your metabolism into high gear.

Take a look around our website for more information about the science behind the 180 Superfood formula and dozens of other recipes for healthy smoothies and baked treats!

What To Eat When On A Detox

Detox Foods List

By Guy Lawrence

If you follow our Facebook page, you may know that I am on an 8-10 week detox. I have a parasite that’s killed all my good bacteria, and has essentially affected my feng shui in the gut!

I am taking Metagenics supplements too, but these have been prescribed to me for a direct role related to my gut.

Why is this post relevant to you?

If you fancy implementing a clean eating plan for a few weeks, then the foods I’ve listed below will do the trick nicely.

For those of you that follow my blog, you’re probably aware I can’t do fluffy and nice to well, as I need to say it as it is. So if you think detoxing is buying some kind of tea from the chemist, or cutting out the potato chips for a limited time whilst ‘detoxing’, I apologise in advance. My purpose is honestly to educate and inspire, not to intimidate and throw it in the all too hard basket. But if you want the sugar coated topping without the real deal, buy a copy of a glossy magazine like No Idea.

One step at a time

For some just stopping alcohol for a month and having a cup of lemon tea is detoxing. Simply cutting out sugar or stopping that 3pm cookie fix is detoxing too. Whilst these are all fantastic and are steps in the right direction, I think it’s healthy to understand why you are doing it and the choices you are making. And if that’s where you need to start then go for it! Just don’t fall back to old ways after a week.

I feel I’ve surrounded myself with the best in the health business, and I am being guided all the way through my detox by Naturopath Tania Flack. So if you are looking to go the whole nine yards with a detox, I suggest you check out a local Naturopath in your area and be guided the right way too.

If not and you just fancy cleaning up your diet, then following my eating guidelines below will certainly help a great deal!

The detox foods I eat

Detox foodsTo make life easy I’ve grouped them into macronutrients; Protein, fat and carbs. I will combine all these foods to the best of my ability. I’m no Jamie Oliver, but I enjoy the challenge of the detox to make me think more creatively when it comes to what I can do with food.

Pic right: The difference between my creativity & Healthy Playful Living’s creativity whilst making detox friendly foods.

Main Source Of Animal Proteins

I will be having a palm size portion of these 1-2 times a day.

  • Fish
  • Grass fed beef
  • Chicken
  • Lamb
  • Eggs (3 = 1 serve for me)

I will avoid eating:

  • Processed meats
  • Sausages
  • Pork
  • Bacon
  • Dairy – I only have limited dairy usually which is cream in my coffee, a little cheese in my omelette, butter & the grass fed WPI whey protein in the 180 Protein Superfood. I don’t drink milk. But all these are off limits for me for 8 weeks.

Main Source Of Plant Proteins

I will avoid eating:

  • Soy
  • Tofu
  • Tempeh

Main Source Of Fats

Essentially most fats from their raw natural sources

  • Coconut Oil (Will do all my cooking with this too)
  • Coconut milk & cream
  • Egg yolk
  • Olive oil (cold only)
  • Macadamia oil
  • Avocados & avocado oil
  • Liquid Metagenics Fish Oil
  • Fats from 180 Protein Superfood Vegan
  • Saturated fat from grass fed meat

I will avoid eating:

  • All fats in 95% of supermarket products (usually hydrogenated). This is a no-brainer and should be a priority whether you are on a detox or not! If you want to learn more about this, read David Gillespie’s book Toxic Oil. It’s a must!
  • Homogenised fats. i.e found in most full cream milk & chocolate. I avoid these anyway.
  • Butter & cream :( I Love my butter & cream, but it’s gone for 8 weeks due to the dairy free protocol. Margarine isn’t an option, & if it’s in your fridge go and throw it in the bin right now!

Main Source Of Carbohydrates

  • Green vegetables – Combination of cooked & raw with most meals
  • Coloured vegetables - Combination of cooked & raw with most meals
  • Sweet potato – I’ll have this after heavy exercise sessions
  • Pumpkin - I’ll have this after heavy exercise sessions
  • Quinoa - I’ll have this after heavy exercise sessions
  • Some legumes

Fruits I will eat:

  • Berries
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Avocado – Knowledge is knowing it’s a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad :)

I will avoid eating:

  • All bread
  • Grains (unless listed)
  • All flour & pastries
  • Sugar (No-brainer)
  • White potato
  • Essentially 95% of supermarket products (Again, whether you are on a detox or not you should seriously consider these things)

Fruits:

  • I’ll avoid all other fruits except those listed above for the duration

So there you have it in a nutshell. I understand that I haven’t gone microscopic with the foods, but you get the idea. Feel free to share any recipes you have with me!

To make myself accountable, I am tracking my meals & progress over on:

Top Protein Powders for Optimum Health

top protein powders

By 180 Nutrition

Protein powders are a great way to add extra protein to your diet. They’re ideal for bodybuilders, athletes and people who just want to optimise their health.

Because they’re pure concentrated protein, these convenient powders make it easy to get additional protein without eating an enormous amount of extra food. Here are some of the top protein powders and how they can benefit you.

Egg Protein

This protein powder is isolated from egg whites to provide you with the food’s most valuable essence. Many people even consider egg protein powders to be the best available. This is because eggs are the most complete form of protein available, providing all of the essential amino acids. Egg protein is fat free and contains numerous vitamins and minerals.

Rice Protein

Rice protein is one of the few protein powders suitable for vegans (pea protein is an alternative). Although it’s not a complete protein, it provide almost all of the essential amino acids. In addition, it’s an excellent source of B vitamins, which help sustain energy, support a healthy metabolism and maintain the nervous system. Their mild flavor makes them ideal for adding to protein shakes and homemade meal replacement bars.

Soy Protein

Soy protein powders are very popular among vegans and people who believe in the health benefits of soy. Like rice protein, soy is not a complete protein, but it is still highly nutritious. It contains no fat, few carbohydrates and plenty of vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, many people find its flavor, which is reminiscent of raw beans, to be overbearing. This makes it more suitable for use in things that are heavily-flavored.

Whey Protein

Whey protein is easily the most popular protein powder on the market. It’s suitable for ovo-lacto vegetarians, is a complete protein and provides an abundance of nutrition. Because whey is a by-product of dairy processing and is produced in large quantities, these protein powders are very affordable. Furthermore, whey’s chemical structure makes it very easy to digest. Many people find that whey protein has the most favorable taste out of all the available protein powders. Use it in shakes, meal replacement bars, or even in meals and desserts. Whey protein isolate (WPI) is the purest form of Whey protein as it contains little to no fat, lactose, carbohydrates or cholesterol. At 180 Nutrition we use Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate as we believe that it is by far the top protein powder for optimum health.

Protein Supplements

protein supplements

Once strictly the domain of professional body builders, protein supplements are now growing in popularity for people of all athletic ability.

However, it is important to learn more about the purpose of protein supplements, how to use them and what to look for on product labels to ensure product quality and freshness.

About Protein Supplements

Protein supplements come in three different forms – soy, casein and whey. The most common type of protein supplement is whey since it is a milk protein that is water-soluble and is a complete protein. This means that whey contains all nine amino acids that humans need to fill their dietary requirements.

While most people can get their daily protein needs through food such as chicken, dairy products, fish and meat, many people are discovering that protein supplements help boost their workout and maintain energy levels.

In addition, protein supplements can help increase muscle mass, fuel longer workouts, recover from a sports injury or are missing protein from a diet due to vegan or vegetarian dietary choices.

There are many different kinds of protein supplements available, including powders, shakes, pre-mixed drinks and bars.

Purchasing Protein Supplements

These days, it seems that protein supplements are available everywhere, from the specialty nutrition store to the corner drugstore. However, consumers should be cautious when purchasing protein supplement products since some are better than others are.

For one thing, consider the amount of protein that you need. Building a pound of muscle requires an additional 10-14 grams of protein daily. In addition, different sports or activities require different protein levels. Here is a general guide:

  • Recreational Sports
    Add 0.5 – 0.75 grams of protein per pound of body weight for most casual sports.
  • Competitive Sports
    When participating in a high-energy sporting event or prolonged activity, factor in 0.6 – 0.9 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
  • Teenagers
    Active teenagers should get an additional boost of 0.8 – 0.9 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
  • Bodybuilding Sports
    Those building muscle mass should get 0.7 – 0.9 grams of protein per pound of body weight.

Note that while this may seem like a large amount in some instances, the total number should factor in daily protein intake from food as well as protein products.

Protein Supplement Ingredients

Along with getting the right amount of protein, consumers should purchase products with natural ingredients instead of additives, sugar and chemicals. For example, look for whey protein isolate, flaxseed and other additions such as sunflower kernels, almond meal, sesame seeds, inactive brewer’s yeast, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, cocoa, coconut flour or shredded coconut and stevia.

Protein Supplement Nutritional Facts

Protein Supplement Nutritional FactsProtein supplement nutritional facts are often misunderstood with so many options available on the market today. In this article we’ll look at Whey Protein Supplements and it’s benefits and help you gain a better understanding of which product is right for you.

Protein supplements serve as a dietary source of amino acids. After exercise our body requires amino acids to help build the repair and maintenance of body tissues.

Consuming whey protein supplements offer the benefits of supplying high nutritional value and branched chain amino acids (BCAA). These amino acids are essential as they are part of the muscle protein. BCAA’s may assist in preserving muscle glycogen stores and also help reduce the amount of protein breakdown during/after exercise.

Whey protein supplements will generally fall into the following three categories. WPI (Whey protein isolate), WPC (whey protein concentrate) and whey protein blends (which is combination of the two). WPC supplements are generally the cheapest and have the highest levels of fat and lactose due to the milk solids that are included. Whey protein isolate powders have the most amount of protein per serving with very few carbohydrates, lactose and fat.

In short Grass-fed WPI (whey protein isolate) is the highest quality protein giving you the most protein per serve with the least amount of calories. This form of protein is ideal for both muscle building and fat loss and can assist as part of a healthy balanced diet. Hopefully by now your protein supplement nutritional facts are starting to make more sense and you will now be able to make the choice that is right for you.

At 180 Nutrition we use Grass-fed Whey Protein Isolate which comes from happy pasture fed cow together with the additional ingredients listed here.

The side effects of prescription drugs: It’s sink or swim.

Prevention_CureBy Guy Lawrence (Click image to enlarge)

A friend said to me the other day that when pharmaceutical companies name a new drug, they either put the letter X, Y or Z in the name… He said it now sounds scientific and complicated and it must be able to do wonderful things!

This was said in a tongue-in-cheek manner, but then I saw this picture (left) on FaceBook and it did make me wonder.

I recently read here that over 50% of US citizens are taking some form prescriptive drug, amazing!

Do you fit into this percentage? Could you be doing more to look after your health?

People complain that they are run down and often unwell, yet they never really look beyond quick fixes to resolve the underlying issue. I understand everyone’s circumstances are different, and pharmaceuticals can be of benefit in some cases… but where’s the line?

Naturopath Tania Flack wrote a great article, The future of Australian health care and the stats seems to show that we have a habit of only valuing our health once it’s gone.

Goldfish bowl: Sink or swim

There’s an analogy I often use during my health seminars… Think of a goldfish swimming around in it’s goldfish bowl (let’s name him ‘Spike’), and the water is dirty and Spike isn’t looking too great. In fact, Spike’s looking pretty limp and he’s just about getting by (know anyone like this?).

If Spike was yours, how would you treat him?

Goldfish BowlNo matter how much we treated Spike with whatever illness he’s developed, if we did not change the water I wouldn’t fancy his chances. He might kick on for a while longer from the treatment, but what about his quality of life?

Naturally we would want to take preventative measures. If Spike was really struggling we’d change the water and treat him at the same time. We could then stay on top of it and change the water once a week, feed him well and Spike would probably have a swimmingly good time in there.

I often get asked ‘what’s the key to good health’ like there’s a magical and mystical secret formula only the very few and privileged know of.

From working in the health & fitness industry there’s been a few common denominators that have stood out for me when it comes to great health. The main one is this:

Do the basics really well

Sexy I know! So what are the basics? Search the blog and I cover most of them. But here’s a few…

  • NO SUGAR!!! (This is a must, and cuts out most supermarket foods).
  • Cut out processed foods (Yes, breakfast cereals and tomato ketchup too) and avoid most white foods (flour, rice, pasta etc).
  • Avoid chemicals in food as much as possible… Yep, that means most bread is gone too (Because you’ve now cut out sugar, flour and preservatives/chemicals).
  • Check the ingredients of everything you buy. If you don’t recognise them, don’t eat it.
  • Eat more like your grandparents would have when they were young.
  • Support your local businesses like the butcher etc. instead of buying packaged processed low grade meats. Local veggie shop instead of raiding the long isles in the supermarkets! Fresh fish, fresh eggs, fresh is best.
  • Cook your own food from scratch! Actually get to know what you are eating. (Here’s a great recipe book by Sarah Wilson).
  • Eat veggies like they are going out of fashion (Yes even for breakfast if you have time).
  • Natural fats are your friends
  • Avoidlow fat normally means high sugar.
  • Don’t binge drink alcohol. In fact, don’t binge anything. If you want to treat yourself, earn it first. Keep it 80/20 minimum (I talk about the 80/20 rule in my eBook here).
  • Move and exercise daily.
  • Don’t take it all to seriously and laugh a lot. (Life’s to short!).
  • Sleep

I’ve probably missed a few things but you get the idea… Keep it simple.

Surely a little investment daily is required as our health is at stake? Quality food and some exercise far outweigh the cost of your health and medications that harbor side affects like the T-shirt cleverly points out… So if you are in Spikes shoes, is it sink or swim?

What one thing do you/don’t you do daily to keep your water clear? Would love to hear your thoughts…

From: Guy Lawrence, founder 180 Nutrition

We are very excited to be launching the new and improved 180 Natural Protein Superfood for you. As you know, we recently changed manufacturers and decided it was the perfect time to introduce our new formula.

180 Natural Protein Superfood New FormulaOur new formula is the result of our own research combined with your feedback about what would make 180 Natural Protein Superfood even better for you.

Our new formula has:

Here’s The New Ingredients

  • Chia Seeds

    Were originally farmed by the Aztecs over 3500 years ago. They have been ‘rediscovered’ and modern medicine has acknowledged Chia seeds as an excellent source of protein that are jam-packed with amino-acids, Omega-3 fatty acids and anti-oxidants. Check out the benefits of nuts and seeds here.

  • inactive brewers yeast

    Inactive Brewers Yeast

    Not to be confused with Bakers Yeast, Inactive Brewers Yeast is extremely rich in B-complex vitamins which support your body’s metabolism and energy production. The Amino Acids in inactive brewer’s yeast are essential to support the building and repair of tissues, bones, muscles and cartilage.

That’s all the new ingredients in 180, but I also wanted to let you know there was one recommendation that we refused to go with – even though our old manufacturer told us that “everyone else in the industry is going this way.”

Here’s what we refused to change

100% Grass Fed Whey

grass fed whey protein isolateUnlike most of our competitors, we stood our ground with a very loud ‘NO’ when it was suggested that we add Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) and milk powder to our product.

In keeping with our commitment to provide you with the highest quality 100% natural product we only use 100% Grass Fed Whey from happy cows that live outside, rather than feed-lot cattle that never move and are fed corn instead of grass (can’t say I’ve ever seen cows grazing in a corn-field before).

There are 3 very compelling reasons why we choose 100% grass fed whey to be used in our 180 Natural Protein Superfood – click here to read why.

We still guarantee your satisfaction

110% Money Back Guarantee180 Natural Protein Superfood is available now and still comes with our 110% Money Back Guarantee.

If you are not 100% satisfied for any reason with your purchase of 180 Natural Protein Superfood, keep the remainder of the product, contact us and we will arrange for a 110% refund. No questions, no hassles.

So place your order right now and get ready to experience what the Aztecs discovered over 3500 years ago.

3 reasons why we eat grass fed beef & use grass fed Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)

grass fed WPI whey protein isolate
By Guy Lawrence

Think of this for a moment… would it be fair to say that the better the quality of food we eat daily, the better the quality of our overall health? Common sense really.

Does it matter what the cow eats?

Does the same apply to the living food we end up eating? When taking a look at the cow, we can easily assume the better the quality of food they eat on a daily basis, then the better the quality of them? Yep… No brainer really and pretty hard to argue.

When you are consuming a food source derived from cattle, I’m sure you would agree that quality is a major factor. But before we start to look at the differences between grass fed WPI whey protein isolate and corn fed regular whey protein, let’s take a step back and look at the bigger picture. The first question that springs to my mind is:

Why are farmers feeding their cattle corn in the first place?

I remember growing up in school with my teacher telling me that cows ate grass. Maybe she got it wrong!

1. Watch this video

Below is a clip from the movie Food Inc. If you have not seen this movie I would highly recommend it. Just give yourself five minutes of your time and you will begin to build an image of the bigger picture and why we only use grass fed WPI Whey Protein Isolate at 180 Nutrition.
