Top 5 Reasons to Choose FitSMART Shakes

During the summer, it can be easy to overindulge. With travelling, barbeques and family gatherings, those treats can add up to extra pounds on the scale. One way to counter this is to replace one meal per day with a nutritious protein shake. That said, not all protein shakes are created equal so here are 5 reasons why FitSMART is the smart choice.

  1. Each serving of FitSMART Shake has 10 grams of fibre! That is a third of your daily recommended dosage of fibre in one delicious shake. Fibre aids with weight loss because it fills you up, balances blood sugar and even flushes calories out of your system. Research shows that 1 gram of fibre eliminates 7 calories. That means that if you consume the recommended 35 grams of fibre per day, you will not absorb 245 calories!
  2. Each serving of FitSMART Shake delivers 20 grams of highly bioavailable protein. Protein plays a crucial role in protecting and building lean muscle mass during weight loss. It actually allows you to target body fat while retaining lean muscle. Like fibre, protein also helps you to feel fuller for longer.
  3. FitSMART shakes are available in a VEGAN formula. The vegan blend of protein mixes well and tastes great unlike many vegan proteins on the market. It is also soy-free, grain-free and GMO-free making it a smart choice for not only vegans and vegetarians but those following a paleo lifestyle or avoiding soy.
  4. FitSMART is the perfect choice for breakfast. It contains as much fibre as 10 cups of cornflakes and as much protein as 3 whole eggs! It is also a great post workout shake or afterschool snack. Why not beat the heat with protein popsicles or turn your morning oatmeal into a superfood? There are so many ways to incorporate FitSMART into your healthy diet.
  5. The fibre found in FitSMART shakes acts as a prebiotic. Prebiotics stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli in the gut to improve digestion and boost immunity.
