A key ingredient in my weight-loss: meal replacements

Looking for a simple diet plan that fits into your busy schedule and still gives you plenty of vitamins and nutrients to keep you going throughout the day?  Meal replacements may be the answer.

Cravers! John luvs these.

Meal replacements offer quick, easy and convenient options to replace your traditional meals.  For instance, instead of sitting down to a chicken sandwhich and fries for lunch, you might instead eat a meal replacement bar, which is low in calories, low in sugar, with all natural ingredients AND lots of vitamins and nutrients to sustain you throughout the day.  My fab trainer John Hall recommends a delicious meal replacement bar called  Cravers.  He’s a big fan of these.  In fact, he has partnered with ProGrade, which offers a complete line of multi-vitamins and supplements, some of which I take EVERYDAY to maintain optimal health.  By far, ProGrade offers some of the best stuff out there.


Just last year when I was 30 lbs heavier, I started taking a meal replacement shake called Nutrishake, made by Ardyss International.  They are also the makers of the

NutriShake! My fave!

very popular body magic (I’m a distributor, i luv the stuff).  Of course I had to let John give the shake his seal approval before I made it a staple in my diet and he did…

Anyway, so I drank the shake everyday for breakfast.  When I was on a very strict eating and exercise plan, I simply added water to two scoops of the shake in a 12 oz glass, stirred up and drank.  Total calories: 140 but the vitamins and nutrients are through the roof!  I credit this daily meal replacement routine (and regular exercise) with helping me lose the weight quickly.  I’m proud to say I’ve been able to keep the weight off!

These days, I make a delicious breakfast smoothie using the same meal replacement mix. I call it THE MO’TIVATOR! It’s a little higher in calories once you add all the stuff but it still comes in under 300.  I still drink it just about everyday for breakfast and sometimes for lunch too!  See my recipe below.

The MO #39;tivator


1/2 cup of crushed ice

1 cup of your favorite juice, milk or water (whatever you choose)

1/2 banana

3 – 4 strawberries (halved)

2 scoops of my all time favorite meal replacement protein mix called Nutrishake


1/2 TEASPOON of honey (you can also use all natural maple syrup if you are super health conscious)

3 shakes of ground cinammon

4 drops of essential peppermint oil (grab it from your fave health food store.  this gives your shake a great, refreshing and uplifting quality.  i luv it!)

1 heaping tablespoon of ground flaxseed (it has lots of Omega-3 and it’s great for your hair and nails AND promotes regularity)

Makes a tall 14 0z glass–plenty to fill you up all morning and share with the fam.  Try the MO”TIVATOR and tell me what you think…and don’t forget to share your fave meal replacement recipes with me!  ;)
