My favourite tracking app.
After over 26 years in the fitness industry I have seen food tracking programs come and go. My Fitness Pal is by far my favourite. It has a huge data base and is very user friendly. It also connects directly to the Withings scale and even has a built in social platform so you can see what your friends are doing. Best part is...it's FREE!
A great protein powder
OPTIMUM NUTRITION GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY
I bought Salted Caramel and the Mocha Cappuccino. The Mocha has quickly become my families go-to flavor. The consistency is light and easy on the stomach. I add a shot of espresso and it's perfect for my wake up shake or right before the gym. Salted Caramel is also delicious, but more sweet and a little thicker than Mocha, I usually have this flavor to satisfy my craving for sweets.
A great natural Protein Powder
Deisel -New Zealand Whey
These proteins were outstanding to say the least. I love that they are-
Lactose free - Gluten Free - All Natural
Aspartame Free - Non GMO
No MSG - Sweetened with Stevia
I did not have one complaint about any of the flavors. Each one was rich and unique, without tasting fake or overpowering.
Because they are all natural and sweetened with stevia, I wasn’t left with an upset stomach and bloating.
To say I am not a fan of these types of products would be a major understatement. They are basically pyramid schemes filled with a majority of people that do not have the level of nutrition education to validate them selling a product like this. I have seen too may "coaches" crop up in the industry selling this stuff as a means to an end financially. Here is my review on Isagenix and why you should avoid it...
My favourite Supplement Store in Fort McMurray
This is a personal choice based on the high level of knowledge from the owner Brad Malley and the great prices and sales they always have. The benefit of being associated with such a large company with great buying power. Who doesn't want to pay less for more nowadays? I love supporting good local people and Brad has been a Fort McMurryite for 31 years!
