While taking the kids out for treats this Halloween, I have a treat for you: Life Shotz.
While I was being interviewed by an author named Sally Shields, for her upcoming health book, "Naturally Thin or Disciplined" she introduced me to an "anti-aging, energy, anti-oxidant protection powder."
I have never been one for pills, shakes or supplements but I had recently had a baby and had been waking up 4 times a night. I also gave up coffee because it started to burn my stomach. English Breakfast Tea was just not cutting it for me, so I decided to try Life Shotz. It is a powder you put into a large glass of water to drink with your normal healthy breakfast. The ingredients consist of vitamins and anti-oxidants. I know from all my health studies and certifications how good all of these are for you, and since I have a thyroid condition I had studied B vitamins for energy metabolism and circulation. I checked with my doctor to see if a) I was right that this was a healthy product, not a gimmick; and b) that it was OK to take while nursing the baby. He gave the all clear.
I tried it for a few weeks and I felt better hydrated and energized at 3pm, which is normally my afternoon groggy time after being up much of the night. It fueled me through my fitness DVD shoots, 4 mile runs, instructing my Cardio-Sculpt classes and working with my personal training clients. I love knowing the extra vitamins and antioxidants are being added to my personal-trainer-health-nut diet.
So my treat to you this Halloween is your own free sample
If you agree with me, maybe you'll even chose to give your loved ones the gift of health for the winter holidays!Fitness - Fit it in!
