My protein and fiber drink mix to burn fat

If you've read my Fat-Burning Kitchen ebook, then you know that one of the dozen or so tricks that I used during my 23-day cutting cycle was to use a special protein/fiber drink concoction during specific times of the day to control cravings, preserve lean muscle, and keep my metabolism high. 

Here's an excerpt from the book that describes this:

"When you're doing an accelerated fat burning cycle, protein and fiber are easily 2 of the most important things that you need adequate amounts. Both of them help you to keep hunger under control, and a high protein intake during the cutting cycle can help to prevent catabolism, so you don't lose lean muscle.

This was another of my secret weapons that I used each day... what I did was concoct my own protein/fiber drink mixes and have 1 drink each day at a time when I needed to control hunger but didn't want or didn't have time for a full meal. I either used these drinks in the afternoon on non-training days to keep satisfied or I used them at night to keep appetite under control and get an extra dose of fiber and protein."

When I wrote this section, I was at the time buying the protein and fiber ingredients separately and mixing them myself each day.  My good friend Jayson Hunter, who is head of R&D for Prograde Nutrition, told me to tell them what I was looking for and he could probably formulate something exactly like what I was looking for, but with an even better taste.

So I told Jayson that this was what I was looking for:

1.  A drink that has about 20-25 grams of protein per serving.
2.  This drink should also have at least 3-4 grams of fiber per serving
3.  And it should also be lightly sweetened with stevia (no artificial sweeteners!), and very little sugar, if any.

Well, over a year later, Jayson and Prograde just recently introduced the brand new Prograde Fusion, the exact type of protein/fiber drink that I was asking for.

PG Fusion contains a whopping 24 grams of protein per serving, 3 grams of fiber, and only 2 grams of sugar!  Only 145 calories total per serving, most of which comes from the protein!  And it tastes like a delicious sports drink but without all of the crappy added sugars that most sports drinks have.

These are the 2 main times when I think this drink is PERFECT:

1.  In the middle of the afternoon to hold off your appetite and cravings until dinner, but still give you an added jolt of protein and fiber to help keep your metabolism burning high.

2.  Late night, just when those late night cravings start to come on and you want to grab some junk food.  But instead, just grab this protein/fiber drink and your cravings will go away without doing any damage to your waist. 

Since this product was just released last week, Prograde is having a 10% off sale on the entire store to celebrate the release of this new product.  Give it a try and see what you think! 

Check out the new Fusion protein/fiber tasty drink here  (and save 10%)

This is probably my favorite new product and very handy to help quell those cravings at key times throughout the day...   And MUCH healthier than those crappy sugar-laden sports drinks!
