Getting RAW Fit for 2014

Posted by: Rhonda Price on Monday, February 17, 2014

We've had a number of inquiries on our Facebook page on ways to encorporate Raw Fit and Raw Meal into a new health and wellness routine.  Today we're bringing back this great article on Raw Fit as well as a link to our Step By Step guide to jump starting your journey to health and wellness!

 

 

 

As much as I have enjoyed making smoothies and baking with our Chocolate, Vanilla and Vanilla Spiced Chai flavors, I couldn’t wait until our newest protein rolled out. Raw Fit is a high protein powder specifically designed for people seeking to lose weight and burn fat while maintaining healthy blood sugar levels – which means its also diabetic-friendly with a low glycemic index. Best of all, it offers the same assurance of quality that health savvy consumers have come to expect, including that it is:

 

  • Raw

  • Vegan

  • USDA Certified Organic

  • Non-GMO Project Verified

  • Soy free, dairy free, gluten-free

 

If you’re trying to reduce the junk in your trunk, you have to reduce the junk in your supplements also, which is why there are no binders, fillers, or synthetic ingredients in Raw Fit. Instead, you get a superior protein source with clinically studied ingredients, including:

 

  • High protein for weight loss – 28 grams

  • Clinically studied Ashwagandha

  • 126 mcg of Chromium

  • Clinically studied Svetol® or green coffee bean extract

 

Did I get your attention with the last ingredient? You may have heard about the wonders of green coffee bean extract in the media or on The Dr. Oz Show, where experts talked about how it helps support weight loss efforts. Combined with the clinically proven ingredients in Raw Fit, the green coffee bean extract helps you burn fat, satisfy hunger and fight cravings.

 

I decided to try Raw Fit for myself, and made a lot of different smoothies with it. I added all kinds of different ingredients, depending on what fruits or veggies I felt I needed each day, including blueberries, strawberries, Romaine lettuce, celery, oranges and even a few flaxseeds. Finally I landed on this delicious smoothie that I dubbed “Tropical Bliss” and now it’s hard for me to drink it any other way. Here are the ingredients so you can try it yourself:

 

 

Raw Fit Tropical Smoothie

 

1 cup vanilla almond milk

1 organic banana

5-6 chunks of pineapple

1 scoop of one packet of Garden of Life RAW FIT

1 tsp. Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

A few ice cubes if you like it cold

 

 

Blend it all up and enjoy. It’s so smooth and filling that you might not even notice when it’s lunch time or you might skip lunch entirely because it’s so satisfying. Did I mention that although it’s a dieter’s best friend, you don’t have to be on a diet to enjoy it because it’s also useful for maintaining your weight. As any yo-yo dieters know, the real battle isn’t always losing the weight, but finding a way to keep it off for good!

 

 

After a few weeks of using Raw Fit, I can tell that it definitely reduces cravings, because I have passed up all kinds of tempting desserts lately and haven’t missed them one bit – even though a snide friend commented that “a little bit of ice cream won’t hurt you.” Maybe not. Nevertheless, I smiled and said I’d rather pass up all the sugar in the ice cream and know that I wouldn’t be wearing Ben and Jerry’s on my rear end the next day. And I have Raw Fit to thank for that!

Your recipe sounds delish! I've heard and read its best to avoid bananas when trying to lose weight.

I wanted to give a heads up on the brand of almond milk in the photo. If it has carrageenan in it, it may give you Irritable Bowel symptoms - yuck. It took me a couple years, unfortunately, to figure it out. I went off the Almond milk for a couple of weeks and the symptoms disappeared. I drank the "original" and I'm not sure if the vanilla has it in it as well...FYI...

I have been using Raw fit, perfect greens and superseed for7 months along with excersising I lost over 25lbs. I feel great and at 44 yrs old and 119lbs I have more energy than the 20 yr olds I work with. My doctor was concerned about my weight loss so i humored him and had extensive blood work. It's all perfect, never better in fact!
I only wish raw fit was available in Canada, I now have 3 friends that are ordering as well but because we order from USA it takes over 3 weeks to get and major shipping.
