Got Stuck Weight Despite Intermittent Fasting? This Morning Game-Changer Could Be For You

Got Stuck Weight Despite Intermittent Fasting? This Morning Game-Changer Could Be For You

Hey there, friends!

Have you been doing the Intermittent Fasting (IF) hustle and instead of watching pounds melt away, you're wondering why the darn scale is stuck? Or worse, heading in the wrong direction? Friend, I've been there. Instead of slimming down with IF, I found my weight creeping up. What gives, right?

Well, here's the skinny: IF can put your body under stress. And when your body feels stressed, it holds onto fat like a diva holds onto her designer purse. But like all problems, this one has a solution, too. You ready for it? It's breakfast.

Now, before you roll your eyes, hear me out. I was never the girl who craved a big breakfast. Like many of you, my mornings are a whirlwind of activity, and sometimes, breakfast just doesn't fit into the mix. But the thing is, breakfast is important. It kick-starts your metabolism and sets you up for the day. So, I thought to myself, "What if there's another way?" And that's how my gourmet protein coffee was born.

Stress, IF, and The Battle of the Bulge

Intermittent fasting isn't a diet; it's a pattern of eating and not eating. It can have fabulous benefits, like improving metabolic health and helping with weight loss. But it can also stress your body out. Your body reacts to this stress by producing more cortisol, our primary stress hormone. The higher your cortisol, the more your body clings to fat, especially in the belly area.

On top of this, if you're guzzling coffee on an empty stomach, you could be upping your body's acid production, causing discomfort and, over time, potentially causing more serious stomach issues. 

Introducing The Queen of breakfast: Gourmet Protein Coffee

So, how do we combat the stress from IF, especially if traditional breakfast doesn't float your boat? Let me introduce you to the gourmet protein coffee, my answer to this very question. It's perfect for the busy gal on the go, the one who prefers to skip breakfast, or those who are finding it hard to shake off those extra pounds.

Here's the scoop on this fabulous cup of joe:

Protein Perks: It's enriched with collagen protein, helping you start your day with essential proteins, ensuring you stay full longer and keep those muscles in tiptop shape.

Fat-tastic: Cashews are in the mix, giving you a healthy dose of fats that'll keep you full and help moderate that caffeine buzz.

Vitamins, Anyone?: You’re also getting a dose of essential nutrients from collagen and cashews, setting you up for a day full of wins.

Gut Love: If coffee sometimes upsets your stomach, you'll love this – collagen comes with amino acids that are great for your gut health!

Do remember, friends, this yummy blend isn't fasting-friendly because of the calories and nutrients in collagen and cashew, so it will interrupt a strict IF schedule.

Time for a Morning Makeover

Adding my gourmet protein coffee to your morning routine could be just the ticket to kick those stuck scales into gear. It's all about nourishing your body and reducing the stress of Intermittent Fasting to enjoy the body-loving benefits. 

But don't forget, everyone is unique. Your body might respond differently, and that's okay. If anything feels off, get some advice from a healthcare provider or dietitian. Because in the end, it's all about feeling fabulous, right? Exercise, managing stress, and sleeping well are all part of the picture.

So let's do this! Let's revolutionize our mornings with a gourmet protein coffee. Here's to glowing health, boundless energy, and a scale that's moving in the right direction!



The Inside Scoop on Our Protein Coffee

The Inside Scoop on Our Protein Coffee

Hey there, friends! Today, we're diving into the wonderful world of collagen - that fantastical protein that's all about keeping you gorgeous, strong, and vibrant. Plus, I'll be revealing why we've gone totally crazy for it in our coffee. Yes, you heard it right - collagen-infused coffee is the new kid on the block!

Let's talk collagen, friends. Think of it as the body's own super glue. It's the most abundant protein we've got going on in our bodies and comes packed with over 1,400 amino acids. These little guys team up to form a powerful triple helix structure, which gives collagen its power.

We've got different types of collagen strutting their stuff in our bodies, but the real stars of the show are Types I, II, and III. 

1. Type I Collagen:The tough guy of the bunch, it's all about giving structure to our skin, bones, tendons, and teeth.

2. Type II Collagen:The joint specialist, found mostly in our elastic cartilage, the secret behind our awesome dance moves.

3. Type III Collagen:The muscle man, always found flexing in our muscles, organs, and arteries.

So, why should we be loving collagen as much as our best-kept skincare secret or our favorite yoga class? Well, here's the lowdown.

  • Skin Health:Collagen is the ultimate skin whisperer, offering hydration and elasticity and helping you fight off those pesky wrinkles. 

  • Bone Health:Like the unseen superhero, collagen is giving structure to our bones, making them strong and steady.

  • Joint and Tendon Health: Collagen's elasticity supports the health of our joints, so we can keep doing those lunges and squats with ease.

  • Heart Health:Collagen is also a little love note to our heart, maintaining our blood vessels and heart's structural integrity and function.

But here's the deal: as we age, our bodies get a bit stingy with collagen production. This can lead to signs of aging (hello, wrinkles and sagging skin) and impact bone density and joint mobility. Don't worry, though - with a diet rich in vitamin C, copper, and proline-rich foods, we can give our collagen production a little boost.

Now, let's get to the million-dollar question: why did we create a protein coffee? In simple terms, it's all about bioavailability. That's a fancy way of saying how well a substance is absorbed and used by our bodies. And guess what? Collagen is a total rockstar in this department.

When you sip our collagen-infused coffee, your body efficiently absorbs and uses the collagen. So, not only are you getting your caffeine fix, but you're also packing in those health benefits - double win!

Understanding collagen's amazingness is your first step to appreciating why we're all about the collagen-infused coffee. It's about enjoying your daily pick-me-up while investing in your body's glow and well-being. As we say, every sip is a sip towards a more vibrant, radiant you. Here's to making every day a great skin (and hair, bones, joints...) day!
