Protein, protein, protein

 Everyone is talking about protein shakes recently, want to know why? Because they are a great source when trying to reach your fitness goals! When I am training for a show I drink two protein shakes a day. I drink one in the morning right after cardio and one in the evening right after weights. Your body craves protein the most up to 30 minutes after your done working out so that is when I try to get mine in!

Since I am drinking more than one protein shake a day I want to make sure I am drinking one of the best! I have tried out a few different proteins but have come across one recently that I wanted to tell all of you about. Gnarly Protein is probably my favorite protein currently. And yes, it is gluten free (because I know I am going to get many of you asking that, ha)! Gnarly is grass fed New Zealand Whey Protein with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. 

Oh and did a mention it tasted good too?? Yay!

This company is actually based out of my home state, Utah! So if you live here like me you can pick yours up at Good Earth! For all you out of staters, you will have to shop online HERE! 

If you try it or have tried it let me know what you think!

Oh and there pre-work out is also awesome! That is what I am drinking in the first picture, yum!!


  1. Yay! I hate all that GM crap. I say no to GMO's :)

  2. I use Hydrowhey by gold standard. Will have to try!

  3. I alternate between this protein and Perfect Fit protein! You should give it a try!! Both are great, but I prefer to use Perfect Fit for baking! Have you tried the boost from Gnarly? I use the pre workout and am trying to decide if I should get the boost or not.

Fitness programs from Life Time offer you numerous ways to get in shape from personal training, group fitness classes, personal weight loss coaching and more. Getting a six pack may just be one of the most daunting tasks even for a savvy fitness buff. While trimming off the fats and making the muscle building lean can be easily achieved through constant exercise and regular visits at the gym, bagging a ripped body entails a whole lot of discipline and perseverance.
    Thank you for sharing this.

A percentage of the compelling fixings help up to support the vitality level for more workout sessions alongside higher sexual commute and remain. The outcomes with the wellbeing change could be seen with 2-3 weeks of beginning the course calendar of this recipe.

  9. Is your body making the most of all the protein you’re consuming?

    Let’s face it: No protein, no growth.

    And we’ve all been bombarded with the latest trends in protein powders, weight gainers, lean gainers, combined protein, plant protein, whey, and egg etc……and the list goes on and on.

    But one of the harsh realities I’ve learned from peak performance expert Wade Lightheart is this:

    Most of the protein individuals consume ends up in one of two places.

    One is your toilet bowl.

    And the second place is in a nice layer of sludge somewhere in your digestive tract.

    And that all adds up to one GIANT-SIZED WASTE OF MONEY AND EFFORT from all the food you’re eating — especially if you’re taking protein supplements.

    You’re absorbing and using only a tiny fraction of the nutrients you’re taking in.

    Enzymes digest your food, stimulate your brain, provide cellular energy, and repair all the cells, tissues and organs of your body.

    Enzymes are the sparks that make everything happen.

    AND HERE’S THE BAD NEWS: Our bodies have a LIMITED enzyme-producing capacity, which naturally declines as we age. (In fact, most individuals have only 30 percent of their enzyme potential by the time they are 40 years old!).

    Your body naturally produces over 3,000 different types of enzymes, yet our ONLY external source of enzymes comes from THE FOOD WE EAT.

    Digestive enzymes are found naturally in ALL food, whether it’s fruits, vegetables, or meats.

    However, most of the food we consume in our modern diets is completely devoid of enzymes, because of how we grow, prepare and transport it.


    In other words, all cooked food is deficient in digestive enzymes, leaving very little to break down your food.

    This means most of us are UNABLE to effectively digest the protein we eat.

    And that’s pretty shocking and scary when you think about it.

    But don’t be too alarmed, because some very bright scientist brains have thankfully figured out a solution:


    You see, it turns out that enzymes are perhaps the most overlooked component of digestive health.

    Not only are digestive enzymes required for the breakdown and digestion of food. But their benefits extend well beyond that too…

    World-renowned colon expert Dr. Hiromi Shinya suggests in his book “The Enzyme Factor”, that undigested protein — particularly from milk products, fast food and red meat — can become ‘food’ for “bad” bacteria.

    And these bad bacteria create all kinds of toxins that leak into the blood stream.

    Meanwhile Dr. Edward Howell, author of “Enzyme Nutrition”, has demonstrated conclusively that using digestive enzymes can improve digestion, regulate weight, and ease the symptoms of a variety of health conditions.


    If you take a look around, you’ll find a whole bunch of enzyme formulations being sold in the market. But they’re certainly not all created equal — especially when it comes to the enzyme that digests protein: PROTEASE.

    And there’s a big reason of this…

    Protease is the most expensive of the enzymes to make.

    And there are several kinds of protease enzymes.

    And while most formulations have high levels of amylase (digests carbohydrates), or lipase (digests fats), the protease (digests protein) tends to be LOW QUALITY and in low amounts with most formulations.

    And it’s called MASSZYMES: Masszymes digestive enzymes

    P.S. Did you know that taking a protease supplement can actually help reduce strength loss, and boost short-term strength recovery too when you train?

    And here’s where to go again to get your hands on Masszymes:
