Strawberry Mousse

Welcome to the critically acclaimed world of Nectar™!  Gone are the days of low quality whey protein.  Gone are the days of those blah-tasting protein drinks that promise much but deliver little.  Nectar™, once-and-for-all, breaks the mold by combining Promina™, the highest quality Whey Protein Isolate ever developed, with a flavoring system that is so fruitilicious that you will never drink a different whey protein shake ever again.
If you like the refreshing taste of fruit juice, you’ll love Nectar™!  With its mouthwatering fruit juice flavors, Nectar™ is truly a protein drink you will look forward to drinking each and every day.  Whether it be Apple Ecstasy, Twisted Cherry, Caribbean Cooler, Strawberry Kiwi, Fuzzy Navel, Roadside Lemonade, Crystal Sky or Lemon Tea, Nectar™ will keep you coming back for more.
What’s more?  Well, we did something totally amazing by engineering Nectar™ to be so delicious that you can eat it right out of the container.  Imagine putting a protein powder in your mouth and it tasting like candy.  Imagine this protein powder having ZERO carbs and ZERO fat.  Stop imagining!  We’ve brought you Nectar™!

Next up in my bag o samples is Strawberry Mousse.  I’m going into this hoping for the best because I like a good strawberry drink.  But let’s face it — strawberry is hard to do sometimes.

Click Pack

Well, it’s here — Vanilla Latte Click!

To help celebrate, I have a Click Pack to give away.  It includes what’s pictured above — a canister of Vanilla Latte Click (which has 14 2-scoop servings) and a Click Blender Ball cup.  (Which is remarkably similar to the ones pictured in all of my reviews… o_O)

To enter, all you have to do is make a comment below with a post you’d like to see me do.  That’s it.  I’ll pick a winner on Tuesday, 4/6 at 9pm EDT using a random number generator.

Good luck!

That means I have a BMI of 29.9.

That’s “overweight” — not obese.

I think I was in Middle School last time that happened.

That is all.

Fake Doctor? OMG.

Okay.  Now, this frightens me.

How many of us, when looking for surgery, actually, you know, check out our surgeons?  Our PCPs?  Our GIs?  I know *I* never have.  Perhaps I should.

A drum had been banged for some time about a doctor running an after-care clinic for WLS surgery in Mexico, who, was not, in fact an actual doctor.  There was some proof, but many discredited the proof for one reason or another.  This is NOT the surgeon – this is the “doctor” that is in charge of the care AFTER the surgery.  He was in charge of pain management, wound care, drains, giving injections, etc.

Last night, another person stepped forward with the same claim — with pictures of the Mexican medical license.  When you put the number in the Mexican Licensing Board — a different name pops up.

Gruve Review – Day 5

On March 27, 2010, in Reviews, by Magnus

Okay.  Tons of questions here.  This is a dual post from both of us.  I’m sure you’ll be able to pick out the pieces from us (if not, whoa.  I mean, really?  Whoa.)

Ok, so this afternoon Andrea was talking about how she had just been sitting around the house doing nothing and that she was only at 1,300 calories burned for today. The thing that struck me was that her numbers are way higher than mine.  According to the Grve I only burn around 500 calories in a day, it just doesn’t seem right since my estimated RMR is 1,884.

RMR, or Resting Metabolic Rate, is the number of calories you burn each day just to keep your body functioning properly. So if I stayed in bed all day, not moving at all, I should burn almost 1,900 calories; the Gruve is saying that I only burned 500ish in a whole day.

Update: After looking around on the gruve website it looks like the number they show is the calories you burned in addition to your RMR.
