"EnergyFirst changed my life."
After open heart surgery and a stroke in 1996, I have been very blessed with vibrant health and energy for the last 12 years, which I attribute to my balanced nutrition program. A lot of what I know about energizing, healthy nutrition I learned from a wonderful company called EnergyFirst. Because of the significant impact EnergyFirst has had on my life, I am taking the opportunity in this letter to introduce their program and product to you.
EnergyFirst is a company dedicated to providing, direct to the consumer, cutting edge nutrition education and top quality 100% natural nutritional supplements.
The EnergyFirst Program, founded on the latest biochemistry research, provides a simple, balanced, and health–enhancing approach to minimizing blood sugar and insulin release, through the correct balance of lean protein, good fats, and unprocessed carbohydrates, which results in the following benefits: increased fat metabolism, increased energy, improved mental clarity, no more hunger and cravings, and reduced risk of diabetes type 2, heart disease, cancer, and stroke.
At the recommendation of EnergyFirst, six years ago I began doing two simple things: drinking 10 glasses of pure water each day and drinking The EnergyFirst Shake for breakfast every morning. My life has never been the same. These two simple things gave me more energy than I could have imagined, lowered my cholesterol and triglycerides to very low risk levels, and helped me lose (and keep off to this day!) 20lbs of body fat.
What is The EnergyFirst Shake?
I was first introduced to The EnergyFirst Shake in 1998 when EnergyFirst attended one of my conferences. I drank a shake in the morning of the conference instead of my usual breakfast of coffee and a bagel, and what I experienced surprised me. My energy was high all morning–I didn’t experience my usual mid–morning energy lags–and I didn’t experience my regular hunger or cravings. And it tasted great, much better than some of the other energy shakes I had tried over the years. This made me very curious. What I discovered was that the EnergyFirst Shake was a balanced blend of the highest quality lean protein (100% whey protein isolate), good fats/oils (containing essential fatty acids omega 3 and 6), and high fiber fruit. The reason why I experienced these results was because the combination of protein, good fats, and high fiber fruit kept my blood sugar stable and minimized the release of excess insulin. This prevented my usual blood sugar drops which usually cause hunger and cravings and low energy.
The EnergyFirst Shake is 100% natural, and uses only the purest, highest quality ingredients, something you cannot find at a GNC or local health food store. Much of what you find on the shelves contains artificial sweeteners, cheap fillers, and low grade, poor tasting protein powder. I was so happy with the results I achieved using the EnergyFirst Shake, that I introduced it to my whole family, who still continue to drink it for breakfast to this very day!
The basic recipe that I use to make my EnergyFirst Shake is:
- 1 1/2 cups of cold water or non–fat milk
- 2 scoops of EnergyFirst 100% Whey Isolate (in Vanilla or Chocolate)
- 1 tablespoon of EnergyFirst Omega Oil Blend or Omega Seed Mix
- 1 tablespoon of EnergyFirst Greenergy
- 1/2 cup of fruit (apples or berries are perfect)
My favorite shake is Vanilla Apple Cinnamon. My wife’s is Chocolate Banana. The combinations of flavors are only limited by your imagination! Here’s some information about the EnergyFirst products I use in my shake:
EnergyFirst 100% Whey Isolate Protein Powder is the purest, 100% natural, most absorbable form of protein available today. It helps stabilize your blood sugar, increases your body’s metabolism of fat, and provides your body with essential amino acids. It contains no fillers or artificial sweeteners or flavors. It is 100% lactose free and is sweetened naturally with Trutina Dulcem™the only thermogenic (fat burning) sweetener on the market, and Stevia Leaf, an herb which does not impact blood sugar! In addition to the EnergyFirst Shake, EnergyFirst 100% Whey Isolate can also be added to oatmeal, yogurt, muffins, pancakes, and your other favorite recipes.
EnergyFirst Omega Oil Blend and Omega Seed Mix contain the perfect ratio of omega 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids. These fats are essential for brain, skin, joint, and digestive health. They have powerful proven anti–inflammatory properties, will help prevent and alleviate arthritis, tendonitis, digestive disorders, respiratory disorders; and are proven to lower triglycerides and cholesterol. Energyfirst Omega Oil can be blended with balsamic vinegar and mustard for a phenomenal salad and vegetable dressing. EnergyFirst Omega Mix is a great addition to salads, yogurt, soups, and oatmeal. The OmegaEnergy Fish Oil is also the best fish oil I have found with the highest ratio of EPA and DHA per serving.
Like a lot of people, I was getting very little greens in my diet. I knew I needed lots of greens to give me the energy I needed and to help prevent cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases. EnergyFirst Greenergy gave me the answer! 1 serving (1 tablespoon) provides the equivalent of 2lbs. of 100% certified organic green vegetables! Greenergy contains green tea extract, spirulina, barley grass, and other nutrient dense foods which are potent antioxidants, blood purifiers, detoxifiers, and immune boosters. The green tea extract is also a natural energizer. It is the perfect substitute for coffee in the morning! And, it tastes great! I add 1 scoop to my EnergyFirst Shake every morning.
I used to be a firm believer that I could get all the nutrients I needed from food alone. But in June 2003, the Journal of American Medical Association published an article stating that you it is impossible to get all then nutrients you need from food alone, and to achieve optimal health and disease prevention, you need to supplement with various micronutrients, in the form of a broad spectrum multi vitamin mineral with antioxidants. This news reinforced that I had been taught by EnergyFirst years before. Every morning I take EnergyFirst VitaEnergy with my shake. EnergyFirst VitaEnergy is a pharmaceutical grade, high potency, broad spectrum, multi–vitamin/mineral including the most potent antioxidants–Vitamin C, E, and beta–carotene.
I am happy that I could share with you my secrets to achieving vibrant health and optimal energy!
Yours in great health,
