I was presented with the opportunity as a SweatPink Ambassador to review IdealShape and do a giveaway (more details on that later)! I have found that it is so easy to incorporate this into my daily life! As Ironman Florida training ramps up, I’m getting hungrier but I still need to lose some weight so I needed an alternative (to snacking) to help me out. This has been the perfect addition to my daily routine.
I’ve been taking my shaker and putting the IdealShape powder in baggies to make it a little easier to get to work… I find myself drinking a shake on the way to work and then I’m good for the morning. I had been snacking a little too much at my desk and this has managed to keep me full for the morning.
It’s also been great to take in a few extra calories before going to work out in the evening. With workouts consistently once or twice in my day, 7 days a week, I need to keep fueling my body. It’s important to me though not to overly fuel my body as it reacts with instantaneous expanding ass syndrome. Can’t be doing that with another Ironman on the way this fall.
The IdealShape chocolate IdealShake is my favorite as it is just a good tasting shake. I’ve made it with both water and milk (separate times peeps), and if you want it to be a little thicker then I suggest you go with milk. I like to do that for the morning, after my morning workout to help get some protein added in my system for recovery. I also have the Orange Cream and it is not bad at all – I’ve only had that with water so I bet it would taste like an orange dreamsicle if I made it with milk.
Depending on how I feel, I may incorporate IdealBoost into my day. The training munchies are REAL folks! I’ve found that the Boost not only gives me a little more pep in my afternoon step but it curbs my appetite. This has helped me make some huge gains in keeping my calorie intake at a normal level as an endurance athlete.
IdealBoost flavors have blown me away, in a good way! They are light and refreshing and definitely a nice complement for it being summa, summa, summertime! The thin packets fit nicely in anything you may be carrying (purse, gym bag, wristlet, etc). You can empty them in a shaker with 16 oz of water, or use a water bottle to have the same refreshing drink. I’ve found I can go about 3 hours, or most of the afternoon, not needing to snack. AMAZING!
