Starting over


Recommended Posts

I started May 30th but for the last week I've been having Arbonne chocolate protein shakes probably once a day. That's the only thing that has thrown me off my game, I believe. I still feel really good and energy is great but I'm feeling a little bloated. I ran out of my blood pressure medicine this week, which has the "water pill" like qualities so that could account for the bloating too. At any rate, I'm starting over w/out the shakes.


6 eggs with 1/2 sweet potato, tomatoes, carrots

I split this meal into 2 parts; I had 1/2 of it for breakfast and 1/2 as a mid-morning snack.

I could not find an ingredient list for Arbonne protein powders or shakes online, but I would not trust "vegan protein" as being anything I want to eat. This is basically a highly processed food, regardless quality claims.

Found the ingredients. It's for the vanilla flavor, but I'd assume essentially the same. http://www.arbonnema...2070_au_eng.pdf

IngredIent lIst: Protein Blend (pea protein isolate, cranberry protein, rice protein), cane

sugar, sunflower oil, natural vanilla flavour, starch (corn), inulin, stabilisers (xanthan gum, gum

acacia, guar gum), salt, mineral salt (potassium chloride), acidity regulator (sodium citrate),

sweetener (steviol glycosides), kelp, alfalfa, ginseng, ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10), vitamins

(vitamin C, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin E, vitamin B6, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamin A, folic

acid, biotin, vitamin B12, vitamin D), minerals (calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper,

manganese, iodine, chromium, molybdenum).

Ewwwwww! Why eat this when real food is so tasty?

Also, Arbonne looks like a classic multi-level marketing scam. Just my opinion.
