Looking to shape-up for summer or maintain your beach body throughout winter? We’re taking a leaf from our co-founder Elle Macpherson’s book.
“Summer’s coming up, and I too am getting ready for my summer body,” said Elle on British talk show This Morning. “I know that sounds really corny, but we all think about that.”
With studies showing that a diet high in plant-based protein is ideal for weight loss, knowing exactly what to eat is vital in reaching your fitness and wellness goals.
Plant-based protein helps build and maintain lean muscle, maintain effective metabolic function and crush annoying hunger pangs. And while chicken, fish, and beef might be top of your menu, plant-based sources are extra beneficial. Brimming with fiber, inflammation-fighting antioxidants, lots of nutrients and fewer calories, they are key for getting your body beach-ready, fast and healthily.
Whilst for the time-poor, breakfast can be a bowl of cereal, lunch a quick sandwich, and dinner a bowl of pasta, Dr Simone Laubscher PhD says to properly fuel our bodies and shape up healthily, clean food is the ideal way to provide our bodies with everything it needs to stay in shape.
“Finding good clean hormone-free protein, can be difficult, especially when we are busy,” says Dr Laubscher. “A great way around this is to incorporate a clean protein powder into your diet. You can have this as a meal replacement, on the side of your lunch or as a wonderful mid-afternoon ‘pick-me-up’.”
Elle agrees and says WelleCo NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN is her shape-up go-to. “Sometimes I’ll use it as a meal replacement in the evenings or if I’ve had a really strong breakfast or a strong lunch I can get away with having a protein shake for dinner,” says Elle. “But if it’s leading up to summer and you want to drop a few pounds that’s the way I do it and I find it really, really helpful. For a short period of time obviously, it’s not for an extended period,”
A complete protein source that can be enjoyed as a satisfying and delicious meal replacement, mid-afternoon energy hit or late night sweet-fix, WelleCo NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN is powered by 9 essential amino acids essential for ramping up endurance and energy and digestive enzymes for boosting the metabolism and balancing blood sugar levels for a leaner and cleaner body.
