Highlighted in  todays post is Bariatric Advantage Iced Latte … the very best! I've had the vanilla which is also good, not a big fan of the unflavored. I am amazed at how filling these shakes are. I have one for breakfast and one for lunch with just water and occasionally a bit of instant coffee, or in the vanilla some fresh strawberries.

Great way to manage weight!

Tried many different kinds of protein shakes, even several gourmet, and NONE compare to Bariatric Advantage. The price is really reasonable when compared to other options on the market today. I highly recommend giving this brand a try. It does seem to work well at making me feel full. I drink a shake on my way in to work at 6 and don't find myself thinking about food until usually around noon. I actually think it helps me with my cravings as well, but that could be just me!
This stuff is awesome with just water. It gets thick like a shake should be…not runny at all. Tastes great too…

Elastic Band Workout – Arms


Arm Exercise #1:

Name: Standing Biceps Curl with elastic bands
Gym Equivalent: Standing
Dumbbell/
Cable Machine Curls
Area Targeted: Front of Arms

Get the equipment:Resistance bands at amazing prices. Flat, tube & more. Click here!

Standing bicep curls is the basic exercise for biceps and to do it, you simply step on the elastic while you hold the handles using elastic bands.

If you need more resistance you can wrap the band twice around your feet and make it shorter. Of course if you don't have other bands available.

This is why I always suggest to buy a set of resistance bands, especially the stackable type.

Anyway, the standing curls exercise is straightforward for elastic band workout for the arms.

The start position is with your arms extended along your side holding the band that you not be loose but already in tension, and your palms towards your body.
