I have been promising product reviews FOREVER! Sorry, real life gets busy sometimes
Today I have a LOT of products on hand to review, all of which will fit easily into your fit-friendly lifestyle AND many of which may even make it better.
Let’s start with FOOD!
Come Ready Nutrition
OK, I found these bars just about a week ago and have been so excited I bought lots of boxes and started acting like Santa. These things are the BOMB. Come Ready Nutrition does one thing: BARS. They don’t dabble in lots of other things and spread themselves too thin. They seem to commit to making the BEST tasting bars with the least amount of junk on the market. Taste-wise, I will give a quote from my son who said “I like them way better than Quest bars”. I know I’ll get shot for that one. They really are superior in taste AND texture. I have really well-defined jaw muscles and don’t need a super chewy bar to work them out AFTER my workout. At 190 calories, these bars are great as snacks, pre and post workout nutrition, or an on-the-go breakfast option.
Where can you grab some?
They are just beginning to pop up in your local Costco, where you can get them for cheaper than $1/bar (now you see why I’ve been giving them away). Of course, if your Costco doesn’t have them, check out Bodybuilding.com
Lean Body for Her Whey Protein
Everybody loves some Jamie Eason! She’s super cute, very encouraging, AND a Houston gal at that! She has teamed up with Labrada Nutrition (a Houston based company) to create a line of products specifically for us gals. The whey protein (in chocolate and vanilla) is high quality whey without the HUGE overhead and expense. It blends well with just about anything, including hot coffee. The taste is very clean, with no nasty after taste. I use it post workout, and sometimes pre-workout on very busy days. The Peanut Protein has really been blowing me away and is better taste, texture and mixability than PB2. If you are on a high protein diet (says the figure girl) OR you struggle with getting enough protein in your diet, check it out. No filler, no artificial sweeteners (which can cause bloat) and made with all natural ingredients.

Lean Body for Her Anti-Bloat
This product was created to take the bloat away for those of us who can suffer with water retention or not-so-smooth gastrointestinal functions. Is that an ok way to put that? While the ingredients are good for combatting bloat, it should be noted that this is NOT a probiotic and should only be used on occasion. Also, if you have a big function coming up and need to drop weight FAST…..you should have started a while back. Don’t rely on any pill or potion for quick results. The Anit-Bloat system is created to be gentle on the body, however it should be noted that some of the ingredients (as in MANY anti-bloating products) have been known to cause anal leakage in some individuals. Always test your tolerance.

Purus Labs Theatrim
Let me preface by stating that I do not condone the use of “fat burners” to aid in weight loss. I do, however, know that fat burners are used and have a place in certain stages of contest prep and/or fat loss. I also know that people LOVE fat burners, so I may as well let you know when a decent one hits the market. Please note: NO pill will get you to your goal, that’s all you baby.
Theatrim is created on the base of Theacrine,a compound that has been shown to decrease appetite and increase overall body fat loss. Purus Labs (a Dallas based company) is committed to the research and testing behind each and every product. Persoanlly, I found that this product did help with focus without giving me the fat burner jitters. My appetite seems the same (always on) but who know? Perhaps I could have eaten more…..LOL
Where can I get some?
The Trainers Edge has the BEST prices….and some pretty awesome athletes
Better Bodies Tights
OK, I have been skeptical of Better Bodies clothing since day one (so sorry). I bought my first pair of tights a few weeks ago and I am HOOKED! These are the BEST tights I have ever owned. It feels as though you are wearing nothing, but not in a creepy way. It just feels as though they are a second skin. They move with you during your workout and NEVER go where they are uninvited. I don’t have to pull and tug on them during my workouts and I can always count on them making me feel and look just a little tighter. It may be in my head, but it works! I highly recommend any fitness enthusiast to have a few pair of these tights in their wardrobe. Just so you get a size idea, I wear a Medium and the waist band is a bit loose. I will probably grab some smalls as my prep goes on.
Where can I get them?
Elite 1 has the BEST prices on tights! I got mine on sale for $49 and they are worth every single penny.
I hope you get something out of these reviews!
