Brian Rigby's Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Smoothie
1 scoop Chocolate Vegalite
1 cup so delicious
1/2 scoop Fibermend (add more if the texture allows)
1 tsp Cacao Nibs: Lots of antioxidants.
1 packet of loose leaf mint tea run through a coffee grounder or mixed right in the shake
1/4 cup of basic rolled oats
1 cup water. (Start with 1/2 cup water and add water to reduce thickness)
The reason I use oats in my shakes is two-fold. 1) They're a great source of slow-digesting complex carbohydrates which provide energy for hours, especially when combined with the protein and coconut milk in the shake.
2) They're naturally high in beta-glucan, a soluble fiber which promotes satiety, increases the health of our gut flora, and lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. The extra carbohydrate from the oats is key for active individuals to maintain good energy levels.

FiberMend is a blend of plant-based, water-soluble fibers, formulated to promote regularity and healthy glycemic control, enhance nutrient absorption, and help maintain optimum digestive function. FiberMend combines Sunfiber – a partially hydrolyzed guar gum fiber – with rice bran, larch arabinogalactan, apple pectin, prune powder, and green tea phytosome to provide an effective prebiotic fiber formula that is well-tolerated and easy to use. Because FiberMend is tasteless, odorless, and dissolves readily in water, it can be easily mixed with a morning smoothie or any preferred beverage.
RealDose Weight Loss Formula One. RealDose contains these 3 ingredients:
Ingredient #1: The Adiponectin Turbo Charger and Ghrelin Destroyer
The first ingredient, which is a blend of Piper Betle leaf and Dolichos Biflorus seed extracts, works by increasing adiponectin.
Adiponectin is the hormone that makes your fat cells literally burn fat for energy. The research is clear that increasing adiponectin leads to lower body fat.
In fact, research has shown that this combination of Piper Betle lead and Dolichos Biflorous seed extract increases adiponectin by 15.3% and decreases Grehlin by 17.3%
When your adiponectin levels rise it makes it easier for your body to turn fat into energy.
Ingredient #2: Double Action Sugar Blocker, Doubles Fat Loss
The second ingredient, a patented green coffee bean extract from Madagascar, helps prevent carbohydrates from turning into fat. It works by inhibiting glucose absorption. Blocking the absorption of glucose helps reduce insulin resistance, which is a common reason why people turn almost anything they eat into fat.
This is a decaffeinated extract, which contains a powerful weight loss substance called chlorogenic acids.
These acids help regulate blood sugar by inhibiting sugar absorption in the small intestine and backup sugar production by the liver, forcing your body to burn fat as energy instead of sugar.
Ingredients One and Two are separately proven to more than double your fat loss.
Ingredient #3: The Stress and Cortisol Killer
Elevated cortisol levels are associated with increased levels of belly (unhealthy) fats.
The third ingredient in this cravings buster combo is something called Rhodiola Rosea. This specific extract has been proven to reduce general anxiety and reduce stress in clinical studies.
By taking a high quality Rhodiola extract at the right dose (important!), you will naturally lower your cortisol levels, and even better brighten your mood. You will be less likely to engage in stress related eating and binging.
This ingredient is often recommended by doctors like Richard Brown, M.D. (Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons) for issues related to stress, sleep, energy, and even weight loss.
