As a GP patient it is all about trial and error with our diets. What foods work today may not work tomorrow. Personally I have a terrible time with fruits. I can’t digest them and they give my GI tract a run for its money. I found this Naked Juice Protein Zone Smoothie and I absolutely LOVE it!! It’s a mixture of pineapples, bananas, coconuts, apples and oranges; what more could you want?!? As for the nutritional content it has 30 grams of Whey and Soy protein and it is made from 100% of the all natural best bare “naked” fruits; they don’t add sugar. This product excites me. I could live off this product!http://www.nakedjuice.com/#Homepage
Next would be my Tervis Tumbler. Because my diet consists of a lot of liquids, I am a big drinker. I can not stand condensation however. Whether it's Gatorade or a smoothie, it gets all over the place. With my Tervis Tumbler there is no condensation. What's cool about these tumblers is that you can personalize everything; size, color, design - everything! You can alternate lids which is nice; a coffee lid in the morning and a straw lid in the evening or you can go without - your preference.
I am all about heat. I love the heating pad. Whenever I saw this product it took about two seconds and I was sold...HEAT! This product works great during those horrid GP flare ups or great during times of bloating when you feel like you've swallowed a watermelon and those abdominal muscles are so tender. What's great about this product is that it's usable either hot or cold; all you have to do is pop it in the microwave or freezer - how hard is that? I'm all about simplicity when my GP is flaring up. (Thank you Crystal for introducing me to this product!)
Last but not least Gatorade G2. We GP patients consume a lot of this. Frankly I'm not a big Gatorade person, never have been, never will be. It's sugary and strong tasting to be and it bothers my stomach (along with the majority of things LOL). Gatorade G2 I learned is different and tastes better plus it doesn't bother my stomach. G2 has electrolytes in it which is a wonderful benefit for those athlethes and us GP'ers so we don't dehydrate so quickly. It also has fewer calories and less sugar than other Gatorades - if you happen to be watching you calorie and sugar level intake. I am picky about my Gatorade flavors; I maybe two flavors (it's not like I have room to be picky). When I found this flavor raspberry melon, I was really excited - NEW FLAVOR!
I just thought I'd share some of my favorite products with you. I hate buying something and not knowing what to expect; have other people been satisfied with this product or what does it taste like? If you have any products that you'd like to share please feel free to email me.
