Collagen Shamrock Shake

I once adored going to McDonald’s for a Shamrock Shake. But when Craig lost his job, I started cooking our favorite restaurant meals at home! Not only was it a great way to save money, but we both lost a lot of weight eating healthier versions at home!

I added Further Food vanilla collagen to my sugar free Shamrock Shake for an extra health boost!

1/3 of the protein in your body is collagen: skin, hair, nails, joints, gut, bones, ligaments.

Collagen doesn’t support muscle but it does support other parts of a healthy body. Especially our gut!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN:

  1. Can help with skin elasticity and aging. This means when losing a lot of weight it can help the skin shrink better, reduce wrinkles and cellulite
  2. It can help strengthen hair and reduce hair loss
  3. Improves joint health
  4. Builds bone strength
  5. Contains 18 amino acids that help muscle and ligament repair and recovery
  6. Contains glycine that helps with immune system health and helps with digestion

My 12 year old daughter pointed out that she has never seen me wear a sleeveless shirt….and added that I looked buff!

Thank you Maria and Craig Emmerich for all of your guidance! I am beyond happy to have found this way of eating and will never return to where I started. I am stronger, healthier, younger and feel fantastic. Keto on!

    Hi Maria,
    I was wondering about PSMF way of eating.
    The 3 days of 800 calories in a week, should they be done 3 days in a row or split up during the week?
    Thank you,
    Sherry

      It’s up to you. You can do them consecutively or alternate, whichever works better for you 🙂
