Active Nutrition Jumpstart Kit
The steps to switch to a healthier lifestyle can seem too high sometimes. You know you want to get into a healthier eating habit eating the right kinds of food, get regular exercise, etc. But it can be hard to visualize the path to take to get there, sometimes due to the lack of time – a chronic deficiency in our modern living. That’s when a plan like the Active Nutrition Jumpstart Kit comes in to guide you.
With this 7-day program, you get the chance to overhaul the way you’ve been eating and develop healthy habits around food. Resetting your diet is simplified with meal replacement shakes, healthy snack options, and probiotics plus metabolism support.
Dietary changes are the drivers of weight loss. The USANA Jumpstart Kit helps with that – it can be your launchpad to kick-off long-term, sustainable healthy eating. If you do it right, you’re bound to enjoy higher energy levels and maybe even weight loss.
The program comes with a package of USANA products designed for nutrition support and weight loss. These include:
- Nutrimeal Active Meal Replacement Shake
- USANA CellSentials
- USANA Probiotic
- USANA Metabolism+
Meal Replacement Shakes for Macros to Fuel Your Day
The Active Nutrition Jumpstart Kit is designed with weight loss in mind, but not in a ‘diet restrictive like way’!
The USANA Nutrimeal Active Meal Replacement Shake can replace one or two meals in a day with nutrient-rich supplements. Just shake up a pack with some water for a delicious, creamy, and rich shake to sustain you during the transition to a healthier diet.
Each serving of the shake consists of 20 grams of protein, at least 8 grams of fiber, less than 10 grams of sugar, and 9 grams of fat.
Filling yourself up with protein rather than carbs will keep you full for longer. Studies suggest including 1.2 to 1.6 grams/kg body weight of protein per meal per day is good for weight loss. That typically translates to around 25 to 30 grams of protein per meal per day. Proteins keep you full for longer, so you’re less likely to reach for the junk food snack even a couple of hours after a meal. A higher protein-to-carbs diet may help to manage body weight and may reduce heart disease risk factors.
Fiber will protect your gut health, which is extremely important for your food to be processed properly. Fiber also helps with appetite control. You need a total of around 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day, 8 grams of which you’ll be consuming with one pack of USANA Active Nutrition meal replacement shake.
The sugars and fats that go into the meal replacement shakes will complete your body’s macro needs for the day as a low-carb diet would. A very low-carb diet tends to include between 20 grams and 50 grams of carbs in a day.
Together, the macros you get from a serving of USANA Active Nutrition will help you power through your day. But there are other nutrients you need for proper cell function and sustained energy as well.
Cell Health with CellSentials
Besides macronutrients, your body needs a host of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that you’d typically get from fruits and vegetables. If a busy schedule or other constraints prevents you from getting your daily recommended serving of fruits and vegetables, USANA CellSentials is there to support you.
The blend of Vita Antioxidants and Core Minerals is made with a patented USANA InCelligence Technology that helps activate the body’s ability to respond to stress. Stress damages cells and tissues, and antioxidants help to remove free radicals that are toxic to cells. You’d typically get these antioxidants from functional foods.
CellSentials contains four types of nutrients –
- Essential and trace minerals and vitamins such as Magnesium, Calcium, Iodine, Zinc, Chromium, Selenium, Boron, Manganese, Silicon, Vanadium, Molybdenum, NAC, and Copper. These keep your body’s electrical signals pulsing and
- Vitamins A, C, D, B, E, K, Lutein, Lycopene, Choline, Coenzyme Q10 and Mixed Tocopherols. Vitamins are essential for a variety of defensive and supportive functions.
- InCelligence Complex of Alpha Lipoic Acid, Olivol Olive-Fruit Extract, Green Tea Extract, Quercetin, and other compounds.
When your cells are healthy and receiving the minerals and phytonutrients they need to overcome the effects of stress and function normally, your entire body benefits, including your:
- Nervous system
- Immune system
- Cardiovascular system
- Bones and joints
- Muscle and tissue
What’s important is that each tablet of CellSentials contains nutrients in their bioavailable form. When you get your nutrients from food, not all of it is absorbed into your body as it should be. Bioavailable nutrients are quickly absorbed and carried where they need to go.
Gut health and metabolism support
Your gut is the seat of digestion, the controller of moods, and linked to a host of bodily processes. USANA Probiotics helps to keep your gut microbiome balanced and healthy. The right balance of bacteria and other microbes in your gut will help you get the sustained energy you need throughout the day. It will also impact your appetite, your moods for the better.
The sugar-free USANA Probiotic will help you support your immune system and digestive health with a bouquet of beneficial bacteria. You can take a stick every other day to keep your gut microbiome environment balanced. Doing so will help you with better digestion, better nutrient absorption. You’ll feel less discomfort in your gut, and enjoy regularity. In the long run, your immune system will thank you.
There are different kinds of probiotics out there. USANA Probiotics contains strains of lactobacillus and bifidobacterium that are known to offer benefits against illnesses like: diarrhea, entercolitis, ulceritive colitis, IBS, dental caries, asthma and a host of other illnesses.
USANA Metabolism+ is a bonus supplement to speed up your metabolism with green tea extract, EGCG, a proprietary bioflavanoid complex, and platycodon grandiflorum. Green tea supports your metabolism and EGCG, also present in green tea, offers hormonal support, and helps with energy production.
Bioflavanoids in the complex help to maintain normal blood glucose levels in non-diabetics. Platycodon grandiflorum is known to help with fat breakdown.
The Final Word!
Together, the nutrition packs provided in the 7-day USANA Active Nutrition Jumpstart Kit will help you switch some of the unhealthy food choices you’re making.
