How to reduce/eliminate joint pain and grow strong hair and nails!

By | Health, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Gelatin, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Uncategorized

Collogen3I have received a few emails asking about how I learned about Hydrolyzed Collagen in the first place and what is the quality of the Fit Moms Hydrolyzed Collagen, specifically. Six years ago, when Tracie Fountain, our incredible nutritional counselor, mentioned “hydrolyzed gelatin (or collagen) I said, “SAY WHAT?” I had never heard of it before, let alone know what it actually did. But Tracie is one smart woman and had been seeing incredible results in her clients’ lives for many years. So over the course of the past 6 years, hydrolyzed gelatin has become a staple of all our menus and eating plans that my clients receive and the stories shared have been incredible.

About 18 months ago, I started to ask the question, would it be possible for Fit Moms for Life to have its own brand of collagen? As I began to research where it came from and how it is created, the path to getting our own seemed nearly impossible.

My standards were high…

  • must be from pasture raised cows
  • gluten free
  • MSG free
  • Allergenic free
  • Kosher
  • tasteless
  • Odorless
  • dissolves in anything
  • and meet the highest standards of quality control

Since there are only a couple companies in the world that source this, it came down to a lot of hard work, persistence and a little luck.

But…We got it! ->-> Click here to purchase while supplies last. <-<-

Since launching 6 months ago, the feedback has been incredible.  Check out the image below which represent some of the most recent Amazon reviews that have come in:

[Recipe] Healthy Energy Protein Snack Balls!

By | Health, Healthy Snacks, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Recipes, Uncategorized

Collogen2“My joints are sore again Dustin,” one of my newer clients recently told me. I asked her why. “Because I went on a week’s vacation and I didn’t bring the Fit Moms Hydrolyzed Collagen with me.” I don’t blame her for not bringing it through TSA security; it is a white powdery substance so maybe it looks very similar to cocaine, not that I really know what cocaine looks like in real life.

Today, I want to share with you a tasty recipe that includes my favorite protein powder that keeps my inflammation and joint pain away. Most protein bars are disguised as candy bars.  Making your own is the best way to ensure you have only natural ingredients.  They aren’t as hard to make as you might think and store well all day for an on-the-go snack.

This recipe comes from our Fit Moms Hydrolyzed Cookbook, which you get FREE with the purchase of our collagen. ->-> Click here to order our hydrolyzed collagen on Amazon <-<-

Sore joints? This is for you… Hydrolyzed Collagen Back in Stock [big sale]

By | Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Gelatin, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Transformations, Uncategorized

I was in my office in the back of the Transformation Center, when a client came in excited.  She told me she saw my car out front and thought I might be around. “My 76 year old mom LOVES you and can’t stop talking about you!” she exclaimed. I was confused, I had never met her mom from Indiana before, and I can’t say I have had many 76 year olds confessing their love towards me.

“Why?” I asked. My client explained, “We gave her the Fit Moms Hydrolyzed Collagen 4 weeks ago, and her chronic knee pain is totally gone.  She could hardly walk up stairs and when she did it was very painful, but now she is pain free. She can’t stop talking about it and how happy she is.” I smiled and told her I am so happy to hear that.  Almost everyday I hear a story like this.  Joint pain is dramatically reduced, hair grows stronger, nails get thicker, hunger pains subside, weight loss occurs, and sometimes skin tone improves.

Since launching our own hydrolyzed collagen a little bit ago, over 1,000 clients have seen the benefits of it and made it part of their daily routine to add to their coffee, tea, yogurt, smoothie, soups, baked goods and much more.

How to Eat Cookies for Breakfast, Guilt-Free!! (Recipes Included)

By | Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Gelatin, Kids nutrition, Lifestyle, Mothers, Nutrition, Recipes, Uncategorized

I’ve heard so many stories about moms struggling to get their kids to eat a good, protein-packed breakfast before they go to school that I thought I’d share my secret weapon. Cookies for breakfast. (Recipes below!)

Protein Packed Monster Breakfast Cookies (Yields 16-20 cookies)

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup almond butter, cashew butter, or sunbutter
  • 1/3 cup coconut (or cane) sugar
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup hydrolyzed collagen
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened & finely shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup hemp seed
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (or cacao nibs or carob chips)
  • 1/3 cup desired seeds or raisins, optional

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream the almond butter, sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Beat in the egg. Beat in the collagen, baking soda and sea salt, and then stir in all other remaining ingredients.
  3. Roll the dough by heaping tablespoon into balls and place them on the baking sheets spaced about 3 inches apart. Using the tips of your fingers, gently flatten the dough until it is about 1/2 an inch thick.
  4. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cookies are turning golden brown at the edges. Leave cookies on the baking sheet to cool.
  5. Store the cookies uncovered out on the counter (so the air can get to them). They will crunch up on the outside, but still remain soft on the inside. If you store them in an airtight container, they will retain too much moisture and crumble easily.

Peanut Butter Protein Balls (Serves 6)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten free quick oats
  • 1/4 cup natural “drippy” peanut or almond butter
  • 2 T hydrolyzed collagen (gelatin)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Place quick oats in a food processor and blend until consistency is that of flour.
  2. Place almond or peanut butter in a medium-sized bowl. One tablespoon at a time, sprinkle small amounts of the gelatin over the top and stir for several minutes until dissolved.
  3. Add processed quick oats and honey and stir until combined.
  4. Add chocolate chips, and using your hands, combine mixture thoroughly.
  5. Form into 1-inch balls. Place on a small cookie sheet or plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to serving.
  6. Store in the refrigerator.
Notes:

*Note: Make sure to use natural almond or peanut butter that requires you to mix in the standing oil at the top for this recipe. It should be stirred well and not oily prior to using or the balls will have difficulty staying together.

Can Protein Powders Be Harmful?

By | Hydrolyzed Collagen, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Recipes, Uncategorized

I hope you’ve enjoyed learning a little more about this truly amazing protein—hydrolyzed collagen—over the past few days, and maybe even tried some of our recipes! If you missed our videos, check them out here. Find our hydrolyzed collagen on Amazon here.

I’ve been getting some questions about it via email, so I thought I’d take a moment to answer a few of them here.

Can collagen replace whey or other protein powders?

Many have asked if hydrolyzed collagen is a replacement for whey protein powder. The answer is absolutely yes. Like whey protein, hydrolyzed collagen is easily absorbed and utilized by the body, making it a perfect post-workout protein.

In fact, many people use collagen instead of whey because it is a cleaner, less processed source of protein.

While I do not claim to be an expert on this, there has been some negative publicity about whey protein powders, highlighting questions about quality and purity. Many of these powders are processed and packaged in China, and a 2010 Consumer Reports analysis and 2013 and 2015 ConsumerLab.com analyses found potential contamination issues (heavy metals, arsenic) in 20-20% of the samples tested. You can read more about this here, here and here if you want.

I do believe that there are safe, high quality, whey protein powders and, in general, whey is a great, easily absorbed protein if you can tolerate dairy. But some people are choosing to avoid the potential risk completely by switching over to hydrolyzed collagen or some other single source protein (hemp hearts, pea protein, etc).

The other major and noticeable difference between whey protein and hydrolyzed collagen is that collagen does not have a flavor. Some protein powders can be chalky tasting and require a lot of sweetener to make them palatable. Hydrolyzed collagen does not change the taste or texture of things and has no added sugar (or any other ingredient).

How much should I use and how quickly will I see results?

We recommend 2 scoops per day—1 in the morning and 1 in the evening—for the best results. You should notice a difference in 4-6 weeks.

Can I use it in a meal-replacement shake?

Yes—the protein will help you feel full longer and will balance your blood sugar. Just make sure that, if you are making a meal-replacement smoothie/shake, you include healthy fats along with the collagen protein and the carbs (fruit, vegetables etc). You can use a nut butter, avocado, coconut oil, or even chia seeds. Including a healthy fat will balance the meal and keep you satisfied.

I still think back to when Tracie Fountain introduced me to this product. I was so skeptical, but I cannot get over the difference it has made for me and just about all of my clients who use it.

Every day I hear from people who can walk up and down stairs without pain; who no longer suffer cravings because they’ve managed to balance their blood sugar; who are no longer hungry all of the time because they’ve increased their protein consumption.

Can you take too much of it–is too much bad for you?

No. Because hydrolyzed collagen has no other ingredients and is simply protein from pastured cattle, there is no toxic amount. You cannot “overdose” on collagen.

Just check out a few of the comments we’ve been getting on Amazon:

This product is amazing. My wife & I enjoy going to the gym but do not enjoy the soreness that follows. My wife found this product on Fit Moms for Life, and she ordered it and we began to take it immediately on arrival. It WORKS….the soreness is minimal and our energy levels are improving daily. I would like to say THANK YOU for creating this product and I am in hopes more people begin to use it. You won’t be disappointed!!!!! Daniel & Leslie M

This product dissolves easily into almost anything. The free cookbook is a nice touch and the Baked Oatmeal is outstanding! I like that when it lists the Other Ingredients: it says “Nothing!” I bought it to help with sore wrists. I hadn’t noticed until now that they are not sore. I plan on using it for a full two months and then going off it for two weeks to see if the soreness returns. It is easy to add to my diet so keeping up with 2 servings a day is simple. Mary M

I have been using this product for a couple weeks and absolutely love it. I try not to eat carbs alone, so this is a really nice addition to my coffee or tea if I am enjoying it with oatmeal or a muffin. I did find it to add a really subtle vanilla flavor, but my husband disagrees. The protein adds a satisfying component that I didn’t anticipate, but really love! I have also experienced less soreness post-workout than I ever have before! I’m looking forward to seeing if it has any effects on my hair and nails in a few more weeks. Will definitely be purchasing again! Katie C

Hydrolyzed Collagen Now Back In Stock (with free digital cookbook)

By | Behavior Change, Moms, Mothers, Nutrition, Recipes, Uncategorized

Last week I excitedly launched our Fit Moms for Life hydrolyzed collagen and, exactly 7 minutes after launching, we sold out. That was awful customer service on my part and I apologize. We just had 480 additional units arrive at Amazon, with another 250 coming later next week, so it is back in stock for now. After these units sell, we might have one more shortage as we focus on improving the packaging even more.

-> -> Click here to order now <-<

CollogenThose who were quick to order have been reporting loving the (digital) collagen cookbook that comes with it. Our nutritionists Tracie Fountain and Hallie Klecker did an incredible job coming up with over 30 mouth-watering recipes. (You will find instructions on how to download the cookbook on the collagen bottle.) We launched the collagen with a special price of just $39.99, which is less than 50 cents per serving! Since launching last week, Amazon has increased their fees for vendors, and the raw price of collagen is increasing this month. To reflect that, the retail price is now $47.99 (instead of $45.99)–still a great value for 82 servings. However, we want to continue to offer it to you at our special launch price of just $39.99.

To receive $8 off each container please use coupon code: FM4LVIPS

I have set it up so you can order multiple jars and receive the $8 off each one. Please feel free to share this coupon code with any family members, friends or on social media. All I ask is that you leave a review on Amazon once you receive the product and hopefully love it.

When my mom heard I was launching a FM4L brand of hydrolyzed collagen she wanted me to make sure she shared her own experience with you. Haha

Here is my mom:

When Dustin shared Tracie’s blog regarding collagen for joint health and as a good source of protein, I started using it a few years ago.

Last year, I was experiencing some knee pain and along with wearing some arch supports, eventually the pain disappeared; I no longer have any joint pain at all…..I use 2 scoops of the collagen daily, about 5 Tbsp., partly to get more good protein in. I just dump it in my magic bullet with my homemade coconut milk kefir, some ground flaxseed, a little stevia…..frozen berries would be good too, but I enjoy eating them separate.

So, like everything, without doing a controlled experiment, one never knows for sure what it is that helps! I have read enough about this product, and happy to know the cattle used are pasture raised……well, to me it is a smart thing to add to the diet.”

When you order the collagen on Amazon you will probably see the other product we are going to officially launch in a couple weeks, which is a foam roller. I have been holding foam roller workshops this past week in Madison and the feedback has been amazing.

Mystery Powder

By | Behavior Change, Health, Hydrolyzed Gelatin, Lifestyle, Uncategorized

Collogen2Hundreds, if not thousands, of my clients have already experienced the benefits of what I am going to talk about, but if you aren’t one of them, listen up.

Six years ago, when Tracie Fountain, our incredible nutritional counselor, mentioned “hydrolyzed gelatin”, I said, “SAY WHAT?” I had never heard of it before, let alone know what it actually did.  But, Tracie is one smart woman and had been seeing incredible results in her clients’ lives for many years with this amazing protein. So over the course of the past 6 years, hydrolyzed gelatin (also known as hydrolyzed collagen) has become a staple of all the menus and eating plans that my clients receive and the stories shared have been incredible.

Click here to watch my interview with Tracie and learn what makes collagen so special. Please leave a comment and post any questions that you have about collagen. I will be reading through all of these myself and will try to answer all of your questions.  

About a year ago I started to ask the question, would it be possible for Fit Moms for Life to have its own brand of collagen? As I began to research where it came from and how it is created, the path to getting our own seemed nearly impossible.

My standards were high…

  • Must be from pasture raised cows
  • Gluten free
  • MSG free
  • Allergenic free
  • Kosher
  • Tasteless
  • Odorless
  • Dissolves in anything
  • Pure
  • Must meet the highest standards of quality

Since there are only a couple companies in the world that source hydrolyzed collagen, it came down to a lot of hard work, persistence, and a little luck. But… We got it!

I would like to introduce Fit Moms For Life Hydrolyzed Collagen (gelatin). This is going to only be offered exclusively on Amazon for now, with FREE shipping for prime users. The reason why it will be exclusively on Amazon for awhile (at the expense of almost all FM4L profits) is that my vision is very big with this product. I want it to help bring relief to millions of families around the country. In order to do that, we have to make sure that people can find it. And the way Amazon works is a popularity game. The more sales and 5 star reviews we can get, along with stories of how it has helped, the quicker we will reach the top of the search engines. Once Amazon users begin to order from us, they will be introduced to the Fit Moms for Life community and their lives will be impacted much further.

CollogenSo, I am willing to take nearly all profits off the table and start by selling through Amazon in order to make a bigger difference in the world. Cool? It gets even better. Fit Moms for Life has created what I believe to be the first ever hydrolyzed collagen cookbook to ever exist. I have enlisted the help of Tracie and Hallie, two incredible chefs and collagen users, to share 30 delicious recipes, all containing this powerful protein powder. You get the cookbook for FREE! That is right, part of the perk for you ordering the Fit Moms for Life Hydrolyzed Collagen, is that you will receive a digital copy of the cookbook.

I want to make this a no brainer… As soon as this product is ready to go live (on Monday morning, at 10AM CST!), we will send out the Amazon link and a $6 off coupon that you can use and share with any of your friends. It is a little way of saying thanks for supporting FM4L while improving your joints and health.

Bad News… On Monday, Amazon will have only 240 containers in stock and they will sell out very quickly. (Shipments were delayed by the recent snow storms in the Midwest and Northeast, which is why we cannot open up sales until Monday.) So, once we open up our Amazon store on Monday, February 9 at 10AM CST, you won’t want to delay! We will send you an email on Monday morning letting you know exactly when the product goes live and you can place your order.

Click here to watch my interview with Tracie and learn what makes collagen so special. Please leave a comment and post any questions that you have about collagen—I will be reading through all of these myself. Watch for my answers to show up in your inbox this weekend! In case you missed my last blog post, here are just a couple of the over 1,000 incredible stories from people using hydrolyzed gelatin in their own lives.

“By sheer accident I came upon this product when I was on another blog. Checked out on Amazon to see reviews. Very positive so I ordered it. Love this product. My hair is healthier, my nails stronger and I finally feel relief from joint pain. I am 55 years old and nothing else has worked. The slight appetite suppress is just another plus. Pure quality.”

-Linda

“I’ve been using this product for exactly one week and I can already tell the difference in my big toe joints where I suffer from osteoarthritis. Typically, I’d pop 2 Aleve EVERY morning to minimize the joint pain. I’ve not taken any in a week! The product is operating as advertised and I encourage folks to use this product if they are suffering joint pain and discomfort. It works!”

-Harold

“FINALLY a clean protein that doesn’t bother any of my allergies! The best protein i have found, and i have been looking for years. if you have issues with cow dairy and soy, it can be very tough to get a quality protein powder. sure, there are rice and pea and hemp… they just weren’t very effective for me. until i found this, the best i could find for my system was hemp protein. This stuff is amazing. no taste, dissolves quickly in cold. Can be used in hot, too. Because there is no taste, you can put it in anything. Feel like hot tea with lemon and honey in the morning? Toss some protein in there. An additional benefit of this protein is that your nails and hair will get noticeably stronger and in better condition.”

-Linda

“Life changing. I have suffered on and off from planar fasciitis. My pain is gone when I take it. I also suffered from SPD my last pregnancy and after giving birth it helped restore me back to normal faster. Added bonus is my hair is thicker and very shiny, and my nails grow fast and strong.”

-Kelly

“I started taking this last year when I noticed I was having “cracking” in all my joints, even the joints in my sternum area when I would stretch-uncomfortable & weird! I am only 37, so too soon for this to be happening! I researched products and decided to try it. I read the reviews on it & have to agree this product is great. I have no more cracking in my knees, shoulders, anywhere! I typically just pour a fair amount into my morning coffee. I would definitely recommend buy this if you are having any joint issues regardless of age. It definitely helps! Another bonus is it lasts a very long time. I can get a container of this to last around 4-5 months minimum and that’s even with my daily generous usage. Also, it does not affect the taste of whatever you may drinking & is supposed to have skin benefits as well!”
