Hi-Pro Peanut Butter Review

Hi Pro Peanut Butter
Nut butters are fantastic way of packing extra protein into your diet, particularly peanut, almond and hazelnut butter varieties. They're great for spreading on protein pancakes, mixing into smoothies or adding into baking and cooking to make delicious snacks like granola bars.

 Of course you have to be careful that the nut butter you buy doesn't contain loads of added extras like sugar or whey powder (especially important to look out for if you are lactose intolerant). Supermarket own brand and other popular brands are often loaded with sugar to make them easily spreadable and more appealing to the mass market, and as a consequence they are lower in protein content than the nut butters offered by health conscious brands.

For most body types belly fat is the hardest to lose. Aside from aesthetic reasons, belly fat is the least ideal kind of fat in the body because it is heavily linked to several diseases: metabolic syndrome, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. There are two kinds of belly fat—visceral and subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat is that fat that surrounds your organs, and since this fact is supplied by the largest blood vessel in the body, it is also responsible for increasing bad cholesterol and fatty acids in your blood. Subcutaneous fat is the fat between and above the abdominal muscles and under the skin.
