Understanding How the Bedtime Belly Buster Works

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you know that restless nights can be quite normal. It’s not just those late-night cravings for carbs that can get to you. Some scientific studies suggest that the calorie deficit inherent in a typical restricted-calorie diet may also disrupt normal sleep patterns, among other challenges (1).

Studies also have shown that providing your body with a serving of protein before bedtime will help you to feel full, boost your metabolic rate, and support muscle metabolism while you sleep (2).

The core components of the Bedtime Belly Buster (BBB) include a serving of IsaPro® or AMPED Tri-Release protein blended with Isagenix Fruits™ or Greens™.

Together, these BBB components are designed to satisfy late-night cravings while helping you get your rest. This, in turn, can help keep you on track to release stubborn belly fat.

Getting enough quality protein is an important nutritional strategy for protecting against muscle loss while losing weight. Research shows that, on average, around 25 percent of weight lost from typical dieting is from lean body mass (3).

Components of the BBB

The core components of the BBB are intended to provide extra support for your weight loss efforts through nutrition and restful sleep.

The Bedtime Belly Buster (BBB) consists of the following core components:

  • 1 scoop of IsaPro® Whey or Plant-Based Protein or 1 scoop of AMPED™ Tri-Release Protein
  • 1 scoop of Isagenix Fruits or  Greens

For an extra kick of nutrients before bedtime, the following complementary products are commonly taken alongside the BBB.

IsaPro Whey Protein and Plant-Based Protein

IsaPro provides high-quality protein which has been shown to offer benefits such as support for muscle maintenance and growth. Consuming a serving of protein before bed also helps to support better recovery from exercise and may support satiety when taken at bedtime.

IsaPro Whey Protein is available in both Chocolate and Vanilla, each of which will give you that sweet sensation without the empty calories, fat, and sugar of typical late-night treats. IsaPro Plant-Based Protein is a great option for anyone who is focused on plant-based nutrition or who just wants greater variety in their day.

Isagenix Fruits and Isagenix Greens

Isagenix Fruits and Isagenix Greens add flavor to the BBB without excess calories or sugar. In addition, they provide valuable phytochemicals from fruits and vegetables.

Some popular combinations used with the BBB are Vanilla IsaPro and Isagenix Fruits, and IsaPro Chocolate and Greens. SuperMix™ is another option to boost nutrition and flavor that is delicious mixed with any variety of IsaPro.

Complementary Products

These popular complementary products help provide your body with the right amounts of nutrients to support overall health. They include the IsaOmega with fish-derived omega-3 essential fatty acids, and FiberPro, which adds prebiotic fiber, designed to support digestive health and promote regularity, or Adaptogen Elixir to help the body better adapt to everyday stress.

Renewal Sleep Support  

Scientific research has identified a significant link between inadequate sleep and weight gain (4). Making adequate sleep a priority is an important step in reaching your weight loss goals that many people overlook. Renewal Sleep Support contributes by helping to promote a restful, complete night’s sleep with natural ingredients including melatonin and chamomile flower extract. (Note: This product is not to be included in the BBB drink itself!)

Preparing the BBB

The bottom line of the BBB is that by supplementing your nighttime regimen with the high-quality undenatured whey protein or plant-based protein in IsaPro and using the Renewal Sleep Support before bedtime, you can help your body transform your waistline while enjoying a good night’s rest.

Here are the simple steps for preparing the BBB.

Instructions: 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime is the ideal time to prepare your BBB.

  1. With an IsaBlender vessel, shaker cup, or regular blender, combine 4 or 5 ounces of water, IsaPro, Fruits or Greens. Because the mix foams rapidly, shake the vessel vigorously before blending.
  2. Blend all of the ingredients for 30 to 60 seconds.
  3. If desired, add a few ice cubes and re-blend.Enjoy this nutrient- and protein-dense bedtime treat followed by Renewal Sleep Support. And don’t forget IsaOmega, Fiber Pro (blended with your BBB), or Adaptogen Elixir if these products meet your needs.
