Protein is an important macronutrient, your body needs it to function properly. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. Your body also uses protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other bodily chemicals. It is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Wow. If you didn’t eat enough protein before now maybe this will give you a couple good reasons! What if I told you I had another amazing reason to eat protein?
Well I do, and it’s called DNX Bars. DNX bars are a delicious and nutritious protein snack. They are sources from 100% grass-fed beef, grass-fed bison, and free range chicken combines with organic fruits, vegetables, superfoods, and spices. Doesn’t that just make your mouth water?
Some of the other ingredients that are used include: organic garlic (antibiotic, antioxidant, and anti-fungal properties), coconut oil (healthy fats for increased energy), organic sweet potato (high-fiber, vitamin rich, and anti-inflammatory), organic sunflower seeds (anti-carcinogen, promotes cardiovascular health), organic coconut (increases energy and good cholesterol, fight infections), organic sacha inchi (high in protein and omega 3 fatty acids), organic red pepper, crushed (improves circulation and lowers cholesterol), organic gogi berries (antioxidants and immune system support), organic fennel (anti-inflammatory for digestive health), egg whites (complete protein, cage free), organic dried tart cherries (reduces inflammation, boosts muscle recovery), organic medjool dates (natural sweetness, full of soluble fiber, vitamins, minerals), organic cumin (fights infections and aids digestion), organic chili powder (antioxidant, anti-fungal, and antibiotic), celery juice powder (preservative through naturally-occurring nitrate), organic cayenne (promotes circulatory and digestive health, fights infection), organic cardamom seeds (anti-inflammatory properties, aids digestion and circulation), organic cacao nibs (anti-oxidants, magnesium, fiber, and iron), organic black pepper (antioxidant and antibacterial properties, improves digestion), organic pecans (rich in antioxidants, bb vitamins, and minerals, increases “good” cholesterol), and organic moringa leaf (reduces inflammation and toxins, increases energy).
If that’s not a Cruise Control approved, complete protein bar, then I don’t know what is! I can pick the protein I want on any given day and get a mouthful of delicious health that my body craves!

I love innovation, I love trying new things, and I love when the companies that I love value the same thing!
This year, Killer Creamery is going to introduce ice cream with protein. 44 grams of protein, zero added sugar, and gluten free. It’s a triple threat!
I’m so happy that my kids are growing up in a world where we can eat ice cream on Sunday nights like I used to with my family, but instead of gaining weight and increasing our chances of getting diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, we actually get protein! What a world we live in.
Killer Creamery is sweetened with my favorite natural sweeteners, Xylitol, Erythritol and Stevia. These sweeteners have less calories than sugar, doesn’t spike your blood sugar levels, doesn’t cause tooth decay, is great even if you have diabetes, and is a common ingredient in oral care products, chewing gum, mints, and other candies!
Killer Creamery made it possible for me to share my favorite childhood traditions with my kids without compromising their health, and you and your kids should try it too!
The macros that I promote are 50% fat, 30% protein, and 20% carbs. That 30% is very important! Protein is necessary to maintain muscle and stay strong!
One of my favorite sources of protein are Chomps Sticks. They are delicious, convenient, come in various amazing flavors and help me attain that 30% at every meal.
Chomps makes healthy, protein packed meat snacks with just a few high-quality ingredients, sustainably sourced meat, and some natural spice. The flavors are turkey, venison, and beef!
They have no added sugar, no gluten, no soy, no artificial preservatives or colors, no GMOs, no dairy, no nitrates or nitrates added, and no fillers (like pork).
These snacks are 100% Cruise Control approved, my kids love when I put them in their lunches! They have 9-10g of protein per stick and keep them going all-day for school, sports, and hanging out with friends!

So you’ve probably heard me say to stay away from wheat, barley and rye. This is because they contain gluten. Gluten is a sticky, storage protein that is challenging for the digestive track. Our bodies don’t generally do well with gluten. While some people can tolerate it, they may find that they are very bloated after eating it. Celiac disease is on the rise and one of the main things they can’t have, is gluten.
So before your body gets to a point like this, you should actively try and take steps to decrease the amount of gluten you’re putting in your body. One of my favorite ways to do this is to replace crackers and bread at the dinner table with gluten-free bread or veggies to dip in the hummus, guacamole, or what have you.
One of my ultimate favorites that you probably never thought of, is cheese! Parm Crisps has the most amazing cheese crisps that contain 0% gluten and 100% amazing taste and the same texture as a chip.
I’ll bring bags of these around with me in case I am hungry and need a little snack, and I also crumble them and can make a type of healthy garnish if I have a meal that needs a little sometime extra, like soup perhaps!
I always have those days where I don’t have time to have a proper lunch. Sometimes I’m in Studio City for meetings then have to drive over to West Hollywood to record with my podcast team, and then I can be in Beverly Hills at the end of the day coaching clients.. It’s a lot!
What’s a quick and easy way to stop hunger in its tracks once you’re in you’re eating zone? I tell all my celebrity clients that cheese can be a great way to stop hunger when you don’t have time for a proper lunch.
My favorite cheese hack is Parm Crisps. I grab a bag and I’m ready to go. Sometimes I use this on my salad at night, or I’ll just straight up eat it out of the bag. My new favorite is their jalapeno flavor, as you know, soy Mexicano, and I do enjoy a little kick!
One of the hardest things about traveling is making sure I have healthy options! Sometimes, depending on where I go that’s hard to find.
Whether I’m going to a Tony Robbins event, or NYC to visit with my publishing team, my days are scheduled out weeks in advance with little time carved out to prepare healthy meals for myself.
One of my favorite parts of Factor 75 is that they are so convenient. Before I travel, I have my right-hand Alex order these to come to my hotel room so I can use them when I travel and am so busy and never seem to have time to even eat!
Relying on Factor 75 is easy because I know I’m getting all fresh high-quality ingredients, prepared by gourmet chefs, and I get the most for my body since I trust the in-house dietitians to nutritionally optimize each meal.
