Meet my friend Trisha. She loves to fly so much that when she’s not a private corporate jet pilot, she can be found winging her way across the country working as a flight attendant.
Trisha is a healthy woman in her 40’s who is passionate about staying in shape. She loves to walk or bike to the beach and then swims in the ocean to stay in shape. She is energetic and enthusiastic and loves new adventures.
Working as a pilot and as a flight attendant, Trisha is always on the go. From working through pre-flight checklists, monitoring weather conditions and flight plans, and making sure the jets are safe and ready to fly, she doesn’t have time to hunt out healthy, high protein meals and snacks in airports big and small. Her go to nutritious choice, that’s portable and packable is Ensure High Protein.
Why muscle health is so important
Although Trisha is constantly on her feet, she was still concerned about losing muscle mass as she gets older. In fact after 40, adults lose up to 8% of muscle mass per decade. Our muscles aren’t just important for running, exercise and posture, they also help regulate our energy and glucose levels. When Trisha discovered Ensure High Protein (and its 16 grams of protein and host of nutrients), she found an option that fuels her needs for energy and endurance. And her days have really taken off.
Having healthy and strong muscles also help our bodies recover from injuries and illness and promote wound healing. Trisha recently strained her wrist and is now even more diligent about getting her protein. The hard part for her and most of us is finding time to shop and cook high protein foods, and if you travel as Trisha does, then finding healthy proteins while out and about can be a real challenge.
Ensure High Protein comes in a conveniently slim bottle and doesn’t spoil, which makes it ideal to throw in a suitcase or overnight back pack. Trisha always throws a few extras in her bag so that when she gets in late or is delayed, she can rely on having a high protein, tasty, and nutritious pick me up.
When at home, Trisha also likes to freeze a bottle of Ensure High Protein and puts it in her bag for the day. In the afternoon, when she is ready for some extra fuel, her bottle of Ensure is melted, icy cold, and ready to enjoy!
Any busy traveler, or on the go individual can take a page from Trisha’s flight plan and improve their daily routine by adding in Ensure High Protein!
