IBFIT Bites!

First of all, I shed 1.5 pounds this week...YAY! I am now at 63 pounds down and counting!

I'm writing today to tell you about a wonderful new source of nutrition in my life. I want you all to have some too!!! My trainer, Kathi Potts, has been experimenting with recipes for nutrition bars. She and I had been sharing ideas and she has created an awesome new approach to nutrition "bars". Her email address is I may have mentioned before that she is a 5 time Ironman athelete with countless marathons, half Ironman races and a zillion triathalons. She is simpy an elite level athelete along with being an awesome fitness coach to me and others. She was experimenting with recipes that would fuel her for her grueling workouts. She has hit on an awesome winner!!!!

So she created a "bar" that is bite size. She packages them in bags of different sizes. Each piece is about 1"x1". 4-5 "bites" equals about 100 calories. So I portion them out for mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks portions. The "bites" are gluten free, dairy free, very low fat and very low sugar. She makes them with oatmeal, peanut butter, seeds, dried fruit, and some nuts. She sweetens with brown rice syrup (my idea!) which has a low glycemic index.

They taste amazing! Let me know if you want to try them. Kathi and I are planning to move towards commercialization of the IBFIT Bites! An exciting journey ahead!

Desire, determination and discipline - hope it pays off with our upcoming venture!
