Kathleen Tesori’s Favorite Products

Multivitamins

Opti-Women by Optimum Nutrition & NOW Prenatal Gels + DHA

“It can be tough to get all the essential vitamins and minerals I need through food each day, so I take a multivitamin to try and achieve complete nutrition. I have tried many brands and I really like NOW and Optimum Nutrition multivitamins because they delivers everything you need in one serving a day, once a day. I’ve noticed a positive difference in my hair and nail growth and strength since using these products.”

Protein Shakes

Her Whey by NLA for Her & MRM 100% All Natural Whey

“Protein shakes are easy for on-the-go nutrition. They are are great for a healthy, inexpensive, and convenient meal: good-quality, tasty protein powders range in price from .89 to $2.00 per serving. Put a scoop in a baggie and carry it with you in your purse, book bag, or car. It’s easy to pack it along on trips or have a few servings at work. I look for powders that are high in protein, have great taste and texture, are gluten and lactose free, and have little to no preservatives. Real food is always my first choice, but with work and a busy schedule it is not always a convenient option. I usually have 2-3 per day. Two of my favorite proteins are NLA for Her (Chocolate Éclair) and MRM.”

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)

MAN ISO-Amino & NLA for Her Her Aminos

“I drink BCAAs before and during my training to prevent the breakdown of muscle. Most of the time I am dieting or on a lower calorie intake to keep a lean, shredded physique for events. Even though I am dieting and on a lower calorie meal plan, I still need to go to the gym and work hard. This kind of lifestyle puts you at risk of losing muscle because your body may break down the muscle and use it as energy to help get you through your workout. BCAAs help prevent this breakdown cycle and also help combat fatigue. I combine BCAAAs and L-Carnitine before cardio sessions or strength workouts.”
