‘For all but the last few hundred years (a heartbeat on the genetic evolution time scale), really sweet foods have been difficult to find.’ – David Gillespie
Sugar… It’s a delicate topic. Unless you’ve been living in a cave lately, you will know that sugar has been copping a lot of flack from the media over recent times (and rightly so I feel). But even with all this media attention, it still washes over many people’s heads and gets thrown into the all too hard basket, with my mate included.

Carly Halliday – Personal Trainer, Sydney
Finally a product that doesn’t scare me into thinking I will become the ‘Incredible Hulk’. I work out a lot as a Personal Trainer, group instructor and exercise lover and without 180 I don’t think I would make it through the week. It is the first female friendly natural protein supplement I’ve found that aids in my weight loss and maintenance, muscle recovery and increased energy levels. Adding 180 to my daily smoothies and other meals keeps me fuller for longer as the energy is released slower and ultimately stops me from those naughty cravings and weight gain. I struggled to find protein powder for women. It’s my new best friend and don’t know what I would do without it.

What’s The best way to take 180 For A Meal Replacement or Weight Loss?
Our favourite method is to make a smoothie or shake, as it won’t dissolve like regular protein powders, due to the fact it’s real raw protein food at it’s finest. We recommend taking it with milk, soy milk, natural yoghurt etc, or simply shake/stir or drink! Or you can sprinkle it on salads, make muffins, as it’s a raw product it’s very diverse! View the videos here.
We suggest that if you want to lose body fat and sustain/improve good health, exercising a minimum of 3 times a week and eating 4-6 small meals a day, and 1-3 of those meals should ideally be replaced with a serving of 180. If you have cereal or toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch etc, or any processed carbohydrate, simply replace these with a serving of 180 and use as a meal replacement. You’ll be amazed at the difference.

Learn More About Weight Loss Misconceptions
We don’t like the word weight loss. As there are many things that make up a persons overall weight, not just the body fat. So standing on the scales alone will only tell a small part of the story.
Generally, when people “diet”, they reduce the quantity of the food they eat, and this can have a very negative effect on the body. They may lose some weight, but it is not necessarily body fat they will lose, it is what makes up the rest of the body, which is known as fat free mass. Our muscle tissue, organs, water, blood and bone mass.
So our body gets compromised, and our muscle mass atrophies (breaks down). The end result is less overall weight, but the same amount of body fat and less muscle mass, and a persons health under stress.
We like to encourage a healthy life style and fat loss is a result of a healthier you! 180 superfood can be used as an integral part of your daily lifestyle to good health. Making it the perfect meal replacement shake.
The Key To Better Health
In plain English, eat protein, natural fats and low glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates for each meal. It should be high fibre, organic when possible, all your garden vegetables, especially greens, certain low GI fruits (berries are good), unprocessed meets, nuts, seeds, little starch and NO SUGAR!
Food is perishable, and not made to be processed, it was designed that way. Anything with an extra long shelf life is probably processed, be suspicious. Modern diets are ill suited for our genetic composition. Evolution has not kept pace with the advances in agriculture and food processing resulting in a plague of health problems for modern man.
If you follow these simple rules to food, and combine them with exercise, you’ll be amazed with the results. Your body will be extremely grateful.
Tania Flack – Naturopath, Sydney
In a market flooded with protein powders and supplements that are filled with artificial flavourings and chemicals it is great to find a product that I can reccomend to my patients that is based on quality natural ingredients and manufactured to the highest standards. The usual Australian diet is high in refined carbohydrates which encourages an unhealthy muscle to fat ratio which ultimately contributes to many disease processes. Helping patients balance their protein to carbohydrate intake makes a big difference in their health as does the extra boost in nutrients, essentials fatty acids and natural fibre that 180 nutrition provides.
I would recommend 180 nutrition to anyone who is interested in maintaining a balanced diet and achieving optimal health. Visit Tania’s site here.
180 is a Functional Food
Functional Food: Provides more than just nutritional value to a person’s diet and can help protect the human body from disease & improve health & well being.
Today in Australia, most people are starving themselves in an over abundance of food.
Well, What Do We Mean By That?
We eat what we want, not what we need- So we actually starve ourselves of the vital essential nutrients over time, and our body becomes at dis-ease. And the most common one of course is putting on fat.
We have a phobia against fat, and this usually leads to a high carbohydrate (high sugar) intake, which of course is depriving them of essential fats and proteins.
We don’t have enough recommended protein in our daily diet. Proteins are responsible for tissue repair and prevent muscle breakdown and aid growth.
We deprive ourselves of essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids help balance blood sugar levels, transport essential vitamins around the body, maintain body temperature and manufacture sex and adrenal hormones.
What is the Glycemic Index?
The glycemic index (GI) is a value based around the quality of carbohydrate foods. Using a reference value (usually pure glucose), it tells us how quickly the carbohydrate from a particular food source enters the blood stream. Glucose is given a value of 100 points, as it is a pure sugar and is considered to enter the blood stream at the fastest rate. Now, glycemic index is a very powerful tool for those with diabetes and people trying to control their weight, as it helps to define the role of a powerful hormone- insulin.
A Brief Summary of Insulin
• Insulin is a powerful hormone, which regulates levels of sugar present in blood.
• It is secreted by islet cells located within the pancreas; and when released causes carbohydrates to be consumed within the body.
• Carbohydrate (glucose) is converted to glycogen and stored within liver and muscle cells.
The body can only store a limited amount of glycogen the excess is converted to triglyceride and stored as fat.
• Insulin prevents the current fat stores being used as energy.
Eating For Optimum Health
We encourage a low GI diet. So the first thing to be done is to reduce the high sugar-starch-carbohydrate intake, thereby increasing the consumption of proteins and good fats. This is why 180 is so effective. It is Low GI, high protein, gluten free,high fibre and packed full of nutrients. Protein has minimal effect on your insulin levels and fat has none at all. In fact, fat inhibits insulin levels if eaten with Carbohydrates.
The best option for those seeking low GI foods is to return to a ‘traditional’ diet, one free of processed and refined foods. And 180 is an excellent resource that helps many people.
So let’s look at the top of the range of processed carbohydrates-
• Most supermarket bread
• Most Pasta (processed flour is used)
• Most Rice (stripped of nutrients)
What you have to understand is, practically all commercial wheat, rice, oat products etc have been refined. So what was once nutrient rich when grown, have now had the main properties stripped from them, which are the fats and proteins. This leaves just the concentrated carbohydrate/starch, which is simply sugar. We can begin to see how this is a problem in Australia as these simple sugars form the staple diet of the Western World.
So if you are someone who has high intake of these, then a good solution is to start replacing them with more nutrient rich (complex) carbohydrates.
Some alternatives are-
• Spelt bread.
• Traditional stone ground baked bread.
( you can make these from home too with stone ground flour. So it still has all it’s properties).
• Unprocessed oats. Eg- Groats oats. (Has husk still on them)
• Steel cut oats
• Rice alternative (Lentil & Chic Peas. Small amounts of brown rice with plenty of lentils added)
• Quinola (South American)
• All raw vegetables
• Organic Fruit
