Sponsored: Ensure “Can Do People” Modify Health Plans and Make Them Work

I’m a sponsored blog partner for Ensure, but all opinions contained in this post are my own


Recently, I shared my story with you in THIS POST about Ensure Can Do People, and confessed to waiting much later in life to take my health seriously.  I was right at age sixty when I began to go to the gym for me…and not to watch a child playing sports! Waiting later in life brought many “challenges” and I ended up persevering through a couple of significant workout-related-injuries. It would have been so easy to quit, but I was determined to turn my life around…no matter what my birth certificate said. Now, (knock-on-wood) I have seen a significant length of time without another injury mostly because I now know the way to prepare before and after workout and exactly how much I can do.

I told my trainer I was going to make a tee shirt which said, “MODIFY THE MODIFICATIONS!”  I do strength training with a group of super women. They are in much better shape than I, so I am always modifying the workouts they have been given in order not to be injured again….and sometimes, I have to modify the modification given!  But, as I get stronger, I do that less.  I have learned than less is more and as long as I persevere and keep going, I will see results.

Ensure High Protein Shake is a perfect modification on the days we do not have time to make a super smoothie concoction or cook a diet plan meal.  This is a great tasting high protein drink. Ensure nutrition drinks are scientifically-formulated with nutrients, and 23 essential vitamins and minerals to fill any nutrition gaps, giving adults the strength and energy needed.

That’s a pretty reliable and significant modification to any post workout protein drink. Ensure High Protein is a drink designed for us at this time of life in order to help us feel better, youthful, vibrant, and strong. The benefits of protein are so important. That added strength and nutrition makes such a difference.   Give it a try and let me know what you think!

I welcome all assistance because I plan to be one of those eighty-year-old women impressing people at the gym twenty years from now!

  1. Well Pam, I buy it all the time (albeit the ‘regular’ Ensure) for my mom, so I’ve never thought of getting it for myself. (She loves it!) I think my problem was thinking it was for people who don’t get the proper nutrition or make poor food choices and need some help in that way. I do realize that protein makes us feel fuller (a good thing), but I never thought of it for our age group! I’m being honest here. I do notice in the ads on t.v. now, they are showing younger people! Like you, I plan to stay active and vibrant till I draw my last breath, so I will grab a bottle and give it a try. I know they come in 6-packs, but I’ve seen singles… ; )

    1. Karen, I think all of us thought of Ensure in the same way. The High Protein one is the one I have been discussing for post workout. It is a great alternative to grab on the days I cannot make the smoothie. You are wise to try it out and see what you think!
