Diabetic Artist Finds the Perfect Meal Replacement – and is Shocked by the Results

We all lead busy lives these days.

In the time-pressured priority shuffle, nutrition often gets lost.

Enter the meal replacement industry for a quick and easy solution. In just a few minutes you get plenty of protein, broad-spectrum nutrition, and you’re satisfied for a few hours. One drink and you’re free to go about your day without worrying about nutrition or energy.

Except that it’s not so easy for all of us.

For many people, food is a minefield, littered with danger and health consequences. And this unregulated area of meal replacements is one of the most challenging to navigate.

And it’s all because of one little ingredient manufacturers sneak into so-called “health” products. 

Problems with Most Meal Replacements/Shakes

Of course, we are talking about sugar.

Sugar is so omnipresent in our food supply it’s practically invisible, save those carefully monitoring their glucose levels. Just try a ketogenic diet and you will quickly become aware of how sugar dominates our taste buds.

Our culture is addicted to sugar – it acts on the same neural centers that drive addiction to more dangerous substances like opioids. Sugar is in virtually every single processed food: cereal, yogurt, salad dressing, processed meat, bread, and yes, meal replacements and protein shakes.

The average protein powder on the market contains a whopping 13 grams of sugar per serving. That is the equivalent of 3 spoonful’s in every single serving!

Major Concern for Health-Conscious Diabetics

Beyond dietary choices, however, the situation is even more challenging for people with diabetes. For them, it’s not a matter of preference. Monitoring their sugar levels is a necessity.

Of course, they still have the same daily pressures as the rest of us. What options, then, do diabetics have for a fast, protein-packed meal on that won’t jack up their glucose levels?

This was the same search successful multimedia artist Bodhi Elfman was on for years.

Blown Away by The Surprising Results

Bodhi is a type 1 diabetic. This form of diabetes develops in childhood, so he’s no stranger to watching his sugar intake.

Throughout his career, he tried many different diets, protocols, and products that might fit his both fast-paced, creative lifestyle, as well as his dietary requirements.

The results were hit and miss, but the few protein powders that worked for him tasted like aspartame-flavored chalk.

And then he came across PerfectAmino Power Meal.

It has no sugar and the equivalent of 47g of whey protein per serving! That fact alone got him curious.

Then he saw it was packed with nutrition and only had half the calories of his regular breakfast. It was worth a test.

You can hear his own words here:

Not only did it keep him full and give him the energy he needed for hours, but it tasted good. No strange chalky aftertaste. No artificial chemical sweeteners.

And most important, no sugar!

The biggest surprise, however, came later as he monitored his blood sugar levels over the next hour:

They dropped.

Power Meal had zero effect on blood glucose levels. And without solid food in his stomach, his blood sugar slowly dropped, almost as if he were fasting. He was so surprised he wrote a letter to Dr. Minkoff.

Try a whey protein powder and not only will your insulin spike but so will your inflammatory markers and gut permeability. Add to that the fact that whey protein is only 18% utilized by your body – so for every 20g of whey, a meager 3g goes to build and repair your body.

Not so great for optimal health.

How can something taste good, give you protein, even taste sweet, and still have no net effect on glucose? How is this even possible?

How it Works: 3 Secrets to Zero Rise in Blood Sugar

The secret of Power Meal comes down to 3 primary ingredients.

Secret #1 is our proprietary formula of amino acids, PerfectAmino. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. When you take our unique formula of 8 essential amino acids, they are already in their most basic form. There is no digestion required, like with whey or other protein powders. This means the protein is absorbed immediately into your system. Studies show that the amino acids in Perfect Amino hit your bloodstream in less than 20 minutes after you take them.

This proprietary formula maximizes amino acid utilization, so every last drop (minus 1%) gets used to make actual protein – i.e., muscle. Not only is this more efficient use of your money, but it also saves you from the kidney issues that can crop up in people who eat high protein diets like the Atkins diet.

Secret #2 is a rare carbohydrate called Carb10. You need carbs for energy. A 100% carb-free diet creates long-term problems, so you need to get them from somewhere to keep your energy levels high. Carb10 is isolated from peas and has a unique molecular structure so that it does not affect your blood glucose levels. It is processed directly in your tissues instead of the liver.

No blood sugar spike. No insulin-induced crash. Just pure energy available immediately.

And best of all? Carb10 doesn’t cause bloating like many other carbs.

Secret #3 lies hidden inside a rare African fruit, called the Katemfe fruit.


This fruit comes from deep in the West African rainforests and contains a rare protein called Thaumatin. It has been used by West Africans for millennia to sweeten corn breads and sour fruits, as well as a welcome additive to their-often bitter palm wine.

Because it is a protein and not an actual carbohydrate, it enhances the flavor without increasing blood sugar or insulin levels. It’s how we get such a rich, creamy, full-bodied flavor without any chemicals or strange “fake sweetener aftertaste.”

Katemfe creates the perfect balance between something that tastes great but doesn’t disrupt your blood sugar levels.

More Than a “Protein Powder”

Power Meal is not just an amino acid-based “protein powder.” As the name suggests, it is a full meal. Just like a proper meal, it has a broad spectrum of nutrition, including:

  • MCT Oil for ketone energy and hyper-focus
  • 100% organic fruit and vegetable extracts rich in flavonoids, polyphenols, and micronutrients
  • Complete range of essential and trace minerals for optimal cellular health
  • Superfood blend including nutritional powerhouses like Moringa, Green Tea, Wheatgrass, Spirulina, and Alfalfa
  • Saw Palmetto Extract for hormonal balance
  • 14 Essential Vitamins, including Methyl-Folate for maximum bioavailability regardless of your genotype.

Let’s not forget everyone’s favorite… Raw Cacao.

The Unseen Effects of Heartburn and Indigestion Medications
The Unseen Effects of Heartburn and Indigestion Medications

by Dr. David Minkoff July 16, 2019 5 min read

The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein.

If you watch much TV, you’ve undoubtedly seen a heartburn medication commercial at some point. The makers of Pepcid and Zantac confidently tell us we can eat a hoagie with sausage and peppers and not feel any heartburn. How wonderful!

Except these commercials send the wrong message. They indoctrinate the public to believe the answer to their problem is another drug: “I’ll take this, and I’ll be fine.”

This mindset ignores the root causes of heartburn and indigestion and sends us down the wrong treatment pathway. In my experience, when people understand how stomach acid aids our digestion, they’re less likely to turn to a medication that blocks the production of stomach acid. They want their body to functional normally.

The Science of Protein Utilization (What actually happens when you consume protein)
The Science of Protein Utilization (What actually happens when you consume protein)

Trying to get enough protein into your body to increase lean muscle mass, recovery and endurance?

STOP.

It’s not a matter of how much protein you're consuming — but how much your body is able to use.

And depending on what protein sources you're using... that may not be very much.

But what's even worse? What the unused protein gets turned into. (Hint: It starts with an S and ends with UGAR.)

... Yeah, it gets turned into carbs (glucose) or stored as fat. 

But let's back up. Because to understand the above you need to understand what protein actually is, and more importantly, what happens when it enters your body.

The Unknown Link Between Protein, Beauty Concerns, and Menopause
The Unknown Link Between Protein, Beauty Concerns, and Menopause

by Dr. David Minkoff July 09, 2019 4 min read

The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein.

What’s the common link between menopause and beauty concerns (sagging skin, hair loss) in women who are aging? It might surprise you to learn it’s a lack of protein.

One study showed that over a month’s period of time, adding an essential amino acid blend (amino acids are critical for making protein in the body) to a 2,000 calorie diet of mainly vegetables and some fruits plus walking for an hour a day resulted in significant weight loss without sagging skin under the chin or in other areas of the body.

Amino acids also help women mitigate the effects of menopause. During menopause, falling levels of hormones cause lean body tissue to begin to break down. Loss of bone, skin collagen, muscle mass, brain cells, and neurotransmitters all lead to more rapid aging, and the feeling that one is getting old. Wrinkles, weakness, osteoporosis, sagging skin, and a loss of energy occurs—all things women want to avoid.
