FRS Review and Giveaway


The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of FRS.

My first experience with FRS was a few years ago after a hot, hot, hot run in Chicago. The race finished on the beach, there was no shade and we were spent. FRS was a vendor and their drinks were like a mirage – cold and surprisingly tasty.  I think I had about 3 – one might have been used as an ice pack to just cool my face!

About a month ago, FRS asked me to review a few of their products - Healthy Energy beverages, chews and powered drink mix. And, added bonus, giveaway their (??) on our blog. Since I’m training in Florida (hot, humid, hot) for the month and knowing how their drink saved me in Chicago, I said yes.

FRS sent me 6 Healthy Energy Drinks. I used the drinks after workouts (hot, humid and sweaty runs) and in the afternoons as a pick-me-up. I brought the orange powder with me on a trip- I love easy access powders when I’m traveling that I can just drop into a water bottle, shake and drink. I made the mistake of drinking one of the drinks when it was only somewhat cold – big mistake! These drinks need to be ice cold (kinda like coconut water in my opinion). My stomach was upset after drinking it. When it’s cold, I loved it.

FRS produces a full line of products, including ready-to-drink beverages, chews, powdered drink mix and concentrate. Their products deliver energy and immune system support. It’s made with vitamins, green tea extracts and the antioxidant Quercetin, which is found in the skins of blueberries, red apples and grapes. What’s cool about this product is that is was originally developed by a team of health scientists for chemotherapy patients.  The main ingredient, Quercetin, has been demonstrated, in multiple clinical trials, to provide sustained energy, increased endurance, and immune system support.  FRS products are available at GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and

What I think is great:

-The ready-to-drink Healthy Energy drinks – great variety of flavors and little aftertaste.

-Flavor variety – there’s a bunch of different flavors and I liked them all.

-Easy access – shake, open and drink or pour!

-Sustained energy – no crashing 20-60 minutes after drinking.

What I think could be improved:

-The orange powder – the aftertaste wasn’t my cup of tea.

-The color -it’s neon yellow, which kinda freaks me out so I didn’t look at it!

-The soft chews – Overall, the taste was okay – a little chalky for my liking though. I’m not a fan of a lot of chews or gels in general because my stomach doesn’t handle them very well.

Diet To Go Review

Meghan recently tried Diet To Go. Here is her review of her 3 days on their Traditional Meal Plan.

I have always dreamed of having a personal chef because I don’t cook. I don’t enjoy it nor do I have the patience. Last week, I tried Diet To Go, a food delivery service that specializes delivering healthy, tasty meals to your door. I choose the Traditional meal plan of 1200 calories (there are two calorie options: 1200 recommended for women or 1600 recommended for men).  There are two other choices as well: Vegetarian and Low Carb. You can choose between 5 and 7 day plans that include all 3 meals per day, or just lunch and dinner. They ship weekly and the food is delivered in a cooler with freezer packs so the food stays fresh. There are different menus weekly, offering a nice variety of meals and they allow you to substitute in case you don’t like specific meals.

Overall, I enjoyed the meals and the plan.  I liked how simple it was to heat them up. They recommended a microwave but since I don’t have one, I either used the stove or stove top. I continued to workout normally, thus, I added 2-3 snacks a day (almonds, grapefruit, banana handful of pretzels). Diet To Go offers suggestions for those people unsure of healthy snacks. The meals were extremely tasty and filling. They are so much better than the conventional frozen diet meals that you can buy in the store. Most of the meals I tried used whole, natural ingredients.


  1. Tasty, seasoned food.
  2. Filling (I couldn’t finish a few of the meals).
  3. Substitutions for food you don’t like or for food allergies (I did not like the Creole Shrimp Stew, I’d definitely swap that out).
  4. Option to order all 3 meals or just lunch and dinner (this is the option I’d choose next time).
  5. The shelf life of the meals is about a week, if kept at the proper temperature, or you can freeze them for up to a month.


  1. Heavy meals – I felt really full even when I didn’t finish all of the meal.
  2. A few meals were really smelly (the salmon was not a good idea for lunch – if I had been working in an office, I wouldn’t have been liked that day!)
  3. High sodium content.

I would definitely recommend this program to friends and clients who are looking for easy ways to have nutritious, easy and tasty meals. I will most likely do this program again because of its ease but I will definitely substitute meals.
