I am trying to share a few more foodie posts with you recently. I wanted to tell you a bit about a brand I hadn’t tried before called Dr Zaks. They make tasty snacks that are high in protein so really good for you if you are a gym buff or trying to eat healthier.

The past few weeks I have really tried to cut out fatty snacks and work out more to try and improve my fitness and become a bit more toned. it is so hard to give up snacks though. This is where Dr Zaks snacks come in handy!

The cookies taste amazing and are high in protein but low in sugar and fat. They are really filling and are great as a snack after exercising(instead of a protein shake) or to just snack on during the day. My favourite is the triple chocolate, it tastes naughty like it is meant to be bad for you haha. The protein helps keep you fuller for longer 🙂

They also have a great range of protein clusters. The fruit and yogurt ones are my favourite The bag is only 128 calories and is such a handy snack to keep in your bag or desk draw. I have really noticed that by having high protein snacks I am not snacking as often as I am fuller for longer and bu limiting my snacks as well as exercising regularly I have really noticed a difference.

You can buy their products at a ton of online stores.

I was recently sent a few protein drinks to try out from Ufit. I had previously been making my own with powder and hadn’t tried pre-mixed ones before.

Ufit

The three flavours I tried were: Chocolate, Iced latte and Vanilla. I would either have a protein drink after working out or have it as a meal replacement for lunch, they are very filling!

My favourite flavour had to be the chocolate one as it just tasted like chocolate milkshake. I think these are great to take to work or the gym and are really easy and convenient, so you don’t have to faff around with your protein powder and milk/water trying to mix it without it being lumpy!

Need to get my hands on the strawberry one to try.

You can buy these in many different supermarkets or buy them in bulk online here.

At the end of January I received my package to start the Protein World 30 day challenge.  was excited and scared. I have put on nearly two stone since meeting Nick (almost four years ago) and it is about time I did something about it!

Protein World : 30 day challenge

I didn’t do this plan to become muscly and the next Instagram gym hero, I did it because I am unhappy with my body and want to get fitter.

I received: 

Slender blend powder

Porridge

Hunger buster capsules

Fat metaboliser capsules

30 day challenge booklet

I tried my best to stick to the plan as much as I could, I didn’t do the exact exercises in the book as often I did not have time, or it was not something I felt comfortable doing, but instead I have been using my exercise bike most days.

Protein World : 30 day challenge

The first few days were difficult as I was really watching what I was eating and I was having the slender blend to replace lunch but I soon got used to it and after 30 days I managed to lose 7lbs, so half a stone. 

I am a lot happy as now my tighter trousers fit me and my stomach feels smaller and not so bloated. Even though I feel better I still have a long way to go and I don’t feel happy enough to do a before and after of my body.

I think this plan is a really good idea for anyone wanting to make that change. I have already bought another tub of the slender blend as I am quite enjoying having it for lunch!

The recipes/meal plans in the booklet are really good too, lots of great snacking ideas I never though of (I am now addicted to peanut butter as it isn’t actually that bad for you?!)

I would definitely recommend the chocolate flavour slender blend and porridge 😉 Having the porridge for breakfast fills me up until lunch time, usually I am snacking again by 9am! I think by having these high protein/low calorie replacements it really has helped, but I think you really need to work out too. I mostly did my exercise bike, but if I stuck to the plan in the book I think I probably would have lost more weight and became more toned but I just want to take it easy and slowly. I am in no rush, and it is easier to do slowly.

I wasn’t too sure about taking the tablets if I am honest, I take enough medication from the doctors for migraines/skin etc I didn’t want to pump my body with more so I didn’t take them. A friend of mine decided to take them and let me know how it went. She said that she felt they made a difference, especially taking the hunger buster ones before meals, she then wasn’t wasting so much so they obviously work!

I am going to continue trying to exercise daily and to have the slender blend and hopefully notice more of a difference in another month!

At the moment you can buy this for £72 which may sound a lot but in reality it replaces two meals a day and if you think what you usually spend on breakfast/lunch I think it works out cheaper 😉 More info abut the chocolate one can be found here.

You can also use the slender blend in different recipes, not just as a drink if you prefer, so you can pretty much tailor the whole plan to suit you.
