Last month I was sent some products to help me with my new fitness regime. I joined the gym in January and I’ve really enjoyed getting fitter and trying new exercises. I’m combining a mixture of cardio and weights to help me loose some weight and tone up. I have a beach break in Mexico coming up at the end of April so I’m trying to loose weight for then. I’ve been trying out some fitness products from Herbalife, read on to find out what products I’ve tried.
To make: Mix one sachet with 300ml water
Exercising can cause you to loose electrolytes through sweating, which is why these sachets are so useful. They help keep you hydrated and are easy to chuck in with your gym kit. One of the best things about this product is that it’s calorie free! The sachets also contain B vitamins which can help you feel more awake. They even have magnesium in which contributes to electrolyte balance and helps reduce tiredness and fatigue. Whilst I’ve been using them I’ve been feeling more energised and the electrolytes seem to have reduced the amount of headaches I get. If you don’t always drink enough water then I’d recommend using these for added hydration and a bit of a boost.
CR7 Drive – açai berry flavour
To make: Mix one sachet with 500m of water
These sachets are great for taking to the gym with you and drinking whilst exercising. This carbohydrate-electrolyte solution contributes to the maintenance of endurance performance and each sachet is less than 100 calories. It tastes a bit like berry squash and I have been feeling more energised since taking these. However I can’t say for sure whether these are helping me exercise for longer as I’ve only just started exercising regularly.
Chocolate protein bars
The bars are great for chucking in your bag for just after a workout or whenever you feel peckish. They taste of chocolate and vanilla and are very chewy like most other protein bars I’ve tried. I’ve found that the protein in these does help you feel fuller for longer, compared to other snacks.
Vanilla protein powder
To make: Mix two scoops with 250ml semi skimmed milk
This protein powder is a good meal substitute and it’s great for having before a workout, especially if you don’t have time to make food. It tastes creamy and thick, I personally prefer some other vanilla protein powders that I’ve tried before, but they also have some other flavours available and their cookie’n’cream shake sounds delicious!
