Thoughts On MyProtein

Thoughts On MyProtein
Taking protein was something I never really understood but was always curious to know more about. I used to watch my boyfriend consume a protein shake every other day to put on weight or to help with muscle pain but, I still didn't understand the whole concept behind them. I have regularly been going to the gym for quite some time and thought now was the perfect time to give MyProtein a try and see if they make a difference.

MyProtein is definitely a website to check out if you are interested in protein or wanting to up your fitness game. They sell a variety of products from powders to clothing at high quality at the lower prices!. What makes this company stand out for me is their range for women. A lot of fitness websites are targeted more towards men, whereas MyProtein offer a range for both. The website is so easy and helpful to use, offering a variety of products for different goals.

Impact Whey Protein Cookie Dough Flavour | I have tried protein shakes before but didn't really enjoy the taste so I decided to opt for something more sweetening. I consume one of these protein shakes half an hour before or after a workout (mostly before as I eat a meal after). This flavour tastes exactly like a cookie dough milkshake you can hardly taste the protein, however it can be a bit sickly and incredibly filling. It definitely has helped with regards to any muscle pain but other then that I haven't noticed a difference.

Protein Chocolate Wafers | I was very excited to try these as a pre or post gym snack rather than constantly have a shake. They taste exactly like a chocolate wafer would very delicious and they definitely fill you up for a few hours but, they leave an awful aftertaste in your mouth. I tried drinking water, brushing my teeth but that aftertaste does not leave my mouth! If it wasn't for the aftertaste I would say these are amazing but the taste put me off unfortunately.

Protein Cookie | This double chocolate cookie tasted very yummy and left no aftertaste in my mouth. I ate this before a workout probably not the best decision and it filled me for hours! I would definitely try these again and have them as a pre workout snack. The only downside I had was it tasted very soft, almost stale but I'd imagine it is because it is made with protein.

Strawberry and Banana Smoothie | I love smoothies so I was very excited to try this sample even if it was in a powder formula. I really liked the taste of this, very refreshing and filling. Perfect as a breakfast smoothie or as an evening drink to cool down after the gym with. Tastes very fruity and could hardly taste the protein thankfully.

Overall I would say MyProtein was fun to try out and there are a couple of bits I would try again and a few bits on their website I like the sound of. I think once you are used to the protein taste it becomes an everyday part of your diet. I have noticed a difference in how my body feels I am a lot more energetic when I workout and I don't get as tired as quick. I also feel like I rarely get as much muscle pain. You can follow MyProtein on Twitter here where they offer a wide range of advice.

I have a wonderful 30% off discount for you all to use on MyProtein's website: BLOGGER

  5. I haven't tried it myself but my boyfriend uses it. The shakes don't appeal to me but the protein cookies look great, going to have to try some of these when I get back to the gym in a few weeks!

  6. I've never tried protein in my life but thank you so much for describing its effect on you & sharing your own experience, Katie. I definitely could do with feeling more energetic 'cause I've been feeling stripped of energy lately (maybe 'cause I need a holiday).
    Starting gym 2nd week of Sep & might consider protein. Thank you for sharing :)
