Yes, I know - it should be a lifestyle change rather than a quick fix etc. One day I will get to that stage but I am human and I struggle with self discipline. I'm guessing I am not the only one out their and I have SERIOUS respect for all those of you that eat clean and healthy all the time - you are my inpso.
Anyway! PhD Woman specialise in providing protein products especially for females knowing that obviously our goals are not always the same as mens!
So when I was stocking up on protein (not quite but re-venturing into the world of protein shakes etc) earlier this year when trying a new intensive strength training plan, I really researched what would work for me and what I wanted, which was quite a lot of protein without a shed load of carbs because no matter what I eat it always seems I have a carb heavy diet despite my best efforts!
I found PhD Woman and had a read up of them here. I found they had loads of tips and meal plans etc (here) and decided I was going to try these products. (They also have some fabulous offers on and I managed to catch one at the time!) I chose the Toning range which aims to help with recovery. There is also a weight control and energy range.
I like to have these on days when I might not be getting enough protein and I know some people say why can't you just eat it, but if you are training a lot you'd never stop eating chicken to get the recommended amount and sorry but chicken gets boring!
The vanilla creme is absolutely delightful. Tastes like custard! I like to have it alone with water and ICE, or for breakfast blended with strawberries or bananas! Absolute heaven in a cup!
The bars are also lovely. They do have that protein bar texture which I can't quite describe but I'd say dense… You will understand if you try. I have to say I don't mind that texture though so it's not a negative. I usually break it up into little pieces and savour!
Finally, the cup is just super handy and I better size than those huge ones you usually get. Somehow it just feels more feminine also. I've not had to explain to people whether or not I am drinking protein like it's some crazy thing since having this cup which is also a bonus!
I would definitely recommend all these products and I will be repurchasing when I run out. Even if you don't want to buy anything though I would definitely recommend the website as it's super informative!
Happy fitness ladies!
