As most of you will know now for the past 5 weeks I've been on a mission to lose my baby weight and get myself fit and healthy. I've been trying out lots of different products lately so I thought I'd write a post telling you about my favourite items that have helped me lose 8lbs in 5 weeks.
For breakfast I've been having a meal replacement shake as I don't always have time to make something to eat. I've been trying out the Superdrug Meal Replacement Powder in Banana Flavour and it's really nice, you just make it up with semi-skimmed milk and it's only 234 calories. It also comes in Chocolate and Strawberry flavour and is perfect if you're in a rush like me.
My favourite t-shirt to workout in is this Royal British Legion Running T-Shirt, it's really light weight and comfortable to run in and it dries really quickly when you sweat so you don't feel all soggy and damp after a workout. The Royal British Legion sell a range of sportswear in their online shop The Poppy Shop where all profits go towards caring and campaigning for our armed forces and their families.
I've been trying out different protein shakes to have after my workouts, I liked the Purition BodySculpt Shake but I found the bits in it a little strange to drink. It's a 100% natural, high protein and high fibre wholefood shake so it's perfect if you're trying to eat clean like me and it can also be used as a meal replacement shake.
I've also tried out the Good Hemp Nutrition Active Shake, this was very similar to the Purition Shake but the taste wasn't as nice, but again it's 100% natural and reduces bloating which for women is great. It helps with muscle recovery and improves overall wellbeing. I love the fact that it fits in so well with my new lifestyle where I'm trying to eat as clean as possible and also stops my muscles from feeling too tired after working out.
I've been really loving these Fruyo Fat Free Greek Yoghurts, they come in a range of flavours and they're absolutely yummy! My favourites are the Blueberry and the Lemon flavours. They're fat free, gluten free, high in protein and suitable for vegetarians and pregnant women. You can find them in most leading supermarkets.
I've been using a great website to help with my dieting, www.weightlossresources.co.uk offers some really useful tools for healthy weight loss like a calorie counter, a food diary so you can keep track of what you're eating and lots of delicious and healthy recipes to help you lose weight the right way. I've found it really helps me to keep a food diary as it's so easy to just eat and eat and not really realise what you've had, when you can see everything laid out on the screen you realise when you're eating too much and where you need to cut down.
Lastly I've been loving the FTN Citrus Drinks, they're a 60ml shot filled with all the essential nutrients that your body needs to help support it's natural cell renewal process. It contains wholefood ingredients, zero stimulants and is only 27 calories per shot. I've been having one every morning to give me a boost and I've been feeling great.
