I’ve spoken about my diet and weight on my blog before, but never really gone in depth on methods I have used and things that have worked or failed. Although I no longer go to the gym, I still work out five times and week and try to eat as healthily as possible. Despite seeing some results, I’m still looking for new ways to stay healthy and lose weight so I can reach my goal. I recently received the 14 Day Weight Loss Kit* from Nutribuddy and decided to share some of my first impressions of the kit after unboxing everything and trying a few products out.
WHAT YOU GET
Sculpting Whey Shake
Hunger Fix tablets
Little Book of Weight Loss
MY FIRST IMPRESSION
The Sculpting Whey Shake is used every day and in plenty of the shakes in the recipe book. One thing I liked is that the protein comes with a scooper inside, so you don’t have to struggle with measurements each time. The resealable bag is to be stored in a cool dry place, and features plenty of protein to be used of a long period of time – I’m certain it will last me more than two weeks with every day use. I love that the Whey Shake comes in two flavours (I chose vanilla because yummm) and can be used with water or milk in your daily shake. The taste is true to vanilla, but isn’t so overbearing or grainy that it’s a struggle to swallow.
The Hunger Fix tablets are to be taken three times a day, an hour before meals with at least one glass of water. I didn’t think these tablets were that effective at first, but after a day or two with meals I found that they do help me to feel fuller even if the meal isn’t that big or calorie-packed. This is really accommodating, as I used to always struggle with proportions. If I didn’t feel full, I would literally just snack until I did. That’s why I also quite like the Multivitamin tablets – which are taken once a day with food. Amazingly, I’ve seen very slight improvements in my skin which I’m sure will continue more over the next week or so. The tablets are easy to swallow, it’s just remembering to take them!
The Shaker Bottle comes in two colours, red and black – I chose red. I immediately thought this was just for water, but after reading, I realised this can be used for the Sculpting Shake, I have also used it for my smoothies (two of my favourites I’ll be sharing soon)! The bottle is a good size and strong enough to be carried around and washed over and over again. Inside, there’s a spiralled metal ball which is incredibly convenient when mixing the Sculpting Whey with water or milk. Trying it without the ball inside is a bad idea (been there, done that), as it quickly mixes everything together with little effort and gets rid of any chunks.
Finally, the Little Book of Weight Loss and Recipe Book are much better than I thought they would be. I have received diet kits before, and the books with them have either been little leaflets that provide absolutely no information, or textbooks that are all text and technical jargon. The Little Book of Weight Loss gives a good explanation of each product, how they help and what they actually contain; from Whey Protein to Glucomannan. It also has a FAQ page, and eating plan for anyone who wants to use the recipes from the book for every meal. Speaking of recipes, the book by Nutribuddy contains breakfast, shake, lunch, dinner and healthy treats recipes and ideas that are all easy to make with ingredients that are easy to access. I’m so eager to try out some of the treat ideas! There’s nothing more annoying that trying to eat healthy but not being able to find or afford crazy exotic foods – this book has great meal options that are filling and go well with the products.
As mentioned before, I’ve been using the Sculpting Whey protein every day with milk, and absolutely love it. It’s so simple! All you do is take 30 grams (which is three scoops) of power, drop it in the bottle and add milk or water before shaking. I’ve found that the shake is really filling, and with the rest of the weight loss kit, I’ve been eating less already and it’s only been a few days.
Have you ever tried any Nutribuddy products? Did you see any results?
