I’ve been wanting to try Yoga for such a long time but where I live it never seemed to be at convenient times or places. Now I work remotely my lifestyle is much more flexible so it seemed the perfect time to try something new.
Because of my allergies I often miss out on fresh fruit and veg, which is quite frustrating and means I take a heap of supplements to make sure I’m getting all that vitamin and mineral goodness.
I’ve had OAS since I was a child, it always felt like some foods just felt “weird” to eat. It was then that I noticed that all my reactions tended to center around fresh or raw fruit and vegetables.
I wanted to reduce my meat intake but I couldn’t just cut meat out; as an amateur bodybuilder I need my protein to help me hit my goals. Plus, we’re a household that loves our steak so the chance of us giving it up entirely was very slim indeed!
I’ve recently had to schedule in a six week break from the gym, under strict orders of no training and only light cardio. The prospective of giving up the gym for any amount of time was terrifying. In the past four years the most I’ve taken off the gym is 10 days, so six weeks seemed like forever!
A few weeks ago I tried out the BioTechUSA Chocolate Toffee flavour ISO Whey and I was impressed. As promised I ordered the Hazlenut flavour to give it a whirl and let you know how it stacks up!
I spent a while researching which product to pick and opted for the Whey Isolate 90 Protein Powder in the Chocolate Salted Caramel flavour. This whey has the closest matching macro profile to what I already use – it’s actually slightly less carbs too.
Imagine my glee when I learnt that MyProtein brought out a SPECULOOS flavoured whey protein. So of course in order to make this an absolutely fair test I bought an entire packet of Lotus Biscoff, just to be sure. Science!
