Your New Diet Secret
If you’re cutting calories, one of the hardest things to overcome is a sweet tooth. There’s only so many times you can tell yourself that a fruit salad is just as good before you start dreaming of puddings.
Diets and desserts just don’t mix, right? Wrong! Next time your sugar cravings are driving you up the wall, give the ActiveWomen Protein Dessert a go. Your taste buds (and waistline) will thank you.
Burn Off The Calories
One portion of Active Women Protein Dessert has only 99 calories. That’s the same as an apple!
Making the dessert is simple. You mix a sachet of your favourite flavour with 70ml of water (or milk if you want extra creaminess). Then, you simply leave it in the fridge for 10-15 mins.
In that cooling time, you could burn off the dessert’s calories. For example:
✓ Jogging for 11 minutes burns 101 calories.
✓ Jumping jacks for 11 minutes burns 105 calories.
✓ Sit-ups for 11 minutes burns 100 calories.
✓ Pull-ups for 12 minutes burns 105 calories*.
Get Your Protein Hit
Unlike many diet desserts, the Active Women’s Protein Dessert actually packs a whole lot of protein. Each portion will deliver 15g of whey protein isolate and micellar casein. This means as well as tasting good, the dessert will help maintain and build muscles. Who knew a dessert could be a gym buddy too?
Maintain Your Metabolism
Active Women’s Protein Dessert contains added choline. This is a water-soluble vitamin which helps to support energy levels. This is certainly an added benefit for when you’re stepping up your gym routine. Importantly for dieters, it contributes to normal lipid metabolism.
Mix It Up
These flavours make great editions to your normal recipes to add some low-calorie flavours. Sprinkle over your porridge or zoats for a sugar injection in the morning. Or add to a smoothie if it needs help in the taste department. Banana Split and Strawberry Shortcake are perfect for livening up your fruit and vegetable blends.
You can also pair the protein dessert with other MyProtein snacks if you are feeling especially indulgent. We recommend protein brownies with chocolate truffle dessert or skinny cookies with velvet vanilla. You’ll feel like you’ve thoroughly treated yourself.
Keeping your cravings in check can be really hard sometimes. Even when you’re feeling all the benefits of a wholly healthy lifestyle, temptation can strike at any time. Feeling satisfied is a key part of sticking to a healthy regime in the long term. It’s better to have the feeling of a treat every so often than having a total off-the-wagon moment later down the line.
And knowing you can indulge without spoiling a low-calorie plan is definitely satisfying!
The Active Women Protein Desserts cover all the main craving culprits. Velvet Vanilla, Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate Truffle and Banana Split. So whatever sweet style is calling out to you, you can answer it right back.
