Diet Protein Blend

If you’re looking for a protein powder that’s nutritious, delicious and will give your body the support it needs after a tough workout, then Diet Protein Blend is the perfect partner. With 20g of protein and only 96 calories per serving, this superb blend will maximise muscle repair and growth without ruining your macros.¹

We’ve also added CLA and choline, which are both natural ingredients that studies have shown to play a role in fat loss and metabolism.2-3 If you’re aiming to cut down and tone up, then this is the ideal shake to make part of your training routine.

 

Vegan Protein Blend

This dairy-free blend boasts 16g of plant-based protein per serving, plus it contains all-natural flavourings with no added sugar. We’ve also added green tea extract, which studies have shown has a minor fat reducing effect, along with folic acid which is important for many biochemical reactions such as fat metabolism and cellular energy.4-5 For an added boost, you can count on the added vitamin C to reduce fatigue and support a healthy immune system.6-7

 

Superfood Protein Blend

Another plant-based protein powder, this tasty blend is packed with an amazing nutrient boost along with revitalising kick of caffeine from matcha – a form of green tea that also boasts weight-loss benefits.8

There’s also a powerful blend of vitamin C, folic acid, iron and zinc to help you hit your daily requirements in a quick and convenient way. Zinc is perfect for supporting your immune system, and iron helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue, so you’ll be on form to tackle your training, day after day.9-10

 

Pre-Workout Blend

Plenty of pre-workouts will have you bouncing off the walls way after you’ve left the gym, which isn’t ideal if you take it before an evening session. Our Pre-Workout Blend will give you enough of a buzz without keeping you awake at night.

Each serving contains 75mg of caffeine from naturally-sourced guarana and green tea extract. Studies show that caffeine can make you more alert as well as reduce tiredness and fatigue, while increasing endurance and power. 11-13

To fuel your muscles through every rep, each serving also contains 4g of BCAAs sourced from plant-based ingredients, using a microbial fermentation process.14 These are naturally found in protein, which helps to build and repair new muscle – important for your progress. There’s also vitamin C for extra energy, coconut water for added electrolytes, and choline to spur on the fat loss.15-17

 

Multivitamin

To get the most from your training, you need to keep yourself in tip-top condition. Chances are you won’t even make it to the gym if you’re not feeling on form, so taking a multivitamin is a great way to stay fighting fit and ready to return – without being knocked back by coughs and colds.18

Supporting you from the inside out, our Multivitamin contains vitamin D for bone and joint health, vitamin E for skin and hair, and a vitamin B blend to reduce tiredness and fatigue.19-21 We’ve also thrown in folic acid, calcium, iron and zinc for good measure.

Taking a female-tailored blend of vitamins will make sure that you’re giving your body exactly what it needs.22

 

What Can I Snack On?

This is the ultimate food flop – you can eat well at every meal but if you’re curbing those cravings with all the wrong snacks in between, then chances are your results will be limited. That’s where we come in.

With a delicious range of high-protein treats for you to try, you won’t have to choose between going hungry and sticking to your training regime.

 

Lean Protein Bar

This is a bar bursting with protein power – 18g of it, to be exact. High in fibre and low in sugar, the Lean Protein Bar is a delicious on-the-go snack for that get-up-and-go feeling. Coming in two indulgent flavours – Cookie Dough or White Chocolate and Raspberry – they’ll have you quitting chocolate bars for good.

 

Lean Cookie

If you’re watching what you eat, then cookies are usually a big fat no. The scrumptious Lean Cookie, however, has all the tantalising taste without the post-munch guilt. With 80% less sugar, 70% less fat and 25g of protein per cookie, this is a treat you can feel good about.

 

Lean Flapjack

It’s not all about the protein, especially if you’re looking to fuel a workout, then carbohydrates are important too. The Lean Flapjack is the perfect blend of both, so you can stock up on your oaty complex carbs and protein in a tasty way. With only 2g of sugar, you’ll struggle to find a flapjack that looks and tastes as good anywhere else.

 

Protein Brownie Bar

The ultimate sweet tooth soother – brownies are usually the best dessert, but the worst for you. Luckily, our Protein Brownie Bar offers a delicious dessert option without derailing your diet. Packed with a huge 23g of protein, they contain up to 75% less sugar than many supermarket alternatives, making them a treat that’ll keep you on track.
