The lovely Carlos at Myprotein got in touch with me at the end of October to see if I wanted to try some products from My Protein. Seeing as I am on a budget and a weight loss journey I jumped at the chance to try some new products to help with those goals.
Myprotein is a UK based sports nutrition company who have been running for 10 years. They are also Informed-Sport approved, which means that certain products have been tested and approved for competitive athletes.
I have chosen to try two products to replace my snacks over the next couple of weeks (details from the website below).
I am going to swap my snacks (except fruit) for these over the next few weeks and I will let you know how I get on with a review post. I will start on Monday in hopes my head cold will be fully gone.
Please note – I received these products free in exchange for an honest review.
