Being on a diet, I have to watch what I eat and drink. I am a BzzAgent, so I share things that I get offered. This time around I am sharing the Special K Protein Breakfast Shakes. I tried both the Chocolate Mocha and the Vanilla Cappuccino on different days. As part of being a BzzAgent, I do reviews for certain products. Today I did two reviews, but they were done on one of the websites that BzzAgent provided for us to do a review on, the options were Walmart or Amazon I choose Walmart. Before writing my 2nd review, I read the most helpful review, which honestly I was taken aback. Because I had no idea how many carbs are in these shakes. I don’t buy many of them, so I had nothing to really compare to. But once reading the review the person wrote that these shakes had the most carbs and sugar than any other shakes, additionally it had artificial sweeteners, now honestly I am trying to stay away from that! So already I wasn’t happy. A supplement known as Laxogenin is the subject of one of the most contemporary crazes in bodybuilding. Apparently, it can deliver 200% boost in the synthesis of muscle protein. So you have at least done some exercises to fully benefit from that. If you’re lazy to go outside, you can find ellipticals below 500 dollars with great quality so worrying about going out is not a big deal anymore. Here’s the catch; the supplement is touted to provide all these without impacting your hormonal levels, endocrine system, or androgen receptors. When it comes to supplements, Laxogenin is derived from diosgenin, a more common plant steroid. You’ll be interested to know that diosgenin is usually a primary raw material for more than half of the synthetic steroids, including cortisone, testosterone, and progesterone. If you are speaking of health supplement then you must try Laxogenin.
As you can see here in this picture, what the nutritional facts are. Even though they are high in carbs, they do have a lot of vitamins and fiber so that is great too! In my opinion if you are not fussy about carbs an sugar then this could be ideal for you. But for myself it is not. I had 2 samples to try, even though they were full size samples, I’m glad I had the opportunity to try them. They were free too, as long as I shared on my social network sites and did reviews, it was worth the try. Plus I got some coupons to share with others, and hopefully they will like it more than I did.
First time I tried one, I was here at home, I thought hmm it’s morning, let’s try this instead of breakfast. Even though one of these is 180 Calories, and my typical breakfast would be 300 calories I thought why not. I opted and had the Chocolate Mocha, it was very chocolatey, had that shake taste that most do. I did enjoy it, it was very tasty. Although 30 minutes later I was hungry again. I thought so much for that, that is not for me. I don’t like spending the next 2-3 hours with my stomach yelling at me hehe.
The second time I had the Vanilla Cappuccino, it happen to be laundry day So it was a perfect time to take it with me. On the go, in a rush so to speak. When I do laundry my mind wanders as I’m waiting for the laundry to finish washing. I had my shake, it was so very tasty, I truly like Vanilla over Chocolate. Before I knew it, it was going to lunch time. I didn’t even think about being hungry or anything, since I was going back and forth to the laundry room.
In all honesty, this is a good breakfast substitute for those that are not fussy about carbs as I mentioned before, and if you are on the go. When you are busy, and rushing around, you aren’t really thinking about food much! Your mind is so set on getting things done. In a sense it’s being fooled. So, instead o skipping breakfast, this type of shake would make a good alternative. I don’t think I’ll be buying more, well actually I want to try the Strawberry, just to try it. But I don’t think I’ll be purchasing it anymore after that. I’ll find something with less carbs and sugars.
This was the nice BzzAgent kit I got, two shakes and coupons, I enjoyed trying it. And sharing my thoughts about it. If you are interested in getting some products for free, in exchange for a little feedback, I would encourage you to sign up with BzzAgent!
