This will make a satiating smoothie that will keep you feeling full and provide you with nutrients and energy throughout the day. We do of course recommend a healthy wholefood diet in conjunction with our supplements, and at least a minimal amount of exercise per day so that you can make the most out of our protein and its lean-muscle building and weight-management attributes.
