No matter how hard I try to eat healthily I always find myself giving up after the first day and plonking myself on the sofa with enough chocolate to feed a small family. It doesn’t matter what incentive I give myself, the lure of a good burger or dessert always gets the better of me. So when So Shape got in touch to see if I fancied trying out their meal replacement shakes I figured I didn’t really have anything to lose and so I found myself embarking on a 28 day challenge to get my butt into gear.
The idea behind So Shape is that you replace 2 of your meals a day with one of their ‘smart meals’ (the shakes) and then eat one normal meal a day. There’s a few challenges you can choose from: 5 days, 7 days or 28 days. Not liking to do anything by halves naturally I opted for the 28.
Now here’s where I faced a slight problem. I don’t really like milkshakes and therefore by proxy I presumed I wouldn’t like these either. I don’t know what it is about them but unless it’s a McDonald’s Banana milkshake you’re offering me then chances are I’m gunna decline.
Luckily for me though these bad boys didn’t taste too bad at all. It would have been a long ol’ 28 days if they had. There’s a mix of flavours you can choose from so whether you’re a sweet or savoury kinda person you’ll be covered. Personal faves included White Chocolate & Vanilla and Cookies & Cream (couldn’t stray too far from that chocolate bar now could I.)
One of the best parts about So Shape is that all their shakes are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians and apparently contain just the right amount of calories to lose weight and stay full. After taking part in my 28 day challenge I feel revitalised and ready to kick the gym’s butt (maybe…) and the bonus is that my jeans are a little looser!
If you’re in the market for some meal replacement shakes or like me you just can’t motivate yourself to avoid the biscuits then these are the perfect answer. If you do fancy giving them a go then you can use ADOPTEDSCOUSERCUSTOM to enjoy twice as many flavours and ya can’t say no to that can ya?
