Genius Nutrition Protein- why it’s so Genius!

PROTEIN – Many of you may know various brand names of protein powders, may know many people who consume them for many different reasons, you may consume protein yourself, which is great! Once you enter the ‘fitness world’ the word protein becomes a very important word to you…whatever your goals may be.

In the Life of a Chocolate Girl we have me (the sceptic), my husband (the supplement consumer), our little bear cub (Baby Ayan – 18 months old, still breastfeeds), Oh and Cliffy the Spitz. I state this to you because, in this case the relevance of QUALITY of protein plays a massive role in the dynamics. My husband has been a gym goer for years now, and has always taken protein to aid him with muscle growth, repair and recovery – so over the years I’ve seen all the different brands he’s tried and have always had protein in our home at my disposal if I’d ever wanted to take it – well, he looks pretty good if I don’t say so myself. However, I never really took any protein despite having intense workouts and needing the extra protein being also a vegetarian and a breastfeeding mother with a super active lifestyle. I used to say to my husband all the time that the ingredients just didn’t seem natural or healthy and that I simply wasn’t ready to put unknown sourced ingredients into my body simply for aesthetic reasons whilst in the meantime possibly ruining the health of both, me and my baby. That is, until I came across GENIUS NUTRITION! 

I am now a protein drinker, I still breastfeed, have much more efficent muscle recovery, therefore less tiredness, more intense workouts and increased daily muscle progress. I’ve truly converted! Okay, so now you’re wondering what is it about the Genius Nutrition product that converted me? What makes it different to all the other supplement/protein companies I have come across until date? Well, let me bullet point you why…

  • Genius Nutrition has bought out one of the most innovate whey proteins until date
  • They provide only the purest, highest quality whey protein available
  • The whey is sourced only from cows that graze on natural grass pastures
  • Sourced from cows that have not had any antibiotics or hormone influence 
  • Protein is produced without GMO’s, pesticides and artifical flavours 
  • Protein from the macronutrients are calculated (no Amino Spiking on the label) 
  • Made in Belgium – Chocolate Dreams is so delicious and tastes exactly like belgian chocolate (always a bonus if you’re a chocolate lover like me). 

See, what more could you want? Perfect for the vegetarian! Keeps the protein requirements up, is healthy and pure as can. Most importantly the quality that is obtained from happy AND healthy cows is simply not comparible. Need I expand more? You may be wondering why the quality and purity mean so much to me, well here’s the thing…In my opinion, life isn’t just about aesthaetic quality, but just as or even more importantly – true quality. What’s the point in looking great if you’re feeding yourself all types of unknown substances and chemicals on the inside? The effects may not show now, but down the line, you never know what damage you may have been causing yourself all this time. Ask yourself, will the aesthetics or the health matter to you in 30 years time? It’s your choice, opt for Genius Nutrition today, get that kick-ass workout, look good, feel good & guarantee yourself a healthier, happier tomorrow!

The Post Festive Fitness Program

As we’re 10 days into the New Year and it’s probably a lazy Sunday for most (have you all got back into the flow of normal routine and work yet?) I’ve barely got the hang of getting back into it all, the work, the routine the constant rush of life, time is going so quickly that it already seems that Christmas and New Year is a distant memory so long ago. The only thing I do have in check, is my fitness goals for the next couple of months… Today I’ll just be running off to the gym for a quick 1.5 hour workout, then a busy day to prepare for the week ahead, you guys at some point during the day can take a quick read below. 

Seven days into the New Year I started my post festive fitness program, after gaining 6/7kg (About 1 stone) over the winter period (I know right!!!) I have embarked on a short 8 week, light program to get back into the normal flow of things.

So, what are my main fitness goals for these 8 weeks you ask?

  • Reduce body fat
  • Drop some weight
  • Regain muscle strength 
  • Improve Cardio Vascular Strength 

Further below, I will attach some images for a visual on how I’ve started, then throughout the program I will write blog updates and upload progress pics – visuals, visuals, visuals for motivation and improvement!

For those who want to know more about the 8 week programme, you can contact me by email: reema.moldovan@hotmail.co.uk

Anyways, enough about me, tell me about you? Do you have any health or fitness goals this year? Have any of you started anything new this year? Any new sports? I’d love to hear about them!

Best Wishes, R.
