If you’ve been reading my blog since last year, you would know that I have a weight problem. All the years of sedentary living has caught up with me. The last time I got any exercise prior to starting to go to the gym last November 2011 was back in 2008 when I lost 10 lbs. after doing 6 weeks of Bikram Yoga for my sister’s wedding.
Anyhow, I dropped by briefly at Amway’s Nutrilite event last January 7, 2012 and decided to participate in a fitness challenge which involves controlling your diet. The last challenge I did was all about working out at the gym and drinking a fat-burning beverage. This one revolves around calorie-counting and limiting food intake. They gave me a food diary to record my food consumption with. I had a session with Amway’s nutritionist who prescribed the optimal amount of food I should eat to promote weight loss. She suggested that I replace something like one meal a day with either a protein bar + some fruits or a meal replacement shake. It’s also recommended that instead of 3 big meals, you have 5 small meals a day.
Anyhow, I’m here to talk about Amway’s Nutrilite Positrim Protein Bar which I’ve been having for merienda (snack) the past week. So yeah, instead of the usual snack fare (that includes midnight snack heh) I’ve been having this. I have a box of 9 bars in Fudgy Brownie flavor. I love chocolate so this is perfect for me.
Anyhow, each bar is individually foil-wrapped. It’s the size of a typical chocolate bar but it’s markedly heavier.
I was surprised at how chocolatey, fudgy, and delicious it looks. It doesn’t look like diet food at all. It even smells like a chocolate bar! XD
I bit it and it tasted just like a fudgy brownie, living up to what the box says. It’s moist, chewy, and well… it’s just like eating an actual yummy brownie. It’s a lot thicker and heavier in terms of texture though so I take smaller bites and make sure I chew it properly. I also drink a lot of water. It’s recommended that you eat this with some fruit if you’re planning to replace your meal with it.
Why I like it:
- I like how it tastes.
- It’s surprisingly filling.
- It’s sugar-free. My paternal side is diabetic so I need to be careful about diabetes.
- It’s only 250 calories.
- It contains 22g of protein.
Downside? It’s expensive. A box of Nutrilite Positrim Protein Bars containing 9 pieces costs P1,950 — so that’s about P217 per bar.
You can order Nutrilite Positrim Protein Bar and other Nutrilite weight management products from Amway Distributor Centers nationwide.
