Hey lovelies. So I've been looking into low cal, low carb protein powders/bars to use as meal replacements when I've had a bunch of low restriction days in a row (I prefer to restrict between 600-800 cals per day but sometimes that slips way lower, and for me, that's not sustainable). Also thought it'd be really useful to have something on hand when I know I need to make dinner but I'm feeling overwhelmed. Or y'know, when I haven't done my groceries & have zero food in the house (I live by myself).

 

Anyways - I was looking at Maxine's because I really like their protein bars.

 

I stumbled across their night time protein powder and was wondering what you guys thought of it? How do you think the macros look? Has anyone tried it? https://www.nutritio...by-maxines.html

 

I thought the "sleep enhancing benefits" could be kinda useful, especially seeing as I struggle to get to sleep unless it's 2am or I've had a glass of wine.

 

Would love to hear any thoughts :)

I learned that hunger is a symptom of adopting bad behavior.

When I get better, I'll treat you like I used to

I have a protein shake before bed, really helps fill me up and sleep. Mines the For Goodness Shake chocolate 134 cals 300mls, 11 grams carbs 20g protein.

Never tried powder, can't be doing with all the mixing lol, but yeah it's worth a shot - mine stops any hunger pangs if that helps.

Love the sales pitch hehe:

"And if that isn’t a enough, Maxine’s Night also includes a fat burning complex that has been designed to enhance the liberation of fat in order to ensure it is the primary fuel sourced burned while you rest."

Macros look pretty good to me, mines 11grams carbs as well and 20g protein so this one looks fine - 200mls isn't a lot for the calories but looks ok otherwise.

Wouldn't the green coffee bean extract keep you awake or don't they have caffeine in them?

Looks like a good protein, but I would question why they mix stimulants ("fat burning" ingredients) with the sleep enhancement ingredients, and there's no dosage for these ingredients to see what the ratio between the two is like... If your sleep is not great then you may be better off having your regular protein powder and supplement with the sleep supplements separately?
