Leans Greens – a Superfood Supplement
Lean Greens is a powdered food supplement containing active ingredients such as wheatgrass, spirulina, spinach and many more. I’ve never taken a greens supplement before so I was really interested to see how I’d find it. Lean Greens kindly sent me out their Starter Kit which includes a 500G tub of Lean Greens and a shaker, everything I needed to get started.
So what does Lean Greens promise to do for you?
Cut the Bloat
Ah the dreaded bloat, something I know and suffer with all too well. I’ve already found certain foods that I know for a fact bloat me, tea is unfortunately one of them, but sometimes I do bloat unexpectedly. Bloating is not just uncomfortable but can be really disheartening appearance-wise, especially when you’ve been trying your best to eat clean and train hard. Since I started taking Lean Greens I don’t think I’ve suffered from bloating once. Now this could be down to a number of factors, diet etc., but it’s a good sign in my books!
End the Cravings
Nearly every night, an hour or two after dinner, I get the munchies bad. Chocolate, sweets, crisps, you name it. I found drinking Lean Greens in my smoothie in the morning or afternoon really kept me feeling full till my next meal. The only thing I will say is Lean Greens does not give you willpower and even though I wasn’t craving chocolate as much I was still eating it because it was in my cupboard. So the lesson here is, if you’re midnight munching get rid of junk food! Do a clear out and you won’t have any temptations.
Up the Energy
I probably saw this effect the least but to be honest, I wasn’t expecting a huge rise in my energy levels. I occasionally suffer from low energy levels and find them especially bad when I don’t have a daily routine. At the moment I’m on my summer break so my routine is incredibly infrequent. A lot of this comes down to me taking advantage of being able to have copious morning lie ins. I promise I’ll rise early tomorrow!
Overall, I’ve enjoyed taking Lean Greens everyday and am happy with the benefits received. My favourite way to drink it is in a smoothie; a banana, frozen berries, greek yoghurt and a scoop of greens. Drinking it alone is alright but I find the taste a tad bit overpowering and a smoothie fills you up for longer!
