Getting a fit and toned body is not difficult if you go about it the right way. Not only should you stick to a proper exercise regime but also pay equal attention to your diet. A smart eating plan is the foundation to an efficient exercise regime according to me. It is also no secret that protein plays a very important role whether you are looking to bulk up or get a lean body. As vegetarians we have limited choice of protein rich foods. While both Mr.H and myself do consume vegetarian, protein-rich food like sprouts, pulses, soya, cheese, milk etc, I feel that this alone is not enough if you are serious about gymming or have a hectic lifestyle. And this is where Whey Proteins come into picture. Whey proteins play a key role in muscle growth and also provide energy to the body during workouts. Mr. H has been trialling Protein Lifestyle's Get Started Pack for the past few weeks and today's post is about the same.

Priced at £32.96 the Get Started Pack - For Him includes:
- Whey Protein Concentrate 1kg,
- Creatine Monohydrate 500g,
- ZMA® 100 Capsules and
- Shaker

WPC : This high grade Whey Protein Concentrate mixes real smooth with no lumps. Though the shaker did not do the job as expected, using a blender give an even and lump free drink. The Strawberry flavour was lovely - very natural and left no after-taste. With over 80% protein per serving, the WPC is excellent for improving your energy levels and also for repairing and building tissue. The WPC is fast acting and digests rapidly from the stomach. Not only is it good if you are exercising(you can use it as a pre and post workout drink) but it can also be used for general health benefits. I have also tried it out a number of times as a weight control aid. WPC(protein in general) assists in weight loss by increasing the body's metabolism rate. I like the taste and the drink keeps my hunger pangs at bay. WPC can also helps with maintenance of hair, skin and nails. Considering how great tasting it is, I am going to be making WPC a part of my daily routine as well. Protein Lifestyle's WPC comes in 4 flavours: Strawberry, Chocolate, Vanilla and Banana. I love anything 'Chocolate' so I might pick the Chocolate flavour next :)

Pros of Protein Lifestyle’s WPC
- Over 80% protein per serving
- Excellent for building and repairing muscle
- Great taste: comes in 4 yummy flavours
- Easy to mix with a blender
- Reasonably priced

Creatine Monohydrate has been used by athletes and bodybuilders to improve power, strength and lean mass. The starter pack comes with two 250gms pack of Creatine Monohydrate. It is suggested to use around 5gms(a 5ml scoop) of Creatine 1-2 times a day. Mr.H was using this along with the WPC shake. It mixes well with WPC and you get a smooth shake.

The ZMA capsules come in a pack of 100 and contain Vitamin B-6(from Pyridoxine HCI) 10mg, Magnesium 450mg(from Magnesium Citrate and Magnesium Oxide), Zinc(from Zinc L-Methionine and Zinc Aspartate)30mg, Gelatin, Maltodextrin and Magnesium Stearate. The key benefits of ZMA are: increasing the hormone levels, helping to increase strength and endurance while exercising and promoting better sleep. Mr.H mentioned that there was noticeable difference in his energy levels and alertness and also a slight improvement in resting levels. If you compare the rate of other similar products, these ones from Protein Lifestyle come out a winner both in terms of quality and price.

To sum it up, if you are starting off with an exercise regime and need to supplement your natural protein intake then this starter pack is for you. It contains all that is needed and will help you increase your energy levels as well as aiding your recovery after each training session. You can also purchase the products individually from Protein Lifestyle's website.
