So I started today feeling quite optimistic, I took my 2 x Go Tablets with 250ml of water, and half a pack of the Shake (blended – yes blended, with 300ml water) and 1 Vita+ tablet with 250ml water.
The consistency of the shake was a bit thin, and there was some separation, which was a little off putting at first. (it took about 5 mins of staring at the blended mix before I eventually drank it) I have chosen to go for the chocolate flavoured shake, and to be honest I wasn’t let down by the flavour. it was good, the texture itself was a little off.
So I felt reasonably full, all pangs of hunger disappeared and I was able to take my mum out shopping. From above it does feel like you’re drinking lots of water, BUT About an hour and a half later I felt extremely thirsty. My mouth and throat felt dry, and I got a little panic-y. This isn’t something I’ve ever experienced before – like i said in my previous post, I’ve never taken any dietary supplements before but I have heard that thirst can be a side effect. I just didn’t realise the level of thirst, and the panic didn’t help, as it resulted in me feeling a little sick, and rushing around so I could get home. (I thought I was having an allergic reaction!) – BUT I had brought my handy shake it bottle with me (in the car) and as soon as I had some water all of the dryness was gone.
Moral of this story – I guess water in take is key. I just didn’t realise how key till that moment.
I missed my snack as I was out, and as I was going out again, I thought it best to take the 2nd half of my sachet for an early-ish lunch. This time, I blended the Shake with coconut water. the consistency was much thicker, and i felt fuller for longer. I took this with my 2nd Vita+ tablet, and some water and then went on my merry way back out.
The dryness came back a little, as I didn’t have any water for about an hour after. My water drinking, especially during winter is pretty poor – so this encouraged me to buy some water and to ensure I was hydrated.
The rest of the day was pretty good, no issues to speak of. It was a bit of a non day, as I was out most of the day I didn’t really have a “healthy” snack. I ended up having a bratwurst at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, and I felt like I was going to burst. Very full, I didn’t feel like I needed the whole thing (just being greedy!) we did a hell of a lot of walking.
I ended my Benevita day with 2 x Recovery BEFORE my evening meal. I say before in caps as I didn’t get a chance to read my instructions as to whether this should be taken before or after my evening meal.
All in all, not a bad day, lesson learnt on the water in take – ill make sure I’m hydrated, and at the very least this will start a water drinking habit 🙂
I’ve not put up my stats as yet as i needed help confirming them (my mummy!) so I will update this post at a reasonable hour tomorrow.
I am also looking into an instagram page, so I can post pictures of the products themselves.
Tomorrow (because its late right now and I walked 20,121 steps today, so I’m tired) I will note down the benefits of the “Go”, “Recover” and “Vita+” what they are and why I’ve been advised to take them with the Shake it.
