I have been using Sportyfood for a number of months now and I have seen so many benefits to both my performance and my health. Sportyfood products allow you to increase your protein intake without consuming heavy amounts of carbohydrates, which is ideal for me as a type 1 diabetic as I don’t want to see massive spikes in my blood sugars during training sessions because that would not allow me to perform to my best. I can now enjoy fuelling my body without worrying about blood sugar spikes and have seen an overall improvement in my diabetes, which is so important to my quality of life and my sport! Before Sportyfood I also struggled a lot to meet my daily protein goals as I eat a mainly vegetarian diet but not I easily meet those goals all while enjoying the great taste of these products. Italian food is by far my favourite and now I get to enjoy it every day all while enhancing my workouts and performances. I couldn’t recommend Sportyfood enough!
