Maxitone Definity and the Lean Machine

Maxitone Definity Shakes

Definity is a protein powder for making shakes, smoothies or any of your other protein powder baking, help tone your body, help recovery, repair after exercise and help you feel fuller for longer.

Definity shakes are the easy way to add high quality protein into your diet and nourish your body with the extra nutrients it needs and also helps you to avoid snacking as it keeps you fuller for longer than a junk food snack would.
Definity shakes contain whey protein to help nourish your muscle after a workout and rapidly support body shaping and toning goals.  You can have a shake in the morning and another after exercise or one for breakfast and one in place of your afternoon snack, perhaps you could even have one instead of dessert to keep you away from calorie filled desserts.

Definity protein powder costs £18.99 for 420g and comes in Chocolate, Strawberry.  I was sent a tub of each of the protein powders to test out and give my review – mainly because I will be meeting Maxitone sponsored ‘The Lean Machine’ trainers soon > you can check out their youtube page here for some great workouts.

How do you use these protein powders?

Maxitone suggest you use a scoop of definity in your shaker with 200-25ml of water and this gives you the following nutrition
Energy 120 calories
Protein 24.3g
Carbs 2.04g
Fats 2.07g
Calcium 150mg

I personally mix it with 250ml unsweetened almond or soya milk or some skimmed cows milk and crushed ice or ice cubes before blending.  In the morning I like to have my protein powder as a smoothie or frappe and here are some of my favourite recipes to get your protein in for the day and also have a tasty breakfast that means you don’t feel deprived and keeps you full until your morning snack (I usually have an apple).

Strawberry Milkshake

250ml soya light milk
1 scoop of Definity strawberry protein powder
1/4 cup frozen strawberries from a bag of frozen banana and strawberries which you can get in sainsbury’s
1 tablespoon oats
1/4 cup crushed ice or 6 ice cubs
Blend in blender for a couple of minutes.

Choccy Monkey
250ml Kara coconut milk
1/2 frozen banana or some slices of frozen banana from smoothie bag from Sainsbury’s
1/4 cup crushed ice or 6 ice cubes
1 tablespoon of peanut butter if you like it
1 scoop chocolate Definity protein powder

Very Berry Smoothie
250ml skimmed milk or unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop of strawberry Definity protein powder
6 ice cubes
5 strawberries or frozen strawberries
some frozen or fresh blueberries

Overall I much prefer these powders to the cheaper ones I was using from Myprotein, they leave you feeling less bloated and the chocolate in particular has a much nicer taste.  Obviously the trade off is that they are more expensive.

Definity has 24g of protein per shake and unlike the sculptress powder they also sell, it contains no caffeine or green tea so you can have it before bed.  I could quite do with a bit of caffeine though so I might order myself a Sculptress tub once one of these is used up and have one of each.

I am going to try and crank it up to 2 servings per day, replacing my afternoon snack with a shake at work as well as my breakfast but so far, combined with my workouts, my arms are definitely looking more muscular and toned and less flab or bingo wing-y.
