Having their support means so much to me and I’m excited to be part of the XXL team, which includes great athletes such as Jeffrey Suijkerbuijk, Evelien Nellen – van Pelt and Robin Brantz to name a few.

The XXL brand has become a household name for many athletes and the XXL Nutrition supplement store is growing each and every day with an awesome product range to meet various sporting needs.

Let’s talk supplementation

Lisanne Vos (getfoxfit)

Supplements.  We all have our favorites.  I spent a lot of time researching and reading (especially the all important ‘Ingredients’ label) on the vitamins, supplements and protein powders I was keen on.

I’m mainly getting all my nutrients, vitamins and energy from healthy food sources however since  I’m pretty much vegan / macrobiotic I need some extra help in the protein department as protein is necessary to build and restore muscle.

As I only have 1 kidney now and since I don’t eat meat, eggs or diary I was looking for a vegan protein powder that is as clean and natural as possible (I’m all about minimising toxins and don’t want to put extra stress on my kidney).  After researching I have decided on GOOD Hemp Protein which I bought from De Tuinen.

I have been using it for 2 weeks now and am very happy with it.  No bloating, no weird smells in the shaker cup (we all know how crazy shaker cups can smell – ‘get your gas mask on’ haha) and no adverse affects.  I feel energized and since surgery have learned to understand and listen to my body, which gives the GOOD Hemp Protein 2 thumbs up.  The taste is a little strange, especially if you are used to the sweetened flavors of normal protein shakes (banana anyone?!) however you get used to it.  It tastes a little ‘earthy’ in all honesty, but I’m good with that :)

As well as GOOD Hemp Protein I am taking Solgar Vegetarian Multiple and Omega 3 Fish Oil.

No fat burners or pre workout.  My pre workout is a cup of black coffee or an expresso.  As for fat burners, I just don’t feel happy using them.  I would rather lower my body fat % through good clean nutrition, workouts and cardio.

Hope that helps anyone looking for supplementation.  Always happy to answer any questions!
