Teen Takes The 2 Week UFIT Challenge

UFIT got in touch recently to let us know about their two week January Snack Swap challenge.  UFIT is a high protein milk shake for people with a busy and active lifestyle.  Teen definitely fits the bill here as he plays sport regularly and walks to school daily.  He seemed like the perfect fit.

UFIT Challenge

Teen is naturally tall and slim, and likes to snack on unhealthy treats.  He’s just one of those people who can get away with that.  As a growing teen his energy levels are up and down.  He has a lot of commitments too with a part time job, studying for his A Levels and keeping the girlfriend happy.  He needs as much energy as he can get.

UFIT have asked him to swap his unhealthy treats with 2 UFIT protein shakes a day and see if the change gives him more energy for day to day activities. A crate of drinks have arrived and we’ve all given them a try to start off with.

Teen likes them, and hasn’t had any trouble adding them into his daily routine.  I tried them, but personally I found them far too sweet.  They aren’t something I would drink every day but they would be perfect for a sweet tooth.  Each bottle contains 170 calories, which is 90 calories less than say a Mars Bar so it seems like a sensible swap doesn’t it?

If you snack on unhealthy treats or drink fizzy every drinks, UFIT protein drinks could be right up your street.  The contain 22g of essential protein which will support an active lifestyle and keep those hunger attacks under control.  Have you tried UFIT protein shakes yet?  Would you consider swapping them for your morning biscuit or afternoon chocolate treat?

We have been provided with a selection of UFIT drinks to complete the snack swap challenge and will get back to you in a couple of weeks to let you know how teen got on.

    I wouldn’t personally drink them but neither do I like smoothies/milkshakes/ squashes or fizzy drinks! I can see the appeal for teens though – I have an 18 year old son who is also doing his A levels but he drinks gallons of plain water with the occasional tea or black coffee – he hasn’t got a sweet tooth at all. My elder 25 year old son and my 10 year old favour cola and both have a very sweet tooth so I would be happy for them to try this instead! Thanks for the review.

    oo I like the look of these for the husband! he’s a nightmare stopping off at the pastry shops (plural) on his way home – these would be great for him and he has a sweet mouth!! – so I don’t see the sweetness being a problem for him!

    I would definitely try this, to avoid reaching for the biscuit tin for a quick last minute snack!! The only thing that puts me off is that it sounds sweet, I wonder if you could add it to some plain yoghurt to tone it down??

    Sounds like a great replacement for a sugary snack, I get in to an awful habit, particularly on work days when I get a slump at about 3pm so reach for a chocolate bar. This looks like a great alternative!

    I have never heard of these before , they do sound a great alternative to a sugary snack though. My teen daughter is the same she eats lots of junk and I am amazed she is so slim, she doesn’t take after me xx

    It’ll be interesting to see how he gets on. They’re not the kind of drink I’ve have because I’d rather have a healthy snack and water.

    How is the teen finding them so far? I wouldn’t drink them either but it is great that you are finding an alternative to unhealthy treats!

    I want to try UFIT too, sounds like an awesome challenge I could do with swapping my unhealthy snacks with this.

    Ive always kept away from these sorts of drinks as Im never sure if I am actually active enough to benefit and if not I would just be loading on calories. However for your teenager I can see how they would go down a treat x

    This looks so good for my teen – he is 13 though, he snacks on junk and loves fizzy drinks 🙁 I will look into this, thank you. Kaz x

    This looks a good option instead of snacks or fizzy drinks. I’ll have to suggest my younger sister tries it seeing as all she drinks is fizzy drinks x
