My workouts and nutrition for the month of February are being fuelled by the Exox Lean-Pro Protein and Protein Synergy Bars from Evox, a leading local and international supplements brand. Evox has been around for years and I have been one of their devoted customers ever since I discovered their ‘to die for’ flavour of their Whey Protein Advanced, the apple crumble custard flavour.
And as you may know, in the supplements world, once you find a protein powder or any supplement that tastes amazing, you stick with it because great flavours are often hard to come by. You can imagine my joy then when I received a box of supplements to try out from one of my favourite brands.
I was kind of nervous though because I didn’t want to be disappointed by a brand I love if the supplements turned out to not be what I was hoping for, in terms of flavours. Boy, I was relieved to find that the EVOX Lean-Pro Protein (chocolate cream sundae flavour) and Synergy protein bars (chocolate and cookies and cream) sang the same delicious tune as the apple crumble custard whey protein.

EVOX LEAN-PRO PROTEIN AND SYNERGY PROTEIN BARS REVIEW
EVOX LEAN-PRO PROTEIN REVIEW
The EVOX Lean-Pro Protein is a high protein, very low-calorie diet shake that falls in the Toning and Slimming range of the Evox products. This diet shake supports weight loss and contains vital macronutrients that have been proven to accelerate weight loss.
Garcinia Cambogia (HCA) is one of the key ingredients in the Lean-Pro Protein which in this regard assists in the weight control process through various mechanisms for a multi-pronged effect. The Lean –Pro Protein formula includes 21g of High Biological Value Protein from various sources, as well as high fibre levels and an ultra-low 2g of carbohydrates per serving.

I have been using the Lean-Pro Protein for almost two weeks now and I usually take it in the evening as part of my dinner. The first thing that I noticed when I opened my protein jar was how small the scoop was compared to a normal protein scoop.
But since this is a weight loss shake, portion control is essential and the scoop, therefore, made sense when it finally clicked.

Apart from the fact that this diet shake is ultra-low on carbs, I love that it mixes well with water even when I just use a normal water bottle as opposed to a protein shaker.
As stated above, the flavour I received is the chocolate cream sundae, which is sort of a mild chocolate taste (it is not too sweet, nor is it too strong).
I feel like if you love chocolate flavours, you would love the chocolate cream sundae, and if you are not a big chocolate flavour fan, you would still love this, simply because of the mildness.
Cappuccino, Vanilla and Strawberry are the other available flavours in this range and the Lean-Pro Protein is sold in two sizes – 1.9kg and the 900g.
So, if you are on a weight loss journey and are looking for a protein powder that is very low on carbs and calories to supplement your diet, I say you must give Lean-Pro Protein a go.
EVOX PROTEIN SYNERGY BARS REVIEW
The Evox protein synergy bars are available in three flavours- choc hazelnut, chocolate and cookies and cream. Each bar weighs 62g and contains 20g of protein. I got to try out the cookies and cream as well as the chocolate flavours.

EVOX COOKIES AND CREAM SYNERGY BAR REVIEW
The cookies and cream synergy bars are covered in an ample layer of chocolate and just under that layer is where the real magic is to be found.
Once you bite through the bar, you will be greeted by a shirtless Channing Tatum (hey, this is the only way I could describe how amazing the first bite of the cookies and cream bar really is, okay?)
So, once Channing Tatum steps aside and you are back to your senses, you will notice a thick caramel coloured layer of the cookies and cream. What is deliciously incredible about the cookies and cream bar is that it has just the right amount crunchy pieces of cookies and just the right amount of sweetness.
Overall, the texture apart from the lovely crunchy bits, is quite smooth and soft, not at all chewy.
I eat the synergy bars in the morning just before my workouts but I do find it hard to finish a whole bar in one sitting because they are very filling, so I have half pre-workout and the other half post workout.
Side note: The bars taste even better after putting them in the fridge for a few hours. This is a free tip that you must really try. You are welcome.
EVOX CHOCOLATE SYNERGY BAR REVIEW
The nutritional composition of the chocolate flavour is the same as the cookies and cream and so is the texture somehow.
The chocolate synergy bar is wrapped in a thin layer of chocolate while the centre has the texture and taste of chocolate brownies.
The chocolate bar also has some white crunchy bits in the middle and I wondered if that may have been some pieces of milk chocolate (I may be wrong).
I have to say that I have noticed I similarities so far with all the Evox supplements that I have so far tasted- the brand ensures that their products are never bland nor too sweet.
This was the case too with the chocolate flavour.
So, yeah I didn’t see Channing Tatum dance before my eyes with this flavour but that is only because I am more of a caramel than chocolate, kind of girl, even when it comes to plain old candy – I am not big on chocolate.
Overall, I loved all the three products and will definitely spend my money on Evox products because they are very consistent when it comes down to quality and beautiful flavours.

You had me with Channing Tatum dancing before your eyes when you took your first bite! In all seriousness, they sound wonderful! My step dad is a fiend for things like this so I’ll have to suggest these to him!
It’s very good to hear that the bars are very filling and you don’t need to eat more than one at a time. Protein bars are essential for every workout.
I have tried a few protein bars int he past but never really liked them, I will have to have a look out for these to try them out x
I think the bar ones sound lovely — I like stuff like this for when I am on the go
These sound like some great ways to try and get more protein into your life. I have to admit I’m not sure I could do a shake (yet) but I’m up for trying a bar or two.
My husband swears by these kinds of bars. He always has one in his gym bag! I havent tried them but I deffinetly will!
I hear you that ‘good protein flavors’ are so hard to come across so I am glad that pro protein did not disappoint you and tasted delicious! Lol and if I was greeted by a shirtless Channing Tatum that would suit me just fine!
I’m not a big fan of protein bars but as long as you’re loving them then that’s great. Plus, they do the job! WHEY on the other hand… I always have!
This is my first time to learn about this protein bars. I have learn that protein bars are good as well . Of course, I want to try this one too.
I’ve never been at a workout stage where protein bars have looked like they’d be a benefit, but they sound good x
I’ve never heard of this brand before. The chocolate protein bar sounds moreish.
Not heard of these before, but always on the look put for pre gym workout snacks that will give me a boost x
I think I prefer the idea of a protein bar than a shake, ive tried the shake and didnt like the taste.
Sounds like a super brand! I love protein shakes and bars; they’re so portable and handy to have post-workout.
I haven’t needed to use these type of products before, so have little experience of any of them; but that said these sound like a good brand with some tasty flavours.
Great that it mixes well in a normal water bottle too as there’s nothing worse than a lumpy protein shake!
Protein bars have nevermind really been my thing, but this have actually caught my eye. Going to have to look them up ??
I’ve always been a bit scared of bars like these but now I’ve actually started exercising, I’m a lot more interested in them and can definitely see the benefits. These sound delicious!
I have tried so many different protein bars and powders, but haven’t tried these yet. Thanks!
