First, I have to preface this review by stating that I have NOT been paid for this review. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
Hey, My name is Matt, and I’m on a weight loss journey trying to lose 5 stone. I have been overweight for many years, and in January of 2021, I took hold of the reigns and decided to do something about it.
Since then, I have been documenting my weight loss journey on TikTok and have been loving every minute of it.
To help with the Calorie Deficit I have undertaken, I am always on the lookout for meal replacements or healthy meal alternatives.
Enter “Gym Kitchen“.
My self and my partner went to the local ASDA on Tuesday, and whilst there, we happened upon this range of healthy, high protein and low-calorie meals.
I was very impressed with the range of flavours available in the shop, and I’m sure there’s more available than what I initially saw.
Price-wise, I was very impressed. £3.50 per portion or 2 for £5, effectively making it £2.50 per portion. It isn’t the cheapest option available, but as weight loss aids go, I would place this in the ‘affordable’ category.
Now let’s get on to the flavours available.
Gym Kitchen offers a wide range of flavours including, Chicken Tikka, Thai Green Chicken, Piri Piri Chicken, Chilli ‘Non’ Carne, Harissa Chicken and Korean Beef Chilli.
The flavours I chose to take home with me were Piri Piri x 2, Thai Green Chicken and Korean Beef Chilli costing me £10 in total for 4 days worth of lunches.
What did I think of them?
So far, I have tried the Piri Piri Chicken and have nothing but praise for the product. The portion sizes appear to be quite small, and as a big guy, I appreciate a larger portion, but this amount actually filled me up quite nicely for a long while. I suppose the protein content is so high that it reduced my hunger levels for a longer period than what a larger meal I prepared at home would.
Taste-wise, it was flawless. I love Piri Piri chicken and having been stuck indoors for the better part of 2 years, I have missed my Nandos fix. This meal, although not quite a Nandos, is a familiar and welcome replacement for that urge.
I posted a TikTok about my thoughts on this product as well as how to prepare it.
Gym Kitchen is available at ASDA and Co-Op, although I personally chose ASDA as you’re more likely to find them in stock.
Overall I would give Gym Kitchen a solid 8/10.
