"I loved Human food so much!!! Honestly the worst part about it is that I am out of them!!!"

Monday: Day 1 

Mondays are my jammed packed busy days, and within those days I also have two workout sessions. I saved my HF bar for right after practice, because I had so much that I had to get done that day, and I am usually starving after practice! The first thing that I noticed was the fudgey texture, which I absolutely loved! There was so much to the bar, and I loved that it didn't taste like chocolate, because after a long workout high amounts of sugar is not what I'm looking for! It was a bit oily, and the packaging was difficult to work with, but I remember you mentioning that it was part of the trial, and that the actual bars wouldn't be that way. I was halfway through the bar, already no longer feeling hungry. It was the best, because I knew that I had a few hours before I was going to be able to have dinner. Honestly it held me off through all of the things I got done, AFTER a huge and long workout day! 

Tuesday: Day 2

Tuesday mornings are my lifting days. I was running late, so I grabbed my human food bar, hoping that I was going to give me enough energy to get me through my gym session. WOW! Honestly I was so full and focused, never once feeling tired or hungry. This is GENUINELY something that I have never gotten from a bar! 

Wednesday: Day 3

This was a LOOOONG hurdle session day, and I wanted to try HF out for a "during the workout" bar, so I ate it between sets of 12,10,8,6 2,2 hurdle workout. I was so thrilled about the taste and texture for this. For anyone that knows about workouts (or competitions), it is SO hard to eat during them, especially being nervous for a specific workout or comp. Whenever I eat a bar with that "fake sugar" taste and texture, it cues my gag reflex instantly. HF is SO easy to eat during workouts. GAME CHANGER for me! 

Thursday: Day 4

I was excited to go to work today because it was my lifting day again. I felt really energized, and hit a new pb for back squat at 110 kg! It was such a good day, and LOVED HF and how it helped keep me full and ready to go! 

Friday: Day 5

This is my sprint endurance day. I was really nervous, because it was my first time back on the track doing harder runs, but I was able to get through it with so much energy and speed! The worst thing to have happen when I run is when I have to do a hard workout is to have either being too full or too empty, and HF gives me the perfect balance and I loved it! I was so thrilled to be able to try Human Food, and loved the product immensely! I definitely want to share you company and work with you guys, because your company is something that I truly love and really want to spread the word about! 

Disclaimer:

Everything about my diet, exercise, water and supplement intake was the same as my regular routine. The only change to my diet this week was Human Food. 

PROS:

 -Taste 

-Texture (loved that though there was a lot to it, it all was very cohesive I didn't get lots of different textures in it) 

-Perfect amount of food for what I need 

-Energizing 

-Kept me full long term 

-Made me feel light, bouncy, clean (as if I had the perfect diet) 

CONS: 

-I do wish it were a bit longer and less wide (I had a hard time biting into it, I had to tear it or it would get stuck in my teeth because of the combo size and texture) 

The week trial was great, but I think that working with Human Food on a more regular and long term basis would be so insanely beneficial for my training and lifestyle in general! I would like to see how it affects my performance long term. 

Chari.
