5 Things That Surprised Me About Personalized Protein.

My boyfriend's big on bulking, so whenever he added protein powder to his oatmeal or a shake, I always refrained. After one of his particularly motivated periods, he was looking great, and I decided I wanted to spend more time in the gym, and get super toned, too.

I was a little (a lot) rusty, so when he suggested I take protein powder to actually make it through a cycling class without wanting to die, I took one look at his super manly-looking gallon bottle and thought "uhh, no."

He wasn't wrong that I needed a boost, just not his. I searched for protein for my needs, but nothing was coming up that would exactly suit my goals - until I found Gainful - it's a customized protein powder blend that takes into account my fitness requirements, and dietary needs.

When I went on their site, their packaging looked cute, but isn't all protein powder the same? After taking their quiz, here are the 5 things that surprised me

It's made with only high-quality ingredients. It's plant-based, vegan, certified organic and doesn't contain any artificial sweeteners

Made just for me. After a quick quiz about diet, fitness goals, and workout regimen, Gainful formulates a 100% personalized blend

Never get bored! Unlike generic powder, you'll get a neutral base and can choose yummy add-ins like Chocolate Fudge, Strawberry Milkshake, & Cookies & Cream.

Super Convenient. Your blend arrives on your doorstep every month. Plus, it's easy to press pause or cancel at any time.

Inexpensive! Never imagined I'd find the perfect personalized protein powder for less than $2 a serving.

Now my boyfriend and I actually work out together- only now, he tries to steal my protein powder. I made him sign up for Gainful and he got his very own customized blend. He said he liked it so much better than the bland vanilla whey stuff he was taking. And now we trade flavor sticks (well, I steal his chocolate fudge). Gainful also offers 24/7 support from a Registered Dietitian if you have questions or want to tweak ingredients.

Gainful improves my workout recovery, tones my muscles, and increases my personal strength. Plus, it tastes great! I feel fantastic about how I look, because I look as good as I feel.
