Energybits Review and Giveaway!


Recently I won a sample of Energybits and gave it another try.  I've used them before but not consistently like I've been doing lately.  As I've gone on and on and on about my sensitive stomach I'm always concerned to try things for multiple days.  I will say, I only use them on my runs that I don't fuel on.  I am still not confident enough in my stomach to try to mix them with my Hammer stuff.  

Here's what I think----- After taking about 20 of the little bits (DO NOT CHEW THEM) I always feel like I am getting a little more pep in my step. I finish my runs strong and have enough energy to handle my three littles, cook dinner, clean the house, entertain the masses, etc.  
I do plan to continue using them and Energybits was kind enough to offer me a sample to giveaway!!! Here's a little on the product and the giveaway will be at the bottom!!

Here's a bit more info: ENERGYbits is a new Boston based sports nutrition company. Our “bits” are rapidly becoming the fuel of choice for athletes and people looking to lead active lifestyles. ENERGYbits have the highest concentration of protein in the world and deliver a steady stream of energy, all naturally and all without sugar, caffeine, chemicals or stomach distress. Even better, ENERGYbits are the only protein in the world that also contain natural antioxidants and Omega 3 which reduce muscle inflammation, iron which prevents fatigue, chlorophyll which builds the immune system and electrolytes which replenish mineral imbalances, all for just one calorie per tab. No other protein offers all this.  

ENERGYbits are all natural too, because they are a food, not a supplement. They have just one ingredient - 100% organically grown spirulina algae. Algae has been used by Olympic athletes for over 50 years, but is still virtually unknown in the USA and Canada. We are the first company to bring algae to national attention as a high protein, high performance snack food for athletes and active consumers. 
ENERGYbits are only available at ENERGYbits.com, and Jonathan (their Brand Manager) has shared with me that he'd be happy to connect anyone with a current ambassador to share a discount on a bag of bits - you can email him at jlevitt@energybits.com

    1. They are a great go to fuel for me. Like I said I use them for short runs but tons of people use them for their longs too!

  5. I have tried Energybits. They work amazingly and there is zero crash. I do use Energybits when I have them, otherwise I tend to use Clif Shot Bloks or Gu.

  7. I have a sample that I am planning on tying but I need to work up to using them. I have a sensitive stomach so I need to be careful or my runs will get affected.

  14. I've tried Energy Bits and would like to give them another try. I hated how they stuck to my teeth and never remembered them soon enough to swallow and wait to digest them. Plus, 30 is a lot to swallow!
    I'm not a good enough runner to need to do any special fueling, my long runs are only 6 miles, my usuals are 2-4

  15. I have never tried them but have heard great things! I usually use a combination of GU and Sport beans
