Number 3 on my list of Supplements I think everyone should take
Do you feel you are doing everything right in the gym and the kitchen but the results are still not quite right? Lose fat and preserve muscle with Whey Protein!!!
What is Whey? Whey protein is the protein that is contained in the watery portion of milk. This watery portion is called whey and it is what separates from the curds when cheese is produced. Mmmmmmm, doesn't that just sound yummy?!? ;)
Protein alone is an important component of every cell in the body. Your hair and nails are mainly made up of protein. Protein is important building blocks of bones, muscle, cartilage, skin, and blood. So a diet that contains a decent amount of protein is ideal! Whey is a great source of quick and easy protein to add to your diet. Whey is very fast absorbing and helps repair the tissue damage that is caused due to exercise. That is why Whey protein versus other types of protein is recommended post workout for its quick ability to be transported right to those worked muscles to start the recovery process and increase lean body mass. Yes, there are several types of protein powder out there and they all do different things. For example, Casein Protein powder is very slow absorbing and slow to digest which is why Casein is usually taken at bedtime.
Whey protein has many benefits for fat loss too. Most whey is low in calories and low in carbohydrates. Diets high in protein are more likely to help you manage your body weight. So for me, Whey protein is an easy source to get a little more added protein to my daily diet. Many (mainly women) are afraid of protein powder thinking it will cause them to bulk up like a body builder. I have been supplementing with Whey protein powder after workouts for over 10 years.
Cellucor is my favorite because they provide a HUGE variety of flavors (12 to be exact) to fit everyones prefereces.
