Why You Should Add A Protein Drink Into Your Daily Routine

Whey protein comes from cow’s milk and in the form of whey isolate contains little or no fat, lactose or cholesterol.  So if you opt for whey, look for a protein powder where the first ingredient is whey in either “whey protein isolate” or “whey protein concentrate” form.  There can be a big disparity in the prices between different brands that is a matter of both how big the container is and the level of quality of the protein. The higher the quality and the fewer the additives, the more expensive the protein will be – and this is for both whey protein and egg white protein. Egg white protein is typically more expensive than whey but is every bit as effective.  Just make sure that the ingredients list is pretty short and starts with “”Pure egg white powder” or something to that effect. Regardless of the protein that you choose – they both offer superior nutrition – make sure that the serving size is no greater than 20 grams of protein, as this is about as much protein as our bodies can process in one serving.  You don’t HAVE to use the whole scoop of protein, as half a serving – or 10 grams of protein/65 calories – mixed with a cup of milk adds up to about 215 calories, which is more than enough for most folks. A protein drink can be the perfect breakfast for people on the go who don’t have time to eat a sit-down breakfast.   The shake takes about 30 seconds to prepare and if you have a little Tupperware shaker, breakfast can be a portable and healthy meal.  Starting off the day with a healthy 215-calorie protein shake will go a long way towards helping you have a good day.

  1. the knocks against soy are that it doesn’t mix as well and the taste can be a little rough…i kind of agree with that…soy scores as well as egg protein on the digestibility scale, so you’ll probably do just as well with soy if you can take the taste and texture.
