Protein Protein Protein Shake or NOT!
I am going crazy!
I have been researching on and on about Protein powder, is it good? is it bad?
Good Question? Well… it’s just not a good answer.
I have been training quite a lot lately and find I need more protein, for recovery, for energy, for feeling great-ER!
Protein Supplements, some sources disapprove it, and others say it’s okay. Which is the correct one? I still don’t know.
Here are some sources, and you can be your own judge:
However, my safest and healthiest matter I found was by following a natural Protein option, that is by foods, such as:
Great Grains: Oats, Spelt, Quinoa, Amaranth, Wheat germ
Protein-Packed Fruits and Snacks: Dried apricot, Sun dried tomatoes, Edamame, Pumpkin and squash seeds, Chia seeds, Walnuts, Almonds and almond butter, Pistachios
Satisfying Seafood: Ocean trout, Salted cod, Sockeye salmon
Meat (and Tofu) Alternatives: Seitan, Tempeh
So after continuous research, I am still undecided if Protein Powders are a healthy choice, but I will keep you updated if I find the answer.
As for now, my only advise is try to get your protein as naturally as possible.
Keep in mind, Fish oil is high protein intake.
