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:

http://www.eatingwell.com/food_news_origins/green_sustainable/best_meat_worst_meat_the_best_protein_choices (my personal favorite)

 

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

 

See http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/20-surprisingly-good-sources-vegetarian-protein for details.

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.
