Weekend Read on Protein Powder!

New clients and experienced clients alike eventually end up asking the same question, about whether or not drinking protein shakes are acceptable or not? My response is typically along the lines of just stick to eating real food, maybe eat more sweet potatoes etc on days that you workout. Recently, one of my personal training clients brought the protein powder topic/question to the table again. Instead of going into detail, I will let you all read for yourselves a great write up that Amy (one of Robb’s Paleo dietitians) recently wrote. The write up is calledWhey’ing In: Are Protein Powders Paleo? Click the link to read more and have a fabulous weekend!

    Great post Chrissy! Protein powders are such a pandora’s box to talk about. I’m so glad you posted on it instead of me going on one of my usual rants :)

    I always take those protein powders manufactured by Ultimate Nutrition because they are of very high quality. :

    Unfortunately, when you walk into your local health food store to purchase a whey protein powder, you will probably be expecting a qualified sales person who knows all about the products on the shelf. What you will actually – most likely – encounter is a teenager who doesn’t know the first thing about body building, much less the products on the shelf in the store where he or she works. They are just there for the minimum wage paycheck. Even if the sales person is qualified to answer your questions, they represent their company – not you – and will suggest the product that nets them the highest profit, instead of the product that is going to net you the most benefit. -

  5. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours as of late, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the internet shall be much more helpful than ever before.
