Whey to go?
So you see all the gym buffs strutting around with their shakers filled with these colourful liquids. And your thinking hmmm I need to get me one of those! Or do I? Or, will I put on weight or turn into Arnie over night?
Here is the lowdown!
Protein shakes are.... exactly what they say on the tin, they are a protein supplement. Protein is one of the three macro-nutrients our body needs daily to maintain growth and repair.
Now there is nothing in these bad boys that you cant get from food. But many people struggle on a modern carb processed diet to get their daily requirements. This is where a shake comes in handy. Of course I would rather you tuck into a nice grilled bit of chicken but these are perfect for on the go, or just after you train.
Your average whey protein can add around 20g protein to your daily intake.
So why is it so popular with us gym folk? because as mentioned before this magical macro nutrient supports growth and repair, which will aid in your goals to build or tone the body you desire.
Many health food stores over price protein so it is best to order online.
Dolphin Fitness offer an amazing range of these at decent prices.
Please note these whey proteins are not allergen friendly, so if you suffer any allergies i.e dairy, wheat, gluten or soy, you need to order elsewhere.
The link below is to the best completely allergen free vegan protein I have found. You need to register first then go to the nutrition tab. I recommend chocolate :)

Another amazing bonus is you can cook some amazing sweet treats with whey protein. Which will statisfy any sweet tooth, whilst eating clean.
