Whey to Get Some Protein
- I used to think I didn’t need them AND
- I didnt want to give up the usual 100 – 200 calories per serving these products run
I eventually realized that as I’m exercising more it may be helpful to take in more lean protein. And I happened to stumble across some articles that were singing the praises of the Biggest Loser option. Stating great taste. Lower calories than most supplements. Reasonably priced.
- Here’s the nutritional info on them: 1 scoop = 50 cal, 1g fat, 6g fiber, & 6g of protein.
I’m using the chocolate and vanilla powders in smoothies, Greek yogurt, oatmeal and even cereals. In my opinion, the benefit and taste of the protein outweigh the few calories it costs to add them into my snacks.
How about you? Do you use powders or supplements to make sure you’re getting the nutrition your body needs? Or do you only regulate through eating actual foods?
