The Truth about Protein.
What Are Protein Powders?
The three common ones are whey, soy, and casein protein.
- the most commonly used, a complete protein (contain all 9 essential amino acids)
- It’s possible to build complete protein from plant-based foods by combining legumes, nuts, and grains
- But you’ll need to consume 20 to 25 percent more plant-based protein to reap the benefits that animal-derived sources provide
- Another milk protein
- Slower-absorbing but more sustained source of amino acids
- A great choice for a snack before you hit the sack.
Sources of Protein
- 4-ounce hamburger contains 30 grams of protein
- 6 ounces of tuna has 40 grams
- A single ounce of cheddar cheese has 7 grams
- Nuts and Bean, dairy products, eggs, meat, and fish
- “Take protein powders immediately after a workout”
- Before, during, and after a workout, carbs are what your body needs
- This is fuel for the body
- Research shows that following a workout, the body needs fuel with a 4-1 or 5-1 ratio of carbs to protein
- Protein powders are not really necessary if you have access to a normal, healthy diet
- if you’re struggling with your weight, fat itself is not the culprit; carbs are the likely problem.
