Long time protein powder users.

I'm thinking about starting a protein powder diet. I'm curious as to how its affected you. More energy, relaxation, etc.

Thanks

Re: Long time protein powder users.

I mostly use it for post-workout shakes. I find it's an easy way to get some nutrition down, although protein shakes are less satisfying than other protein sources such as meat or eggs.

Re: Long time protein powder users.

Thank you for your reply. But could you tell me how it has affected you over time? Has there been any noticeable changes, positive or negative?

Thank you, again.

Re: Long time protein powder users.

I don't think it's really affected me much either way. Might have helped me build muscle a little.

Re: Long time protein powder users.

It helps your muscles heal faster after workouts. I'll have one right after a workout and then early the next morning the day after the workout to help my muscles heal quicker. If I miss a protein shake, I'll notice a bit longer healing period the next day after I workout with weights. Not sure how to describe that, muscles just feel a bit more sore and for longer when I don't have protein after working out. I don't always use a protein shake for that though, I'll eat tuna or egg whites "fried" in coconut oil.

I use yellow pea protein powder and I've found it to be the best in terms of digestion. It never hurts my stomach like whey or soy protein powders. No protein powder I've ever tried makes me feel relaxed or energetic, it just feeds my muscles. I wouldn't advise consuming protein drinks only. It's not a complete source of nutrition unless you're using a meal replacement type. When I go without meat for awhile, I'll have more protein shakes than normal though. For example, one in the morning, then I'll have some fruit, one at lunch time, then I'll have a green salad, and one at dinner, then I'll have some sauteed veggies.

What type of protein powder are you using?

Re: Long time protein powder users.

Remember protein powder should just be a supplement to a good diet. Not a replacement.
I like HumaPro by ALR Industries. It's made specifically for the human body. 100% absorbed & 99% utilized.

Re: Long time protein powder users.

One bit of advice for long term is that I would recommend using a hemp protein powder rather than whey as you get less bloating and gas problems. If you get one with superfoods even better.

Hope this helps xx
