Should I Drink Protein Shakes While Trying to Lose Weight?

trying to lose weightI’m trying to lose weight.  I want to try to drink protein shakes while I go to the gym to lose weight.  Which one shall I drink?  I live in the UK.

I knew a girl in the gym who used to drink a protein shake within a half hour after working out at the gym.  It was so she does not lose muscle.  Is that true?

Trying to Lose Weight With Protein Shakes

Trying to lose weight isn’t difficult — all you need to do is burn more calories than you take in.  That’s the tough part.

Protein shakes won’t make you lose weight on their own.  Shakes add calories.  They don’t take them away.  So why could it help you?

As I said, trying to lose weight is easy if you burn more calories than you take in.  Muscle burns more calories than fat does.  Protein helps construct muscle, assuming you are exercising well in order to build that muscle.

If you are eating fats and extra carbohydrates and sugars, substituting protein shake calories for some of those ‘bad calories’ will likely help you build muscle (with exercise), and will also aid in weight loss.

So if you are exercising intensely, reducing bad food intake, and adding protein shakes can actually give you better results when you are trying to lose weight.

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe

Low Calorie Smoothie RecipeHere’s a novel approach to recording a Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe that I really love. OK, it is a bit long, but the narration and background music make it a pleasure to watch.

This is a very basic smoothie recipe that uses bananas as the only fruit. The addition of soy milk to the recipe makes this a great low calorie smoothie recipe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance. Just skip the optional yogurt if this is the case.

I think you’ll have to agree that the smoothie could be made in a few minutes, rather than the nearly 9 minutes that Cam takes in the recording. To end up with two great tasting portions of smoothies, with only about 233 calories each, in that amount of time is a great find.

Enjoy!

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 whole bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 6 ounces vanilla yogurt (optional)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend the bananas, soy milk and yogurt until smooth. Add the ice and blend until ice is finely chopped and well blended. Add honey and vanilla extract and blend till mixed fully.

Pour this into two glasses and enjoy the fruits of your labors from making this low calorie smoothie recipe.

How To Make a Frozen Margarita from Scratch

Making a Frozen Margarita

The Frozen Margarita has become common in bars and restaurants all across America.  Most of these are made from pre-made mixes using frozen margarita machines that blend the frozen slush at the perfect temperature to keep the drink frozen but not frozen solid.

Most of us will never be able to afford these machines for use in our own homes.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your own homemade Frozen Margarita, made the old fashion way, using raw ingredients.  Here’s one way to do just that.

Frozen Margarita Requirement List

  • 1 1/2 oz. 100% agave tequila
  • 1/2 oz. orange liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • A splash of simple syrup
  • A small dish of salt
  • 1 c. ice
  • A lime
  • A measuring jigger
  • A blender
  • A large margarita glass (or cocktail glass)

Step by Step Frozen Margarita Instructions

  1. Frost the glass by placing it in the freezer a couple of hours ahead of time.
  2. Cover a small dish with a thin layer of salt.
  3. Cut the lime in half. Set one half aside and cut a wedge from the other half.
  4. Rub the lime wedge around the rim of the chilled margarita glass, leaving an even ring of moisture along the outer edge.
  5. Turn the glass upside down onto the dish of salt and twist until a thin layer of salt adheres to the outer rim. Turn the glass right side up and set aside.
  6. Add one and one-half ounces of tequila to the blender, then add one-half ounce of orange liqueur.  Pour in one-half ounce each of lime and lemon juice.  Sweeten with a splash of simple syrup.  Finally, add one cup of ice.  For a creamier, smoother drink, freeze the lime and lemon juices into cubes, and blend those instead of the juice.
  7. Blend the margarita on medium speed for about fifteen seconds, or until smooth.
  8. Pour the drink into your frosted margarita glass.
  9. Garnish the drink with a lime slice on the glass, and serve right away.
