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.

How Do I Keep Frozen Drinks Frozen After Serving?

frozen drinksKeeping Frozen Drinks Frozen

I have a great recipe for frozen Pina Coladas, but every time I make them they become liquefied towards the end and I would like them to stay frozen the whole time. Its not a question of am I drinking them too slow, because I’m not, trust me.

  • 6oz captain morgan spiced rum
  • 6oz creme of coconut
  • 8oz pineapple juice by dole
  • 1 banana
  • 4 cups of ice

The drink melts. Rather most of the ice floats to the top and a liquid layer about 2-3 in. up from the bottom forms. This is in the glass after they have been served, not the pitcher, which of course I put in the freezer until someone needs another. I already tried more ice which just ruins the flavor. Any ideas would be worth a try.

protein shake

We try to make smoothies with protein powder, fruit, milk, and ice, and it always seems too frothy at the top. I’ve tried to look it up finding only a few solutions. I’ve heard that less liquid prevents froth, but I’m not sure if it’s true.
