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.

Good Protein Shake for Muscle Bulk

Good Protein Shakegood protein shake
Question:  When I starting hitting the gym, I was quite overweight. I have lost a lot of that fat and am now looking for a good protein shake that won’t put that fat back on but will build muscular bulk.  Any specific shakes would be a great help!

Good Protein Shake Recommendations

There are several sources of protein that feed muscle growth.  None of them, with exercise and taken in suggested quantities, should result in fat gain.  These proteins come from different route food sources, and each reacts with the body in a different way.

Good Protein ShakeCasein and Whey Proteins both come from cows.  Whey makes a good protein shake for right after a workout, since it is quickly and easily absorbed by muscle.  Casein makes a good protein shake for between meals and before going to sleep, as it is absorbed slowly and steadily over a long period of time.  You can take either protein alone, or in a combination shake.

Egg White Protein comes from eggs (duh!) and it is another high-quality protein.  You may see this described as albumin or “instantized egg albumin” on a package label.  This is a much better choice than the old raw eggs shakes of the past, due to egg-born illnesses.

Soy is another type of protein that you can commonly buy.  It isn’t a bad protein itself.  The downside of it is that soy may raise estrogen levels in males and may negatively impact thyroid function in high quantities.  While there is no need to avoid soy in general, you would want to avoid protein shake powders where soy is listed as the first or second ingredient on the label.

Good Protein Shake Brands

Here are several good protein shake mixes that I’d recommend.

First, a Whey/Casein Mix.

Here’s a good protein shake mix based on Egg White Protein.

Finally, a good protein shake mix blend that contains multiple protein sources. Soy is in this, but in a minimal amount.

No matter which mix you choose, you’ll end up with a good protein shake for muscle bulk.

Is it OK to Make a Protein Shake with Hot Water?

protein shakeI always use cold water with my protein shake but it tastes disgusting and it tastes so much better if its hot water.  Is it OK if I use hot water or I should keep using cold water?

Do You Like Your Protein Shake Cold or Warm?

The guy who asked this question about his Protein Shake on Yahoo! Answers seemed to like his hot.  I’ve always been a big fan of cold water for my shakes.

The consensus of the online community seems to be that there is no major affect on the power of the protein in a protein shake, no matter if it is made with hot or cold water, so long as it is consumed within an hour or two of mixing.  The one exception to this may be using boiling water.

How to make a protein smoothie less frothy?

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.
