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.

Making a High Protein Strawberry Peach Fruit Smoothie

peach fruit smoothieHigh Protein Strawberry Peach Fruit Smoothie

Here’s a great way to enjoy the taste of a peach fruit smoothie while adding the benefits of a protein shake.

Starting with the goodness of skim milk, peach slices and frozen strawberries makes this a healthy smoothie, chock full of vitamins and fiber. A packet of single-serving fruit powder adds flavor and sweetness to the strawberry peach fruit smoothie without adding calories. Top it off with some EAS 100% Vanilla Whey Protein Powder to make this a post workout shake.

But one of the best portions of this video is the use of a true Smoothie Maker instead of a blender. With a Smoothie Maker, the smoothie is poured into a cup using the power of the blades. The bottom-fed spout ensures you get more of your smoothie into your cup, reducing waste. This video shows this better than an other I’ve seen.

Lo-Protein Protein Shake

I’m a HUGE fan of Body-for-LIFE and Bill’s new site at but this guy seems to have missed the boat a bit on the protein shake process. Though you may get some protein from the milk and yogurt, most protein shakes actually add a protein powder.

I love the use of the coffee grinder for pulverizing some of the dry ingredients. That alone makes this video worth watching.
