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.

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 Transformation.com 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.
