There is a myth that consuming protein will make you bulky. In fact protein aids in the repair of muscles after workouts. Those who train heavily need protein in their diet to prevent their muscles from breaking down preventing them from seeing the benefits of their training. Another fact is the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn and the more fat you lose. In short, protein is an amazing source for weight loss. When looking to boost your metabolism you should look into eating lean proteins such as red meat, salmon and chicken.
Protein powder can act as a meal replacement and leave you feeling fuller longer. While I am not against protein isolates I do believe you will get better results from an organic product. Even though a protein may say “Natural”, there is chance that it has some added sweeteners and artificial flavors and has undergone heavy processing. Raw proteins optimize health and are beneficial to your immune system.
Of course eating healthy itself is not cheap so we wouldn’t expect it to be any different for your supplements but you can some of the cleanest products for even less than your non-organic protein powder. There are also MANY organic protein powders that can be used as a meal replacement.
Hemp protein is an amazing source for vegans. Hemp is high in fiber which is beneficial for weight loss.
Like hemp protein, soy protein isolate is an amazing source for vegans. It is a protein that is isolated from soybean meaning it has been de-fatted so that it is less carbohydrate and fat over 90 percent protein. Soy protein provides less stomach irritation minimizing bloating.
Brown rice protein and pea protein are not considered complete proteins due to the amount of carbohydrates they provide. These carbohydrates are to be used as an energy source rather than fat storage. They have to be used in conjunction with other vegetable proteins but while they are not full proteins they are beneficial for those who are lactose intolerant and who have soy allergies.
