Do you shake?
And by "shake", I mean Protein Shake.
Do you drink them? Have you ever?
I was decidedly undecided about them, their purpose, validity and necessity seemed vague to me. Some people claim they're amazing and others say that unless you are working out VERY intensely, they're not necessary.
I guess I now fall in the middle of the road. I had been thinking of incorporating them in to my diet as I probably don't always get the protein I need and depending on the day, can spend hours at the gym.
A friend recommended the brand Myofusion and gave me a few samples. I have to say, they're not half bad. The taste is decent and the calorie content is relatively low. That was one of my biggest shocks when I started looking in to Protein powders, the high calorie content. Especially given that many of them taste like crap and need to be mixed with milk and other additives which only up the calorie count further. For this one, I just add water and find that it's almost enjoyable to consume. Who knew?
As for whether or not this will enhance my performance or recovery, I can't yet say. But I am going to give them a try and will keep you posted.
