What is the protein content of protein shakes?
Everyone, including athletes, can meet their protein needs without supplements or shakes. When choosing protein shakes, read the label to select the one with the composition that meets your needs.
Protein shakes vary in protein content, you can even measure it by protein powder quantity. 'If you're a body builder, you're going to shift to the drinks that have a bit more protein'. like Worldwide Sport Nutrition says Antonio. Endurance athletes are likely to favour drinks with more carbohydrates, he says, but the most important thing is simply to drink something after your workout.
If your goal is to lose body fat, change to a protein shake that's mainly protein, has fewer carbohydrates, and only a little bit of fat, such as Slim-Fast. 'Make sure the product is more than 50% protein if your goal is body fat loss', Antonio says.
For those in the middle range -- someone who works out regularly but isn't at the competitive level -- a popular protein shake is Muscle Milk. It fits somewhere between high-protein and high-carbohydrate shakes, says Antonio. Muscle Milk contains milk protein, combined with carbs and fats. It contains more fat than the average protein shakes, he says, but it's a type that does not increase cardiovascular risk.
