Read on to learn about picking the perfect protein powder for you!
Before I discuss protein powders I
think it is worth mentioning that you should only be using a protein powder if you cannot reach your recommended
daily protein amount through whole foods. Ideally you will get most of your protein through good sources like
chicken, fish, beef, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, or milk.
Because protein powders are convenient and fat to prepare, it can be tempting to rely on protein powders for all
of your protein needs. However, whole foods provide your body with other nutrients and vitamins that you might not
get from protein powders, so it is recommended that you use protein supplements as a last resort.
With that being said, the first thing you should consider when buying a protein powder is the price. Determine
what price range you would like to stay within and narrow down your choices to a few products.
When doing so, you should also look at how much protein powder you’re getting for the price and consider how
much you need. Even though other factors such as taste and nutritional content may seem more important, the fact is
that you don’t want your protein powder to break the bank.
Nutritional content comes in a very close second to price. When buying a protein powder you should consider the
amount of calories, amount of protein per “scoop”, and other things such as the amount of carbohydrates, fats, or
other vitamins and minerals.
A good protein powder will provide you with around 25-35 grams of protein per serving or scoop. If you are
trying to lose weight, you may want to look for one that is low in calories.
Conversely, if you are trying to gain weight you may not care so much
about the amount of calories. Your protein powder could also contain branch chain amino acids and other vitamins,
so be sure to compared different products.
Finally, you should consider the taste of the protein powder. You may be able to ask for free samples through
the companies website or if buying from a supplement store they may be able to give you a taste. If these options
aren’t available to you, read reviews of the products and be sure to note how each products ranks in regards to
Consider these three factors when investing in a protein powder supplement. Obviously, each factor will have a
different weight for everyone and it may come down to taste for one person while another prefers the price.
Comparing all of these different factors while thinking critically and doing your research will ensure that you get
the best protein powder for you.
