 protein shake at home
 Protein shakes have long ceased to be only an element of the diet of bodybuilders. Today, they use people who are moderately involved in sports, lose weight, try to maintain a normal weight, or just want to increase the proportion of protein in the diet, but do not have the spare time to frequently cook meat or fish because they make a protein shake at home.

Protein shakes contain large amounts of protein needed for muscle growth, increase endurance, as well as for a variety of body functions.


Why do we need protein shakes?

Regardless of whether you are doing powerlifting, bodybuilding, long distance running, or just fitness to lose weight, you need protein for muscle growth. With athletes all clear, but many question arises - what does it do for those who want to lose weight? Moreover, many women are afraid that because of fitness combined with protein shakes, they will look like girls who are professionally engaged in bodybuilding, which few people can name examples of femininity and beauty - in its usual sense. In fact, all these fears are unfounded.

  • Firstly, that the body of a woman was even very remotely resemble the shape contestants Miss Olympia, you have to train very, very much. Besides, it does take a lot to eat, and take large doses of protein supplements - one or two protein shakes can not do.
  • Secondly, if you burn body fat and your muscles are not well developed, after weight loss you will not really be beautiful, elastic body. The body was that way, we need strong, developed muscles, and for their growth needs protein.

At the same time, we should not forget that a protein shake - it's just a tool to quickly produce large amounts of protein, not magic potion that allows without effort to lose weight or build muscle. Typically, these cocktails are relatively low in calories, but they still have calories, and should be taken into account when planning your diet. If losing weight on this, as a rule, do not forget the athletes, especially beginners often make the mistake and swallow shakes after training, continuing to eat normally. As a consequence, the volume increases are not the biceps and waist. The reason for this is simple - all the calories that could not spend, whether they are prepared from fat, carbohydrates, protein, or be deposited in the form of fat.

If a protein shake itself could promote muscle growth, all-around for a long time would look like statues of ancient gods. However, if you use a protein shake well, it will help you get a really good figure. And it does not necessarily consult a sports doctor, and even with a trainer - just watch so that in your diet, along with cocktails, had less calories than you spend. Or, if you do not need to lose weight - the amount consumed and calories burned equal.
