Whey Protein Powders
The following was posted on my Mind Body & Child Facebook page earlier this month after a discussion with two alpha males who felt a woman couldn't teach them anything about protein powders. I think it makes for a good entry here.
You can read more on the facebook page here (http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/Mind-Body-Child/79832052894?ref=ts)along with some comments that came in.
For all you body builders, fitness buffs, gym rats, protein power fanatics, etc.
Again I really suggest you stay away from whey protein powders there are so many better choices out there.
It's acidic, and really doesn't do your body good as the dairy companies would like you to believe as you consume their waste products... such as whey.
They read all the men's fitness and health magazines that tell them they need to eat whey bars and shakes and without asking why or wondering about what else is out there they drink back the flavoured chemicals!
Ohhh don't even get me started on some of the crap they proudly show me that they ingest!
Not only can they not pronounce the ingredients they have no idea what they are!
Further to my earlier rant about whey protein ...please for those of you who like to drive down and buy the huge tubs in the United States because it's cheaper ...a lot of those products in the state are not FDA approved and contain lead and mercury!
Find yourself feeling sick, bloated in your quick fix?
The toxins and chemicals are sick! You are getting low grade protein that is isolated and your body barely recognizes. Not to mention all the flour and other fillers.
