Are protein shakes good for you?

It is without doubt better to eat real food to meet your nutritional needs. Protein shakes offer us a convenient way of boosting our intake. How "good" they depends on how they are used within the grand scheme of your whole diet, as well as how they complement other lifestyle-related behaviours. Research does tend to be fairly one-sided in supporting the use of protein powder in improving body composition, performance recovery, weight management and even as a means of reducing the impact of age-related loss of lean muscle mass.

Will protein shakes make me put on weight?

Everything eaten in surplus can result in weight gain, if your objectives are to boost protein intake and you are following a calorie controlled eating plan it is more likely that they will help to improve body composition, enhance recovery and better manage bodyweight.

What do protein shakes do for your muscles?

Protein shakes act similarly to other sources of protein, providing the building blocks required to repair and rebuild muscle after exercise induced damage.
