Which is the Best Protein Powder for Me?

While I generally believe the best way to get proper nutrition is with a clean, well balanced diet, protein powder certainly has a value to offer, especially because it’s so convenient and quick to digest.  While traveling, for example, packing a small container of protein powder makes more sense than filling a suitcase with cartons of eggs and chicken breasts.  For answers to some commonly asked questions about protein, check out this article from Bodybuilding.com.  So which is the best protein powder?  Well, that depends.

Best Protein Powder

The best protein powder for you depends on what you are trying to accomplish and your dietary restrictions.  LA Fitness posted a great blog answer this topic in detail.  Click here to read it in full.  The abbreviated recommendations are:

For self-proclaimed non-cookers: Egg protein/Albumin 

For vegetarians: Casein or soy

For regular exercisers/muscle building: Whey

For weight loss: Hemp

For allergy sufferers: Brown rice or pea

So the next time you’re in the store or online searching for the best protein powder, first ask what your goals and/or restrictions are and pick from there.

But isn’t protein powder gross? Yes, sometimes it is.  Thankfully we live in the Information Age and can easily avoid the worst of the flavors based on online reviews and recommendations.  Here are some well-liked flavors:

Chocolate powder:

Peanut Butter Powder:

Whichever flavor you pick, don’t forget to pick up a blender cup or personal blender for perfect consistency.  Even powders with great flavor are hard to stomach if they aren’t well mixed. 

Why protein shakes? Modern science has shown that muscle building can be substantially enhanced by boosting protein intake, especially immediately following a workout. Just be cautious not to undo your hard work by selecting a sugary powder high in calories.
