Whey Protein
Description:
Recently I have been taking Whey Protein after every workout. There are many benefits with taking whey protein but you have to make sure you are taking the right one too.

Often Whey Protein shakes have a lot of sugar and fat to hide the taste. You should try to find a powder whey protein that is low in sugar and low in far that you can add to skim milk. I use Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Double Chocolate flavor. It packs 24 grams of protein in a scoop and only 1.5 grams of fat.

What protein supplements does everyone else us on here if any? Do you use powder usually, how often do you take it?

Whey protein is also good to take on days you don't work out. As your muscles are recovering some protein can help them out. I often drink some at night before doing to bed since my body will be at rest for a long period.

Whey protein is also a nice healthy thing to drink after going out for a run. After every run I make sure to have a small scoop of protein with some milk to help recuperate. Also drink plenty of water while working out and after running.
