Should I Use Protein Powder Supplements?

Posted by:

Clients often ask me whether they should use protein powder supplements and if so, which one? As with all my answers, it usually “depends”.

This can be rectified by adding a good 4-8 ounces of protein with your 3-5 meals per day depending on your current body weight.

Posted by:

That’s a pretty bold statement from someone who isn’t a Registered Dietitian but I think it catches the eye. We’ll start over with “Why almond milk is better than dairy milk for Taylor Carpenter“.

It’s been about 3 months since I’ve converted from Fat Free dairy milk to Almond milk and I’ll tell you why. I like to eat and right now I eat roughly 2900 calories per day, for me that number is very easily attainable. I would much rather ...

What is CASEIN Protein?

Posted by:

Nowadays there is a large variety of protein supplements to choose from. The two most popular types are whey and casein protein. At the end of the day your goal should be to reach the proper amount of macronutrients (protein, fats, and carbs) along with meeting your caloric goal for the day.

To take it one step further once you have that down is to possibly utilize a variety of proteins. They actually make blends along with varying qualities of whey ...

REVIEW: Vitacost Whey Protein Complex Chocolate

Posted by:

This is reviewing Vitacost.com’s generic brand of protein Vitacost Whey Protein Complex w/ BCAA’s Chocolate flavor. Yesterday I positively reviewed Dymatize Elite XT Protein and this is the product I took before that.

Before Vitacost, I would get my Protein from costco which was manufactured by the creators of Muscle Milk. Over the course of 2 years, the 6lb bag at Costco had risen from $27.99 to $48.99 for the same EXACT product! Whey in general has gone up ...

REVIEW: Dymatize Elite XT Protein

Posted by:

This is the protein supplement I am currently using and I’m very happy with it! I’ve only tried Rich Vanilla and Rich Chocolate as I’m not the type to experiment with those odd protein flavorings(blueberry, cake mix, ice cream, cherry, strawberry, etc..). Originally when I first started using whey protein I went with Optimum Nutritions 100% Gold Standard which is indisputably one of the top protein brands on the market. Over the past few years the price of whey has ...
