What is the Best Protein Powder?

Here Is My Protein Powder Review

Many people have differing opinions as to what is the best protein powder. Well, here is my protein powder review...

A few years ago my husband and I got into protein shakes as part of a Weight Loss Challenge. The benefit of protein powder shakes is that they can hit the spot when you are craving something sweet, like dessert, but want to eat something healthy. Using protein shakes or smoothies is also a great meal replacement, especially if you are eating 5-6 smaller meals each day and don't want to cook that much!

There are so many different ones to choose from it's often confusing to me which would be the best protein powder. Part of it depends on what you want to accomplish. If you really want to put on a lot of muscle, then you'll want a different protein powder than if you just want to lose a few inches off your waist.

What I Look for in a Protein Powder

As I've searched through health food stores, online stores and grocery stores for protein powders there were a few things that I look for.

  1. Natural ingredients - The more I've studied and learned about food, the more I realize the importance of reading labels and finding products that have natural ingredients. Our bodies just weren't made to take in all the processed foods we normally eat day in and day out.
  2. Low sugar - Study any reputable book on health and weight loss and you will quickly find out that a diet high in sugar is no good! It's almost impossible to avoid the harmful high fructose corn syrup anymore in food. Make sure to read your labels closely.
  3. Contains Vitamins and Minerals - If you're going to pay for protein powder, you might as well get a good dose of vitamins and minerals at the same time. Drinking protein shakes is one way to get a good dose of vitamins, although eating your fruits and vegetables is always best!
  4. Good for general health - I wanted to find a protein powder that would boost my overall health at the same time. Again, trying to get the biggest bang for my buck!
  5. Good Taste - It's important to me that I like the taste, especially if I'm going to be drinking these smoothies fairly often!
