I’m about to introduce you to the best thing that’s ever happened to me after a workout.
I am not normally a big fan of protein drinks- they tend to be heavy & gross & chalky. You know what I mean.
But this has literally changed my life – – > it’s that good.
– Zero carb
– 40 grams of pure WHEY protein
– 160 calories
– Aspartame, preservative & gluten FREE
– Zero impurities
– Tastes like a green apple jolly rancher
Uhm. You had me at “Zero Carb.”
The “green apple jolly rancher” part is just a bonus.
So we all know that we’re suppose to consume a certain amount of protein after a gym sess.
According to Dr. Oz “Protein is necessary to build, maintain and repair muscle… Some powders and drinks can offer a protein alternative without significantly increasing consumption of fats, carbohydrates, cholesterol or calories.”
According to Men’s Health “Protein is essential for maintaining and building muscle, but you don’t need to gulp down a carton of raw eggs like Rocky to get the maximum benefit. Consuming 20 grams of protein after your workout should do the trick…When it comes to choosing your 20-gram protein source, pick whey, a fast-digesting protein found in milk. The reason: ‘Whey is a rich source of leucine, an amino acid that activates protein synthesis,’ ” says Alan Aragon, M.S., Men’s Health’s nutrition advisor.
For men, if you’re trying to bulk up… get an avg of 30+ grams of protein.
For ladies, if you’re trying to maintain & tone…get an avg of 20 grams of protein.
Isopure is one of the few whey proteins that has a good assortment of fruit flavors. I could literally drink these things all day & I always look forward to them after my gym sess (sometimes I take a little sip before). Some people say that it has a weird after taste, which at first it does –> But it’s so mild that you barely notice it (a bunch of whiners!)
If you’re a first timer, you have to try the Apple Melon flavor. It’s super refreshing and you can get a 12 pack cheaper on Amazon HERE. (read the product review for other opinions)
Oh they also have a new COCONUT flavor with 20 grams of protein (also cheaper on Amazon HERE). I’m literally a huge fan of coconut and… my new obsession with OIL PULLING that gets rid of toxins, whitens teeth, reliefs migraines, reduces acne, etc. Read about it HERE.
Anyways…Isopure. If you just want to try an individual bottle, they also sell it at 24 Hr Fitness. Cheers!
