Daily Protein Shake

Adding a protein shake to your daily routine provides an opportunity for almost anyone to up their protein game,” explains Dr. Liz Applegate, Director of Sports Nutrition Emerita at The University of California Davis. Whether you’re too busy to eat breakfast, concerned that your kids aren’t getting the nutrition they need, or trying to hit specific fitness goals like muscle gain or weight loss, additions of protein drinks to your lifestyle can help.

Fill The Gaps

When you’re rushing out the door in the morning, grab a shake. We know that sitting down for protein-packed breakfast is a luxury that frankly doesn’t make the cut most days.

“Consuming adequate protein is especially helpful for folks who skip meals, such as breakfast,” says Dr. Applegate. “This means missing out on much needed protein to start the day for immune system support, skin health and much more.” She offers these tips to get the most out of your shakes:

  • Grab a protein shake along with fruit or cut veggies to have during your morning commute or at your workstation.
  • Opt for a shake post-workout to supply some high-quality protein for muscle recovery.
  • Finish the day with a protein shake when you realize your food choice fell short on protein.

Get Toned

You don’t have to be shooting for bodybuilder status to have your eye on more muscle. And protein is vital to not just muscle building, but also cell recovery. “Muscle fibers must repair after a tough workout, and studies show that rebuilding of muscle proteins occurs optimally when a high-quality protein such as whey is consumed 30-60 minutes post workout,” Dr. Applegate explains. She offers these ideas:

  • Replace your post-workout snack like pretzels or an energy bar with a protein shake.
  • Blend a shake with fruits and veggies for a post-workout smoothie that is packed with nutrients.
  • Supplement a meal with a half serving of a protein shake to round out your greater protein needs with training.

Manage Your Weight

For people with weight loss goals, getting the nutrition your body needs can be a real balancing act. “The challenge for most dieters is meeting increased protein needs in the face of trimming calories,” says Dr. Applegate. “Your body needs more protein when you are in a calorie deficit to ensure adequate amino acids to do routine repair and maintenance on muscles and organs.” That’s not all—scientists have found that upping protein while on a weight loss journey can help your body burn slightly more calories, and help keep your hunger at bay. Where to start? Dr. Applegate offers these suggestions:

  • Drink a protein shake with low-calorie fresh vegetables as a satisfying light meal.
  • Make a filling and nutritious smoothie by blending a shake with a piece of fruit and a handful of kale or spinach.
  • Curb the hungries with a protein shake blended with ice cubes.
