Coach Lew shares his secret protein shake recipe for the most delicious and nutritious protein shake!
Protein intake has always been controversial in the health and fitness realm. How much protein you should consume and what kind of protein has always been argued about in the medical and fitness professions.
Protein is necessary for your body to build and rebuild muscle and other tissue. The type of protein is absolutely crucial and important. The old belief that a protein is a protein is incorrect! I will not bore you with loads of facts and figures but will give you a short and concise explanation and then reveal a delicious and effective recipe to ensure your proper protein consumption.
The biggest difference in protein is whether it is a complete or incomplete protein. A complete protein is one that contains all of the essential amino acids. The meaning of essential amino acid is one that can not be produced by your body and must be consumed. A non essential amino acid is one that your body can create. The obvious being is you must consume the essential amino acids from an outside source and you must get the proper amount of each so your body can utilize the protein fully in the building and rebuilding process.
The other big difference is what other substances may be present in your protein such as lactose in whey protein which is disruptive to the digestive system. This is why I highly recommend an egg protein or quality plant based protein!
