The Pros Of Protein Shakes
PRO: For people who don’t have time to get their protein intake through food or want a quick recovery drink after a workout, protein shakes are a good alternative, according to nutritionist Keri Glassman, R.D.
What’s more, protein can aid in weight loss. Recent research published in the journal Cell found that digested proteins create a chain reaction in the digestive, nervous and circulatory systems that leave you feeling full hours after eating. That long-lasting satiety helps you eat less later on, which can mean a lower-or at least a steady-number on the scale.
While protein shakes can definitely benefit your body, there are some rules you need to follow to make sure your shake isn’t just setting you up for failure.
