Answer #7

It depends on what your goals are. But by taking the time to actually spend the money and buy the protein drink, it may get you into the right frame of mind to eat healthy and to be more mindful of your eating habits. Protein powders are good motivators and when combined with the right weight training program it will in the long run restore your broken down muscle cells. It is also very convenient and easier to make yourself a smoothie and mix the protein powder than to sit down and eat tuna or boiled eggs. But in the long run is just another tool that you can use in a comprehensive exercise program.

Answer #9

Not really, The best way to get protein is from food, not supplements. It is easy to get all the protein you need from a healthy diet. There have been no good objective studies that found any benefit to these supplements.
