So you have bought your PROMiXX, now you just need to know what to put in it!
There are loads of different types of proteins and supplements that are designed to help your body do different things. You need to decide what you want to get out of your fitness training (maybe gain muscle or slim down) and then choose a supplement powder that helps you achieve this.
Protein is made up of amino acids and is an essential part of your diet because it is responsible for growing, building and repairing body tissue. It can also help you build muscle and lose fat.
Whey protein is the most popular type of protein and is used to stimulate muscle growth, as it is easily digestible so reaches your muscles faster. This is great for both pre and post workout shakes as it boosts recovery time and performance. A lot of people will just stick to a plain whey protein that is full of essential amino acids to boost their performance and muscle growth.
Having a decent amount of protein daily helps your body to burn off the fat, and not those amazing muscles you have been working so hard to get! Diet whey blends will aid fat loss by adding things like green tea extract which boost anti oxidants and metabolism. Protein also helps your body to know when it is full so you could use a meal replacement formula that contains carbohydrates, vitamins, fats and fibers alongside the whey protein if you are looking to slim down.
Bulking not sulking? Then you’re after a mass gainer shake – these are loaded with high calorie carbohydrates to help you gain that extra weight to build larger volume muscle. These tend to focus on slow digesting protein to allow for maximum muscle gain.
