// Protein and Your Goals

Most are confuse when it comes to protein shakes and supplementing. Are they for weight loss? Toning? Bulking up? Are they safe? The answer is they are safe and you can use shakes for anything you want. The outcome is determined by your exercise regime and what you are putting in your shakes to make them low or high in calories.

If you are looking to tone or lose weight you can supplement shakes in addition to a good clean diet that is full of lean meats and vegetables. For this goal you should also be lifting weights to create lean muscle three to five times a week with high reps. You should also be doing cardio intervals five to six times a week. The shakes should be kept low in calories so find a good tasting clean protein and mix with just water, soy, milk, or almond milk.

If you are looking to add more mass to your body you should be lifting a heavier weight and keep the reps low. Add more calories to your shakes if you want to bulk up and mix it in fruits and veggies. You can use gainer instead to further increase the calories to bulk or for those of you needing more calories throughout the day if you are athletic.

I recommend Rivalus products. They are a Canadian based company, taste great, clean and scientifically tested. It is important to make sure the protein that you are taking is clean and safe. Not all products are tested so be careful with which ones you choose.

The following are a few of my personal and favorite recipes. All of my recipes have variations for the liquid that include: water, juice, almond milk, non fat milk, or soy milk.
