Hello y'all !

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend ! So my question is concerning Protein Shakes. I lost 55 Lbs so far with more cardio than strength training. I am very pleased with my progress so far, I will be at my goal weight very soon but I still don't feel myself in the body I dream about. I want to look leaner and stronger so I plan to start weight lifting after I finish Focus T25 (Beta).

These days, fitness is a hot topic in the office. Many of my male colleagues have been talking about and drinking protein shakes (different brands, flavors). I was thinking this can't be right for a girl; I will become bulky and I don't wanna be bulky; just leaner ! I did my research and found out that whey protein is pretty famous among fitness gurus and recommended for ladies too.

I am looking for the "perfect" protein shake for me with no artificial ingredients or sugar and that tastes good ! I wanna try the ON 100% Whey Gold Standard but I would like your opinion first.

Have you tried any protein shakes before? which one do you recommend? Pre or Post workout?! Any risks ?!

Thanks y'all in advance !

I have a protein shake or add it to food just about every day. I like Muscle Milk 100% Whey protein powder. I don't like to eat before a workout, so I usually will have mine after a workout or for breakfast.

The same one that a guy would use. There are no gender specific protein shakes. That's like asking what's the best chicken for women.

Optimum Nutrition is a fine choice in my opinion.

i use body fortress but mainly because its gluten free and cheap at walmart. I might get a better one later once i can afford it.

but i use a scoop almost everyday to meet my protien goals, in a shake, in 'pancakes', in eggs, in fudge, brownies, protien bars, etc. it wont make you bulky but does help you reach your protien goals if meat is not an option for you.

anything that comes in a pink box should work just fine for women...


























...i'm kidding. all protein shakes work equally well for men and women. whey doesn't discriminate. tongue

Exactly this, except whatever protein you like.

Protein is just protein. It's not like you'd be taking steroids.

I still want to know what chicken women should eat.

unless your protein shake has added testosterone, you will NOT get bulky. 90% of women do NOT have the testosterone levels needed to get bulky the way guys do.

Why would protein make you "bulky'? huh

Pick what you like and drink it. Protein is gender neutral.

my trainer who is pretty hardcore recommends True Nutrition's Whey Protein Isolate Cold Filtration. http://www.truenutrition.com/p-947-whey-protein-isolate-cold-filtration-1lb-milk.aspx

Well Look!! I am with you and dilligently take protein shakes everyday post or pre workout.... I lost alot of weight and use it as a meal replacement along with other things sometimes. It won't bulk... I don't like the artificial ones so I take Lifetime (unsweetened) also the liquid L-carnitine is great!! I now for breakfast take Shakeology. If you are interested in having a Muslim beachbody coach or doing a challenge with us, you can. Do you have a facebook? If so add me...
