Whey protein is only for bodybuilders
It’s true, that people who train need a higher amount of protein. However everybody needs protein to maintain a strong and healthy body.
Whey protein is unnatural
Whey protein is a natural product originating from milk
When producing cheese from milk, you get two things; cheese and whey. Some whey protein powders have added sweeteners and flavours – but if you want to avoid that, you can choose an unflavoured variant.
Whey protein will make you gain fat
Whey protein is low in both fat and carbohydrates
Sure, all foods will make you gain fat, if you eat more than your body needs, but eaten in the right proportions, whey protein will only help your body build and maintain muscle and bones.
- On WheyForLiving we refer to proteins with the DIAAS score 1 or above as complete proteins.
