Go Way Whey Out

Back in the day, people got their protein from their daily diet of vegetables, meat, dairy products, and the like. Nowadays, people are packing in protein with protein shots in their morning orange juice, and similar methods. (A side note: I hope its flavorless protein powder, otherwise your juice would start to be a darn interesting.)

Why are they doing this? There are two reasons. The first reason they could be supplementing in such a manner is that they believe there their regular diet doesn't include enough nutrients. Does it mean that they should simply change what they eat everyday? Sometimes. However, there is a group of folks that believes that are food has been leached of nutrients and the same apple is not brimming with the same level of nutrition as in yesteryear, through genetic engineering and the quality of the soil. For the folks who fall in that camp, organic whey is available, as artificial ingredients may negate their whole reasoning for using it.

The second group of people who are into using protein powder just wants results. In other words, they just want to bulk up and that is that. At least whey protein is a safer way to do so than to randomly choose something off the shelf that contains hormones or chemicals.

Whichever description is closer to the way you are, be safe and be smart.
