Women need protein too…

Will protein make you bulky or look a little too muscular for your liking? No. There’s a massive misconception that consuming protein somehow adds a large amount of muscle.

  • Adequate protein + Training = Muscle tone.
  • Adequate protein + Heavy Weight Training = More muscle.

So, depending on what you’re after, consuming protein each day is not only healthy, it is absolutely essential to a healthy body and mind.

What’s the best protein for women? Well, a variety of protein sources throughout a healthy diet is the absolute best.

But which types of protein? It is absolutely essential to identify the right protein sources for you on an individual level.

Everyone metabolises (processes) food types differently and this means your hormonal response (how you feel after your meal) will differ also.

The main sources of protein are;

  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Fish
  • Eggs

And tofu or tempeh if you’re eating predominantly plant-based.

Within a couple of weeks you can begin to assess how you feel after consuming different types of protein. The ones that you love eating and leave you feeling satisfied, energised and/or staying regular (the number 2’s), well, it may just be the right type of protein to consume.

What about protein powders? Same again. A protein powder is no different, it should leave you feeling great and become one of the sources of protein you consume, along with the others.

A variety of protein is best.

What is the best protein powder for women? A recent meta-analysis on the effects of whey protein consumption on adults found an increase in lean body mass (muscle tone) without any negative effects on body fat percentage (Damaghi et al., 2022).

This news may be shocking to some females given the general misconception about whey protein supplements.

However, including a high-quality Australian grass-fed whey protein powder into your diet could have a dramatic impact on your wellbeing.

How can I include a whey protein powder into my diet?

  • Protein Smoothies
  • Protein Shakes
  • Protein Bowls
  • Protein Baking (breads, pancakes, energy bars, balls)

Essentially, including a whey protein into your daily nutrition is very simple. Just one scoop of Life Grip Protein (found here), will provide you with a delicious 21g of complete protein that can help you reach your daily protein intake.

If you’re not yet familiar with the positive effects of a healthy, daily protein intake, then once you start, you’ll be glad you did.

But which protein? Well, we here at Life Grip believe a whey protein concentrate, derived from the milk of Australian grass-fed dairy cows is best.

And…that’s exactly what Life Grip Protein is, with no sugars, artificial flavours or anything else you can’t pronounce.

A delicious, creamy protein powder that’s great for women. You can find it here.
