Best Protein Shake For Weight Loss

Best Shake To Lose Weight

Whey protein is the hands down winner if you are looking for a shake to help you lose weight. It has every essential amino acid and it is animal based, so these EAA’s are more readily absorbed by your body. In addition, it is one of the cheapest proteins that you can buy and it is available at nearly every grocery store in the United States.

Problems With Dairy

If you have problems with dairy, you may have problems with whey. Here is what you can do if you still want to incorporate the best protein shake for weight loss into your diet. Start slow.

Gradually build up from 1/2 a shake to a full shake to give your body time to adapt. If that does not work, consider PEA protein.

Pea protein also has all of the essential amino acids but they are plant based and in lower quantities. It is still a great protein shake, just not the best like whey is.
