3 Mistakes That Actually Make Your Protein Shake Bad For You

July 23, 2015 1 min read

Protein shakes are my holy grail when it comes to my diet. They provide me needed energy and help keep my weight in check, especially when I make them for breakfast. But a protein shake is only as good as the ingredients you put in it, so here are 3 major mistakes people make when it comes to creating a good-for-you shake!

#1 Using The Wrong Protein 

The type of protein you use depends on how you intend to consume your shakes. For a post-workout fix, whey protein is key. But as a meal replacement, it could leave you feigning bad-for-you foods instead of filling you up. Casein and soy are proteins you simply want to avoid for their reactivity and thyroid damaging properties. Try non-soy, non-dairy powders from cranberry, chia, rice or even defatted beef protein.

#2 Using Powders With Bad Ingredients 

Many powders are manufactured with tons of excess sugar and preservatives! Check your labels and look for powders with no more than 5 grams of sugar per 100 calorie serving.

#3 Making Your Shake A Treat 

It's not a milkshake! You can make a protein shake taste good without adding sugar or sugary milks and nut butters. Go with fresh fruit for a little sweet kick, or honey.
