3 Top Protein Powders to Use

Yesterday, I looked at whether you really need to use protein powders for weight loss. While you don’t, there will always be some who prefer to use supplements or need to supplement their lifestyle or diet because of choices or needs.

Because of that, I want to make your choices and search for protein powders to use easier. That’s why I’m sharing the top three powders available for women who want to lose weight.

Whey protein powder is considered the better option out there. It has less lactose in it, which helps to keep the sugar content down and helps those with dairy or lactose intolerances and allergies.

Optimum Nutrition

This whey powder tends to make the top of any list of protein powders. That’s because it’s affordable, effective, and easy to digest. It comes in different sizes, but if you’re new to whey protein powders I’d suggest getting the smaller packet first to trial it. If it works for you, then invest in the larger packets to save money.

The powder is full of amino acids to help with the repair of muscles, so you can do more throughout your workouts.

Cellucor Cor-Performance

There are very few carbs and fats in this protein powder and it is fast acting. While it’s 100% whey, it does have a sweet taste. The best part is that it doesn’t have as much of the badness that other whey protein powders have. Some people say that it curbs their sugar craving by having some of this after their workout.

This one comes in different flavors and works well when mixed with water or skimmed milk.

BSN Syntha-6

This is one of the cheaper options on the market, especially when you look at the larger packets. It is packed with amino acids and gives a creamy texture, even when drank with water. It also has a small amount of good fats and some fiber to help support the body.

The only thing that it doesn’t do is support the fat burning workout level. It will support the higher endurance workouts, though.

These are just three to get started with. I really do recommend starting with the smaller tubs of the protein powders to give them a test for a few weeks. Once you find one you’re happy with, then you can opt for buying in bulk to save more money.

  1. I once tried egg protein powder when I was on a strict diet but that has been a while.

    I do have a stock of protein bars that help when I am out on the walking/running track.

    Good info, thanks.

    1. I've never heard of egg protein powders.

  2. My oldest son is in to drinking protein shakes from that powder you mention. he is developing his muscles and looking good.

    1. My husband used to have one of these. We can't find it in stores where we are now, so he's had to make a switch. I'm waiting for him to tell me what it's like.

  3. It does help to find the right supplements for your fitness regimen. Some fitness clubs and gyms have their preferred brands but I guess one should find the perfect match for one's self.

    1. Yeah, I've noticed that with various clubs and gyms. I often wonder if it's the fact that they recommend them or just that they get a deal for selling them. The cynic in me thinks the latter, so I like to do my own research.
