Introducing Protein into your Daily Regimen

You might be asking yourself, why do I need to add protein to my diet? The reality is that everyone needs protein to maintain, repair, and grow muscle tissue, no matter their fitness level. If you want to learn more about what protein does for you, read our latest blog article here. If you also haven’t decided on which protein powder to use, you can  try a BiPro sample packet.

Once you’ve decided to add protein, here are some ideas on how to ease into adding it to your daily food intake:

For a quick snack on-the-go:

Grab your protein shaker cup for easy mixing, and add the BiPro chocolate, unflavored or vanilla, directly into your cup with 6 to 8 ounces of water or any type of milk. You can also add BiPro to your favorite drinks or snacks, including yogurt, oatmeal, or orange juice.

Use it as a meal replacement:

When you’re rushing out the door for work in the morning, the last thing you have time for is to make a quick breakfast to kickstart your day. That’s one scenario where protein shakes can come in handy. Add a scoop of BiPro protein powder, 1 cup of vegetables like spinach or zucchini, with a handful of berries, and a liquid like water or almond milk.

Refuel post-workout: 

After you complete your exercise, there is a post-workout window — a thin slice of time to intake nutrients after a workout for the biggest benefit. Protein supplementation post-workout is beneficial, particularly in helping individuals recover after a tough session and potentially increase muscle and strength gain. So, how should post-workout shakes fit into your nutrition? It’s really up to personal preference. If you want to have a shake, that’s cool. If you’re going to make a whole food meal, that’s more than OK, too. Either approach is valid, so it’s a personal preference. Stomach sensitivity may play a role as well. Some individuals have a harder time taking in whole food directly after a workout. A shake is a proper substitution to get in a quick dose of protein in those cases.
