Whey Protein Bars and Active Lifestyle Contest

Hi, this is Coreylee here. I've managed to make it though my first few months and things are heating up. That being said summer is almost over and the nights are getting cooler. This is perfect weather for evening walks and trail running.

But are you getting enough protein?

Protein is the building block of muscle, so you're protein requirements will increase with any form of training. A lack of protein will result in muscles loss, a weaker immune system, slower recovery time and less energy.

Try this simple calculator: The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of protein is 0.36 grams per pound of body weight or 56 grams of protein a day for the average male and 46 grams for the average female. For people with an active lifestyle the protein requirements jump to 1.7 grams of protein per kilo of bodyweight. If you want to build muscle as fast as possible, you will need at least 2.5 grams of protein per kilo of bodyweight.

Why Whey?

Whey protein contains amino acids such as leucine which increases protein synthesis and speeds up recovery time. Studies have also shown that whey protein increases cellular glutathione levels. Glutathione is an antioxidant that combats free radicals in the body and helps reduce the risk cancer.
