Spoiler alert! Yes, our protein powders are great for women! Now that that’s over with...
The question posed in the title of this blog is an excellent one, and an obvious one to ask whenever you are searching for protein powder to buy. After all, so much of the supplemental protein market is aimed at men; nearly every advertisement and label features a bulked-up man with his shirt off. Is whey protein even intended to be used by women?
Women need protein too, especially those who are looking to build muscle. Here’s some advice for women who are interested in using our protein shakes, powder, and power bars.
It’s always best for men and women to consult a doctor before going on a protein-heavy diet. So whoever you are, make sure to get your doctor involved in your diet and exercise regimen.
Women are different from men, no surprise there. Women tend to need less protein in their diets per pound of body weight. Make sure to do some research and adjust accordingly.
That brings up another difference between men and women…
Protein is a muscle builder, and the places where men and women want noticeable muscles tends to be different. While many men want to bulk up all over, women tend to focus on calves, toned arms, and abdominal muscles.
Here’s another time when it’s important to involve your doctor. Are you starting overweight and looking to lose fat while building muscle? Or are you underweight and are using protein shakes in order to give your body what it needs to build muscle?
While low carb protein powders can be used as a meal replacement, be sure that you take a women’s multivitamin so that you’re sure to get the minerals and vitamins you need.
Protein powder is a great way to help you get the body you want, whether you’re a man or woman. Get started today with OhYeah!
