It’s been awhile and I’m more then ever happy to start blogging again. I be so busy in my life trying to fix the wrong things, I forgot to post for everyone. This blog is about “my mistakes”.
One of the hardest things to do is to fix my mistakes. Although it may not be the first or second try as long I keep trying is what matters to me. Ain’t nobody perfect, lessons and obstacles is part of life.
Three things you should remind yourself !

Yep, it is tuna, StarKist Chunk Light Tuna is a great source of protein, with 17g of proteins in a pack. That is a lot of proteins, isn’t it? If you don’t have your grill tilapia, grab you some tuna. Chunk light tuna has 70 calories and contains natural omega-3s. There are many ways you can eat your tuna. I enjoy mines with crackers, and sometimes healthy bread. If you don’t like tuna, there are different varieties such as chicken. The ones that come in a can does not have as many proteins. So you may want to look for the packs!

Protein shakes and natural food proteins have their pros and cons to the human body. Ask often is the question, do protein shakes work? In this blog, your questions will be answered upon my research. Protein is an essential nutrient for the human body to put on muscle mass. A protein shake is similar, however, it may lack some nutrients that foods provide.

In a powder form, protein shakes have the advantage of reaching the muscle way faster. On days where you may miss your meal prep, substituting it with a shake. But, it should never be your only way of getting protein. After a hard workout, should be the perfect time to consume the shake. Protein shakes consist of other nutrients in them as well. A single serving also has vitamins and minerals that your body may need. However, there are certain macronutrients you won’t find, such as good fat. Combining your shake with a healthy balanced diet is.
Negative side effects
- gastrointestinal distress
- nutrient deficiencies
Food is always a better source when you’re looking to gain muscle mass. Protein servings in eggs, meat, and chicken may not be as high as a single scoop of the shake. But, you’re getting good fat and calories that’s essentials for the day. Protein shakes are supplements and should not be the main source of your protein. Also, your daily healthy intake should consist of all the nutrients and minerals you need.
When it comes to protein shakes vs food protein, they both will provide positive results. The chances of you receiving negative side effects are from the shakes. Before taking any protein shake you should always ask your doctor. Your age, weight, and gender play a role when taking any kind of supplements.

The best whey protein shake I ever had, Gold Standard 100% Whey protein
Jerome Saytaypha | April 25, 2020
When choosing a protein shake it can be tough with many options to choose from. Ranging from 24 grams of whey protein up to around 60 grams, and with 20 different flavors. You can find yourself in the store for quite a while debating on which one you should buy. Truth is you would end up choosing a random one, or you may pick one that sticks out with its unique design. For a while I have tried many protein shakes out there. Here I will tell you why Gold Standard is my favorite out of all of them. First, I want to tell you about the different types of Gold Standard whey protein. Then on why this is the best protein shake I ever had.
WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE VS WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE
There are two common forms of whey protein. Whey protein isolate and Whey protein concentrate, the difference is whey protein isolate is purer. Isolate contains about 10% more protein than concentrate. Gold Standard comes 100% whey and they also have whey isolate. The difference in proteins plays a major role in gaining muscle. When I first tried I notice a big difference from the protein shakes I’ve tried before. Amuse from not have to use a blender or something to stir it to break it down. Now with that being said it is much easier for your body to absorb and digest. Isolate is fat-free and also low in carbs. This is one of the main reasons why I have Gold standard as my favorite.
- Double Rich Chocolate
- Birthday Cake
- Cake Batter
- Chocolate Hazelnut, Malt, Peanut Butter
- Cookies and Cream
- Extreme Milk Chocolate
Gold Standard 100% has as many as around 20 flavors. I have not tried all of the flavors, but I plan to in the future. The flavor I always get is Double Rich chocolate, it has a good taste. It sort of tastes like hot cocoa to me, and I love hot cocoa. When mixing a scoop in some milk, it adds more protein to it. Now you have chocolate milk, or you may add peanut butter to get the peanut butter taste. It depends on what type of taste you want. I would give the taste 5 stars.
LEAN BODY MASS
If you’re looking to bulk, this protein might not be for you. Standard has Only 24 grams of proteins you will see lean body mass, the results I wanted. Add milk instead of water, with a scoop of peanut butter you add more protein. Putting on lean body mass, absolutely I got what I was looking for from Gold Standard. Thank you for reading, hope you find this blog to be helpful. Also, remember everybody is different, results may be different.
Have a good day
