To Whey or Not to Whey

Saturday, January 07, 2012

I have been reading on the benefits of post-workout feedings and since I do not eat breakfast until after my workouts, I was very interested in the proper proportions of macronutrients for this sensitive time for my muscles and blood sugar.
I have found a delicious answer and it is not just any whey. Whey is recognized among many fitness experts as a great feed for the after-workout period, but I was concerned about a lot of things going on with whey and I could not find any that was isolate free, cold processed, and sourced from pastured, grass-fed cows.
Well, now I have found it and experimented with it and was thrilled to find out that even the divine chocolate flavored one did not elevate my blood sugar one hour post meal and it is delicious! AND I lost a seven pounds this week while taking it within an hour of my workout every day. I have my lunch an hour after that.
Of course, we cannot advertise here; but it would be advertising only if I were selling something, I am thinking. I am just trying to pass some helpful info along. I get no consideration or remuneration at all for passing this along to you. The brand name of this whey is Warrior Whey and it is sold by Defense Nutrition online from their site. Dr. Mercola sells it also; he may have a private label for it, but it is Warrior Whey.

    I am not sure I can do Whey because I am allergic to Casein. I know they are separate proteins, but they are both DAIRY and I have eliminated dairy. Still, I could call the company and ask!! Thanks for the tip :)
