Women often stay away from protein shakes because they think they’re only for bodybuilders. It’s true that high-protein shakes can help develop lean muscle mass, which is a benefit for all women, but it’s also true that shakes can encourage fat loss, deliver essential nutrients and even improve metabolic activity. According to the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,” high-quality proteins are more satiating than either carbohydrates or fats, and they may have the ability to improve the body’s metabolism.
I drink protein shakes when I do a lot of weight training (since I want to build muscles), but I also drink them for lunch on busy days at work when I don't have time to get lunch. They are really filling and the Isopure brand that I use also taste good (some protein drinks taste horrible). I'm also careful with not drinking protein drinks which have a lot of sugar or carbs, and this one has none! Cookies and cream, yum!
