I'm a vegetarian I go to the gym 6 times a week I know the whole 30 program is anti-protein powders, snacking, and dependence on fruits. But as a vegetarian who goes to the gym a lot, these help me get through the day without energy fatigue, one of my snacks is a banana with almond butter/cashew butter or unsweetened protein powder that I blend with bananas and unsweetened almond milk. I was wondering if anyone here was a vegetarian and an athlete and how they managed to get around this.
Hello. So I've been starting my day with protein powder (vegan) first thing in the morning to help readjust my (currently nonexisting) morning hunger. Protein scoop = +/- 25 grams. Problem is: it stays there forever. Not hungry 6-8 hours later. Still eat something (carrots, raw) at that time (lunch) to help reset my appetite. Anyway. One week later, still haven't adjusted to this "morning rock". Help! TIA!
Today is day one of my reintroduction and I am SO excited! However this morning I was hit with a question... I am unsure how to reintroduce my protein powders. Before my Whole30 I used to drink 1-2 servings every day. (only as a meal replacement or immediate post-workout) I have two different protein powders (both whey protein), one is Isagenix brand strawberry cream, and the other is Muscle Sport brand lean whey revolution chocolate flavor- my favorite (also has added fat burner). Here are the fist few ingredients of each protein powder even though the list is way longer... Isagenix strawberry cream: whey protein concentrate (undenatured), milk protein concentrate (undenatured), low heat nonfat dry milk, isomaltooligosaccharide powder, fructose, sunflower oil powder, olive oil powder, tapioca maltodextrin, flax seed powder, xanthan gum, triglyceride oil powder Muscle Sport lean whey revolution chocolate: fibersol 2, maltodextrin, tauric acid, glycocarn, l-carnatine tartrate, lecithin, whey protein isolate, hydrolyzed whey protein peptides, cocoa, cellulose gum, xanthan gum, carrageenan gum, lactase, bromelein, sucralose I was wondering your thoughts on these (are they "healthy" or are there harmful chemicals in them compared to other protein powders? etc.) How and when would you recommend re-introducing them? (In their own re-intro category, in the dairy re-intro category, etc.) Thank you!
