    Yes, why not? Drink one after every intense workout. If you don’t do much it won’t make a difference .

    someone in my family drinks them, but she drinks them to gain mass and muscle, not to loss weight, she is really strong now and the shakes have improved her athletic performance. Also you can get them in really yummy flavours like strawberry and chocolate 🙂

    Even if you were to strictly weight train and purposely gain muscle, I promise you won’t look the slightest of bulky even after a year. Girls have less testosterone than males so hypertrophy is hindered for women (the process of increasing muscle size).

    And Yes! Protein shakes aid in getting that extra protein intake which helps for muscle repair and weight loss!

    Sure you can, the only reason why most girls stay away from protein shakes is because often times it can have ingredients, calories, sugar, and carbs that could easily cause a girl to get too bulky. I would highly recommend taking a “Whey protein Isolate”. Isolate shakes have zero calories, zero carbs, and zero sugar, they also mix better and taste better but they are a little bit more expensive, not much though but it’s worth it. I take it because I want to keep my body fat percentage very low and I myself have a more lean body type being a swimmer and distance runner. The one I use is called Nectar, i’d go with the Chocolate Truffle flavor, it’s delicious.

    @ClickMaster Yeah well Professional Bodybuilders, MMA Fighters, and many other athletes have been taking protein for decades. Go read the nutritional facts on the back of a bottle of Optimum Nutrition Whey, you’ll see a huge list of other nutrients in fact it can double as a multi-vitamin. Your facts are WRONG it doesn’t have more calories than sugar (especially isolates), Some Olympians may not use it because they’re not trying to get a bigger physique and some are, and as far is it not giving you muscle …

    ….well it sure worked for me.

    Yes you can drink protein shakes! They’re a great supplement if you’re trying to build muscle but not getting enough protein in your diet (you should aim for 1 g of protein for every pound you weigh.)

    Good luck!

    Gender has nothing to do with taking protein shakes. However. intelligence does. Smart people don’t take them and here’s why.

    • You don’t need them.
    Our species has survived for 150,000 generations without supplements. You grew from an infant to what you are today by eating food. There is absolutely no reason to take protein supplements if you have a normal diet. And, If you don’t, fix the diet. If you take more protein than you body needs, the rest will be either excreted in urine, burned (metabolized), or used to synthesize fat.

    • They are a poor source of nutrition
    Protein supplements contain mostly protein and little else of value. Protein-bearing food contains a constellation of nutrients…vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and many more things your body can use to maintain itself. So, just adding one thing out of many to your diet is a bad nutritional deal for you. Food is the best nutritional bargain there is.

    • Protein does not make muscles grow.
    Exercise creates the stimulus for muscle growth. To turn that stimulation into growth, your body requires a host of nutrients including carbs, enzymes, amino acids, and more. Supplementing your diet with one thing but not others makes no sense at all and only proves that you are getting all you need from your food anyway.

    • Protein is a diet killer and has the same calories as sugar.
    Protein has the same caloric value as carbs or pure sugar (4 calories per gram). Protein can be as big a diet killer as sugary junk foods. There is no advantage to getting more protein than you need and here’s how much you need –> according to the best minds in nutrition on the planet, the US CDC.

    • Every US federal Health Agency warns against using supplements
    The CDC and NIH and many other health agencies warn that no one should take protein supplements without the recommendation of a health care professional. Here’s why –> and .

    • Protein Supplements may be contaminated
    Many tests of protein supplements have revealed contaminants such as heavy metals (cadmium, lead, arsenic, mercury), salmonella bacteria, and byproducts of pesticides, fertilizers, etc. In the US, there is no statutory requirement (law) that requires protein supplement makers to test their products. Watch this video from CBS news –> and note that Muscle Milk was one of the products found to be contaminated.

    • The world’s top athletes don’t use protein supplements. Why should you?
    Most Olympians do not use protein supplements and they train much harder than bodybuilders. Train like an Olympian. –> . Eat like an Olympian –> .
