Whey Protein for the Shakes

by Alex
(Vancouver, Canada)

Visitor Question:

The recipes I read for smoothies here on your website call for 2 scoops of whey protein powder. However...I'm confused as I use a natural stevia based iso whey right now. I'm not exercising properly...just trying to get the eating right first...but wouldn't the amount of whey powder you have in the recipe be too much protein and possibly too much of the other ingredients? I don't know much about all that but with some people I know that do exercise, they always suggest half to full scoop.

I appreciate any help I can get and for your time!

Thank you so much!


Lifetime Fat Loss Answers:

Hey Alex, thank you so much for your question! Oops...I bet I have confused a lot of people. I am so glad you pointed this out to me. I believe you are referring to my smoothie recipes.

And yes I do call for two scoops of whey powder in each smoothie and yes with most whey powder products this IS excessive! That's because as you point out most whey protein powders have lots of fillers in them and many times they are carbs of one sort or another.

I should have made clear in the recipe that 2 scoops is only for the specific brand that I recommend. This is because it is pure whey protein with absolutely no fillers. It utilizes a proprietary peptide technology using enzymes to target the fat and allow your body to release it.

It has no carbs or preservatives and one serving gives you 20% of your daily requirement of protein and 22% of your daily requirement of calcium. It is low in calories - you'll add the calories with the fresh fruit and almond or soy milk. You can order by calling me toll free at 855-485-5373 PST.

I will clarify this in the recipes. If you are using another whey product just use the amount that is recommended on the container which is probably one scoop!

Thanks for bringing this confusion to my attention!
