To lose body fat/weight we need to be at a calorie deficit which sometimes means reducing your food intake slightly so it’s important to keep yourself feeling satisfied and full when you consume calories.
🐥Here we have 110g chicken breast which is around 115 calories and 24g protein.
💪🏻 We also have a 30g scoop of whey protein which is around 115 calories and 25g of protein.
✅For me I’d rather eat a chicken breast for the exact same calories as I know it’s going to satisfy me more than just a shake and is more likely going to keep me fuller for longer.
✅Protein shakes should be used to supplement your diet and shouldn’t replace real food.
✅A good time to use a shake would be post workout as it’s easily absorbed into the body as it’s already broken down.
