This very question regarding whey protein supplements, and protein supplements in general, not specifically whey, is debated quite a lot over the years. I’ve actually seen it come up time and time again in bodybuilding, gym, health forums, in gyms and so on. With their being differing opinions on it I will give you my take which I think anyone reading this will definitely seem sense in what is written here. With that being said, looking at ones diet who goes to the gym regularly and wants to build muscle, a protein supplement can certainly have its place in this diet. However, I will state now, that it is more than possible to get sufficient protein from ‘real’ food or everyday foods, without having to rely on a powdered supplement. Protein supplements have their place, lets say that your protein requirements are high depending if you are training that day or is a recovery day. Ideally you will want high protein and high fats, but lower carbohydrates. In this case, it can be more difficult to obtain the protein from just normal meals, and this is where the protein supplement, like phd pharma whey, can come in really handy.

If you have been training for a while now without tracking your macros then you are missing out. By tracking your macro nutrients you will be able to make progress quicker! What you need to look at is calories, carbohydrates, proteins, fats and secondary to that fibre and sugar. If you track each then you will know how your body reacts to more or less carbohydrates, proteins and fats. For the secondary macros I only aim for around 20g of fibre a day and to keep the sugars under a quarter of the total carbohydrates. Depending on calorie intake, the range of fats will be between 45 and 75 grams. With my diet I am aiming to become leaner and maintain then build muscle.

Why Protein Bars are an Ideal Addition

Protein bars like cheap Quest bars are an ideal addition to your diet because the macro profile is very good. With 20g of protein per bar and only 7g of carbs, eating these alongside a cup of tea allows you to enjoy eating and also contributing beneficially to your macro targets for each day.
