Women are now on the hunt for the best protein powder to suit their lifestyle and fitness goals and the truth is, there really isn't a single type of protein that's best for all women, so we're here to help shorten the list by giving you an inside look on the top three products on the market and how you can get the most benefit from them!
"Suffer the pain of DISCIPLINE or suffer the pain of REGRET"
Determining your goals will make picking the best protein powder for women an easy task! Before you start surfing the web for protein powder and buying into the tub with a great looking, tanned and toned model, ask yourself...Am I looking for a shake to lose fat and add definition? Or do I want to add on mass?
Women’s Protein Shake for Weight Loss and Toning
We all make our New Year's resolutions for weight loss big, impressive and exciting, at first we adhere to them...but we tend to fall off that wagon after that initial stretch in January. In general we tend to get most of our carbs from foods and don't even realise it - for example a large green apple can contain up to 30 grams of carbs and you wouldn't even know it. When picking your protein powder, look for one with low carbohydrates and fats but high in protein per serve - we're going to make that easy for you!

You can buy any protein and consume it daily post workout or as a meal replacement however if you're unfamiliar with how to use it, it's purpose or the macro-nutrients it provides then you're probably just adding more digits to that scale. Protein shakes that are formulated for mass will have a lot more on the nutrition panel such as higher content of protein, carbs, fats and vitamins and minerals.
