Health food: Whey Protein

I have a bestie, or rather, a partner in crime who is now working as a personal trainer in a local gym. We grew up together but we’re like heaven and Earth. We’re totally different beings, but I think we complement and get along with each other just fine. After all we have been friends since we were 11 years old.

My bestie, she’s a very health conscious person. Which means, she goes to gym to work out even before she started to venture into the fitness and body building industry. While me, on the other hand, is somewhat nonchalant when it comes to health and fitness. She’s the kind who would count her calorie intakes as she eat while I don’t really care about calories. As long as the food taste good, anything goes, even if it’s unhealthy.

She could go on and on and on, talking about health supplements and why whey protein is essential in body building and fitness industry. Truthfully, I am not a bit familiar about health supplements as well as whey proteins and whatnot. I am practically illiterate when it comes to these sort of things.

And so, I looked up supplements UK where there are loads of infos on health food supplements provided.

According to supplements UK, whey protein is is a high quality protein powder made from cow’s milk. Milk has two proteins: Casein (approximately 80%) and Whey Protein (approximately 20%).

Whey protein is more soluble than casein and also has a higher quality rating. It is often referred to as the gold standard of protein as it is the most nutritious protein available.

Whey protein is a high quality, complete protein, with all the essential amino acids and is also the richest known source of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine). And so, whey protein are important for active individuals, individuals who exercise a lot, bodybuilders and professional athletes.

So is whey protein for me? No. Not quite. It’s not quite for me, cuz I I don’t exercise much. I only swim a few times a month, and that’s merely for relaxing, not exercising. But whey proteins is certainly for sizzling hot and virile men like this. πŸ˜€

And this…

And definitely this…

Good grief, working out and taking whey protein does that to one’s body? Hmmm… I better stop and run to the nearest gym for some eye candies instead before my imaginations runs wilder. πŸ˜€ Anyone with me?

Cleffairy:  I kinda know why my bestie got so hooked in the gym. Tsk tsk tsk! Shame on you, Pau! πŸ˜›
