Protein shakes?
4

Amy214 · 12/06/2016 17:33

I have been looking at drinking protein shakes. I work out 3x a week. My workout regime mainly consists of cardio tabata, strength (upper arms, shoulders and triceps) - this has worked because i feel more comfortable with showing arms. I also do abs but that depends on how tired i am after cardio. I don't work out whilst on my period as for some reason it hurts my pelvis too much (gentle walk instead)
I eat between 1200-1500 calories a day.
Since january i have lost 2stone (another stone to go until i have reached my goal!)
I dont want to lose the rest too fast but now i want to start toning up so i have been reading into protein shakes but i am unsure if they actually work or if i can have them whilst on the contraceptive pill.

They don't affect contraception at all. I used them after bariatric surgery and am using them one meal a day to get back on track. I use usn or maxi lean ones as they have no added fat or sugar.

Thats good to know, i get paranoid about things affecting my contraception as i dont want anymore children. And i don't want to use them if they do more harm than good. Could i add fruit to them?

They taste better when you do! I always have chocolate and add frozen berries and blitz them.
