We have not one, not even two, but THREE cheap protein powder deals for you today. And not just individual items, no, we are giving you access to many, many different product deals, like cheap whey protein powders, even cheaper vegan protein powders, protein bar deals and all the supplements you can ever think of.
Protein powders and protein supplements are essential for muscle building and regeneration (so anyone doing weight training). Apart from being the go-to supplement for anyone frequenting a gym, this essential macronutrient can help recovery after running or triathlon races too.
Not to mention that protein is great for weight loss as well. Since it takes longer for our bodies to break down protein, upping your protein intake can make you feel fuller for longer. This doesn’t mean you should cover your daily calorie intake with protein, but even if you swap a bagel for a protein bar in the afternoon, you are effectively making a step towards a healthier lifestyle.

Why should you buy protein supplements
Protein is one of the three essential macronutrients your body needs to function properly. Unlike the other two (carbs and fats), your body can’t store protein and and especially if you are exercising more vigorously, you need to replenish your protein levels as you go along.
Your diet probably covers some of your protein needs but if you would like to build lean muscle mass, it is recommended to take in 1.6-2 grams of protein per body kilogram per day. For a 70 kilo person, that’s around 112-140 grams of protein per day.
You should cover your protein needs from a variety of sources. Good protein sources are lean meat, soy, nuts, eggs, oats, fish and so on. If you cover your protein intake from a variety of sources, your body will also replenish other micro and macro nutrients as well, essential for your wellbeing and health.
To top this up and mainly because it is super convenient, having a protein shake or two a day can fill the gaps in your diet and also help you combat cravings throughout the day. Most dieters lose the battle against cravings by not planning snacks for the day and then resort to have something seriously unhealthy.
By having a shake or a protein bar in the afternoon, you can effectively reduce your calorie consumption and up your protein intake in the same time. That’s a double win right there.
