#2 – Protein Shakes Don’t Add to Your Waistline
When combined with rigorous exercise, protein allows many people to gain muscle weight. This type of weight gain often leads people to wrongly perceive protein as the cause behind the weight gain. Additionally, some protein shakes contain sugar and other flavourings to make them taste better. Some of these can be the equivalent of eating a chocolate bar for lunch. It’s these additives that lead to weight gain. But if you’re taking protein from a source which doesn’t contain these sugars or draws the flavor from natural sources, then the protein shake won’t add an inch to your waistline.
