An Easier Way to Get Your Protein Intake

In order for your body to properly function, it requires 6 essential nutrients – fat, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water. Being an essential nutrient means that your body can’t produce sufficient amounts of these nutrients on its own, therefore they’re required to be taken in by your diet. Like many things, there’s a right and wrong way to do something.
This concept, of course, also applies to diet. Getting your fat in the form of saturated fat or trans-fat can lead to health issues down the road. Getting your carbs from sugary foods or baked goods made from white flour can also lead to health issues.
Let’s take protein for example. Whether your goal is to build muscle or maintain it, protein is an essential nutrient for your diet. Even if you don’t have any health or fitness goals – your body still requires protein to function. Like fat and carbohydrates, your daily consumption of protein should be through healthy foods and supplements.
One of my favorite things about protein is its ease of consumption and overall availability. Just walk into any market or general retail store, and your likely to find protein for sale in some way shape or form. If your in a rush, like most of us are these days, it’s so convenient and easy to grab a protein bar or drink.
My favorite new protein drink is made by Premier Protein. Premier Protein is a leading maker of high quality protein products that skip the added calories and fat – providing clean healthy energy for people of active lifestyles.
Skip the thick protein shake…
Have you ever tried drinking a protein shake while working out or after a meal? A shake can be a little too much on my stomach during those times. The new Premier Protein Clear protein drink has a refreshing water-like quality to it, so it’s perfect during a workout or with a meal. You can purchase it at Sam’s Club stores nation wide!
One 16.9 oz bottle contains only 90 calories and zero fat, plus it’s naturally flavored. It contains 20 grams of protein, which is really impressive for a clear drink that’s only 16.9 oz!
Tropical fruit flavor is pictured, and it tastes great. I’m not repelled by the natural flavor of most protein supplements, but I see it as a bonus when you can’t tell your drinking it. Premier Protein Clear Protein Drink is refreshing, tasty, clean, and packs a significant boost of protein.
The general consensus in the fitness world is – If your active and are looking to build muscle, you should be consuming at least 1 gram of healthy protein per pound of body weight. The Clear Protein drink by Premier Protein not only helps attain this goal, it does it in a convenient and easy way.
