Dieting Tips: The benefits of whey protein/Is whey protein good for you?

   So first off, I'm going to go over the benefits/Advantages of whey protein. Based on research I've collected over the internet, as well as from personal experience. Secondly I'll be going over the disadvantages. I'll also be posting some of the articles I found most helpful while doing my research.
   A useful tool that I've found pretty effective is the Macronutrient calculator on as well, this will tell you based on your BMI how much protein, carbohydrates, and fats you need throughout the day. (They can be altered based on what you want to do, whether it be losing fat, gaining muscle, etc.) Information about this can be found on my earlier blog post Dieting Facts and Tips. The macronutrient Calculator can be found by clicking here.

Advantages and benefits of Whey Protein:

-Protein is an essential part to muscle growth and without it, your muscles wouldn't grow. Whey protein has a high amount of protein at a relatively cheap cost, per serving (Per scoop) a protein shake usually costs lower than 1$.

-It's quick and easy: As a college student I don't really have a lot of time to be cooking proper meals all the time, A protein shake can help me get in the proper amount of nutrition I need throughout the day. I can make one anywhere and it still fills me up. (They don't replace carbs or fat)

-It's good for your immune system: It actually promotes your immune system by increasing the amount of antibodies.

-Various help against disease: A few of these I personally didn't know but protein can reduce the risk of cancer (mostly to the liver and pancreas), it helps with the treatment of hepatitis, and helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Personal Experience:
   I'm a pretty big fan of using whey protein myself, and from my experience it does create results.When I first started using it I gained a significant amount weight in a fairly short period of time (about 10lbs in the first month or two) a long with a good workout routine. The good thing about it is the weight stays if you stop taking it. I've recently stopped taking it for a bit and I haven't lost any weight because of it.
   If you do have any questions or concerns feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can, if you have any interest in buying whey protein I'm personally a fan of the Optimum gold standard whey on, if you wanna check it out feel free by Clicking here.

Fitness tip: Setting goals and staying motivated

For those starting out:
   When you first start working out, staying motivated is definitely going to be difficult. At first it's going to seem like you're not making any progress, or its not working, or people are judging you at the gym, or whatever it may be.

   Results take time and hard work, plain and simple. The best way to reach your long term goal though is to set smaller more reachable goals in between. For example, a goal could be something like "I want to be able to bench press 80lb dumbbells". Now starting out that's going to be something that seems impossible to reach, at least for me it was. Start setting smaller goals, for example at this moment you might be able to bench 40lb dumbells for 10 reps. Set a goal saying, by next week I'm going to try 45lb dumb bells for 5 times. Or something similar to that, depending on whatever your goal may be.

   Results take time, but this is something where you get what you put into it. Work hard and you'll get to where you need to go. Don't give up, whatever your end goal may be. It seems hard right now but set small goals and continuously reach them.

   One thing I do when I want to reach a goal, like lifting a higher weight, doing more reps, or whatever it may be is to write down what I did each workout. For example I will write down how many reps I did of each weight I did per workout. Now the next time I do the same workout I compete with myself and try and beat what I did last week. It's like setting a high score on your own personal leader board. This actually works, one of my thoughts is the me of today should be able to kick past me's ass. If I don't think present me can do that, I should definitely be working harder. Plain and simple.

   If you have any questions or need advice, feel free to leave a comment. I will reply, thanks for reading ladies and gentlemen. I hope this helps at least a little. Don't forget to subscribe to the blog!
