I chose protein products as a category because of my history with sports, gym training, sales career and the fact I have had to learn about protein and its many different forms through these pursuits since my first bodybuilding competition when I was 18 years old.
Protein is available for your body these days in so many ways, not just in the food you eat.
The benefits of having protein in your diet as part of a balanced diet is great and you should be aware or make yourself aware of these benefits and also the benefits of protein supplements if you are training at the gym, for sports, dieting to lose weight or changing your eating habits to more healthy choices.
So here I will predominantly be covering supplements, namely protein powders and a few other types of protein products too.
Now you may think that protein supplements would be just a couple of powders and that would be it, but there are so many different brands with many, many different types of powders for different goals and outcomes.
There is milk based protein powders and also many different varieties of vegetarian protein powders available too.
These can be mixed with a variety of different extra ingredients, these extras can help you lose weight, gain weight, help with your recovery after training or help with building lean muscle.
Generally there is a protein base in most protein powder supplements and then the extra ingredients are added into them after it.
Also there is protein only supplements and powder which have a high protein level and minimal amount of carbohydrates or even zero carbohydrates in some instances.
There are Australian made and owned protein products and also in the market at the moment we have a lot from the USA also as well as others coming into the country from all over the world.
Also Protein products and supplements can cover the BCAA and amino acid varieties that are in the market too, there are plenty of these type supplements in the intra workout area and also in the pre workout powders too.
So stick with me, I’m sure my writing about protein supplements and products will evolve over time as Protein Guy grows and adapts.
I hope you will enjoy reading about protein products and supplements as much as I will learning and writing about them.
