Is it ok for my 14-yr-old son to drink whey protein shakes in addition to healthy diet to help build muscle. He does mostly body weight workouts?
Begining to run and do weights. What is best to eat/drink after a workout? Trying to lose some belly fat & gain muscle. Whey protein shakes work?
Whey is a dairy component so you shouldn't have a problem. Be sure to carefully consider what your goals are for the supplement. Some are high in carbs - others more protein. Always drink LOTS of water to keep up good urine flow to avoid kidney irritation if too much protein in your diet.

Is consuming whey protein daily harmful for my health? I workout 5 days a week and drink one or two shakes per day
There is a debate: There are two camps when it comes to whey protein derived from cheese. The vegan camp believes a link exists between dairy and cancer and autoimmune diseases. The other camp believes it helpful against inflammation and helps build muscle. My take is that the science is inconclusive either way, no one needs too much protein, and that nuts and grains like quinoa are a better source of protein. ...Read more

Suggest larger/wider focus: as creatures adapted to eat real food from nature (digestion, selective absorption & complex internal molecular rebuilding under sophisticated internal controls), why would eating crudely processed material you can't see, saved as powder, by people wanting to make a buck, be superior?

Does drinking a whey protein shake and taking a b-12 vitamin help promote better matabolism for weight loss?
NO: Both are a waste of time and money. Why would taking in extra calories with a shake help you lose weight, which is dependent upon burning off calories you don't take in? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. B-12 only helps if you're low, and is by injection. ...Read more

Be careful of calorie content in your shake, though; some are surprisingly high in unnecessary sugars. ...Read more

Is too much protein bad for your health? I drink protein shakes and I don't know whether too much is bad for my health.
Debatable: Too much protein can have adverse effects but it varies per person. There is controversy whether kidney damage may occur with excessive protein. One question to ask is whether large amounts of protein are necessary- the answer is typically "no." most active athletes need in the range of 0.6-1 gram/pound. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, then 120-200 grams is plenty. More than that serves no purpose. ...Read more
Not all of them!: That is a vast generalization. Certainly some vegans drink protein shakes but many don't. There are plentiful sources of protein in a vegan diet- nuts, seeds & beans are the best sources, but even foods like kale, broccoli, avocados, potatoes & quinoa contain surprising amounts of protein, it's really not that difficult to get plenty of protein on a vegan diet! ...Read more
