Are whey protein isolate powders safe to drink if I drink lots of water with it? 1.4 liters - 2 liters a day of water, 1 protein shake after gym.

Probably.: Protein shakes can be problematic for people with kidney problems or who don't stay well hydrated. So long as your urine is light in color or clear, and you tolerate the drink (no gut symptoms of allergy or intolerance), it's unlikely to harm you. Be careful of calorie content in your shake, though; some are surprisingly high in unnecessary sugars. ...Read more

What will drinking soy protein powder do to a young female? Will it mess up hormones since there's chemicals, or will it give me curves/help gain weight

Soy protein: Despite all the internet claims, is just protein which will be broken down in your GI system and metabolized for calories -- just like anything else you eat or drink. If you eat more calories than you burn off, you will gain weight, but you con't tell your body where to deposit the fat -- so the curves may not end up where you want them to be. ...Read more

Trying to lose weight, drink smoothies twice a day. Should I be using protein powder in both of them? I have more fat then muscle, I am exercising. TY

Using protein powder: Will only add calories. Protein daily requirement is 50gms. You only need to supplement if you are doing heavy workouts. It alone will not cause weight loss. A good balanced diet and an exercise program will give results. You must be aware that if you lose fat & replace it with muscle, you may see no great wt. Loss but you will be more defined & healthy. Be sure calories in are more than cal in, ...Read more

How much protein powder is it safe to drink after a 2 hour workout?

Protein is necessary: You should aim to get about 20 g of protein daily. Realizing that some of that is in your diet, be careful not to "overdue" because the metabolism of nitrogen in protein can burden your kidneys. Protein is fine after exercise, as it keeps your metabolism up and contributes energy that you have burned. A balanced approach (bar with protein, carb, and lipid) might be better, however. ...Read more

Nope: Depending upon goals a balanced diet should suffice in assuring plenty of nutrients regardless of growth stage.

Hydration remains critical, specifically if extra protein is added to diet. ...Read more

I am very depresed, my body is shaking all the time and my legs are numbness. Is it ok to try drinking protein powder to gain the strength??

Depends, tx cause: First! Protein shakes are fine occasionally but shouldn't be used as a meal substitute when proper nutrition is needed to build proper neurotransmitters to help increase energy level & serotonin (to prevent against depression). So speak to your doctor and get some great advise & nutritional consultation on rebuilding your body. Hydrate weil too, or the shake can get you constipated. Work together! ...Read more
