Is consuming whey protein daily harmful for my health? I workout 5 days a week and drink one or two shakes per day

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

I tend to workout about every other day. I get really sore on days that I rest. I take whey protein and do plenty of stretching. I'm hydrated. Thanks?

I tend to workout about every other day. I get really sore on days that I rest. I take whey protein and do plenty of stretching. I'm hydrated. Thanks?

Over training: Muscle soreness tends to be worse 24-48 hours after intense exercise. I recommend not working the same muscle group for 72 hours in order to allow for proper recovery. A good routine is pushes vs pulls. Do push exercises on monday and thurs. Do pull exercises on tues and fri. Rest completely on wed. That should get you on the right track. ...Read more

If I do not have a milk allergy, can I drink whey protein powder shakes?

If I do not have a milk allergy, can I drink whey protein powder shakes?

Yes: 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 there any side effects or bad effect to the body drinking whey protein?

Controversial: There is much debate about whey protein, derived from dairy, regarding its effects on health. I don't believe one should get protein from dairy and prefer non-animal sources like quinoa, nuts and beans. I also like wild salmon for protein and mostly healthy fats.
