Hmmmm . . . : Not unless you have really heavy cans of whey protein and lift them a lot. :-) i agree with dr. Henning that whey and other proteins can support your muscle growth while you're also doing a weight resistance program. But why does not have the same functions as weights. Lifting weights train your muscles; drinking whey supports their growth. Other forms of protein include pea and soy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?
Protein and sugar: After a hard work out your body needs protein and some sugar (glucose). You should try not to eat fat and /or a huge amount of sugar. Try to find a protein shake that provides this balance. Non fat milk and a banana both provide some glucose without the fat content. I worry that your frozen shake has too much sugar and fat, which would would counter the affect of your workout. ...Read more

Maybe: There is no foolproof way to increase weight loss - it is just plain hard work.

Healthy diet: You are right, protein at breakfast can help with feeling full. I would suggest an egg, or peanut butter, or yogurt for their added nutrients.

Consider meeting with a nutritionist, eliminating sweetened drinks and fruit juices, and adding raw vegetables and fruit as snacks. ...Read more
