What Are the Benefits of Drinking Protein Shakes?
The main reason people tend to drink protein shakes is for muscle gain. There are actually a ton of health benefits when integrating a protein-rich diet into your routine. High protein diets lead to more calories burned at rest, aiding in maintaining a healthy weight. Eating lots of protein also helps you feel full after eating less food, leading to a lower calorie intake. Those who eat lots of protein also tend to heal quicker from pulled muscles or injury.
