Meal replacement Contrary to trending ideas, it‘s not healthy to skip meals. If you do, you won’t have the energy needed to meet the demands of your day. A healthier choice is to replace your usual fatty or carb-laden meals with a protein shake. You’ll get the protein your body needs for lean muscle gain while shedding excess pounds.

Sometimes you just need a refreshing and tasty drink. The problem with those “energy drinks” you see in the store is that many of them are nothing more than sugary drinks fortified with vitamins. You need protein for muscle development and pure energy during a gym session. If you’re serious about giving your body what it needs, you need Chief’s protein drinks! Alternative to other shakes If you’re thinking of just grabbing a milkshake, think again. That milkshake will be higher in protein than a fizzy drink, that’s for sure.

They contain extra concentrated milk protein, yet they have less fat and no added sugars! Why have a generic milkshake when you can nourish your body with a Chiefs protein shake?

A pre-made protein shake will usually be milk-based. This is the most common source of liquid protein that is readily available. Other ingredients may include flavours and sweeteners.

Unless they contain dairy derivatives, soy-based pre-made protein drinks are vegan. However, many protein drinks are dairy milk-based, as milk is an excellent source of protein and more efficient than plant-based protein. What is the difference between pre-made protein drinks and making your own whey protein shake? When you make your protein drink, you have more control over what is going into it. But it takes time that not everyone has. That is why, in addition to our whey protein powders, we offer pre-made, healthy protein drinks, for the ultimate convenience. Most protein powders are also whey-based, but Chiefs uses only the highest quality milk proteins in its ready-to-use protein drinks. How many protein drinks can I drink a day? There is no hard and fast rule about how many protein drinks you can drink in a day. Many people drink two or three a day, as a meal replacement, snack, or for extra nourishment. As part of a healthy, balanced diet, this is perfectly fine. As a rule of thumb, an average adult needs about 0.8-1 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. Depending on the amount of exercise, the protein requirement can be much higher than this recommendation. In a perfect world, we’d all be making nutritious meals and drinks in the kitchen to package and transport to school, work and the gym. But we live in the real world, and sometimes, that’s just not possible. You don’t have to sacrifice your need for nutrition, though. Just get yourself some Chiefs protein shakes today. Your body will thank you!
