Hey Guys, Thomas here today with Six Pack Shortcuts. Today I’m here to go through one of the most highly-discussed topics in fitness: protein powder.

News flash guy…protein powders are NOT important just because of their protein content. Anytime we consume protein, it causes a spike our insulin levels – this is called being insulinogenic. This reaction opens up our cells to be more receptive to the nutrients from the protein you are taking in…Let’s breakdown the best forms of protein powder to continue building lean muscle and getting you closer to your six pack abs.

My most favorite type of protein powder hands-down is grass-fed whey protein isolate. When you notice the words “protein isolate” on the label, that means the protein has been separated from all the unnecessary junk in the whey so the protein that is being absorbed is much more pure. Any “grass-fed” protein means the whey is being derived from naturally-sourced, non-grain fed cattle that will pass down the good nutrients from their diet into the protein you will be taking in.

Second to grass-fed whey protein isolate is pea protein. Pea protein is good for your digestive system and is something a bit different so that you can change up your protein intake so your body doesn’t get too accustomed to the same sources of nutrients.

The third best form of protein powder isn’t even powder…It’s meat. You can’t out-supplement protein from whole foods in your diet. I recommend options like organic chicken breast or sustainably-caught fish like cod.

A word of caution everyone…Stay away from casein protein. Casein digests slowly over night and because it causes excess mucus production in your intestines, also causes the uptake of other good nutrients to slow as well. Smaller quantities of casein will be absorbed into the body through eating the right whole foods.

Beef protein protein powder is another form I would suggest you to stay away from. The quality of beef protein powder cut with outside amino acids is not nearly as beneficial as eating an actual nice cut of beef or sticking to grass-fed whey protein isolate for cleaner and healthier results.

What I want you guys to take away from this video today is the importance of what you choose to put into your body – if you eat clean and source your nutrients the healthy way, you are more likely to get better, cleaner results. Make sure to also change up what you’re eating to avoid triggering unwanted antibody responses in the body that can result in a nutrition plateau.

I always want to hear what else you guys are wondering about or confused on with fitness and nutrition, so in the comments below let me know what topic we should shed some light on next.
