Femal Super heroBy Guy Lawrence

Whether you are male or female. The body requires protein on a daily basis, it’s just that the amounts vary accordingly. To add to this, if you are an active female, or wanting to become more active, then you will require more protein than the sedentary.

The difference with protein powders for women is?

Generally the protein amount per serve is less. But if you are looking for a protein supplement, just be careful of the hidden sugars, preservatives, stabilizers, thickeners and artificial flavourings that are in many of them. Many have slick marketing and are questionable if they are helpful towards ones health over time.

The reality is, male and females 99% of the time eat the same foods, it’s just the quantity that varies. The problem lies within the health and fitness industry, where we are constantly bombarded with slick marketing, new fad products and constant buzz words. There is no best protein powder for women.

The trick is to keep it simple. So if your curiosity for a female protein is to help muscle tone and weight loss, read on.

Weight Loss Misconceptions

We don’t like the word weight loss. As there are many things that make up a persons overall weight, not just the body fat. So standing on the scales alone will only tell a small part of the story.

Generally, when people “diet”, they reduce the quantity of the food they eat, and this can have a very negative effect on the body. They may lose some weight, but it is not necessarily body fat they will lose, it is what makes up the rest of the body, which is known as fat free mass. Our muscle tissue, organs, water, blood and bone mass.

So our body gets compromised, and our muscle mass atrophies (breaks down). The end result is less overall weight, but the same amount of body fat and less muscle mass, and a persons health under stress. (Learn more about health weight loss here.)

We like to encourage a healthy life style and fat loss is a result of a healthier you!

The Key to better health

In plain English, eat protein, natural fats and low glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates for each meal. It should be high fibre, organic when possible, all your garden vegetables, especially greens, certain low GI fruits (berries are good), unprocessed meets, nuts, seeds, little starch and NO SUGAR!

Food is perishable, and not made to be processed, it was designed that way. Anything with an extra long shelf life is probably processed, be suspicious. Modern diets are ill suited for our genetic composition. Evolution has not kept pace with the advances in agriculture and food processing resulting in a plague of health problems for modern man.

If you follow these simple rules to food, and combine them with exercise, you’ll be amazed with the results. Your body will be extremely grateful.
