Weight Loss & Muscle Building Blog By Francesco Castano
Many who spend hours scanning the Internet in search of the best protein powder supplement will encounter seemingly limitless marketing hype suggesting that the latest expensive incarnation of whey protein is going to improve muscle building or fat loss results beyond what other food sources provide. But, in reality, throughout the many years that supplement companies have been advertising various new, "improved potency" whey protein powder supplements, the best protein powder source for muscle building or fat loss has not changed, and is the type I have been recommending for years to all of my Fat Vanish and MuscleNOW clients.
Egg white protein powder has for years been the healthiest, purest and most effective protein source to use when portability and convenience is necessary, which is information supplement providers do not want you to understand or accept. They instead thrive off of convincing you that spending more on their gimmicked whey protein powder alternatives will enhance results, when in fact this couldn't be further from the truth.
Unlike egg white protein powder, which is 100% pure dried egg whites, with no additives or preservatives whatsoever, most types of whey protein powder contain various controversial ingredients, including artificial sweeteners (sucralose, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, etc), and MSG, an amino acid which constitutes a significant portion of the whey protein powder amino acid profile and has been linked with various health issues. High levels of MSG have been shown in animal studies to damage certain areas of the brain, which can then produce a range of serious side effects. Therefore, it's prudent not only to avoid MSG added to food, but because a significant portion of whey is comprised of MSG, you should also opt to avoid consuming whey protein powder in order to preserve long term health.
Additionally, what's frightening about whey protein powder is that certain brands contain fillers, lessening the effective protein potency of the powder. This has you paying for a protein powder that is comprised of, for lack of a more eloquent term, junk, and placing this into your body; just remember, "you are what you eat," and consuming fillers is not consistent with a clean, healthy, potent weight loss or muscle building diet plan.
When you combine the artificial sweeteners and additives comprising most whey protein powder products, along with the fact that MSG is the most abundant amino acid in whey protein powder (which can lead to health issues), and the presence of fillers in numerous whey protein powders to boost the associated supplement company's profit margin, and you are left with a very popular source of protein that is actually one of the very worst!
The only type of protein powder I personally use, and have for years, is sold in the IncrediBody fitness store, comprised of 100% dried egg whites, with no additives or preservatives whatsoever. Eggs are one of the most potent muscle building sources, with a very high bioavailability (translating into more muscle building potential per gram than alternatives), and egg white protein also works very well in supporting fat loss, therefore makes for the ideal protein powder when seeking portability and convenience. The egg white protein powder I offer here at IncrediBody.com is 100% pure dried egg whites, with no fillers or additives whatsoever, so you're receiving a pure and healthy protein source.
I offer two brands of egg white protein powder, both shipped fresh directly from the USDA inspected farm, comprised of nothing but dried egg whites.
The first requires a high speed blender for mixing, and is available at the following link:
The other brand I offer is also shipped directly from the same USDA inspected farm, but has been instantized to easily mix without a blender. This particular egg white protein powder is available at the following location:
The above instantized egg white protein powder can be quickly mixed with a spoon, or with a convenient and portable shaker bottle, which is available at the following link:
I opened my IncrediBody fitness store in 1997 to provide healthy, effective fitness products that support natural weight loss or muscle building, and I do not offer any supplements that pose a health risk, or which make outlandish claims in regards to potency. With the egg white protein powder available here at IncrediBody.com, you are sure to receive a high quality, fresh, healthy, effective, portable protein source at a reasonable price.
In my IncrediBody Transformation Program (Fat Vanish and MuscleNOW), I provide a special egg white protein powder shake recipe that I created for my Fat Vanish and MuscleNOW clients. This unique protein shake is tasty, and very effective at either weight loss or muscle building. Here are several comments from IncrediBody Transformation Program clients regarding this particular egg white protein powder recipe:
"Love the shake - could drink it all day."
"thank you for the protein shake recipe, you are right it is tasty!"
"I made one of these shakes this morning. It was awesome! Thanks again; it was much better than the shakes that I was making before."
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have regarding the two egg white protein powders that I offer here at IncrediBody. By using either product, I am confident that all of your protein portability needs will be addressed in a healthy, cost effective way, supporting your fat loss or muscle building goals, and please make sure to ignore the whey protein powder advertising campaigns that have led many astray.
