3 Health Benefits to Using Protein Powder

Have you ever had an experience where you ate something only to fill your stomach and get you through the day without thinking about getting proper nutrients to your body? Have you been to so many work celebrations, coffee meetings and late-night drinking socials that you ate so much food and still felt hungry after? In today’s fast-paced world where quick and easy meals, mobile food and convenient snacks are all the rage, it is easy to overlook the importance of eating the right food at the right the time. Over time, you start to develop an unhealthy relationship with food that you no longer recognize what it is to be healthy.

Luckily for us, there are food alternatives available that can help us transition and improve our health and well-being. Protein powders have a huge impact to our health and lifestyle. If you are looking for a protein powder that will fit your needs and you want to learn more about their ingredients, be sure to check out Protein Powder Xperts Review for a ton of credible and proven options. There is no better time than now to start taking care of your health. Here are three out of the many health benefits to using protein powder.

  1.   Helps Build Muscles and Improve Metabolism

If you work out constantly and you are a very active person, it is highly recommended that you take protein-enriched foods before and after a workout. A fast and easy way to do this is by drinking protein shakes. Taking protein shakes at least 30 minutes before your workout helps prepare your muscle and improve your strength which also lowers the damage to your muscles during training. On the other hand, drinking protein shakes right after a workout helps your muscle regain all the nutrients for recovery and growth. As your muscles grow, your metabolism increases which help with digestion and burning of fat.

  1.   Fills Your Body with Essential Nutrients Without the Urge to Binge

You do not need to consume lots of junk foods and even convenient foods that will not provide you with essential nutrients to keep your energy levels up. Protein powders are packed with nutrients that you can consume any time of the day. You can make them into protein shakes or even add the powder to your favorite salad. They are easy to prepare and you can bring them wherever you go. It will keep you full and satisfied and you will not feel the urge to pick up a junk food just to fill your stomach.

  1.   Helps You Lose Weight Naturally and Permanently

Losing weight is hard and takes time. If it is easy, everyone will be at their optimum weight and right vitality in one instance. There are a lot of ways to lose weight but not all of them are effective in terms of maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle. The best thing about consuming protein powder is that you know that it’s not the be-all and end-all. Adding protein powder to your healthy routine which includes exercise, proper sleep, mindfulness and eating nutritious food is the best way to maximize its benefits and keep those extra weights off.

It could get swollen and painful and sometimes, may emit pus. It is highly advised that you seek treatment as soon as possible when this happens.

The Easiest Shave…Anywhere

As Hungry and Fit, we are always on the go (yes I include Hungry in this because he actually uses this razor as a 6 foot 210 pound man). Whether it’s to the gym, to one of our favorite dining spots, to a local trail, or to another country! We are on the move. With that movin’ and groovin’, we certainly need products that can keep up with us. Enter Venus Snap mini razor.

The pictures can’t quite describe how mini  it is. I was shocked. It is the smallest razor I’ve ever had. And that is a good thing. It comes in this neat little container, similar to the size of a pill case. I love it because it’s so easy to transport and bring anywhere I need. I’ve been keeping it in my bag (which comes with me everywhere) because you never know when you might need it. We all know those moments when you’re the one with the prickly legs. Awkward. So without me even realizing it, it’s become my perfect handy accessory I can sneak anywhere. The other night at the gym after a good back workout, I decided to loosen up and let my mind clear with a good swim. Good thing I had put my Venus Snap in my bag! I easily took care of the problem before I jumped in the pool. So handy. I love things that are actually useful.

So now you know how useful it is, let’s learn more about the actual product. It is the Venus Embrace razor, first and foremost. You may be wary about how small it is, but the grip is easy to handle. It comes with that pivoting head that Venus makes which makes it actually hard to cut yourself.  And I know I already mentioned how awesome the cute compact carrying case is, but seriously, you can take it with you anywhere! I wish I had this on our New Zealand trip because from almost sleeping in our car to finding rooms in hostels, this is something you want small and compact.

See how little!

See how little!

And voila

And voila

So next time you’re at Target, pick up one of these bad boys. I promise it’s the perfect must-have accessory to your everyday life. Gym? Yes. Beach? Duh. Hiking? Easy and done. List can go on and on. That’s why the Venus Snap is perfect for us because you know we are always active and on the go. So just do yourself a favor and join the awesome club so you’re not the porcupine of the group. Use the Venus Snap to stay hungry and fit!

THANK YOU, EVERYONE!

Today’s post is going to be short! It’s not because we are feeling tremendously lazy due to the heat and long work days. It’s not because we’ve run out of ideas… we have pages full of ideas that will last us until 2014. It’s simply because we’ve been very much into what we have been doing on our blog at www.hungryandfit.com (this site!) ever since we started last year. In fact, we are becoming continually more enthusiastic about it, as you can tell by the additions and innovations to the website.

For months, we have been tracking our progress and setting some unofficial goals. Obviously, we don’t make much money off of the blog… we simply love to offer some advice and tell fun stories to people who are interested. While we continue planning to expand upon our free and paid-for services, such as online comprehensive training and free YouTube videos (and MORE), we will keep the blog alive. So let’s get to the main point because I’m speaking without thinking about structure since I’m so happy. Just today, we passed the 1,000 follower mark, whatever that means. We’ve been aiming for it for quite some time and we hope you continue to refer us so that number can grow and the number of people we entertain and educate can expand.
