Protein should be a priority for anyone hoping to hold onto muscle while dieting or any athlete trying to add muscle. Muscles need a constant stream of amino acids from protein for maintenance. If you don’t — or can’t — take in enough protein, your body will steal aminos from the protein stored in your muscles. Protein powders make it easier to add protein to your daily intake.
There are plenty of choices available to help you achieve your goal, whether that is gaining weight, replacing meals, adding muscle or holding on to hard- earned muscle while you are trying to lose body fat. This chapter will have the right protein source or sources to meet your needs.
