I am going on 3 weeks working out at home and just eating right. I have cut back on a lot of burgers, sodas and just bad food. My start off weight was 210, as of today I am now 202 and it feels good to see the number drop

Now my question is should I buy some of those shakes like Isopure? What are the advantages if I do? Or should I just continue what I have been doing?


Also I do not want to bulk up ether, just get lean and lose the fat.

Isopure would be good anyway you look at it because I doubt you are getting enough protien by just cutting out junk food. Gotta get enough protien no matter how you work out or what you wanna look like.

You need to intake 1g of protein for 1lb lean body mass. Protein helps sustain and grow your muscles (doesn't mean bulking up) so your muscles will burn more fat and you lose more weight. Protein is a lot harder to burn for your body so it uses more calories in the process and also protein will make you more full for a longer period of time.

It doesn't matter how you get your protein intake it is just usually easier/cheaper through a shake. Just make sure you mix it with water and not milk.

why not milk?

+1 to this question. i asked my friend the other day and he said because when you mix it with milk it's chunkier when trying to drink but most of all that gets into your body slower? also, that milk has extra fat calories you could be avoiding. overall though he said it wouldnt hurt me any. milk is important.. has calcium and i dont think it's something that should be avoided.

and OP CONGRATS on your weight loss. must be a great feeling!

From the way I see it, if you drink a shake twice a day with milk you are taking in a lot of extra calories and fat. I currently drink my protein with milk because I am trying to bulk up. If you are trying to lose weight why not minimize that calories and just drink it with water. If you still want the calcium I would suggest getting it from elsewhere.

i drink with water post workout at least. You should be taking in some protein though.
