Many people have come to me to ask what's the best type of protein supplement, meals and workouts they need in order to build muscle. I replied to all 16 similar emails and asked for them to do 1 thing.
I would help them if they write down what type of protein powder they take, all the ingredients listed on the container, look up all the ingredients and send it back to me. 1 out of 16 people actually returned with the proper information and I kept my word and told them the proper steps to lose weight and build muscle.
I'm telling you this story because people expect to get free information and not work for it. Just like working out! They want to see results and they want to see it now!
Now to get to my point about writing down the ingredients of your protein supplements. Check this out:
So do you see the ingredients? Maltodextrin is known for people to develop food allergies, bloating, skin rashes and break outs, insulin spikes, constipation or diarrhea, unhealthy weight gain (I'm not talking muscles), tooth decay, headaches, dizziness and body aches.

Lets check out the other two:
You have got to be joking!!! For someone who goes to the gym and wants a healthy beautiful body, you seriously want to put in high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, potassium chloride... wait right there.... Potassium chloride is used in LETHAL COCKTAIL INJECTIONS PEOPLE! It causes the heart to stop in large doses. I don't know about you but I will never put something in my body that I can die from in high doses.
Can you over dose from eating too much chicken or oranges? I can tell you that you'll be incredibly full but you won't die from it!
So when you are shopping for your protein powder, please only buy pure organic whey protein with no artificial sweeteners or flavors. The only ingredient on the container should say "Pure whey protein".
How simple is that? One ingredient in the whole container. Now do you know what's in your protein? For everyone who didn't do the homework, now you know. Whey protein is the answer. xxx <3 A&L
