As some of you know, I have only just started to work out at the gym (and, no, I will not be moving to one of the bodybuilders sites).
I am sore.
My best friend, who also goes to the gym but in another country, suggests that if I keep feeling sore a few weeks in then a protein shake or powder might help my muscles to recover.
For those of you that do work out, do they help? I would be looking for a low calorie one since my main aim is to continue losing weight but to try to tone up a little.
My diet is also a bit sensitive on the protein side since I mostly eat salads. I try my best to get protein (e.g. eggs, tuna, cockles, beans) in there but I must be close to the minimum recommended daily amount for a man.
I'm worried the gym might tip me into the red without a little extra boost.
It's a shame beer does not have much protein in it. Else I'd be sorted.
I would also like to add that if you had asked me three months ago whether I would ever be asking about a protein shake/powder then I would have lmfao.
