For anyone new to bodybuilding, there are a few common mistakes we think you should know about. Firstly, don’t make the mistake of eating too much. Bodybuilders need to increase muscle, not fat, and eating too much of the wrong thing creates body fat. In order to build muscle while losing fat at the same time, you need to have a nutrient based diet, eating specific amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fat. Of these, protein is the most important for building muscle. Although protein exists in many different foods, these also often contain a lot of fat and can lead to high cholesterol and clogged arteries too. Therefore, the best solution is to use protein-heavy muscle supplements instead.
Protein supplements come in many different forms such as protein bars, powders, shakes and drinks. Of the range of different protein available, it is generally considered that whey protein supplements are the most effective. We have whey protein products available as powder and isolate, the latter being the purest form and the best for anyone who is lactose intolerant. If you don’t fancy making up your own drinks using whey protein powder, then why not try some of our delicious ready-made drinks and shakes, which are available in a range of flavours. These are great to use as replacement meal products, saving you time and money on preparing a protein-loaded meal. Our bars are great for when you’re out and about, such as when you’re down the gym or on your break at work.
