Is your protein making you…sick?

protein brands and your health
Probably, yes.

Fat loss is intimately tied to what you put in your body.  As we say here at Body Do Over: “You get strong in the gym and lean in the kitchen”.

By now, most people have a good idea of what is or isn’t healthy when it comes to fueling their bodies. Simply avoid the fried, processed foods and get more of the all-natural, organic whole foods like meats, fish, fruits and veggies.

A big factor within the idea of getting clean, whole foods is ensuring the body gets enough protein in order to build lean muscle tissue, promote an elevated metabolic rate and burn bad fat.

The solution seems so simple.

In recent years, the supplement industry has exploded with a large variety of protein powder options in an effort to fill in the gaps and ensure people get enough of the muscle building macronutrient.

Unfortunately, the protein powder industry is largely unregulated and, in an effort to continually increase profit margins, the big protein companies sneak unnecessary and harmful ingredients into their powders.

These Supplement Companies Have a Secret – Hiding in Plain Sight

The majority of protein drinks and powders you see in the big box retailers, gas stations and gyms contain ingredients that simply shouldn’t be put into your body. These ingredients are doing more harm to your body than good and will lead to health issues if you don’t do something about it.

Read the Ingredients

The ingredient panel on the back of any protein drink is very revealing. Right there, hidden in plain sight, is a shocking secret these supplement companies don’t want you to know about.

See, most people are busy, and just skim over the ingredient labels. They assume “If a product is sold by a Health Supplement Company, it must be healthy, right?”.

Labels are overcomplicated and tough to read but you really only need to look at a few key points – ingredients, protein, carbohydrate (sugars) and fats. For the purpose of this article, we’ll focus solely on the ingredient list.

When it comes to reading through the ingredient list, just ask yourself the question, “Do I recognize these ingredients?”

The unfortunate answer on most products out there will be, “No, I certainly do not.”

If you can’t understand (or pronounce) the ingredient list, neither can your body. Harmful, foreign, chemically altered ingredients will harm your body over time and have no place in your nutritional regimen.

Remember that your health journey should be about the internal health markers as much as the external transformation.

Ingredients to avoid that will literally poison your body over time:

1. Invisible GMOs – The US’s anti-GMO labeling policies make it easy to forget many of these ingredients don’t belong in your protein. Here are a few:

a. Sodium Ascorbate
b. Citric Acid
c. Ethanol
d. Artificial Flavorings
e. Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
f. Sucrose
g. Monosodium Glutamate
h. Unfortunately, the list goes on and on

2. Hydrogenated Oils – This is another commonly used filler ingredient. The ingredient is made by reacting vegetable oil with hydrogen, which produces trans fats.

Trans fats are directly linked to cardiovascular health issues, nervous system problems and diabetes.

3. Artificial Colors – Artificial colors are added to products just to make us “feel” like we’re eating something healthy and attractive. These additives have been linked to cancer, ADHD and Autism.

4. Sodium Benzoate and BHT – Q: What do you call a preservative that can damage human DNA and cause bladder and gastric cancer as well as create liver issues?

A: You guessed it, sodium benzoate and BHT.

This toxic junk is added into proteins to increase shelf life of the product. These unscrupulous companies care more about their product’s shelf life than about your physical wellbeing.

5. Added Soy to Boost Protein Counts – There are many reasons you should be avoiding soy, far too many to list here. In fact, we dedicated an entire show to the topic on our Body Do Over podcast on iTunes if you’d like to get the full story.

Soy is higher in phytoestrogens than just about any other food source. These phytoestrogens mimic the effects of estrogen in the human body.

Extra estrogen has been directly linked to low libido, breast cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis and infertility. NO GOOD!

That was the bad news. Now here’s the good news!

Knowledge is power. Empower yourself by doing a quick Google search on the top ingredients in your protein powders and drinks. You’ll think twice about putting those toxic cocktails in your body again.

Now, where does that leave you? How do you ensure you’re getting enough protein to keep your body strong and healthy?

The solution is here.

Since you know what NOT to look for, you also know what you should look for. I’ve used all natural, grass-fed options protein powders for years and I regularly recommend them to my clients.

But unfortunately, they all tasted like chalk.

To solve this problem, my team and I created an all natural, grass-fed Body Do Over whey protein to provide healthy, whole ingredients to give your body a healthy source of protein – that tastes good too.

Body Do Over’s All Natural, Grass-Fed Whey Protein is the best tasting grass-fed protein on the market.  Don’t take me at my word; go take a look at what our customers are saying.

Oh, did I mention we guarantee our protein and if for any reason you’re not happy, I’ll personally see that you get your money back? With that in place you have NO risk and everything to gain.

In closing, I’ll leave you with this – I do what I do because I have seen the profound effect that taking care of yourself can have on your life and the lives of everyone around you.

Even if you don’t want to go with our product, I sincerely hope you’ll take this information to your healthy heart and put it to use.
