How do I know which protein shake to choose?
If you want to build muscle and burn fat, you need to consume around 1g of protein per pound that
you weigh, while at the same time making sure not to go over how many calories you consume.
There's no way of getting around it but you need to monitor your protein intake to do so!
A great way to ensure you are getting enough protein while keeping calorie intake down is by
adding protein shakes to your diet!
They are also:
Time effective ✅
Cost effective ✅
and Tasty..✅ (which helps curb cravings)
Whey, Casein, Weight Gainer, Pea Protein, Egg, Rice, Hemp.. There are so many options, so how
do I know which protein shake to choose?
Let's break down WHEY and CASEIN:
A fast digesting protein (WHEY) is especially useful after training when you don't feel like sitting
down or have time for a post workout proper meal! Our LIV Body Whey protein formula contains
zero artificial sweeteners and doesn’t use an “isolate protein blend” to conceal cheaper forms of protein.
The entire 24g of protein per serving consists of Pure Whey Isolate, delivering you a highly bioavailable
form of protein that is easily digested.

A slow digesting protein (CASEIN) is a great option for protein -if you still need to hit your protein
intake for the day- before bed because it drip feeds muscle building aminos into your bloodstream
over night to rebuild muscle tissue as you sleep!
Have a hard time gaining weight or adding muscle? (Which means your a hard gainer or ectomorph)
You then should look into "weight gainer" protein or a high calorie protein powder that also includes
a significant amount of carbohydrates.
If you follow a strict diet , have allergies to dairy or need a vegan option, here are some other good
forms of protein!
PEA PROTEIN -
Made from the golden pea plant. And is actually a SLOW RELEASED protein (like CASEIN) that we
spoke about above. So great before bed. And don't worry.. it doesn't taste like peas. You can get it
flavored or flavorless!
LIV Body’s Lean Vegan has 24 grams of high-quality pea protein isolate— the most bioavailable source

of protein you can find, that doesn’t make you bloat. You’ll feel fuller longer, which can help accelerate
weight loss and boost your metabolism.
Great vegan alternative!!
(Not suitable for Vegans)
But a great source of protein made from separating and dehydrating egg whites from the yolk.
It's a complete protein source.. containing all the essential amino acids as well as other health boosting
vitamins and minerals.
RICE PROTEIN (great vegan option)
I know what you're thinking (rice is a carb) but did you know brown rice contains around 8g of
protein per 100g ... WHICH is isolated and ground into powder!
Ideal for vegans AND soy or gluten allergy friendly!
HEMP PROTEIN (I don't find ideal for muscle growth because it's low on leucine)
If you don't know what leucine is..
Leucine is the most abundant of the 3 branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) in muscles (the other two
are isoleucine and valine). BCAAs make up a high proportion of the amino acids in muscle.
Leucine is an essential BCAA and your body does not produce this naturally so we must get it in other
ways (like dietary sources)
Ok.. back to hemp protein..
It's derived from the seed of the cannabis plant 🌱 and is high in fiber!!
Not our favorite protein source but it's not a bad one and does well with people who have certain allergies.
PEANUT PROTEIN!! (Another great vegan option)
Made from defatted peanuts and contains about 10-15g of protein per ounce. Peanut protein is also
High digestible and contains all 9 essential amino acids (which makes it a complete protein).
A complete protein contains all 9 of the essential amino acids whereas an incomplete protein contains
some but not all.
