I have been seeing on television, and on the Internet, that they can make you gain weight, and not muscle weight, because of the sugar content.
Well I look at every label for myself, and also my husband with his diabetes, heart, and kidney diseases.
I have a protein shake most lunchtimes, and I use fat free/skimmed milk, as I have to have calcium for my bones. I use half Anytime Protein, and half Collagen Peptides Hydrolyzed.
The reason being that the protein has 2 grams of sugar, and I only use half, so 1 gram. The Peptides doesn’t even list it, and it is so bland, that I am sure there is no sugar in it. One has 20 grams of protein, and the other has 13, so I get 16.5 grams.
I do add half a banana to it, which has natural sugar, and also a teaspoon of Spirulina powder that has no sugar. I feel the healthiest I have ever felt.
What do you recommend after working out?
