What are some good protein shakes for women?


If you are a women that is looking to start supplementing her diet with protein shakes and you ask yourself what you should do then the short answer is that it’s not much different from what men do (or not different at all really).

As a woman your body have the same protein needs a men have.

the only difference really could be that women overall protein needs are smaller due to having less muscle mass naturally so the overall amount of protein grams per your body weight is smaller.

So for example if a men protein shake would consist of

  • 2 scoops of protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop of peanut butter
  • Skim milk

Then a women protein shake would look like:

  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1.5 bananas
  • 1 scoop of peanut butter
  • skim milk

What kind of protein powder should a women use?

Again – there is nothing specific that is being aimed at woman. if you are ok and can tolerate dairy then a good whey protein powder could work for you. if you a vegan or simply don’t react well to dairy you can go for egg based protein powder or something totally vegan like pea protein, hemp protein or brown rice protein. all great options.
