Hereof, is it OK to drink whey protein without working out?
Increased dietary protein is one effective strategy. For example, increased whey protein ingestion with and without exercise training is associated with enhanced weight loss, body composition and subjective hunger in overweight and obese individuals.
Also, what will happen if I just drink protein shakes? If you get too hungry and end up eating regular meals in addition to your protein shakes, you can end up gaining weight. Side effects such as dizziness and increased bowel movements can make your days on protein shakes uncomfortable.
Beside above, should I drink protein shakes even on rest days?
To make sure we're refuelling our muscles so they can repair after exercise (and therefore grow!), a protein shake is most commonly taken post-workout. In fact, not getting enough protein on rest days can actually hinder your muscle growth and athletic performance.
How dangerous is whey protein?
Whey protein is a mixture of beta-lactoglobulin, alpha lactalbumin, bovine serum albumin, and immunoglobins. Possible benefits include weight loss and lowering cholesterol. Possible dangers include nausea and headaches, but at moderate doses, whey protein is not considered dangerous.
