Problem

Protein Rich Supplements

Most protein sources such as bars, shakes, powders, yogurts and protein-infused water:

  • Contain high amounts of fat, sugar, or carbs
  • Are loaded with calories making protein synonymous with “meal replacement”
  • Require drinking large quantities of liquid
  • Require mixing or refrigeration

Using these products is like putting a piece of broccoli into a hot fudge sundae…
