5 Ways LeanFit Protein Can Help You
Contrary to what some people think, protein powders aren’t just for bodybuilders.
LeanFit protein powders are considered foods and are suitable for all ages and levels of activity.
Increase the Protein in Your Diet
Just mix them with water water, almond milk, or your preferred beverage for a protein shake; or add them to smoothies, include in homemade protein bar recipes and also use in baking to boost the protein content.

Convenient Nutrition On-The-Go
Unlike most proteins, protein powder doesn’t need to be refrigerated, and you can easily carry it around with you in a pouch or shaker cup for when you need it. Or make a smoothie and take it with you during your commute or on your way to exercise.
Optimize Your Post-workout Recovery
During training or exercise, muscle fibres are torn by intense contraction of the muscle. To repair these “micro-tears” and build strong muscle fibres, our bodies undergo something known as protein synthesis. The protein we consume after exercise is broken down into various amino acids and used to repair the muscles.
As you push yourself in the gym, you’ll see better results by helping your muscles recover with fast-digesting protein sources. And because you want to refuel as quickly as possible after working out, protein powders are ideal.
Increase Muscle Mass
As a bodybuilder you will need more protein than the average adult to build and maintain muscle mass, and a steady intake of protein throughout the day will be required, as well as post-workout.
It can be quite costly and even tiring to get all the protein you will need through food sources. Protein shakes are convenient as they require minimal preparation, and they taste great.
Support weight Loss
You can replace unhealthy or high-calorie meals or snacks with a lower-calorie protein shake or smoothie. These higher protein snacks or meals can help you stay full for longer, and less likely to crave unhealthy foods.
If you are exercising as well, protein powders can help you build lean muscle. Over time, the increased muscle mass will contribute to raising your metabolism which in turn helps you burn more calories, even at rest.
