We know that many people find it difficult to add enough protein to their diet, but eating enough protein is very important. So, make sure to discover now:

  • Why proteins are extremely important
  • How to easily add high-quality proteins to your diet
  • Explanation about protein powders
  • Which protein powders and protein bars we recommend (and why)

We have been using Myprotein products to get a high energy level and the best performances for almost 3 years now. We have tried many products and are very satisfied with the quality of the products.

So, are you curious about how we provide our body with high-quality and enough proteins? Then read this blog!

Why you should add enough proteins to your diet… 

Proteins are involved in various functions and regulatory processes in the body and are therefore indispensable! Proteins provide energy (kcal) and amino acids. Amino acids are important building blocks for protein in body cells.

In short, proteins are important for:

  • Building blocks for cells in muscles, organs, the nervous system, bones, and blood
  • Maintenance, building and recovery of muscles 
  • Transport of nutrients and oxygen
  • Neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin
  • Fuel (high energy level) and feeling full
  • Enzymes, antibodies, and hormones

As an athlete, it is extra important to get enough protein for the maintenance of muscles, muscle building, and muscle recovery, but also for a high energy level.

Which Protein Powder do you choose? 

In addition to eating proteins from daily foods, you can add (extra) proteins through a protein powder. Protein powder is made from whey. This is a natural residual product that is released during the production of cheese. Various ingredients can be added to Whey to create a specific protein powder such as sweeteners, aromas, and ingredients to make the powder better to mix, but there are also protein powders without additives.

Benefits of Protein Powder

  • A highly concentrated form of proteins
  • Easy way to increase protein intake
  • No unnecessary calories such as carbohydrates and fats
  • Applicable in different recipes
  • Easy to combine with other ingredients
  • Perfect for shakes, smoothies, and baking 

Differences Impact Whey Protein and Whey Isolate

Below we discuss the differences between the two most popular protein powders.

Impact Whey Protein

Suitable for all fitness goals. Addition of BCAAs (which also occur naturally in proteins). BCAAs help to build and maintain new muscle.

  • 21g of protein per serving
  • 4.5g BCAAs
  • 1.9 fat, 1 g carbohydrate, no sugar
  • Contains all essential amino acids
  • 40 different flavors

Impact Whey Isolate

Up to 50% OFF with code CALIFAM

Perfect if you are looking for a powder with little carbohydrates and fat and extra protein. Particularly suitable if you want to lose weight or get shredded.

  • 23g protein per serving
  • 90% proteins
  • No fat, no sugar
  • Less than 1 gram of carbohydrates
  • Contains all essential amino acids
  • 20 different flavors
  • Finer mixable in shakes

We usually use Impact Whey Protein ourselves. This protein powder is 100% suitable for all fitness goals, but if you are looking for a protein powder with a high concentration of protein and less fat and carbohydrates, we recommend Impact Whey Isolate. Personally, we find Impact Whey Isolate better for shakes because it is slightly more mixable.

Protein Powder Flavors

We have been using protein powders throughout our fitness and Calisthenics Journey (already 11+ years). So we have already tested a lot: dozens of flavors, but also Natural and Vegan variants.

Protein powder with or without additives?

We have taken Natural Protein Powder for a while, but to be honest we find that a lot less tasty. We chose Natural because it doesn’t contain additives such as flavorings and sweeteners.

You can also choose a flavor based on Stevia sweetener (natural sweetener). We really like the Stevia Vanilla Flavor! Add these to a healthy snack such as banana bread or a smoothie and you have a protein-rich meal without additives!

Our favorite protein powders (+what to eat with)

Now you are probably curious what our favorite flavors are, and in which dish we use the protein powders… Well, our favorite flavors are currently:

  • Strawberry Cream
    Very nice in a shake, smoothie, or breakfast blend
  • Apple Crumble & Custard
    Perfect for your (warm) Brinta/Oatmeal blend
  • Stevia Vanilla (Natural Protein Powder)
    Very suitable for healthy baking such as banana bread, but also in smoothies with, for example, frozen fruit, banana, oatmeal, linseed, yogurt, etc.
  • White chocolate or Cookies & Cream
    Create the tastiest (and healthiest) baked meals such as protein bars, muffins, pancakes, brownies, and cakes!

Vegan Protein Powders

We regularly have periods when we eat vegetarian or vegan. That’s why we tried all of Myprotein’s Vegan Protein Powders! They have protein powders based on Soy, Peas and beans, Oats and peas, Hemp, and Brown rice.

We found the Brown Rice Protein the most neutral and tasty. In addition, it consists of 80% protein! We would recommend it if you choose Vegan!

Snack Attack – Protein Bars 🙂

Do you want an easy and quick snack before and/or after your training session? Then it is always good to have protein bars with you! In any case, it is useful to always have a protein bar with you to prevent you from unexpectedly getting too little protein.

Which protein bar do we usually take?

We usually take the Vegan or Regular Carb Crusher! With 21 g proteins (regular) and 15 g (vegan) and little sugar, this is the perfect fiber and protein-rich snack for any time of the day and you don’t even have to feel guilty while snacking! Have you already tried all the flavors?

The most delicious protein bar?

We think the 6 Layer Bar from Myprotein is the best! With 6 different layers, this bar is a taste sensation and it has a perfect texture! With 20g of protein and little sugar, this bar is the solution for every moment! Have you already tried the Chocolate Brownie Flavor?
