To give you a better idea of protein and supplements and if you should be incorporating them into your lifestyle, read on below.
In her H.E.L.P Nutrition Guides, Kayla has included optional protein shakes that you can choose to incorporate into your meal plan, if you wish. Keep in mind, these protein shakes should be used to complement your diet, not replace meals or food sources of protein.
Kayla does not recommend a specific brand of protein shake, but suggests using a low carbohydrate Whey Protein Isolate (WPI).
As mentioned above, Kayla believes in receiving all of your needed nutrients from a wholesome diet that includes the 6 main food groups.
Multivitamins could be used to prevent deficiencies or support any existing conditions if recommended by your doctor, but shouldn't be used as a complete replacement.
If you are looking to introduce supplements into your diet, we recommend seeking advice from a relevant health care professional.
