“I don’t want to have protein shakes because I don’t want to gain weight or get bulky”
Increasing your protein intake or drinking protein shakes won’t make you gain weight unless you increase your daily calorie intake. A caloric surplus consisting of ANY food will cause weight gain (doesn’t matter whether that comes from fruit, chips, soda, protein powder, vegetables or pizza). So no, protein powder alone will not cause you to gain weight or get bulky. If you are eating at or below your calorie maintenance for the day, you will be fine!
If anything protein powder helps you LOSE fat and gain tone, lean muscle!
p.s…. this girl (Abbie Burrows) LIFTS WEIGHTS and drinks PROTEIN SHAKES. Does she look like a man? Uhm I think not… She has curves in all the right places thanks to a clean diet, protein and weight lifting!
