Having a whey of a time: IsoWhey weight loss shakes reviewed

Losing weight is definitely a tough journey and one that takes time. Unfortunately, as much as we’d like, weight loss doesn’t happen overnight. If your doctor has told you to lose weight, or you’d like to feel a little lighter and make the move towards better health, it’s essential to begin and carry out the weight loss process the right way. This means no crash dieting and making nutritional choices that you can sustain, to avoid damaging your metabolism or putting the weight back on down the track.

IsoWhey is a brand focused on supporting the overall health of its consumers, as opposed to being the answer for quick weight loss. The products are supportive of a weight loss journey and with so many different options, there’s a product for every age and fitness level.

Benefits of IsoWhey

Being busy doesn’t mean your weight loss journey needs to suffer. IsoWhey is a family-friendly brand and its products are ideal for people on the go, in fact the products from IsoWhey are super supportive of a busy lifestyle, with endless snacks and shakes that are easy to prepare with balanced macronutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates). This means you can reach for an IsoWhey snack or shake if you’re out and about instead of reaching for a quick, sugar-filled option at a convenience store or fast-food outlet.

IsoWhey shakes are made from a pretty good formula, with those macronutrients including just 7.5g carbohydrates per serve and 15g of whey protein.

What is Whey?

IsoWhey uses whey protein in many of its products with the whey being sourced from grass-fed cows. According to Bodybuilding.com, benefits of whey include that it “supports anti-aging/longevity because of the effect it has on immunity and can also help to reduce stress, lower cortisol and increase brain serotonin levels.”
