I started gym a few days ago. Can I take protein shake (whey protein) after my workout? Is it safe? I do not have any known food allergies. I have attached my anthropometry chart with BMI. I heard that protein will make the person unhealthy after stopping it. Is it true? Please suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
First of all, I must say that as per your height and weight your BMI (body mass index) is fine. Now you should start taking good quality foods enriched with protein. Once you are taking whey protein, it is like one-sided food. As you need more energy to do a workout, it is better to go for a balanced diet.
Thank you doctor.
Actually, I am a vegetarian. I eat eggs. The diet which I am taking is as follows. Breakfast at 7 AM along with two boiled eggs. Two boiled eggs at 10.30 AM again. At 12.30 PM lunch along with two boiled eggs. By 4 PM two bananas and at 4:30 PM leaving to gym. After workout two boiled eggs, two bananas with 400 ml milk. Dinner at 8.30 PM. Is this diet fine? Or do I need any change? Please suggest.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Your diet is almost fine. But reduce your egg intake as it is more than the required amount for a day. So, take a maximum of two eggs and three bananas per day.
Take chapatti, rice, pulses, and sprouts. Your milk intake is fine. Take plant-based good proteins like soy products, etc. Take 400 g of fruits. Four pieces in each fruit like citrus and fibrous.
Take oat sometimes. Do not take outside food.
