WHEY

 

This is a protein that restores energy and supports your immune system. A scoop of whey powder has enough protein as a chicken breast! After a workout, this super food will boost your insulin to absorb all the energy stored in your body. If you consume whey as a supplement, you can burn twice as much fat compared to a person who doesn’t. Mix it in polenta, milkshakes, or smoothies!
