Efficient and adequate recovery from high-intensity training is very important – and protein can play a crucial role in this process.
Protein can also really help to develop and repair muscle tissue, cartilage, skin and blood.
Whilst you will find and consume protein regularly by eating foods such as chicken, eggs, fish, almonds and oats, as well as taking on board protein shakes and bars – you wouldn’t necessarily associate ice cream with sports nutrition – or indeed it being a food source that can boost performance.
That’s where Wheyts’ Ice Cream bucks the trend. Many of us are put off from introducing protein supplements into our diet, especially if the taste isn’t nice, but Wheyts is certainly an exception.
The ice cream is 100 per cent natural and contains no artificial ingredients – and is rich with 12 grams of protein in a 125g hub. Its flavour is actually something to savour.
Believe it or not, it’s completely gluten and sugar-free and uses stevia and xylitol as natural sweeteners.
In fact, a third of your recommended calorie-intake – 2,500 for men and 2,000 for women – should come from protein – in which we need between 45 to 55 grams per day.
Along with standard food protein intake – a tub or two of Wheyts’ premium protein isolate daily can make up the difference and take you towards your long-term lifestyle goals.
Indeed, it will help you to recover and build muscle mass in the same way as other products out there.
The products come in a variety of flavours – including: Dutch Chocolate, Wild Strawberry and Island Vanilla.
