What’s The Best Protein Powder Without Fillers?

Posted by on Aug 1, 2017 in Health and Fitness |

When you’re spending your hard earned money on something as important as protein powder, you want to know for sure that you’re getting your money’s worth. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t like it when I find out a product is skimping on the real ingredients that I want in favor of cheap fillers so they can make more profit off of me than they deserve to. Fillers and junk that shouldn’t be in my protein powder makes me cranky.

So, I decided to put together a list of things that you just shouldn’t be finding in the protein powder that you buy, then I’ll give you a list of legit protein powders that don’t skimp on the good stuff. Make no mistake, though: the legit stuff is more expensive on the label, but you’re still paying a pretty decent price considering the cheaper stuff was scamming you in the first place.

  • Saccharin – crosses placenta and may remain in fetal tissue
  • Other artificial sweeteners – can cause negative side effects like headaches, migraines, depression, etc
  • Caffeine – this is okay, depending on what you’re using your protein powder for
  • Creatine- this is okay, depending on what you’re using your protein powder for
  • Soy protein – yucky GMO, pesticide-laden filler, can cause thyroid problems
  • Coconut flour – gas/bloating
  • Psyllium – gas/bloating
  • carrageenan – cheap filler
  • Corn syrup solids – cheap filler
  • Dextrin/glucose – contributes to fat storage
  • Skim milk powders/milk solids – cheap filler, additional lactose causes gas
  • Vegetable oils
  • Thickeners/gums – bloating/gas
  • Anything you can’t easily pronounce

Try to stick to protein powders that list as many whole, recognizable ingredients as possible. Organic and non-GMO is best here.

Here are some products that fit that bill as closely as possible. Almost any protein powder you find will have something disagreeable in it; this is about getting as close to zero as possible.

Swhey’s Halo protein powder is made of organic, non-gmo ingredients and includes only things that you can pronounce, like any good food product should.

BN Labs Vegan Protein is pretty additive free, except for some guar gum.

Bone Broth by BeLive is another great natural protein powder that is mostly additive free. It’s non-gmo, with no dairy, artificial preservatives, no soy, and no nuts with 22g of protein per serving.

How strong are carbon fiber bikes? Watch this unbelievable video and see for yourself

Posted by on Dec 16, 2016 in Health and Fitness |

Carbon fiber is touted as extremely strong, so what happens when a teen get’s his hands on some and starts pounding away at it via various methods.

This kid tried everything from bashing it against metal, rocks, concrete and much more. You’re likely not going to believe what he actually has to do to break it. I am sure a good portion of us have held something similar and know the power and force they push just from their weight alone.

The reason I am bringing this up is because biking is a great way to get some exercise, and if you are going to make the commitment to turn your health around, a sound financial commitment usually turns motivated people into highly motivated people.

I done some research, checked out City Mountain Cycling , made a choice and committed.

I just gave you everything you need to get started with a healthier lifestyle. The journey of a thousands miles begins with commitment, not the first step, otherwise the first step would never be taken in the first place.
