❎ALL ABOUT PROTEIN SHAKES❎ In short: - PROTEIN is a macronutrient that your body NEEDS in order to build & maintain muscle - Protein is found in many different sources such as: chicken��, seafood ��, beans, oats, milk��, broccoli��, protein shakes, etc. - Protein shakes (PS) are just ONE source of protein - PS simply just contain lots of protein condensed into a powder form! Many people like PS because of their convenience. Instead of having to eat a lot of foods that have protein in them to receive the amount of protein they need, they just take PS to help fuel their body with SOME of the protein that they need. . ❌PS have nothing magical in them that gives you gains or speeds up your progress❌ Taking PS will only aid you in building muscle if you are already CONSISTENTLY weightlifting. PS are not steroids and will not magically give you muscles. You still have to get your butt in the gym everyday & work hard to get the gainz yourself. ���� . Most PS are not meal replacements. ����‍♀️����‍♀️ Because most protein powders contain little nutrients besides protein, this makes them an UNFAVORABLE meal replacement. You need more than protein to survive. . ��So: Do you need PS to see progress and get gainz? ���� No, absolutely not. BUT you DO need PROTEIN to build and maintain muscle. You can get protein through a variety of food sources, PS are simply ONE of your options of protein. . My fav protein powder is @legionath Whey+ Mocha Cappuccino or Salted Caramel (they also taste bomb mixed ��) ����Discount code: “NAOMI10” (link to shop in my story/bio) . #legionathletics #teamlegion #proteinpowder #proteinshake #supplementsthatwork #cleaneatingrecipe #healthyeatingideas #healthyeat #nutritiontips #healthysmoothie

Many Bollywood celebs use protein powders, protein shakes and sometimes bodybuilding drugs along with exercise to enhance muscles and get better physical fitness. But Akshay Kumar is completely against these supplements. Akshay believes that to make a body, only home-made food should be eaten. Akshay says, "A culture has come up among the youth these days to take protein shakes and supplements. I am totally against this thing and cannot understand why people do it. By doing this they would become a bi-product of themselves." People have forgotten ghee, milk, curd, lassi nowadays and have stopped eating homemade food."

Celebs on social media

Copying celebs can be dangerous


According to Akshay, not just only by copying these celebs but also by adopting a good lifestyle, you can make a good body. Akshay says, "A lot of people get emotionally attached to these stars and start using their products. Many players also use such products. People feel that this is the right way. But I Don't think. You should choose things according to your nature, not according to anyone."

Give 1 hour to yourself

Akshay Kumar says that if you want to create good health, then find the right workout and diet for yourself or seek the help of professionals. You will not find workout motivation on social media. If you copy a star, you will not get any benefit from it. On the occasion of Fit India, Akshay Kumar released a video and made people aware that "a man who cannot give at least 1 hour to his body out of 24 hours, should die." "Do any exercise in the hour, whether you go to the gym, do running, cycling, do yoga, cross-fit. Do the easiest walk if you cannot do anything. Do something. If you do nothing, you will die."
