ARE PROTEIN DRINKS HEALTHY FOR ATHLETES?
Posted June 9, 2013on:
I often see athletes, after a workout, consuming protein drinks, and there’s nothing wrong with that unless it’s done in excess. According to Dr. Julian
Whitaker of the Whitaker Wellness Institute, cancer of the colon is a disease of excess protein. And he believes too much protein creates stress for kidneys. So if you’re an athlete, keep this in mind: it’s okay to consume protein drinks, but only in moderation. Dr. Brian Weiss in his book Many Lives, Many Masters, quotes a past master: “Happiness is really rooted in simplicity. The tendency to excessiveness in thought and action diminishes happiness. Excesses cloud basic values. Happiness comes from filling one’s heart with love, from faith and hope, from practicing charity and dispensing kindness. Given those attitudes, balance and harmony usually follow.”
