Nutritionists warn that protein powders and shakes from Australia can cause as much damage to your waist as a Big Mac.

Protein supplements have long been the trend among millennials for health and fitness, but many do not consider their effect when looking at the rest of their food intake.

Dietitian Julie Gilbert of Solutions with Food said that the average dose of a protein supplement contains around 10-30 grams of protein, which is up to half the recommended daily amount.

Another problem is that people can be misled into thinking that protein shakes will make them slimmer but are not aware that they can be very energetically heavy.

& # 39; It would take 1.5 – 2 hours of exercise to justify that energy intake, & # 39; she said.

Excess protein, like almost anything, can cause problems and has been associated with an increase in heart disease, kidney damage and even weight gain, to name just a few.

Protein supplements can also contain a whole range of other additives, such as artificial sweeteners, caffeine and sugar, which can cause problems with excessive use.

Jamie Rose Chambers, a dietitian and nutritionist from Sydney, recommends that a much healthier way is to get enough protein from whole-grain products such as lean meat and fish.

& # 39; Food will affect our mood – and our mood will definitely affect the food we choose to eat. & # 39;

She said that whole-grain lean proteins are one of the best ways to improve your mood through your diet.
