Getting enough protein while trying to lose weight can be a challenge when you are on a vegan diet. Alot of people don’t realize that there are vegan protein powders just for weight loss.
The main types of all plant protein powder
- Brown Rice Protein
- Pea Protein
- Mixture Of Different Plant Protein Powders
If you are looking for more specific brands you can try any of these:
- Lyfe Fuel Daily Essential Shake
- Garden of life raw organic fit
- Orgain organic slim protein powder
- Naturade Vegan Slim
- So Lean & so clean
- Vega Protein and Greens
- Genuine Health Vegan Fermented Greens
I recommend you go to your local co-op to look for these rather than buy them online. That way you can talk to some of the employees and ask what they prefer.
When you are looking just keep an eye out for two main words: Vegan and Slim. You want to avoid powders that are not vegan friendly obviously, but some vegan protein powders add a lot of extra soy and nut fat to make the taste creamier– by looking for the word ‘slim’ you can avoid this.
The Best Tasting
Of all of these my favorites would have to be the vega berry protein powder which is perfectly fruity. The berry flavors is made from organic fruit juice sweetner and has completely natural ingredients. If you are more of a chocolate lover than a berry fan you can also try chocolate and vanilla flavors. You can read more vega berry protein powder reviews here.
Aside from vega the next best tasting is probably orgain. It comes in chocolate or vanilla, the chocolate is absolutely delightful and creamy. The only drawback is that it is not really the best for weightloss like some of the others.
When To Take Your Protein Powder
If you are craving a mid night snack this a great chance to have some of your slim vegan protein powder instead of a piece of cake or something too carby. A protein shake like this will fill you up and instead of storing the calories as fat, your body will feed your muscles instead. This is especially true if you did any weight lifting during the day which can further increase weight loss.
