- Myth busting
Why do women need protein?
Protein is great for supporting your body to recover from training, but that is not the only role of protein in the body.
Proteins are found in every cell in the body and are essential for repairing cells as well as making new ones, and that’s why it is important to get plenty of protein in the diet.
Do women need to take different types of protein supplements than men?
No! Whey protein and other types of protein such as milk, soy and brown rice are perfectly suitable for both men and women.
The protein found in protein supplements is recognised and used by the body in the same way as any protein source, for example chicken or fish.
Are GoNutrition protein supplements designed for women?
GoNutrition protein supplements are developed to be safely used by both men and women. Protein supplements are a great way to increase your daily protein intake regardless of whether you are male or female.
Do you have a specific range of supplements for women?
We do not have a specific range of supplements for women. Many companies simply re-brand their products in female focused packaging and offer smaller tubs at inflated prices.
This practice is often referred to as "Pink and Shrink" and is not something we at GoNutrition believe in.
Our products are developed to suit the needs of both women and men and as such we have no need to produce a specific female range.
Will protein supplements make me bulky?
In short, no. This is a very common misconception about protein supplements. Many supplement companies target mainly male gym users and they use imagery of bulky and muscular men in their adverts.
This had led many to believe that protein supplements cause women to look muscular and bulky, but this could not be further from the truth.
Protein supplements used alongside a healthy diet and regular training will promote a toned and healthy looking physique as well as leaving you feeling great too.
Do women need to take different amounts of protein to men?
The amount of protein required in the diet depends on a number of factors, including gender, age, activity levels and your dietary goals.
For example women are recommended to consume 2000 calories per day which is 500 calories less than men.
Therefore overall protein intake will be less for women. 40% of your daily energy from protein is a good starting point, and for someone consuming 2000 calories per day that equates to 200g of protein.
Protein intake should be from a number of sources including wholefoods.
