Question: HEALTH SHAKES

Are those health shakes at the gym cafe good for you?

Answer

The term ‘health shake’ is a deceptive one, and far from guarantees the quality of the product’s contents. An ingredients list is the only way you are going to determine what is in your food, so get clued up on what to look for and what to avoid. Gauge the benefits of the shakes according to your purpose for having it (protein content, meal replacement, health, light snack) and rate it accordingly. A processed shake, for example, could be high in sugar and other non-nutritive ingredients, only offering you empty calories. Similarly, a shake high in protein after gym may seem like a good idea, but it could be high in carbohydrates and fat as well. Pay attention to the contents of every shake you drink, regardless of whether or not it is dubbed as ‘healthy’.
