  • ‘ Whey’ to go Thomas! Great content! There’s always so much contention (and confusion) on choosing the best whey protein. Thanks for putting it all in a nutshell! Cheers!

  • -Soy raises estrogen levels. So, yes, you are correct in saying that post menopausal women benefit from soy because their estrogen levels are low. For everyone else (those who don’t have low levels of estrogen), soy can be harmful because of the repercussions that can occur in a “normal” endocrine system.

  • Is it allowed to order health supplements into Malaysia? I stay in Penang, I ordered from iHerb once and the package got stuck in Kastam. I received a letter from them to go to Kastam. They let me go with a warning and fine. They said the next time, I will be fined and my package confiscated. I don’t dare to order from iherb after that:( Those in Kuala Lumpur seemed to have no issue though. Malaysian Kastam is so confusing.

  • I loved this video Sanaz! And so timely as I’ve been making fruit and spinach smoothies with a scoop of protein powder for nearly 2 weeks now. I’ve got to look closer at the label (purchased the tub from Costco) and maybe switch to yogurt instead.

  • Hi! Thank you for these wonderful videos. There is always something new to learn. I have a question. I am 26 y/o and 30 weeks pregnant. It’s a girl. I follow a plant based diet. I’m concern about my weight. I was 90 pounds before pregnant and now I’m 104 pounds. I would like to gain more weight because it worries me sometime that I can’t gain weight. Do you think that by drinking this protein powder would help to gain weight? I’ve seen the bottle but never tried it. Any other suggestion on how to gain weight? thanks ��

  • Hey Joanna i dont know if you will see this but lately i have been really struggling with my weight. i said that i would go on a healthy lifestlyle but i did for a while and now i have fell into temptation and started bringing on junk food. Can you give me some advice. Much love xxx.

  • I actually just tried the vegan brand you mentioned, simply because I’m lactose intolerant. I thought I was the only one that did this.

  • I don’t care for protein shakes at all… I had no idea though that there was lead in a lot of them, this was good information to know. I will continue to avoid them.

  • Hello Joanna.. I’ve been watching your videos the past few weeks and have been most impressed with the content.. thank you! I just recently started resistance training a month ago (my schedule has been 2 split sessions a week, for 45 mins) and have every intention to progress into weight lifting. I have engaged a personal trainer at the gym to get me started with, and your videos have been most helpful. However I’m having doubts about how many calories I’m consuming. I weighed myself (on one of those special machines) on the first day of training and again a month later, and I had actually lost 1 kg of muscle mass. I have yet to chat with my personal trainer about it, but wanted to do a bit of research before doing so. I have some questions I’m hoping you can help me with:
    is it possible that the loss of muscle mass is very likely to do with not consuming enough calories?
    I currently take whey isolate protein drink (the brand I’m taking has 23 g protein per scoop of 25 g) only on days I’m training, and only post-workout. Should i increase that? I’m currently taking 1 scoop.
    Is it advisable to also consume protein drink on your recovery days when the after-burn is taking place?
    is it also a good idea to get started with creatine supplement at this initial stage? I am concerned about bloating as I do easily get bloated!
    My personal trainer has been pushing me at every session to work harder by consistently increasing the load on the machines, to the point where I reach muscle fatigue and could no longer continue the set. So I would perform 1 set of 8-10 reps, then he would increase the load and I’ll do another set (barely completing 8 reps) before getting tired. Is that the right way to train? My goal is to increase lean muscle mass and get the toned look, and of course to get fitter and stronger.

    I do apologise for this extremely long message. Thank you again! You’re a real inspiration! Fathima

  • Im so glad and happy because i found your Chanel i watch your Videos daily and i can say we can learn lots things from u thank u very much a big HELLO from Germany ❤❤❤❤❤

  • This was super useful, I was always afraid of trying out supplements because of the whole “fear of bulking up” which now I realise it’s super silly, I’ve started taking protein shakes and bcaas pills (will change for powder on my next batch) and it has been so helpful to my workouts, I now can do a full 110 minutes of work without feeling exhausted plus I enjoy it instead of feeling like I’m being forced to do it

  • Hi Joanna, do you mind share what multivitamins and BCAA you are using currently? I have clicked on the link provided by you in this video and realised that the products are discontinued. ��

  • not good brands at all, not a total accurate information buuuut! you are amazing on your workouts, I like it! MRM brand and grass fed beef, soy free organic eggs (NO DAIRY NO SUGAR AT ALL is very good.. goat products are really better choice) Wild cut salmon, organic sardines, and everything else marked with no nitrates, no hormones, no antibiotics is the best option… and calculated macros combine with a balance establish routine is the best for everyone. pay more for organic and your health will show better results, do not buy brands, do not pay more for sugar!

  • hey, I enjoyed this video. But have a question regarding customs, I ordered supplements before to Malaysia and its often held at customs. Do you have this problem too? Thanks in advance.

  • I like to take digestive enzyme supplement capsule when I eat certain foods like beans, cabbage, or broccoli. I also like to add a potassium containing electrolyte powder to water I drink when I work out or just throughout the day.

  • Nestle bought out garden of life in December 2019… I have a huge problem with that. I didn’t know it so I already bought garden of life prenatal… they better not have tampered with the ingredients…. but you know they did…. it’s Nestle after all

  • I wish you were my mentor! You are a wealth of knowledge! The past year and a half our family has been changing our diets, our health has tremendously improved, but our grocery bill has quadrupled.
