Protein is an essential part of any diet. Today’s society consumes too many carbohydrates and fats and not enough proteins. This has led to an increase in unwanted body fat and related health problems.

Protein used to be associated with bodybuilding and muscle gain. Today, many health practitioners are recommending that people of all ages balance their meals with protein.

Protein is essential for healthy cell production, organ health, hair, skin and nails (not just muscles). Protein also helps you feel full.

Protein regulates the blood sugar fluctuations that people get from eating too many refined carbohydrates. Consequently, it is very beneficial for diabetics and anyone experiencing low energy, mood swings and depression.  This is especially important for helping children with behavioral disorders, blood sugar fluctuations are a major contributing factor to their mood swings.

The highest concentration of protein in whole foods is in animal foods such as meat, chicken, fish, eggs, and low fat cheese.  Grains, legumes and nuts also contain some protein, but the concentration of protein is not as high as it is in animal foods.

Protein Powders

There is another convenient way to add protein to your diet and that is by using a high quality, 100% natural protein powder.

There are many different sources of protein powders on the market today, but the majority is not made for the educated, health food consumer who is interested in clean, pure, and natural health foods.

Most  brands contain artificial additives, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavours and colours, etc. Some of these additives are even under investigation for their safety by health experts.

If you have used a protein powder before, chances are, it was artificially sweetened. Have you ever wondered why you get headaches, bloat, have gas and break out with pimples?

Most people think this is a ‘normal’ part of using protein powders. Well, it’s not. The artificial sweeteners used basically ferment in the intestines and cause bloating and gas. There is also a possibility that you may have been allergic to the protein you are using.

That is why Tony Sfeir’s Designer Physique developed seven 100% natural, gluten free Protein powders with ZERO artificial additives. That way you choose what best suits your body (if you are aware of any allergies you may have) and what type of diet you are on.

For a Vegan/Vegetarian type diet you can choose Designer Physique’s new ‘100% NATUREL’ Pea Protein Isolate in delicious French Vanilla, Swiss Chocolate flavours or non flavoured.
For dairy based protein you can choose choose Designer Physique’s ‘100% NATUREL’ Whey Protein Concentrate also in delicious French Vanilla, Swiss Chocolate flavours or non flavoured.

They are both naturally flavoured and sweetened using a new, all 100% natural, low calorie sweetener extracted from an exotic African fruit.

A lot of mothers are looking for a quick and tasty but HEALTHY snack to give their children. Designer Physique’s Whey Protein Concentrate tastes fantastic! Even when mixed with just water! NO NASTIES and GREAT for everyone from kids to elite athletes.

Your children don’t even know their ‘Milo – substitute’ is now fortified with protein, which will help them get more nourishment from their snack and avoid the high sugar crash that affects their behaviour.
