Veerji, do you want to drink them because you lift weights?

Protein shakes are intended to supplement your diet, to help you meet your protein goals when your diet doesn't already fulfill them. If you can find a vegan protein shake, great, but if not, there are foods you can incorporate into your diet which will do the trick.

The RDA (protein) for an average man is about 40g. I consume 100 grams of protein a day. 4 pints of skimmed milk, 46 almonds and a cheese dish every day surpasses this. It is also relatively cheap.

"May contain traces of egg" ....is a warning for people with egg allergies. It doesn't mean that the product contains egg....But that the product was manufactured around or near production belts where eggs may have been present for other products.

On the same level, there are many other products consumed by vegans that have come from production lines where traces of processed meats for other products from production lines may well be present ....HOWEVER, there are no warnings-since allergies to meat traces are not as common as egg.

This is more of a personal choice..and is about bibek.

For any prepared/pre-packed...processed food product, you can NEVER be 100% certain what kind of 'suchai' was used in manufacture process.

Choice is yours as per intellect and individual circumstances.

As for protein shakes and the essential amino acids, minerals and nutrients that are concentrated in these drinks....I am certain that you can't replicate it with natural diet, especially because of the number of chemicals/pesticides used for fruit and vegetable.

I know of many SIngh's that workout and use theses shakes and other supplements.

Thanks you for replying.

I'm underweight and so skinny, so I wanted to take some weight gaining shakes to help me gain more weight. Also I wanted to start working out and get a bit more fit.

I shall probably start eating almonds then thanks for the tip.

Thanks Veer ji for replying, I do eat processed food. Just feel a bit guilty when I see the "may contain traces of egg", so probably have to get over it.

Whilst it's not a common issue for most people, protein shakes (or protein powders) cause heart palpitations in some instances, so take it easy. I found my resting heart rate would fluctuate wildly when I drank protein shakes years ago, so I stopped and began incorporating protein into my diet instead. Much better for me at least. But like I said it's a non issue for most folks, but one to keep in mind if problems are experienced.

With protien for lean muscle growth and recovery all forms of protien are not equal, whey protein is more absorbable by the muscles hence why a lot of protien shakes incorporate it.

For gaining muscle it is very difficult to consume enough protien on a vegetarian diet without also consuming excess fat and carbs.

Protien shakes are only supposed p supplement your dietary intake of protien they are not supposed to be your primary source of protien.

Thanks for the tip, hopefully no side effects for me.

There are plant based protein shakes you can take, designed for vegans.

Think I bought vegan protein powder, but all of them do say may contain trace off egg.

At the moment, excess fats and carbs should't be a problem for me as I'm really skinny.

If you're looking to gain weight, you'll need more than a few extra almonds, bro. Use calorie calculator to see how many calories per day you need to maintain or gain weight. Add about 500 to that number and eat about that much.

    • Amrita Sher gil, similar paintings to the ones of the bengali renaissance   i like the earthy colours she used. the people in he paintings look really depressed.    I remember seeing a painting of nihung singhs by her  but i cant find it now  amrita in her studio 
    • remember when the kar sewa babe tried demolishing the 200 yr old dharshan deori in the middle of the night at tarn taran darbar sahib, well 10 months on and nothing has been restored yet! no one has been arrested for the damage despite a complaint made.  Funny how the youth that damaged the statues of the dancing people at amritsar were arrested straight away, yet the people involved in demolishing a 200 yr old building at Tarn Taran darbar sahib are still walking around free. https://www.hindustantimes.com/cities/10-months-on-no-progress-on-restoration-of-darshani-deori-in-tarn-taran-gurdwara/story-TUnzuVr5i9TtVxaJqbnRHK.html 10 months on, no progress on restoration of Darshani Deori in Tarn Taran gurdwara   CITIES Updated: Jan 30, 2020 22:55 IST Anil Sharma Hindustan Times, Tarn Taran A view of the partially demolished Darshani Deori of Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Tarn Tran in on Saturday. (HT PHOTO)       Tarn Taran Ten months after Kar Sewa activists demolished a portion of the Darshani Deori, the main entrance leading to the sanctum sanctorum of the historic Gurdwara Darbar Sahib on March 31, restoration and preservation of the structure is yet to begin. Baba Jagtar Singh headed the Kar Sewa Group involved in the incident, but was not present at the spot. The only work towards restoration has been that the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has formed a sub-committee of its members and subject experts for the preservation and renovation of this important relic of Sikh heritage. Gurdwara manager Balwinder Singh said, “Restoration work of the Deori has not been started as SAD (Amritsar) president Simranjit Singh Mann has filed a writ petition in the Punjab and Haryana high court. However, we have no stay order from the court on restoration and preservation work of the structure.” Mann has filed a plea in court seeking action against Baba Jagtar Singh and the activists, who, he claimed, had ‘destroyed’ the gurdwara. An SGPC member Bhagwant Singh Sialka claimed, “Experts from Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Ludhiana, have scanned the structure for its restoration.” No action against accused, despite SGPC panel indictment  The accused in the case are roaming free, in spite of a four-member SGPC probe committee’s recommendation of a police case against them. The panel comprised Sialka, Bhai Ram Singh (both SGPC members); Gurmeet Singh and Harjit Singh Lalu Ghuman (assistant secretaries). It had submitted its report to SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal on April 5, 2019. After this, Longowal had said they will get police cases registered against the accused. The panel had held the Kar Sewa and the then manager of the gurdwara, Partap Singh, ‘guilty’ of demolishing the historic structure without its permission. It had also taken back the right of doing Kar Sewa (voluntarily religious service) at the gurdwara from Baba Jagtar Singh. “The Kar Sewa head had tendered an apology, and had claimed that he had not received the new order from the SGPC for not demolishing the historic structure. The probe into this claim is on,” Sialka told HT over phone. When questioned, if a police complaint had been lodged against the accused, SGPC chief secretary Roop Singh said, “I am not aware. I hope the manager of the gurdwara must have lodged a police complaint.” Gurdwara manager Balwinder said no complaint had been lodged. “The SGPC is not only shielding the accused, it is also playing with the sentiments of devotees,” claimed Harpal Singh, general secretary, SAD (Amritsar). Tejbir Singh, of Tarn Taran, said, “For trying to demolish folk dancers’ statues at the Heritage Street, police have registered a case of attempt to murder. For demolishing a 200-year-old historic structure, however, no action has been taken. This is shameful.” Quotes (if needed)   Restoration work of the Deori has not been started as SAD (A) president Simranjit Singh Mann has filed a writ petition in the Punjab and Haryana HC. Balwinder Singh, manager, Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, Tarn Taran The SGPC is not only shielding the accused, it is also playing with the sentiments of devotees. Harpal Singh, general secretary, SAD (A)
    • Samurai armour was really quite deceptive when it came down to appearance, it looks really fragile and not fit for purpose, but was extremely tough.  The Samurai developed a special lacquer which was used to toughen natural materials.  This enabled the armour to retain toughness and lightweight properties which enabled the Samurai to move with speed and agility.  They wore face masks that were intended to frighten the enemy whilst masking ones own expressions during battle.     
    • Today we have a major issue with Sikh youth walking into university classes like sociology and walking out extremist.  Whether that be feminist extremist or LGBTQ extremist or atheist.  When it comes to Gurbani these groups and people look for lines or a line of Gurbani and take it out of context to support their extremist LGBTQ beliefs on marriage,  gender being same or new thing no gender or infinite gender.  Like we had the ignorant couple from the states who got married by having his wife walk along with him.  The point being they dont follow Guru Sahib.   They attain 'knowledge' else where and want to force it on Sikhi.   The Sikh youth laugh at the Sikhs who bow at a fake baba's feet.  But, the irony is the Gurmukhs are shaking their head at both of them.  One is bowing to a fake baba and the other is bowing their mind by accepting secular knowledge that will always be in the trial phase.  Neither are better than the other.  The youth of today, and it's been done by a few old farts, attain masters or doctorate in fields like chemistry,  sociology or another field and then say we have a doctorate in Sikhi.  They write articles on what they want Sikhi to be and in their name they put "dr.".  Such deception is being done by these old farts.  Sikhi is about honesty, yet they start their article with deception.    If you want to be a Sikh, then Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is the teacher and classroom.  Not your sociology professor who tells you abortion of a 37 week baby is a women birth right choice, but dont kill that cow because imeat industry  is killing the environment,  go vegan.   In short,  dont be the monkey with the wrench. 
    • When it comes to other religious scriptures why did Guru Sahib say to read them? Was it to understand how to be moral? Gurbani provides us with spiritual wisdom and morals of the highest kind. It would be counterproductive to look else where for morals. Guru sahib says, give me your head (completely and only focus on the shabad) when you come on the Gurmat path. Guru Sahib tells sikhs to read other religious scriptures because when a Gurmukh has fully attuned his mind with Gurbani he can see naam everywhere. So when reading other religious scripture the Gurmukh can pick up on the naam that is there and serve the humans that are lost in the vedas, gita, bible, Koran, Torah, etc. Also Gurbani makes references on other religious scriptures concepts so we can achieve a total picture of their concepts when reading their scriptures. But many lose sight of the goal and start collecting merchandise (intellectual knowledge and maya)from these scriptures. But Guru Sahib says all merchandise can be achieved from Gurbani. Anand Sahib says this path is sharper than a double edged sword and finer than a hair.  The path of Gurmat can be simple if we follow the instructions of Gurbani or life can be made difficult by losing the purpose in life as Gurbani describes it.
