Is Protein Powder necessary to Build Muscle or Lose Weight?

I think this is a very legitimate question, as protein powder seems to be all the rage when we are first introduced to the world of fitness. Everybody seems to be consuming it – and there are a ton of different brands.

Overweight? Lifting weights is crucial for fat and weight loss

Overweight? Lifting weights is crucial for fat and weight loss
