Being in shape is a hard work. You have to exercise everyday. But exercise is not enough if you do not follow your diet. You have to track what are you eating and how much are you eating. It might sound easy, but requires dedication and determination.
You may follow your diet and exercise daily, but cannot reach your body goal yet. Why this happens? Actually, there is an easy explanation: you do not know what to eat after exercising!

Protein shakes are very popular right now. There are so many different options and flavour right now in the market. But it would be best if you could make your own protein shake at home. It is much more healthier and cheap. You won't need that much things anyway, just everyday ingredients which we all have at home. Here is the one quick recipe:

Water… Special water.
When we exercise, we sweat a lot. It is not only unpleasant normal body fluid, but also it dried us from inside.
