Need an easy way to up your protein intake in the new year? Today’s your day: There are tons of shakes, bars and drinks on sale for up to 44 percent off right now at Amazon. From Ensure to Gatorade to Joint Juice, there’s a lot to choose from in this sale.

Protein helps keep you full, and athletes love to drink shakes immediately after a workout to build muscle. You can get protein as a powder, or as a supplement, but our favorite way is to get them in a shake — it makes it way easier to drink on-the-go, and eliminates the need to fiddle around with measuring out the correct dosage for our morning smoothies. We also love protein bars as a quick snack between meals or after a workout.

Whichever way you prefer to have your protein, this sale has a little something for you:

“This is an excellent product if you're looking for a way to get extra protein in your diet,” writes one reviewer. “They taste great, have 0 grams of sugar, are low calorie and are an excellent snack. The price on Amazon is the cheapest I found, much lower than even Walmart. I highly recommend these shakes for everyone.”

“I would never give an 'energy' bar five stars but these have really won me over,” writes one five-star reviewer. “What I love about these TT bars (I buy only the Peanut Butter favor) is that they have a low glycemic index. So even as they are chocolate coated, they do not spike my sugar levels and dump me down later as most sweet bars will. The filling is easily digested and never gummy or sticky.”

“This is my favorite meal shake so far.” writes one five-star reviewer. “The Classic Chocolate is the way to go! It's delicious and I like the nutrition and ingredients label! I have this for breakfast because I'm lazy and it's cheaper and healthier than coffee and a bagel/donut/muffin/etc. for breakfast. I will definitely reorder.”

“These are the ONLY protein bars I will eat (and others made by PowerBar) for 2 reasons.” writes one five-star reviewer, “First NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS!!!! It is almost impossible to find protein bars these days that do not contain harmful ingredients like sucralose, stevia or HCFS. Second, it has a super high protein to calorie ration. (and they also taste great and fill you up)”
