Whey Protein and Weight Loss
A good healthy and nutritional diet and regular exercise is the best way to lose weight and maintain a good weight. By including whey protein in your diet you can lose weight a little faster and this is because your body will work harder to burn off the calories when you eat protein based meals than with other foods. Because your body is working harder it is using more energy and burning more calories. Whey protein also contains bioactive components that release appetite suppressing hormones such as glucagon-like-peptide-1 and cholecystokinin.
If you take a whey protein shake during the day between your meals, your appetite is reduced by the release of these hormones and you are likely to snack less throughout the day. Snacking between meals is a huge reason why many people put on weight, so to stop or reduce that snacking will go a long way to helping with weight loss.
Whey protein delays the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream and as a result delays the release of insulin which allows the body to burn off more fat.
Muscle Gain and Nutritional Supplements
Some people will use protein shakes for weight loss and also fill up on many other supplements to get the nutrition that they are missing from eating other healthy foods. It is best to combine a protein drink with a regular healthy diet for the best results. Also a good quality whey protein powder will contain all the necessary vitamins and minerals so that you don’t need to be taking extra supplements.
When losing weight many people will take on a new form of exercise and aim to tone up their body as well as lose weight. To help build up and tone muscle protein shakes contain branched chain amino acides to repair and rebuild lean muscle tissue. Whey protein also has large amounts of leucine amino acide which helps to prevent loss of lean muscle tissue.
