We already know just how important protein is in our diets, and for our bodies. However, protein can work to effectively encourage significant weight loss and aid to keep those hunger cravings at bay. With so many options on the market, the Doc is focusing on just how whey protein can support your weight loss goals.
What is Whey?
Whey protein is a milk protein that is a by-product of the cheese making process; whereby left-over liquid is processed to form the whey protein powder we know and love. It is considered a convenient alternative (or addition) to a balanced diet as it is a complete protein. That is, it contains all 9 essential amino acids and has a very low lactose content.
Whey Up the Benefits
Research has shown that a high protein intake can effectively help you lose weight, sustain lean muscle while improving your body composition and metabolic health. In particular, higher-protein diets have been proven a successful strategy against obesity, and have also shown to lower blood glucose levels in those with type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance.
Protein can work effectively to regulate your appetite, support lean muscle and encourage significant weight loss. We’d recommend that you check in with one of our Doctors to discuss what protein intake is appropriate for you. Using a quality protein powder can help you reach your protein requirements in an easy and convenient way.
Lose the Whey-t
Protein can aid satiety and works wonders to help make you full fuller for longer.
Protein shakes, like The Doc's Whey Protein Isolate is only 100 calories a serve and has a high concentration of protein, with a low amount of fat and carbohydrates. It’s the perfect way to help you get through your cravings in the mid morning or mid afternoon.
Good quality protein takes time to prepare and is often neglected in the diet. The Doc’s Whey Protein Isolate is a popular choice of protein for those looking to maintain low levels of body fat but who still require the protein to maintain muscle which is an important part of fat loss.
