In today's world it is almost too easy to gain weight beyond our healthy set point. Instead of having to go out of the way to find food like our ancestors did, we have to go out of our way to seek health and ways to manage our body weight.
One of the easiest ways to control your body weight is to move more and swap out high carb, high fat foods with leaner protein options. Protein is incredibly helpful for weight management as it has a high thermic effect on our bodies and keeps us full for longer. It also has only 4 calories per gram making it easy to help us control our caloric intake.
Whey protein is a particularly great option for weight loss as you get loads of protein without excess carbs and fat which adds in unnecessary calories. Research has shown that weight loss diets that incorporate whey protein isolate result in more fat loss, weight loss and preserve lean muscle mass. Whey protein also has a high leucine content which is an important amino acid in the metabolic process of building muscle. Having more muscle mass on your body also contributes to an overall leaner body due to the high metabolic needs of muscle mass.
Incorporating more protein into your diet not only will keep you satiated for longer with less calories but it will also help you build lean muscle and lose body fat!
