Why Whey?

A meta-study of published research from 1970-2012 revealed that diets supplemented with whey protein powder reduce obesity while maintaining lean mass. This, in turn, increases thermogenesis in the body - so you burn more calories! 

 

Furthermore, whey protein powder and its bioactive constituents were found to offer greater benefits when compared to egg, soy or casein proteins.

  • Boosts the Immune System
  • Improves Heart Health
  • Promotes Healthy Insulin Secretion
  • Promotes Rapid Healing
  • Improves Brain Function
  • Builds Stronger Bones and Muscles
  • Improves Effectiveness of Exercise
  • Lowers (bad) Cholesterol
  • Reduces High Blood Pressure
  • Helps Prevent & Manage Diabetes 

 

Don’t worry about counting calories and fats right now. You want to concentrate on getting in enough protein and fiber and keeping your net carbs under 20 grams (Check out the Understanding Nutrition Labels for more on this.)

Research has shown that eating 1 gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight results in greater fat loss, increased fullness and can even help increase your metabolism. Studies show adding protein can burn as much as 1 hour of cardio would!

If your ideal weight is 160 lbs, then you should aim for a minimum of 160 grams of protein per day .
