So you’ve made several changes to your diet and are still unable to get the stubborn flab off for good? Perhaps, it is time you consider getting the champion on your side- protein supplement.
What is whey protein?
To start with and to clear away any misconception about Whey- it is by-product of cheese production and a milk protein like casein, however it accounts for only 20% of the total milk contents; Unlike the wrong impression that some people have, Whey is a milk protein and NOT a brand!
There are 3 different types of Whey protein that are well known in the nutrition market:
- Whey concentrate: Which generally consists of fat and lactose up to 30-90% (varies from product to product.)
- Whey Isolate: Contains very little amount of fat and microfiltered protein which means almost 90% protein content.
- Whey Hydrolysate: It is a more expensive and put under serious amount of filtration to give pure whey protein. Since it is pre-digested and partially broken down for easier and faster absorption, it is mostly used in clinical set-ups.
As per PDCAAS or Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score- a global measure to account a protein’s digestibility and quality- whey has the highest score of 1. It also contains a complete amino acid profile with higher BCAAs which makes it a good quality class-1 protein.
How does it help with fat loss?
- It increases your satiety level: Having a good quality protein like whey makes you feel less hungry, improves and increases your satiety level and also contains Cholesystokinin (CCK) stimulating peptide glycomacropeptide that controls your satiety.
- It is rich in Leucine- one of the essential amino acids, plays important part in protein synthesis and facilitates fat breakdown.
- Increases your energy levels, improves metabolism while helping your bring down your fat%.
Other things you can do to keep up with the fat loss:
- Maintain a food log/ journal to help you remember all that you eat, when you eat- in case you are an emotional eater. As per studies, people who maintain a record of what they eat tend to change their lifestyles for healthy eating and lose weight better.
- Get in wholesome foods in your diet, take help from a professional Dietitian to educate yourself about eating right and planning a healthy meal plan.
- Workout- most importantly. No amount of restrictive or moderated eating will help you if you do not workout regularly. Be consistent, patient and optimistic about reaching your goal.
How you balance out your intake of fats and carbs is ultimately up to you. But keep your protein levels up, and you’ll feel fuller, train better, and have more satisfying overall results!
