Protein Is Key To Losing Fat : The Multi- talented Protein Shake

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

We’ve written about it before, how protein powders can be used as a useful addition to your fat loss goals, but many top nutrition experts are now insisting that their clients utilise this fat burning nutritional component too! Protein is essential to lean mass, the higher the ratio of lean muscle compared to fat mass, the less fat you will be and look. Well, protein shakes deliver essential amino acids to support the recovery and development of muscle (not in a bulky sense…don’t panic) and definition/ toning. Consuming a whey protein will satiate you (fill you up) making for a perfect mid- morning snack helping you to not pick at unhealthy foods over the day. Whey protein also encourages muscle to recover and grow when combined with exercise, so ensuring you consume a low calorie, high protein shake will increase muscle, thus increasing the thermic effect (raised metabolism) of food, and therefore maximise fat burning.
If you’re not already, then start to include a whey protein such as Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey, PhD Nutrition Pharma Whey Ht+, or Optimum Health Ultimate Whey Protein for best results.
