There is much written on the internet about whey protein and the different types available and the different ways to use it. I wanted to clarify in my mind some things about the whey protein that I’m currently using in my nutritional cleansing program.
Whey protein has an ability to increse fat loss and prevent age-related muscle decline.
It can be used as a meal replacement, or as a supplement to your diet, all depends on what your goals are. As a meal replacement, you need to ensure that there is also a balance of carbohydrates, fats, fibre, enzymes and vitamins & minerals in the product. As a supplement to your diet, the requirement for carbohydrates and fats is reduced considerably as you’re getting these from your diet (well, you should be).
Having some milk protein concentrate in the mix provides a sustained release of proteing, to inhibit muscle breakdown and help you stay fuller for longer, so less of the hungry feelings
Undenatured whey proteing is the protein that is considered optimal for getting rid of fat and building lean muscle tissue.
How else do you avoid the energy crashes? Make sure the mix also contains low-glycemic carbohydrates and fibre & fats.
Whey protein comes in many different grades, makes sure the whey protein you are using is from happy grass eating cows and that the protein is processed to have as much as possible undenatured.
I’m really enjoying using my whey protein as a meal replacement at the moment. It’s only accounting for 2 of my meals, but there is no energy crash, limited hunger pangs (usually put off by having water or nibbling on a green-tea infused chocolate – yum!). As a result, I’m dropping some of the dreaded fats, not having energy crashes, especially after a workout, and I’m feeling satiated, happy and motivated.
If you want to feel this way too, please contact me.
