Maybe you think that whey protein shakes are only for muscle heads who want to build serious muscle. But if you are not using whey protein shakes around workouts and between meals, you may be missing out on an unexpected benefice of Whey – Fat loss.
Australian researchers gave test subjects one of four protein meals – Whey protein shake, turkey breast, tuna fish or egg white protein. Four hours after consuming the protein, they were given a buffet-style meal where they were allowed to eat as much as they wanted. The subjects who drank the Whey protein shake were less hungry and ate far less the buffet meal than those who consumed other types of proteins. So drinking Whey protein shakes between meals or as meal replacements can help you keep calories low when dieting to burn more body fat.
To lose more fat and build more muscle, drink about 20 grams of Whey protein within 30 minutes before workouts. Also consider drinking 20 grams of Whey protein as snacks between meals or even as meal replacements throughout the day.
