A 12-week study with 70 overweight and obese men and women found that supplementing the diet with whey protein1 significantly improved various parameters of metabolic health.
This means that whey protein can help create a metabolic environment that is more conducive to weight loss. If a person cuts back on their dietary excess and consistently exercises then whey protein will be a great friend in helping to get somewhere.
When triglycerides are lowered it means that insulin resistance and leptin resistance have improved, which also helps curb undesired food cravings. When LDL cholesterol is also lowered it means that liver metabolism is now working better, as well as cardiovascular health.
Whey protein is a natural superfood that makes a fast and easy smoothie breakfast for the active person on the go. Don’t leave home (or the dorm) without it!
