Supplementation of Proteins and Weight Loss

Aug 26, 2008
It is widely known that supplementation of whey proteins will speed up your weight loss. However, there is a misconception in the mainstream thinking that only body builders should take additional proteins.

The truth is they do supplement their diets with whey proteins but they take way higher amounts of it then the amounts which are suggested for weight loss.

It has been scientifically proven that when a person who is on weight loss regimen starts supplementing their diet with proteins, they will notice up to 20% faster weight loss.

Every person is different and this is why it is suggested you try consuming a higher rate of protein and note any changes. If you see it's working for you then keep on using supplements but if it's not helping you then test a few other variations like consuming more or at different intervals and if it fails you even after all that then simply stop using them.

It's a matter of common sense because some people have protein rich diets and they don't need to supplement their diets, while other have diets mainly high in carbohydrates. As you might have noticed this is not exact science. Sure, it can be proven how some kind of supplement benefits the average person but at the end you have to test it out for yourself.

Aside from different diets we also have different metabolisms that influence how we digest foods. At the same time, it depends how you exercise because that will affect your protein consumption as well.

There are many types of protein supplements on the market today. I remember when they were really disgusting and they didn't blend well with water which made them a true struggle to drink. But now they blend really well and most have such a good taste you will probably drink one or two just because you enjoy the taste of them.

Typically it's suggested to consume about 1-1,5g proteins per pound of your body weight on training days. The number may vary and again, it's suggested you find that sweet spot for yourself by testing and trying out different combinations. Research has shown it's smart to take 30g of protein pre-training and 30g post training to maximize your weight loss and muscle growth. This is because your body needs proteins during and after intense training to start repairing your muscles.

As you might have already noticed this is really basic information about proteins and you should definitely look more into it if you are interested in this topic and if you want to be as successful at weight loss as possible. One thing I think it's really important to keep in mind is that protein supplementation is not a magic pill some people like make it to look like. It's merely a tool you can use to speed up your weight loss if you are smart about it and if you have the right attitude to back it up.
