Whey protein can curb appetite
You might have heard that whey protein, especially in the form of hydrolysate or isolate, is the best to promote lean muscle gains. However, it may be news to some of you that whey can be effectively used along with a fat loss programme – it can suppress appetite!
According to Dutch researchers, when whey protein is consumed in such a way that it forms 10 per cent of your total calories, it suppresses appetite better than casein or soya protein. But, at higher levels, whey leads to an increase in insulin release. This can lower blood sugar and promote hunger!
Those who are trying to burn fat can restrict their carbohydrates, fats and total calories and get 10 per cent of their total calories from top-class whey protein. Ensure that your diet plan is perfect with just the right amount of carbs, calories, protein and branched chain amino acids.
Train hard and do enough amount of cardiovascular training. You will be pleased with the results.
