Everyone knows bodybuilders are obsessed with their bodies. What they are trying to do is to lose maximum fat to show off their fantastic muscles. While I am not suggesting you to become a bodybuilder (unless you want to), you could borrow some tricks from these body image-obsessed folks to lose weight quicker and easier.
One of their favorite products is whey protein. Although it may sound scary, it’s nothing more than one of the two types of protein contained in milk. When milk is is turned into cheese, whey protein is a by-product. This by-product is the best source of purest protein available. To make it even more attractive, whey protein is digested very quickly and, when taken in supplemental form, is very low in calories. This means that whey protein can be used faster than other forms of nutrition and, if consumed right after weight-bearing exercise, it will go straight to your muscles.
According to one study people taking whey protein supplements lost three pounds more body fat than those who didn’t. This means that you too can take advantage of this ability of whey protein to change your body composition. Incorporate weight lifting exercises into your workout routine and take whey protein within thirty minutes of exercise.
Do not worry about getting huge and bulky muscles – it doesn’t come that easy. What you will get is stronger healthier well-defined body. As an additional bonus, whey protein also works as an antioxidant. Some studies have shown that regular consumption of whey protein promotes a strong immune system.
Unless you are allergic to diary products or need to restrict diary products for medical reasons, there is no reason for you not to take whey protein. The information on proper dosage is not yet available, but taking one gram of whey protein per kilogram (two pounds) of body weight for each serving seems to be the right way to go. There is no side effects documented, unless of course you are allergic to diary, in which case you should consult with a physician first.
