If you’ve ever thought about supplementing with a whey protein, you’ll want to read this…

Especially if you’re currently supplementing with whey and want to know why, when, and how to maximize the benefits of whey protein…

From physique, fitness, fat loss, or sports performance goals, whether someone should use a whey protein powder supplement is a question I get a lot…

Everyone’s different, but what’s the right answer for YOU?

It depends…

Of course it does, right?

If you get uncontrollable, undeniable, explosive gas after drinking a whey protein shake…

You’re probably in the No Whey camp…

Or, that doesn’t bother you so much…

And you’re crop dusting the hell out of your house, the gym, friends, and family…

Oh The Humanity!

Regardless if you’re pumping out gas like Exxon Mobile

Here are some of the benefits to supplementing with whey protein…

  • Appetite suppressant and improved satiety (feeling full)
  • Packed with Anti-oxidants and promotes Glutathione (longevity and overall health)
  • Supports lean muscle and prevents muscle breakdown (great for ABSolutely Leanness)
  • Improves insulin sensitivity in diabetics and pre-diabetics

So why isn’t whey protein a staple in everyone’s daily routine?

Well, there’s that crop dusting problem I mentioned earlier…

Some think they’ll start looking like a body builder

Others think it’s not effective for anything

And most people just don’t understand how to harness all the benefits of whey protein…

Until now!

That’s why my recommendations for whey supplementation, and protein powders or drinks in general, are very specific…

Because it’s really easy to mess all that goodness up! It’s like diet soda…

Many drink diet soda with good intentions, but they have no clue they’re mucking their fat loss up seriously

Whey Protein & Weight Loss

There are troves of studies that support whey to be an effective supplement for supporting fat loss.

Actually, I haven’t read 1 study showing whey protein had a negative impact on body mass or composition. In fact, it’s quite the opposite…

Nearly every whey protein study I’ve read on individuals who aren’t athletes falls into two categories…

In the first category, 1 group just eats their regular diet, while the comparison group does the same thing, except they add in a whey protein supplement. Studies typically last 4 to 16 weeks and comparisons are made using before and after results between groups.

The second category is just like above, except a 3rd placebo group is added to the mix. 1 regular diet group, 1 regular diet plus whey protein group, and 1 regular diet plus placebo protein group. Again, before and after comparisons are made at the end of the study.

The groups taking the whey protein supplement always come out on top in key performance indicators…

Body Mass Index (BMI), fat loss, and lean body mass results.

Many Americans are overweight, obese or morbidly obese. As of 2013, the US is the #2 overweight/obese country in the world behind Mexico.

Why? Because Mexican food is delicious

It’s just sooo good… Once it hits your lips…

I’ve got recipes for good, healthy Mexican food though…

Why do I bring up U.S. girthiness?

2 Reasons

First, many, if not most participants in these whey protein studies are overweight or obese. Meaning that just by adding a quality whey protein shake at the right time is a quick and easy way to lose weight.

Second, it’s a great transition for the other relative research on whey protein.

Spoiler Alert!

It also backs whey protein as a powerhouse for overall health and weight loss…

Science talk for a bit…

Not too long ago, scientists discovered that consuming whey protein and glucose together mutes the blood sugar response over consuming glucose alone.

What the hell does that mean?

That means whey protein is a huge WIN for diabetics and diabetes research because whey protein helps you better manage your blood sugar response from food!

Plus, whey protein minimizes the typical amount of fat gain expected from eating a Standard American Diet.

That’s a SAD diet…

But on a happier note, supplementing with whey protein helps diabetics lower the need for insulin, supports a healthier body composition, improves cardiovascular health, and reduces the likelihood of developing other diabetes related health conditions.

Hell YES WHEY!

That knowledge bomb is fat loss power!

What’s Next?

I hope this post has you now saying Yes Whey!

If you’re not yet convinced adding whey protein to your repertoire is a super effective and easy way to improve health and lose weight faster…

I don’t know what your malfunction is…

If you’re wondering what protein I use personally… You’re a wise cookie…

Like everything else in life, all protein powders aren’t created equal. If you’re shopping locally to purchase protein…

Not only are you overpaying, but 9 times out of 10, you’re overpaying for crap!

Amazon.com is what I use for most of my supplements, but True Nutrition is where I go for protein

TrueNutrition.com sells other supplements, but I don’t buy those. I buy their proteins. You won’t find an equal or higher quality protein for cheaper. If you ever do though, please let me know!

Anyway, go over to TrueNutrition.com and throw in code TRG244 upon checkout to take an additional 5% off your order!

5% doesn’t sound like much, and it isn’t, but their prices are already incredibly low. I’ve been purchasing proteins from them for years and the biggest discount I’ve seen them put out is 10%

This coupon code doesn’t expire, so you can use it over and over again. I am a partner with True Nutrition, so I will receive a small commission if you decide to use it.

In   No Whey… Yes Whey! Part II, I’m giving you the deets on how to harness the powers of whey protein to maximize fat loss and shed the most weight possible

Who do you know that wants to lose weight, is diabetic, or curious about whey protein?

Do them a favor and share this! The buttons are right there…
