Shake it Up With Protein

You are on an epic journey. This weight loss adventure is an experience that requires you to be fully prepared and all in. Don’t set out on the quest of a lifetime without the essential elements for success.  What to pack for the trip? Naturally, you’ll need tons of determination and guts along with some fresh fruits and veggies. But there’s a secret weapon you simply don’t want to leave behind…don’t forget to pack plenty of protein!  A protein shake isn’t a magic bullet but it is a powerful and effective weapon to have in your arsenal when you are staring into the abyss of obesity.

How protein helps you in the heat of the battle…

1) Protein Beats Back Hunger – By slowing down digestion, protein helps you feel full longer, making you less vulnerable to hunger attacks. Use this weapon regularly and watch the calories and weight begin to fall dead at your feet.

2) Protein Curbs Carb Crashes – Sugar highs that crash onto a sugar low sabotage your healthy eating strategy. Using the weapon of protein alongside carbohydrate-rich foods will slow down the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream. That can help keep your blood sugar from acting like a long-range missile attack against your appetite.

3) Protein Fuels the Fire – Protein has a higher TEF (“thermic effect of food” or the energy we use to digest food into small, absorbable components) compared to carbs and fat. That means you actually burn more calories to process protein than carbs or fat. Burn baby, burn!

4) Preserves Power – Your body can’t effectively burn and use fat as energy if it doesn’t have help from either carbohydrates or protein. When you’re losing weight, you lose both muscle and fat that’s why it is so important to continue eating enough protein. When you eat protein it fuels fat burning and preserves calorie-burning lean muscle.

5) Protein Grows Your Guns – Your need for protein increases after intense exercise. That’s why increasing your protein intake on days that you exercise is beneficial. When you strength train, have a high protein snack right after a training session. That’s when your muscles are sensitive to nutrients they can use to repair and grow.

Keep in mind that eating more protein alone won’t necessarily help you shed excess weight in a healthy way. Eating excessive amounts of protein can lead to weight gain just like eating excess carbs or fat. That’s why we offer a great meal replacement protein shake at LetsLose which offers a well balanced approach to keeping your protein intake at optimum levels.

Why Probiotics?

Wondering why we added probiotics in our protein powder? Not only are they good for your body, with the ability to balance the friendly bacteria in your digestive system, support immune function & nutrient absorption, but they also support healthy weight management, reduce fatigue and help maintain blood sugar levels (that are already in a healthy range).

But the #1 reason we have added this unique probiotic blend into our protein powder is to help our patients lose belly fat. Oh, that dreaded word… There are a lot of great studies that show the link between probiotics and the reduction of subcutaneous belly fat.
