Protein plays a couple of major roles in weight loss. First, your body burns more calories metabolizing proteins than it does processing carbs or fat. Second, protein helps you build and maintain muscle tissue.
Since muscle tissue burns more calories than body fat (even when you’re just sitting around), building and maintaining muscle is key for weight loss. Most of us don’t consume enough protein from our daily diet to get the true weight loss benefits, which is why a protein powder can provide an added boost.
*Remember that a good protein powder will contain less than 3g of carbs and sugar per serving and should provide 20-30g of protein per serving.
We recommend ISO 100 Hydrolyzed 100% Whey Protein Isolate by Dymatize. It tastes better than any other protein powders that we’ve tried, and a big tub will last you a long time. The vanilla is also good.
If you need a vegan or vegetarian option, we recommend Vega Sport Performance Protein Powder, Chocolate. Low carb vegan protein powders are harder to find because vegan protein powders are often made from high carb foods such as brown rice and peas.
