WHICH IS BETTER FOR WEIGHT LOSS WHEY PROTEIN OR
PLANT
PROTEIN?
Whey Proteim
What is Whey Protein?
Some people say that plant protein is the best
option for weight loss and are quick to dismiss
whey protein. Others believe that whey protein
is better because it contains a high percentage
of leucine, which has been shown to increase
muscle mass at the same time as stimulating fat
burning. Let's look at the scientific literature
to find out what's true! Benefits of Whey
protein is a very popular muscle- building
supplement. One reason for this it's high content
of leucine which has been shown to increase
muscle mass and reduce fat at the same time.
IS WHEY PROTEIN REALLY BETTER FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
BOTH WHEY PROTEIN AND CASEIN PROTEIN HAVE BEEN
FOUND TO INCREASE FAT BURNING AT THE SAME TIME
AS INCREASING MUSCLE MASS. WHEY PROTEIN IS
SUPPOSED TO CONTAIN A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF THE
AMINO ACID LEUCINE THAN OTHER PROTEINS, SINCE IT
IS A CONCENTRATE OF THE PROTEIN CONTENT FROM
COW'S MILK. THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE AN
EXCELLENT WEIGHT LOSS SUPPLEMENT. CASEIN PROTEIN
IS ACTUALLY A LESS POPULAR FORM OF PROTEIN, BUT
IT IS STILL BEING USED AS PART OF A WEIGHT LOSS
THERAPY. THE PROTEIN IS FOUND IN THE SAME FORM AS
CASEIN TEETH AND IS THE REASON WHY IT IS SO
EFFECTIVE.

WHAT ARE BENEFITS OF WHEY PROTEIN?
HOW DOES PLANT PROTEIN COMPARE TO WHEY
PROTEIN?
Vegan protein powders are made from different
sources. The most common sources are rice, corn
and soy proteins. These plant proteins
What are the best whey protein products? Whey
Protein is a fast absorbing, highly
bioavailable protein that can be consumed on its
own, or combined with carbohydrate or
other supplements. It is a great choice for
protein and amino acid enhancement as well as
muscle repair and recovery after heavy exercise.
Benefits of Whey protein has a high biological
value. It helps to maximize the uptake of
amino acids into muscle cells and promotes
recovery after heavy exercise. Whey protein is
ideal for building lean muscle mass and for
burning fat. It can be purchased as either a
powder (such as the best protein shakes ) or in
a hydrolysed (WPC) form which is easier to mix
with other ingredients.
have a lower lysine index, so they are easier to
digest. Comparing the two in terms of how much
protein is found per serving size, animal
proteins have an average of 22 grams per 100
calories. Vegetable proteins, on the other
hand, average about 20 grams per 100 calories. A
lot of people claim that they could not possibly
eat as much protein if they were not vegetarians
because they would have to eat so many more
calories.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONSUME PLANT PROTEIN?
IT'S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND WHY YOU'RE TAKING
IT, OTHERWISE YOU MAY BE WASTING YOUR MONEY.
MANY PEOPLE WHO CONSUME PLANT PROTEIN THROUGH
SHAKES OR SMOOTHIES WILL FIND IT HARDER TO DRINK
AS MUCH WATER THAN WHEN TAKING WHEY PROTEIN. TO
CALCULATE HOW MUCH WATER YOU SHOULD BE DRINKING,
MULTIPLY YOUR WEIGHT BY. THIS IS A VERY BASIC
WAY OF CALCULATING THE AMOUNT OF WATER YOU NEED
EACH DAY. SO PERHAPS INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF
PROTEIN IN YOUR DIET IS NOT ACTUALLY THE ANSWER.
DO I NEED SUPPLEMEN TS WHEN I USE A PLANT
PROTEIN POWDER?
THE BODY CANNOT USE WHEY PROTEIN ALONE, WHILE
PLANT PROTEINS CAN BE USED AS A COMPLETE
PROTEIN. WHEY PROTEIN IS NOT JUST USED BY THE
MUSCLES BUT ALSO BY THE KIDNEYS AND LIVER TO
BREAK DOWN FATS. PLANT PROTEINS ARE ABUNDANT IN
FIBER AND MAY REDUCE CHOLESTEROL LEVELS. PLANT
PROTEIN CAN ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO THE HEALTH OF THE
HEART AND THE SKIN.

WHEN I USE A PLANT PROTEIN POWDER, DO I STILL
NEED TO DRINK A LOT OF WATER? THE PROTEINS IN
PLANT PROTEIN POWDERS ARE NOT AS DIGESTIBLE AS
THE ONES FOUND IN ANIMAL-BASED PRODUCTS, BUT IT
WILL STILL PROVIDE YOU WITH ENERGY. IT MAY BE A
LITTLE MORE CHALLENGING FOR SOME TO DRINK ENOUGH
WATER, AS IT IS NOT A LIQUID SUBSTANCE LIKE
WATER. THE BODY WILL STILL NEED TO WORK TO
DIGEST THE PLANT PROTEIN POWDER. DRINKING WATER
HELPS THE STOMACH FEEL FULL, WHICH FIGHTS HUNGER
AND CRAVINGS, A BETTER-BALANCED METABOLISM, AND
HELPS WITH WEIGHT LOSS. I AM LACTOSE INTOLERANT
HOW DO I GET THE NUTRIENTS FROM A PLANT PROTEIN
WITHOUT TAKING DAIRY PRODUCTS? IF YOU ARE LACTOSE
INTOLERANT, IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO TAKE PLANT
PROTEIN POWDER WITHOUT ALSO ADDING THESE
NUTRITIOUS DAIRY INGREDIENTS. THE PROTEINS IN
DAIRY PRODUCTS ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE PROTEINS
IN PLANT PROTEIN POWDERS.
CONCLUSION
BOTH PLANT PROTEIN AND WHEY PROTEIN ARE
BENEFICIAL TO WEIGHT LOSS. BOTH ALSO HAVE THEIR
OWN SPECIFIC BENEFITS, SO CHOOSE WHAT YOU LIKE
BEST!
