Protein Bars & Shakes Q & A
What is Protein?
Protein is a naturally occurring nutrient that is essential for the body. Protein is made up of amino acids, which are what the body uses to grow new cells and mend itself.
Protein is found naturally in foods such as:
- Legumes, such as peanuts
- Dairy products
Protein is one of the most significant nutrients for a healthy body and effective weight loss. This is why Dr. G’s weight loss program incorporates his proprietary, scientifically formulated protein shakes and protein bars into your eating plan.
How Does Protein Benefit Weight Loss?
A healthy body and weight loss rely on a balanced amount of protein intake. Every healthy approach to weight loss must incorporate certain levels of protein, depending on your specific needs.
The benefits of healthy amounts of protein include:
- Decrease production of hormones that cause hunger
- Increase production of hormones that cause fullness
- Increased calorie metabolism during digestion
- A prolonged feeling of fullness
- Decreased craving and snacking
- Prevents muscle loss during weight loss
These benefits, and more, are the reason that it is important to incorporate high levels of protein into your weight loss eating plan.
How Do Protein Bars and Shakes Help with Weight Loss?
In addition to the benefits of increasing protein during weight loss, protein bars and shakes help to replace foods that are high in sugar or carbohydrates, which can hinder weight loss.
Protein bars and shakes are also easy ways to get more protein in your diet because they are easy to take with you. This ensures you won’t skip meals, and can always have quick access to what your body needs most.
As part of a physician-assisted weight loss diet, protein bars and shakes can replace some meals and supplement your other healthy food intake.
Who Should Use Protein Bars and Shakes?
Protein bars and shakes may not be the best for everyone. They are the most beneficial for those who are:
- Still growing and developing
- Eating a balanced, healthy diet
- Exercising regularly
- Recovering from injury or illness
When prescribed and overseen by a physician, protein bars and shakes can be an important asset to your effort to lose weight.
