Whey Protein For Body Weight Management
Consumption of whey protein (but NOT soy protein) may improve your body weight without restricting calories and without exercising!
Scientists from the US Department of Agriculture recruited 73 overweight adults and randomly had them consume two 200 calorie beverages a day consisting of 28 grams of whey protein or of soy protein plus carbohydrate or carbohydrate alone per serving for 23 weeks. No other changes were made to diet or exercise. At the end of the study the whey protein group’s body weight was approximately 4 pounds lower and their body fat was 5 pounds less than the other groups!
In addition, a one-inch reduction in waist size was reported in the whey group compared to the carbohydrate and soy protein groups.
The study, funded by USDA and the US Whey Protein Research Consortium found the consumption of the whey protein was associated with a reduction in the levels of a hormone called “ghrelin” which is reported to serve as a hunger signal and may boost food intake.
“… habitual consumption of supplemental protein may result in improved body composition and incremental, but ultimately significant, weight loss. These data suggest that supplemental dietary protein may reduce the risk of unhealthy weight gain observed in many populations,” wrote the USDA researchers.
The researchers went on to say “Short-term weight loss requires energy restriction (fewer calories) and higher protein diets may assist in this acute weight reduction; however, protein supplementation, particularly whey protein, in overweight and obese individuals may assist in long-term maintenance of body weight without energy restriction.”(1)
