Who exactly would whey protein be suitable for?

Supplements containing whey protein, of the kind which are stocked by most of the major retail outlets specialising in health and fitness products – such as Holland & Barrett – are perfectly acceptable to be taken by virtually anyone. These supplements which sometimes take the form of a cereal bar, but most often a milkshake drink, work by boosting the protein levels in the body. Many people will not consider whey protein supplements to be essential to their health and wellbeing, because the majority of us get the amount of protein we need from foods such as eggs and fish that we consume as part of our diet. However there are some people for whom such supplements can prove to be particularly suitable. 

One of these groups is those who are trying to lose weight. The proteins contained in whey protein products can assist in weight loss regimens in a couple of ways. The first of these is by suppressing the appetite, thus ensuring that consuming a whey protein shake or bar will greatly reduce the desire to snack on less healthy alternatives. The other is by making the metabolism work harder to burn of the proteins – which require more calories to burn them off than carbohydrates or fats do. 

However the single group which has most often found whey protein products to be suitable for their needs is those engaged in athletics or body building. This is because the protein contained in them can assist the body in building muscle mass and body strength, by helping the growth of new muscle tissues during the repair period following the stretching and tearing of muscle tissue which occurs as a result of physical exertion. Thus it is best if whey protein can be consumed straight after such exercise, when the muscle tissue is still in the process of repairing itself, because this is when growth can occur most effectively. Whey protein products of the kind sold by outlets such as Holland & Barrett are a suitable way of accomplishing this.

we surely need protein and it can be found in meats, cheeses, peanut butter and etc... Since i had bad experience in taking diet pills, i'm scared now to try even other products.

Nice article. Correct, there is no such thing as easy or quick way to lose weight. You have to work hard, sacrifice, and lots of discipline.

Cheers,

I agree that good protein really helps people who want to lose weight. By eating complex carbohydrates food with a good amount of protein, makes one feel full until the right meal time.

Thanks for the visit ha!

Whey protein supports development of lean muscles and muscles recovery. I'm a perfect evidence for whey supporting weight (or rather fat) loss. What is also important, whey protein is really safe and even people with lactose intolerance can find a supplement they can take safely (whey isolate type). Thanks for a good tips.
