About Lean Protein Powder for Weight Loss

Lean Protein Powder is typically made frrom a range of protein sources, such as fast-absorbing whey protein isolates and sustained-release proteins like milk protein isolate or egg white protein powder. These products contain all nine essential amino acids required for human health and to support recovery from exercise, whether it be a light jog on the beach or a strenuous two-hour weight lifting session.

Alternatively, shakes based on lean protein powder may be taken as a snack throughout the day, especially when craving high calorie food, or as a meal replacement. Low-calorie protein shakes are also a helpful supplement for use during weight loss programs, as they help reduce rebound weight gain once the program is finished. This was reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2014. However, it is important to remember the importance of consuming whole foods, and not relying solely on protein shakes or any kind of powdered formulation for your nutritional needs. 

Though most still regards lean protein powders as muscle-building formulations, the fact remains that they deliver an easily digestible form all of the essential amino acids in abundance, and without many of the calories found in protein food. This makes them particularly helpful when trying to reduce bodyfat-weight, yet not drop muscle-weight. This is actually an important determinant of the success of any weight-loss program, as we need muscle mass to keep the metabolism healthy and as a marker for general health.


Muscle not only helps us move around easily, especially in older age when coordination and balance can be impaired, but also as a reservoir of essential amino acids (EAAs). When our blood EAA levels drop, such as between meals and when sleeping, muscle tissue releases these important nutrients into our blood to support the health of organs, bones, soft tissues and as crucial precursors to other metabolites. A quality protein powder helps to ensure that muscle tissue is not sacrificed in attaining your body composition goals. 


Weight loss protein powders also have fat burners or thermogenics added to assist in the management of fat loss. Some commonly used metabolic enhancers are acetyl L-Carnitine, Garcinia cambogia and Green Tea. Caffeine is one of the most tried and tested fat burners available, and is found in some of the products listed on this page. This is simply because all stimulants increase metabolic activity, and therefore increase the amount of calories burned. Other compounds like epigallocatechin-3-0-gallate (EGCG) found in green tea and chlorogenic acids found in green coffee, have fat burning effects without having stimulant properties, and can come in decaffeinated varieties. 


Weight loss protein powders may be used for fat stripping programs as well, where that last bit of body fat needs to be removed in order to expose the abdominal muscles and muscle striations. Sportys Health has plenty of reading material on weight loss and protein powders, if you're still a little unsure. To increase the satiating effects of these shakes, try adding a teaspoon of slippery elm powder to boost up the fibre content, which should increase the amount of time it takes you to start looking for something else to eat.
