Why Protein is Key for Reaching Weight Loss Goals

Why Protein is Key for Reaching Weight Loss Goals

Are you looking for the key nutrient for weight loss? Read on to learn about the importance of protein.

Protein plays a critical role in fueling our bodies with the proper nutrients needed to reach your goals. It has a direct impact on weight loss due to its positive effect on satiety, metabolism, and lean body mass.

Feel Satisfied and Save Calories. Protein helps fill you up, so you don’t consume as many calories. High protein diets keep you fuller longer because protein is digested slower than other nutrients. This means that you are less likely to get hungry and crave unhealthy foods after the consumption of protein leading to fewer calories consumed. This leads to weight loss or maintenance since your portions and cravings will be under control. Since protein aids in eating less subsequent meals, it also increases the likelihood that you will stick with your diet plan because you feel full and satisfied after your protein-powered meals. OWYN’s Protein Shakes are a perfect snack to help boost your protein intake!

Increase Metabolism. Boosting protein intake leads to an increased metabolism, which helps to burn calories throughout the day and aid in the weight loss process. After a meal or snack, some calories are used to digest and metabolize food. This is called the thermic effect of food. Protein has a higher thermic effect than carbs and fat meaning you burn more calories to process protein than the other nutrients

Prevent Muscle Loss. A high protein diet can help prevent muscle loss while you’re trying to lose weight. When you lose weight, muscle mass may also be reduced, which most people don’t want. Eating protein and adding in strength training can help prevent muscle loss and achieve the weight loss results you desire. 

An easy way to incorporate protein is through OWYN’s Meal Replacement Shakes. If you’re running late in the morning and simply don't have time to whip up a protein-packed breakfast, you can just swap breakfast for a shake so that you're not missing out on protein intake in the beginning of the day. The protein-richness of this meal replacement shake will help to avoid mindless snacking and prevent cravings.
