Protein Supplements for Women's Weight Loss


While many women’s supplement arsenal consists of only a multi-vitamin, protein supplements have been becoming increasingly popular amongst young and old women alike. If weight loss is a concern, there are a variety of protein supplements that focus specifically on losing weight. A better portion of these protein supplements contain very little fat or additives.

Consider the following on why you should use protein supplements for weight loss:

Convenience.
Protein supplements are extremely easy to prepare and digest. Many times they can take place of a snack or even a meal – simply throw in your protein powder along with water (or milk) into a shaker up, do a few shakes, and your protein is ready! Best of all, protein powder comes in a variety of flavours depending on the brand you take such as chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.


Affordability.
A 5lb tub of whey protein costs about $40. While that may seem expensive, keep in mind that there are about 60 servings in a 5lb tub of whey protein. That works outs to less than $1 per serving, which is extremely affordable.


Effectiveness.Protein boosts your metabolism, which is the rate in which your body burns and uses food as energy. The faster your metabolism works, the less food your body will be able to store as fat.


Protein also promotes lean muscle growth. This doesn’t mean you’ll start building huge muscles like a bodybuilder, what it means though is that your muscles will begin to take shape and you’ll see an outline of where they are – no more flabby arms!


When you are in the gym working on your trimming down your figure, you should keep in mind that whey protein contains a high amount of glutamine and BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) – the building blocks of muscles. Taking whey protein increases your muscle mass, lowers the time it takes to recovery from exercise, and boosts your stamina!


So next time you're thinking about trying a weight loss pill, consider trying protein supplements instead!

  3. Is your body making the most of all the protein you’re consuming?

    Let’s face it: No protein, no growth.

    And we’ve all been bombarded with the latest trends in protein powders, weight gainers, lean gainers, combined protein, plant protein, whey, and egg etc……and the list goes on and on.

    But one of the harsh realities I’ve learned from peak performance expert Wade Lightheart is this:

    Most of the protein individuals consume ends up in one of two places.

    One is your toilet bowl.

    And the second place is in a nice layer of sludge somewhere in your digestive tract.

    And that all adds up to one GIANT-SIZED WASTE OF MONEY AND EFFORT from all the food you’re eating — especially if you’re taking protein supplements.

    You’re absorbing and using only a tiny fraction of the nutrients you’re taking in.

    Enzymes digest your food, stimulate your brain, provide cellular energy, and repair all the cells, tissues and organs of your body.

    Enzymes are the sparks that make everything happen.

    AND HERE’S THE BAD NEWS: Our bodies have a LIMITED enzyme-producing capacity, which naturally declines as we age. (In fact, most individuals have only 30 percent of their enzyme potential by the time they are 40 years old!).

    Your body naturally produces over 3,000 different types of enzymes, yet our ONLY external source of enzymes comes from THE FOOD WE EAT.

    Digestive enzymes are found naturally in ALL food, whether it’s fruits, vegetables, or meats.

    However, most of the food we consume in our modern diets is completely devoid of enzymes, because of how we grow, prepare and transport it.

    And research demonstrates that ANY FOOD HEATED ABOVE 114 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT LOSES ALL OF ITS ENZYMES.

    In other words, all cooked food is deficient in digestive enzymes, leaving very little to break down your food.

    This means most of us are UNABLE to effectively digest the protein we eat.

    And that’s pretty shocking and scary when you think about it.

    But don’t be too alarmed, because some very bright scientist brains have thankfully figured out a solution:

    SUPPLEMENT YOUR DIET WITH HIGH QUALITY DIGESTIVE ENZYMES.

    You see, it turns out that enzymes are perhaps the most overlooked component of digestive health.

    Not only are digestive enzymes required for the breakdown and digestion of food. But their benefits extend well beyond that too…

    World-renowned colon expert Dr. Hiromi Shinya suggests in his book “The Enzyme Factor”, that undigested protein — particularly from milk products, fast food and red meat — can become ‘food’ for “bad” bacteria.

    And these bad bacteria create all kinds of toxins that leak into the blood stream.

    Meanwhile Dr. Edward Howell, author of “Enzyme Nutrition”, has demonstrated conclusively that using digestive enzymes can improve digestion, regulate weight, and ease the symptoms of a variety of health conditions.

    BUT QUALITY IS KEY.

    If you take a look around, you’ll find a whole bunch of enzyme formulations being sold in the market. But they’re certainly not all created equal — especially when it comes to the enzyme that digests protein: PROTEASE.

    And there’s a big reason of this…

    Protease is the most expensive of the enzymes to make.

    And there are several kinds of protease enzymes.

    And while most formulations have high levels of amylase (digests carbohydrates), or lipase (digests fats), the protease (digests protein) tends to be LOW QUALITY and in low amounts with most formulations.

    And it’s called MASSZYMES: Masszymes digestive enzymes

    P.S. Did you know that taking a protease supplement can actually help reduce strength loss, and boost short-term strength recovery too when you train?

    And here’s where to go again to get your hands on Masszymes:
