How does protein powder help with weight loss?

Whey protein powder can be used to supplement a healthy diet for weight loss. Creating an overall energy deficit through exercise and eating a good balance of whole food groups is key for anyone looking to lose weight – unfortunately protein shakes alone don’t contain any magic weight loss remedies. Taking protein shakes alongside a healthy diet can aid weight loss. Protein shakes can help fend off food cravings as they keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer. With no added sugar, nothing artificial, no fillers and trace amounts of fat and carbs, WPI90 is healthy for you and comes in at under 120 calories per shake when mixed with water.

Should I take protein powder for weight loss before, during or after working out?

If using your protein alongside an exercise regime then we recommend enjoying a protein shake within an hour of finishing your workout to enhance recovery. Protein shakes can also be consumed at any time throughout the day, depending on your individual needs. It’s ideal to spread your protein intake throughout the day as your body can only process so much protein in one sitting/meal.

Do I need weight loss protein powders to help lose weight?

No, protein powders are not essential if you are wanting to lose weight. A combination of regular exercise and eating in a calorie deficit will generally help you to lose weight (depending on medical conditions). Not everyone loses weight the same way however, protein powders can be a great addition in your weight loss journey. Check out our blog for more on how to use protein for your fitness goals.

How long should it take to see results from weight loss protein?

The time it takes to see results differs from person to person depending on gender, age, starting point, sleep quality and other factors such as medical conditions or medications. However, you could start seeing results anywhere between 4-8 weeks when taking protein in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.

Which weight loss protein powders should be coupled together?

Generally, it’s not necessary to stack more than one protein powder together. However, it could be beneficial to add a range of high protein options into your diet. For example, you might like to have a protein smoothie with Vegan85 powder in the morning after your workout, a Protein Bar as an afternoon snack, and a Protein Mousse with berries for dessert. This keeps your diet interesting, high in protein, and these options are so tasty, you won’t feel deprived of any decadence! On top of this, when buying True’s weight loss protein powders online, you can enjoy free shipping when you spend over $99, which is even more of a reason to pair our products together!
