Choosing a Protein Powder for Weight Loss

Thermowhey is the best Protein Powder for Weight Loss

Finding the Best Protein Powder for Weight Loss

Gymgoers, athletes and the like have long been using protein powders to fuel weight loss and promote lean muscle mass growth.

A high-protein diet can help you lose weight because protein promotes satiety, which is the feeling of fullness.

This means that consuming a diet high in protein can help you cut down on snacking and prevent overeating, which in turn promotes weight loss.

Incorporating a protein powder into your diet can help you hit your daily protein targets with more ease; you won’t need to whip up another protein-rich meal, you can simply add a scoop of protein powder to your favourite beverage.

However, not all protein powders are made equal.

Which protein is best to help you on your weightloss journey?

Different protein powders have different ingredients, nutritional values, and sugar contents.

While protein powders are extremely popular at the moment, many formulations are bulked up with filler ingredients — think additives, flavours, colourings and sugars.

In this article, we’ll cover how protein powder works for weight loss and share our recommendations on the best protein powders for weight loss.

Understanding Protein Powder For Weight Loss

Protein powder is a popular supplement among those looking to lose weight, but understanding exactly how it can support weight loss efforts is key to making the most of its benefits.

Studies show that protein can help you feel full for a longer period of time, therefore helping you consume fewer calories throughout the day.

Protein is also beneficial thanks to its digestive, absorptive, and metabolic properties. In other words, protein boosts our metabolism and therefore contributes to weight loss.

Remember, in order to effectively lose weight, powdered protein should be just one element of your overall weight-loss strategy.

You’ll also need to consume a healthy diet and exercise regularly to achieve and maintain great results.

Factors To Consider To Find The Best Weight Loss Protein Powder For You

So, which protein powders are good for weight loss? Below, we unpack what to look for in a protein powder.

  • Type of Protein. There are several types of protein powders that can be used to support weight loss goals. Whey Protein based products are particularly effective for weight loss thanks to their fast-absorption rate.
  • Protein Content. Some protein powders have a higher protein content than others. Take time to look at the nutrition label and choose a protein powder with high content per serving — around 30 grams is ideal.
  • Calories. If you want to use protein powder for weight loss, it’s important to look for a low-calorie protein powder, as excess calories can hinder your weight loss progress.
  • Quality of Ingredients. Opt for protein powders containing only high-quality ingredients and no fillers.
  • Allergens and Sensitivities. Thankfully, there are many protein powders that cater to dietary restrictions and allergies. If you’re vegan or allergic to dairy, there are a number of plant-based proteins to try.

Our Recommendations: The Best Protein To Lose Weight

We may be a little biased, but we strongly believe our Thermowhey Weight Loss Protein is the best protein powder for weight loss.

It's an exceptionally pure blend of WPI and Casein containing just enough flavouring and importantly, no fillers. It’s also low in fats, carbs and lactose thanks to the WPI's filtration process.

As WPI is a complete protein, it means Thermowhey contains all nine essential amino acids, including leucine which helps build muscle.

Thermowhey is best taken after an intense workout, as it can aid recovery and promote lean muscle mass growth.

The Best Vegan/Vegetarian Protein To Lose Weight

Closely resembling Thermowhey, our Lean Earth Protein switches the dairy protein sources for a delicious combination of Pea and Rice Protein.

This makes it perfect for those wanting the best protein to lose weight while on a vegan/vegetarian diet.
