At UNJURY, we speak with lots of patients who started gaining weight when they stopped using protein shakes. Which begs the question --Why does the switch away from protein powder shakes trigger weight gain?
There are three reasons:
- A shake gets you the protein you need without a lot of extra calories from carbs and fat.
- The whey protein isolate in UNJURY® Protein can’t be beat for feeling full
- It’s great for portion control
Protein shakes are your protection against regaining the weight you lost. By getting in 3 shakes per day (protein powder, ready to drink protein shakes or protein bars) you won’t be as hungry AND you will get in your protein.
There is strong medical research that supports getting 90 grams of high-quality protein per day—for everyone over age 40—not just bariatric patients. That’s between 25 and 30 grams, THREE times a day.
Getting in good levels of protein is vital in order to support your immune system and especially during this pandemic. How much protein? We suspect that 25-30 grams, three times per day is optimal because it is optimal for a tissue production system in your body called the mTOR pathway.
