You already know protein has many, many benefits such as protecting your muscle mass and helping you maintain a healthy metabolism. Another way protein can help weight loss is that it keeps you feeling full longer.
A growling tummy is hard to ignore, and hunger generally just feels bad. It can lead to mindless snacking and poorer food choices because we want to make that feeling go away.
Satiety—or the feeling of being full— is something many of us seek out while trying to lose weight. That’s why protein is the perfect partner in any diet, whether you are pre-op post-op, or correcting weight regain.
We like to say that UNJURY® Protein is your Trusted Companion
Here’s what we know:
Protein provides steady energy.
- - have you ever had a cup of cereal for breakfast and then you are hungry an hour later? That is because carbohydrates provide a sugar high, followed by a crash and then intense hunger. Compare that to when you have a protein shake with fruit and yogurt for breakfast. It’s nutritious and you aren’t hungry until lunch. It makes quite a difference!
Protein is best for feeling full:
- Scientific research - there have been many studies about the “fullness factor” of protein. See this study from the National Institute of Health: “increased satiety--protein generally increases satiety to a greater extent than carbohydrate or fat and may facilitate a reduction in energy consumption under ad libitum dietary conditions.”
Whey Protein is believed to have a stronger “fullness effect” than other protein sources.
Here at UNJURY, we only use the highest quality and best tasting whey protein, making it easy for you to enjoy your protein and stay full longer.
