Getting lots of protein is key to successful weight loss and maintenance, and many doctors recommend using a supplement long-term. A recent meta-analysis of 32 studies, comprised of 3,500 individuals, found a persistent and positive effect of dietary protein on long-term weight maintenance . And dairy protein is particularly helpful.
- Improves satiety, so you feel full longer
- Increases thermogenesis, so you burn more calories
- Preserves lean muscle mass during weight loss
- Reduces body fat and waist circumference
- Reduces weight regain after dieting
UNJURY® as an Insurance Policy
One veteran support group moderator recommends 2 daily servings of UNJURY for weight maintenance to her patients for the rest of their lives as an “insurance policy” to make sure they meet their daily protein requirements, which the latest research indicates is a minimum of 90 grams per day for people over 40. Some foods are higher in protein, but almost always bring along fat, calories and carbs. In contrast, roughly 90% of the calories in UNJURY are protein.
Protein is good for a lot more than your weight. Ideal levels of protein help with normal immune function, active metabolism, stable blood sugar and keeping you strong. Conversely, insufficient protein is closely linked to failure to lose or maintain weight, hair loss, muscle tissue loss, and reduced immune function. So, it’s clear that protein should be part of your long-term plan to stay healthy.
