Protein, protein powder and weight loss

Here at Healthy Mummy H.Q, we work hard every day to empower mums to take charge of their lifestyle and support them on their weight loss journey.

We exist to help MUMS shift the baby weight, improve their fitness and pride ourselves on delivering affordable, family-friendly programs like the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and creating healthy, nutrient-filled Healthy Mummy Smoothies (and now protein powders) to help mums reach their weight loss goals with ease and without fuss.

While our Healthy Mummy Smoothies have been formulated by leading nutritionists to be a sufficient meal replacement; our Healthy Mummy Protein Powder is simply a protein powder, great to consume post-workout or as a snack (on its own or to be used when cooking/baking) to assist with tissue repair, muscle growth and muscle maintenance.

What’s more, it’s a supplement designed to help you hit your daily protein intake. After all, protein is a key factor when it comes to successful weight loss.

3 main benefits of protein for weight loss

Protein is an essential macronutrient that we basically cannot live without.

When thinking about weight loss we pretty much know by now that we should be eating protein with every meal. Protein helps to keep us full as it stays in the stomach longer compared with carbohydrates.

Quality protein also helps you sustain muscle during weight loss, improve muscle fitness, immunity, and antioxidant function, build HDL (good) cholesterol and enhance insulin and leptin function – all of which contribute toward optimal weight management efforts over time.

The main benefits of protein when it comes to weight loss are:

  • Eating adequate protein coming from food fuels fat burning, while preserving lean muscle – i.e you won’t be “skinny fat” when you lose weight – you will look lean and toned.
  • Protein keeps you fuller for longer – and that means there will be less chance of snacking on sugary foods that go straight to your thighs.
  • Your body uses the amino acids in protein to build lean muscle, which makes you stronger and also burns calories even when you are not active.

Be careful not to go overboard on the protein though, as too much can be stored as glucose.

If you don’t exercise this off it will then store as fat. A good guideline for protein consumption is somewhere between 0.8g – 1g of protein per kilogram of body weight. The aim is to eat a moderate protein diet – (not a high protein one).

Examples of food sources of protein include Greek yoghurt, almonds, boiled eggs, leg ham, chicken breast and feta cheese. Try to include these protein-rich foods daily as healthy snacks and you will easily increase your protein intake.
