Best Protein For Your Diet

Best Protein For Your Diet High protein diets have been shown to help active people lose body fat while retaining muscle mass. While it's recommended that you vary the sources of proteins, carbs and fat, one dairy protein stands out for supporting weight loss. Consider this study published online in the journal PLOS ONE.

Young lab mice were fed a high-fat diet for 14 weeks. Some had their diet supplemented with whey protein with the rest getting casein protein. Measurements taken throughout the study period showed that whey helped reduce the amount of body weight gain during the first 4 weeks. There were no differences between the two dairy proteins in the remaining 10 weeks.

True Strength Moment: While no serious diet includes large amounts of high-fat foods, most high-protein diets swap fats for carbohydrates to some degree. If regular intense training is part of your weight loss initiative, try mixing up a whey protein shake post-workout with casein at night before bed.
