Whey Protein Counters Spikes

You know how tired and listless you get late in the afternoon after a carbohydrate-heavy lunch? According to research published in the Nutrition Journal, a whey protein shake might help stabilize that crash. Scientists found that whey protein decreased blood sugar levels after subjects drank a carbohydrate beverage containing 50 grams of glucose.

The Bigger Picture: Bodybuilders eat 6 to 7 small meals throughout the day to keep their metabolism running and avoid the blood sugar spikes along with the associated crashes that can occur when larger meals are consumed less frequently. This study suggests that whey protein is an ideal fit for the role of mini-meal, supporting the regulation of blood sugar while quickly supplying amino acids for muscle rebuilding and growth.
