My mother has always been a health and fitness nut and she advised me to replace one or two meals a day with a Whey Protein drink. She said if I cut most of the carbs and replaced it with protein, I would lose weight. However, EVERYONE else who sees that I have Whey Protein powder in my kitchen says that it will make me gain weight. I exercise five days a week and lift weights twice a week now, so will the Whey protein help me lose weight or prevent me from losing it?
The protein intake question is just that - a question - when it comes to weight loss. For one thing, even if you cut most of the carbs, about 1/2 of the protein will convert into new carbohydrates. What you probably need, it a proper ratio of carb to protein to fat. Read more about it here:
