Using a Protein Shake for Weight Loss?Learn How to Choose the Right One.

The right protein powder can be an excellent tool in weight loss if you choose one that is low calorie and great tasting. According to Women’s Health “….getting some of your daily protein in powder form can save you tons of calories. It turns out, protein powder is the lowest-cal way out there to get your protein. That’s because protein powders contain little if any grams of fat or carbohydrates, so all of their calories come from protein.” 2

In addition to looking out for fat and carbs, you should choose a protein powder that does not contain a lot of added sugars. Aim for 2 grams of sugar per serving. According to the Cleveland Clinic, people watching their sugar or with diabetic concerns should look at ingredient labels and pick protein powders without added sugar. “Patients who have diabetes should choose protein shakes without added sugar (don’t choose protein powders with sugar listed as one of the first three ingredients). It’s also best to look for a shake that’s low in carbohydrates (less than 5 grams per serving).” 1

dscn3474It is really important to read the ingredient labels, because not all protein powders are the same. According to Active Times, “Many poor-quality protein powders have a lot of fillers and other cheap ingredients that affect the overall quality and bioavailability of the protein. It is important that the protein is bioavailable and easily digested because that means you get more bang for your buck, and you’ll get the most amount of protein to your muscles, which is what you want!” 3  Livestrong echoes that sentiment, “Some higher quality protein powders deliver all the nutrients you need and help your muscles to recover from exercise or simply help you boost your daily protein intake, while others lack quality, purity and even taste.”4
