I knew a girl in the gym who used to drink a protein shake within a half hour after working out at the gym. It was so she does not lose muscle. Is that true?
Trying to Lose Weight With Protein Shakes
Trying to lose weight isn’t difficult — all you need to do is burn more calories than you take in. That’s the tough part.
Protein shakes won’t make you lose weight on their own. Shakes add calories. They don’t take them away. So why could it help you?
As I said, trying to lose weight is easy if you burn more calories than you take in. Muscle burns more calories than fat does. Protein helps construct muscle, assuming you are exercising well in order to build that muscle.
If you are eating fats and extra carbohydrates and sugars, substituting protein shake calories for some of those ‘bad calories’ will likely help you build muscle (with exercise), and will also aid in weight loss.
So if you are exercising intensely, reducing bad food intake, and adding protein shakes can actually give you better results when you are trying to lose weight.
