Whey Protein for Appetite Suppression

High-protein, low-carb diets have been popular for some time now and the fact is people do experience weight loss while following these diets.


One of the reasons high-protein diets are so effective is that they promote satiety and diminish your hunger pangs.


Whey protein is derived from cow’s milk and is rich in all essential amino acids. Whey protein isolate (the form of protein in HEXAPRO and ISOFLEX) is the purest and highest quality form of protein. It is free of fat, cholesterol and lactose. A study conducted at the University of California found that whey protein increases cholecystokinin (CCK), the hormone responsible for appetite regulation. CCK is released by the stomach and is a major contributor to the body’s desire to eat or feel satisfied.


Protein has been found to suppress this hormone more effectively than either carbohydrates or fats. The body requires more energy to digest protein than other food, which causes an increase in metabolism. This in turn, results in a higher potential to burn calories than other macronutrients. Protein is important, no matter what type of diet that you are following. Experts suggest that active men and women should consume between 0.65 g and 1.0 g of protein per one pound of body weight, depending on your goals and fitness level. These protein requirements can be reached by consuming several small meals throughout the day.


Adding a source of protein to every meal is important for weight management and preservation of lean muscle mass. Adding whey protein, such as a scoop of ISOFLEX protein powder to your midday snacks, can help to provide appetite satiety between meals and provide energy to get through the day. Get creative with your protein powder. It’s just not for shakes. You can cook with it too. Check out our high protein recipes.
