Protein provides your body with amino acids, which help repair muscle tissue. Designer whey has an average of 18 grams of protein per serving. This is an adequate amount for a meal replacement, which will help you lose weight.
Protein allows your body to feel full without eating a lot of food and taking in many calories. By substituting a designer whey protein shake for a meal, you will cut calories and lose pounds.
Things You'll Need
- Water or Milk
Purchase a tub of designer whey protein. They come in a variety of sizes, so if you are not sure if you will like the product, or you're not committed to using designer whey to lose weight, you should buy a small container. Larger containers are usually more economical, and will last longer.
Decide what you want to mix the designer whey with to make a protein shake. You can mix the protein powder with water or milk. Milk gives the shake a creamier flavor, but also contains more calories than water, and more fats and sugars.
Mix the designer whey with your chosen liquid, using one scoop of whey per 12 ounces of fluid. You can mix the shake in a blender and pour it into a cup, or mix it in a glass with a spoon. An alternative is to buy a shaker for protein shakes. These shakers have a flip cap so that you can drink directly from the shaker once the drink is mixed. They also contain a whisk ball, which mixes the powder into the liquid and eliminates chunks in the drink.
Substitute a designer whey shake for a meal twice a day. The shake will only have 100 calories in it if you mix the powder with water, giving you a meal with far fewer calories than a normal meal-on-the-go. Burning the same amount of calories on a daily basis as you do currently--but ingesting fewer calories throughout the day--will allow you to shed pounds.
