Protein Bars & Shakes Q & A

How Does Protein Help Me Lose Weight?

Protein is considered a macronutrient, which means that your body needs lots of it for optimal function. In fact, there’s very little that protein doesn’t influence, including:

  • Tissue building and repair
  • Your musculoskeletal structure (bones, muscle, and cartilage)
  • Your hormones
  • Your enzyme production
  • Your hair and nails

The goal of any effective weight-loss program is to cut down on fats and sugars, many of which are found in carbohydrates. While your body still needs some fat for energy, protein can help supply you with what you need, and it doesn’t store protein like it does fat. To boot, your body expends more effort turning protein into energy than it does turning fat and carbs into energy, which means you burn more calories.

Protein also works to make you feel full so that you’re not grabbing unhealthy snacks throughout the day.

How Do Protein Shakes and Protein Bars Work?

When you come in for your consultation, your Dr. G’s weight-loss expert tailors a program to your unique needs and goals. Protein shakes are a great tool that can replace or supplement many of your meals, delivering a concentrate of proteins that carry you through your day.

Protein bars work in much the same way, and they are an extremely convenient way to quell your hunger throughout the day. Life can get busy and taking the time to prepare protein-rich meals can be a daunting task. With protein bars and shakes, you have all that you need in the palm of your hand without ever entering the kitchen.

Do I Use Protein Bars and Shakes Alone?

The short answer to this question is: “No.” The protein bars and shakes are designed to replace many high-fat and carb-rich foods in your diet, but you should ensure that you’re getting the vitamins and nutrients you need through healthy eating. Rest assured, your weight-loss expert helps you formulate a diet that delivers what you need and cuts out what you don’t.
