Combine whey protein with exercise for improved body composition

“There is something unique about whey protein when it comes to building lean body mass and maintaining or losing weight,” doctors said.

Researchers analyzed 14 studies covering 626 generally healthy adults who took whey protein with or without exercise. In five studies where whey protein replaced calories, participants lost an average of 9.2 pounds of body weight. In nine studies of whey protein with resistance exercise, participants who took whey protein increased lean body mass by an average of 4.9 pounds.

Discussing their findings, doctors said there is a growing body of research that supports the benefits of whey protein for maintaining weight and increasing lean body mass.
