  • Whey protein

    I seem to have plateaued my weight .
    I am thinking of trying whey protein as a substitute for breakfast which is also low carb .Will this help?

    If you're OK with that, try intermittent fasting, skip breakfast and sometimes lunch as well.
    Cycle through your macro-nutrients (sometimes low carb high fat, other times high carb low fat). If you're diabetic or have any intolerance of some kind, talk to someone knowledgeable.

    About the whey subs: why replace real foods with a powder ?

      My understanding is that powdered and liquid food aren't a great idea for people trying to lean out. You can read about a mouse experiment involving powdered food here: The Calorie Paradox: Did Four Rice Chex Make America Fat? (Part II of “There Is No Such Thing As A Calorie”) - GNOLLS.ORG

        How long have you been on the plateau? Are you doing strength training? If you are you may simply be gaining muscle, which is heavy!! Are you losing cm still?
        Although there is a meal replacement product being advertised now, TPB really only recommends meal replacements if you are on the go.
        Hope this helps x

              Thanks for the recommendation of the Formulx, I have been looking for a good protein mix to add to my smoothies when I am on-the-go and need to drink a breakfast or an after-workout drink.
