Protein Shakes Q & A
Can protein shakes help me lose weight?
As the name suggests, Dr. G’s Protein Shakes deliver a protein boost to your body. Protein is an essential body nutrient that carries several benefits if you’re working out or sculpting your muscles.
In addition to helping you build muscle, protein shakes can help you lose weight by taking the place of certain foods that are high in fat or carbohydrates, which contribute to weight gain.
How do protein bars help?
Similar to protein shakes, Dr. G’s Protein Bars provide your body with a boost of protein. They’re easy to carry around with you, and many patients find protein bars particularly filling, so they can make for an excellent meal replacement or snack substitute. Your Dr. G’s provider can discuss how to best fit your protein bars into your new weight loss and wellness plan.
Am I a good candidate for protein shakes?
Though protein shakes have grown in popularity over the years, they are most helpful for people who are:
- Still growing: protein is a critical element for the developing body
- Working out regularly: your body requires a lot of protein to build muscle
- Changing their diet: if you’ve started a new diet and cut out some foods that would typically provide protein, a protein shake helps fill the gap
- Recovering from an injury: protein boosts the healing process
How do protein shakes fit into my diet?
Your Dr. G’s provider prescribes protein shakes in combination with an agreed upon weight loss program. You should only consume your Dr. G’s Protein Shakes according to your provider’s instructions. In most cases, you will consume your protein shakes alongside any physical activities contained in your weight loss program.
Protein shakes cannot replace regular food intake, and drinking too many of them without physical exercise can cause weight gain.
