The Fat-Burning Effect of Award Winning Protein
Simply replacing a meal or two every day with a Metabolic Drive® shake will help shed excess fat without feeling deprived. Adding a couple of Metabolic Drive® shakes per day will also give your body the extra protein it needs to build muscle and perform at its best.
Whether your goal is losing fat or gaining muscle, adding more protein to your diet will help get you closer to your goal. Here's why:
- Diets higher in protein lead to greater fat loss. One reason for this is because protein is filling. It satisfies hunger and naturally leads to reduced calorie intake, making it an effective appetite suppressant. On top of that, it's difficult for your body to convert protein into body fat, even at very high amounts. This means you can eat a lot of it, feel full and satisfied, and still lose fat.
- Protein burns almost twice the calories digesting than carbohydrates and fats. Eating protein is thermogenic and can lead to a higher metabolic rate. This means greater fat loss when dieting and less fat gain when overfeeding to build muscle.
- Without adequate protein, muscle building halts, strength gains are slow or nonexistent, and athletic performance is impaired.
- Protein is essential for preserving muscle and sustaining metabolic rate. Without a steady supply of consumed protein, the body breaks down its own muscle to meet its demand. A diet higher in protein prevents this loss.
