Does Whey Protein Cause Weight Gain
It depends: Whey protein can either help with weight loss or weight gain depending on how you use it. If used as a meal replacement as part of a restricted calorie diet, it helps with weight loss. If used along with heavy weight lifting and a moderate or high calorie, high protein diet, muscle enlargement and weight gain will occur. ...Read more
All if used right: I don't know of any whey protein powder that causes "massive weight gain." in general, weight gain comes from excessive starches &/or fats. Pure protein like whey does not cause this. But one will not have muscle gain just by eating whey- only by exercising as well! i strongly advise whey from grass-fed cows not given hormones & antibiotics, even better if processed at a low temperature. ...Read more
Wouldn't be what I: would recommend. You might mean one of two things: does it help put on muscle. It isn't a complete protein and whey or food is a better one to use. Can mix it with other proteins to make it more effective. Can it help limit weight. A change in diet, alters one's habits and fatties lose weight temporarily https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1775472781/devils-diet ...Read more
Yes, all protein: Whey is a milk based protein that can contribute to weight gain like other proteins: beef, fish, poultry, eggs, etc. To gain weight you need to consume more calories than you burn. Go online to figure out how many calories you need to maintain weight, then eat more, taking into account how much you burn. You can drink whey, but it is no better than your own cheaper shake of ice cream, milk and PB! ...Read more
No reasons to be...: I couldn't found reasons to support concern/connection of whey protein/mass gainer to ed. Note: healthy lifestyle + no overindulgence ; obsession = surest insurance to keep up free-flow circulation to distribute nutrition to nurture all tissues ; organs = more energy ; ability to display an active/vibrant life, sex included. Despite enlisting its mental ; physical causes, both are inseparable. ...Read more
Calorie economics: Soy milk does not cause weight gain anymore than other food (including regular milk). Weight gain occurs when the total calorie intake exceeds the calories consumed by the body in activities, leading to storing away of the calories. In general, calories from all food sources not used are turned to fat and stored for later use. Portion control is important. Avoid drinking too much soy milk. ...Read more
No evidence of that: Typically side effects of taking whey protein are focused on the digestive tract: reflux, bloating, gas, constipation, cramps, nausea, decreased appetite and upset stomach. It may also effect blood sugar levels and needs to be used with caution by those with diabetes. I see no side effect reports of hair loss. Safety has been tested for daily doses of 30 grams for six months. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Stop taking it.: Natural hormone replacement is fraught with danger. There are very safe and proven estrogen replacement medications that are well-studied and whose proper dosing and side effects are well understood. That is not the case with herbal forms, which are not even guaranteed to do what they say. See your doc and consider plant based estrogen replacement first, not horse-derived. ...Read more
The idea behind: protein supplements is that, when combined with weight training, aerobic training and calorie restriction, they help reduce body fat and develop quality muscle mass. So you are trying to gain weight/muscle when you use it properly. By chubby, I assume you mean a gain in fat. Used properly, this should not occur. Meals focused on protein should achieve the same affect. Hope this helps:) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: In most cases not necessarily; but depending what supplement we are discussing (and what woman, for example severely emaciated, special conditions, etc.). ...Read more
Both junk: Obviously you can't have it both ways. The protein is broken down in your stomach and metabolized for calories. It's a waste of money and won't help with either weight gain or loss. Save your money and spend it on quality nutrition and exercise -- they actually work for both gain or loss if done properly. Get your protein from your diet. ...Read more
Exercise: Eat a generally healthy diet, with at least some fruits and vegetables and some form of protein like fish, meat, beans, etc. And do some form of resistance exercise. That is like weight lifting, isometric exercise, push ups, etc. Just pay attention and don't hurt yourself. Increase resistance slowly and don't jerk when lifting. That will increase muscle mass. ...Read more
