Soy Protein Shake For Weight Loss


Proteins can be very useful in your weight regime if you want to lose weight without sacrificing your health and active energy which is essential for your regular day to day activities. Our body has a natural mechanism through which it can synthesize carbohydrates from proteins when we are on a low carbohydrate diet.

And as a staple protein, soy protein is your best bet because while being high on protein it does not have the cholesterol that is mandatory of animal protein. It is also low in fat and carbohydrates, two things detrimental to your weight regime. Soy protein shakes are the easiest way you can include soy in your diet. They are easily available and are very handy as they can be consumed anytime or anywhere.

Get the soy power

1. The ideal time for you to have your soy protein shake would be the middle of the day. Skip your lunch or have the shake along with a light and healthy snack like a fruit and your ready to work for the rest of the day. No mid-afternoon drowsiness, no lethargy, you will be brimming with energy and enthusiasm. It is ideal for light eaters. Soy protein shakes are also very easy to carry and can be consumed almost anywhere! So, have it. It also gives you that satiety effect which makes you feel full.

2. But most importantly soy protein shakes help you burn fat and decrease your body’s fat storage. It also prevents further fat from being deposited in your body. Through a particular enzyme mechanism, soy also decreases the fluctuation of insulin in your body, thus reducing your want for ‘sugary snacks’, which also helps in weight management.

But you need to make sure that the meals you are taking is not high carb or high fat. A high protein, moderate carb and low fat diet is ideal when trying to lose weight. Eat fruits like apples and goji berries that are natural appetite suppressants and drink lots of water.

3. Include foods that speed up our metabolic rate together with your soy protein shake when trying to lose weight. Green tea, spinach, pepper are few things that’ll do the trick.

Soy protein shakes also increase your body’s muscle mass, thus giving you a lean shape and simultaneously burning your body fat. By increasing your body’s muscle mass, soy protein increases the basic surface area where you body fat is burnt, thus burning more fat everyday and stopping them from being deposited in adipose tissues. However soy protein shakes alone are not enough for you to lose weight and in the long run a more effective regime of exercise and healthy food along with this is required to maintain a long term weight loss.
