Protein Bars & Shakes Q & A

Why is Protein Important for Weight Loss?

Protein is an essential component of muscle tissue and helps maintain lean muscle mass. When following a diet, it can be easy to lose muscle along with fat, especially if you don’t have help from the physicians at Dr. G’s.

With support and resources from the team at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness, you can learn about your unique protein needs to build and maintain lean muscle tissue while still losing excess body fat. Increasing lean muscle tissue can also boost your metabolism and help you burn more calories, even when you’re sleeping.

What are the Benefits of Protein Shakes and Bars?

In addition to helping you build or maintain lean muscle when you’re losing weight, protein shakes and bars are also beneficial for the following reasons:

  • Quick, convenient nutrition
  • Scientifically formulated for precise levels of the nutrients you need
  • No excess carbohydrates or fats that can cause weight gain
  • Easy meal replacement or snack option
  • Portable and can be eaten anywhere

Compared to the time and effort required to prepare high protein meals, protein shakes and bars are a much easier and quicker option when aiming to increase your daily protein intake. Protein bars and shakes are most beneficial when you’re following an exercise program since the protein helps repair and rebuild muscles after exercise.

When Should I Have a Protein Bar or Shake?

While protein bars and shakes shouldn’t replace meals entirely, they can be taken as a meal replacement when you might normally skip a meal, like breakfast. They’re also a healthy snack to refuel after a workout without taking in too many carbs or fats that might undo your hard work in the gym.

Protein shakes and bars can also fill in nutritional gaps if you have a hard time getting enough protein in your diet, especially if you follow a vegetarian diet or avoid certain protein-rich foods, like dairy products due to lactose intolerance.

You can also use protein bars and shakes to recover after workouts or injuries. Since protein provides specific amino acids that help repair body tissues, incorporating a protein bar or shake into your diet can help your body recover faster or decrease muscle soreness after a tough workout.
