Whey Protein a Fat Loss Supplement? We all see the huge jugs of protein as we pass by in grocery stores or various other places that sell the supplement; usually with an eye catching advertisement like a ripped female/male, or a delicious looking drink made of that of the powder. For my assignment I happened to have a jug and after examining it I saw that the company making the whey protein claimed “this protein has jaw dropping results that limit weight gain.” This surprised me, I thought the purpose of the powder was to encourage protein/calories and promote weight gain? Not being sure whether to agree with the statement or not, after research done it was clear that the advertisement, was in fact, true. According to an article written in the Department of Heath and Exercise Science “All of the constituents of whey protein provide high levels of the essential and branched chain amino acids. The bioactivities of these proteins possess many beneficial properties as well. Additionally, whey is also rich in vitamins and minerals. Whey protein is most recognized for its applicability in sports nutrition (Hoffman/Folvo 121).” In every journal, whey protein is described as having great effects on the body. After reading many excerpts like the one above, I knew that we discussed protein in great depth in class and knew that there were very important essential amino acids in this compound. I then went to the label of my protein and found the numbers to be surprising. In a forty-two gram serving Leucine, which accounts for muscle health, was at 1,616 milligrams and many other essential amino acids like Valine, which helps promote mental strength, at 1076 milligrams. There is no question that whey protein is beneficial but I still wanted to know just how well it worked with weight loss. In class Dr. Baum presented a chart that showed the fat gained from a whey breakfast vs. wheat and the results were in favor of whey with about only seven grams of fat coming from it while still having a greater muscle gained percent. PennMedicine.org reports that a healthy diet is consumed of around sixty-five grams per day and of that no more than twenty-two grams of saturated fat should be consumed. If that’s the case then consuming whey protein in the form of a meal would be just the perfect amount of fat and still allowing you to fit in fifteen more grams of fat in two meals. Standing from an aspect of trying to lose weight, whey would make a great decision. Still searching for more proof I came across an analysis done by PubMed.org with the objective of taking people and with or without resistance to exercise while on a whey diet, and examining the body weight and body composition after. “The current body of literature supports the use of Whey Protein, either as a supplement combined with resistance exercise or as part of a weight loss or weight maintenance
are several products on the market today considered to help athletes push themselves to the next level one of the key elements in physical growth is consuming enough protein to trigger muscle growth. The key achievements proposed within this business proposal is to identify market structure for protein products, and elasticity of protein. The proposal will also include detailed information about how pricing relates to elasticity, determine the changes in quantity supplies and how it affects the marginal…
Protein is any of a class of nitrogenous organic compounds that consist of large molecules composed of one or more long chains of amino acids and are an essential part of all living organisms, esp. as structural components of body tissues, and as enzymes and antibodies.

The purpose of this experiment was to make brownies for athletes who need additional protein each day. By replacing the flour with whey protein powder, the sensory characteristics were evaluated. The experiment was conducted at Ouachita Baptist University and consisted of baking 4 batches of brownies with slightly different ingredients. The first was the control batch, all the ingredients were that of a regular brownie consisting of the regular amount of flour and…
consistent results compared to Mother culture process (this is not being used and is not important in this experiment). Even large cheese making plants now uses DVI to ensure that every batch produces a uniform product.
About the milk:
Milk contains proteins, specifically caseins, that maintain its liquid form. Proteases are enzymes that are added to milk during cheese production, to hydrolyze caseins, specifically kappa casein, which stabilizes formation preventing coagulation. Rennet and rennin are…
foods. You increase your quality high protein food intake. You still eat your proper food, just more of it.
On a bulking diet I eat a high calorie breakfast consisting of eggs, milk, oatmeal, and sometimes a protein shake. I eat a pre-workout meal, and a very high calorie post-workout shake. This ensures maximum energy for working out, and maximum recovery after a workout, which will aid in gaining weight. My post workout shake currently consists of protein powder mixed in skim milk with dextrose…
eating more on each meal, and should have a higher carbs : protein intake ratio. Ectomorphs can also eat more fat, and should eat more caloric dense foods. This will give the body the calories it needs to rebuild muscle and put on mass. Food ratio should be 40:40:20 for protein carbohydrates and fat and fat can exceed that and so can carbs.

Chapter 6 – Protein: Amino Acids
Describe how the chemical structure of proteins differs from the structures of carbohydrates and fats?
-The nitrogen atoms give the name amino (nitrogen containing) to the structures of carbohydrates and fats.
Explain the process used by the body to synthesize new proteins.
-More than half of the amino acids are nonessential, meaning the body can synthesize them for itself. Proteins in foods usually deliver these amino acids, but it is not essential that they…
