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…

In this paper we are going to be discussing protein. We will look at protein and the importance of it for our body. We will look at the good and the bad of what protein can do for the body. Protein is a very important nutrient for the body and we will see what and why it is important.
Protein and Types
Protein is the primary component of a number of our body tissues. It is a part of every…
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.
Protein can help you shed those unwanted pounds and keep your belly full. But it's important to eat the right amount and the right kind of protein to get the health benefits.
Types of Protein Supplements
35. What type of bond occurs when electrons are shared by two atoms? Covalent bonding
36. __ are long-chain fatty acids that are solids at room temperature: waxes
37. Proteins are large polymers made of repeating amino acid subunits: true
38. __ structure in a protein is formed from hydrogen bonding: secondary
39. What type of bond occurs when a hydrogen atom participates in a polar covalent bond so that it is slightly positive in charge? Hydrogen bonding
Alleles are pairs of genes found in certain positions in the chromosomes (see figure 1). Chromosomes are threadlike strands of DNA and protein. Chromosomes are located in the nucleus of most living cells carrying genetic information in the form of genes (see figure 2). Alleles determine the genotype of an organism. The Genotype shows what alleles an organism has by letters either being upper or lower case (see figure 3). These DNA codings determine different traits that the parents…
macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids.
2. Use their understanding from the goals above to predict how various structural modifications can affect the behavior of macromolecules.
Part A. Answer the questions. Then use your answers to develop simple rules for identifying carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids.
1. What is the approximate C:H:O ratio in each of the following types of macromolecules?
The Science of Proteomics
Proteomics is the study of protein structure and funct ion at a la rge scale
The name is der ived f rom genomics (the study of genomes)
Sta rted i n 1997
SNPS – d ifferences are extrememly old and can be used to look at m igrat ion patterns. Genomics looks at whats d ifferent among people

epithelial cells is sticky because it has less water than normal, this is because of less salt & water transport caused by a faulty protein channel.
Antibodies, enzymes and many hormones are all protein molecules. Proteins also have functions within a membrane.
Proteins are composed of amino acids, there are 20 different amino acids that occur in proteins.
All amino acids contain an amine group -NH, a carboxylic acid group -COOH, and a hydrogen -H attached to central carbon atom…
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…
