A lot of people start to do exercise to improve their physical shape, but they tend to forget or underestimate another importante fact: the Diet.

Diet does not mean Losing Weight

There is a general misconception when people talk about dieting. In fact, when we start talking about “going on a diet”, the first thing that comes to mind is “losing weight” and “strict”.

Healthy lifestyle

But this is far from truth, since going on a diet means maintaining correct nutritional patterns in order to achieve an objective (losing fat, gaining muscle mass, or maintaining the weight), while meeting our nutritional requirements.

Can Proteins help to Lose Weight?

Apart from being one of the essential macronutrients, proteins will also help us to improve our physical composition as well.

Whey protein, far from being an artificial products, comes from milk. The milk undergoes several processes in order to obtain the whey, like the filtration phase, which will results in a protein product without barely any lactose and very low in fat and other excipients.
