The latest checkout magazine touted "Lose 43lbs by Memorial Day"..and I was hooked. I grabbed it up and paid my $2.02 happily, rushed out the car and found that Whey protein powder (along with walking and soul searching) was the answer. So what did I do? I went out and bought the powder. Fad follower...right here.
Do I think it will solve my weight problem? Probably not...but do I hope it will help...YES, otherwise I wouldn't be trying it.
I can see the logic...protein keeps you fuller and if you drink a couple protein shakes daily at less calories, you'll be less likely to eat MORE calories and in the end they say it's all about cutting calories (and exercise..boo). So eat less calories that make you feel more full. Simple enough. I've been drinking the 'shakes' since Saturday and I can tell you that I am fuller. Have I lost any weight...meh..a measly .4 from last week. BUT again...if I pay attention to it..I do feel more full. I'm also not eating alot of carbs...and I'm gonna start walking....
I'll keep you all posted on if the whey DOES make a difference...stay tuned!
