Are you heavy, or do you just want to cut body fat? Then drink a protein shake. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Human Nutrition Research Center found that when a group of study subjects (paunchy middle-aged adults) added two protein shakes daily, they lost body weight and an inch off their waists after eating the same number of average calories than those who didn't drink the whey shakes.
The study subjects added 104 g of protein per day to their diet. A different study, featured in Obesity, found that high-protein diets promote satiety and appetite control, which also aid in weight management.
