No diet for promoting hormonal balance would be complete without including the selections of proteins. But my favorite choice is whey protein isolate.
It's for a number of reasons. Number one, it's the most bioavailable source of protein that we have.
It really has this huge, huge impact on insulin and blood sugar balance, so it can control your cravings and aid fat loss.
It's a rich source of tryptophan, which is a building block of serotonin, our happy hormone that's involved in food cravings. And finally, it's proven to lower cortisol, which is
great for tackling belly fat. You should have 30g of whey protein isolate, not the concentrate, because the concentrate contains
