What You Should Know
With the right protein supplement, dieters can feel less hungry and more in control of calorie intake. The trouble with many protein supplements is in the ingredient list. Sugar increases total calories and jacks up glucose levels. When glucose levels fall, the dieter feels hungry again and the dieter is more apt to overeat. There are natural and artificial sweeteners with very little sugar. Some protein powders are actually carbohydrate-free. Now Foods Whey Protein falls just short of zero carb with one gram of carbohydrate per serving, but this is a level most dieters can live with. Each serving of Now Foods Whey Protein contains 25 grams of protein and just 106 calories. Protein contains 4 calories per gram so there are just 6 calories attributed to ingredients other than protein. There is not a vitamin profile added to Now Foods Whey Protein so the dieter will need to take a healthy multi-vitamin once a day to promote overall nutrition.
List of Ingredients

When it comes to lean protein, protein shake mixes are ideal for dieters and bodybuilders alike. Now Foods Whey Protein is a source of lean protein with very few calories. The dieter can choose to add the shake mix to almond mix, soy milk or traditional milk for added thickness, taste and nutrition. Almond milk contains the least number of calories with only 45 calories for unsweetened milk. That brings the total for one meal to about 150 calories. Dieters will need to eat a lean meal with the protein mix or take two servings for optimal calories per meal.
What is missing from Now Foods Whey Protein? Nothing is missing from the supplement, but the dieter will not notice increased metabolism from drinking protein shakes.
