The buiding blocks of protein are called “amino acids”  which are an essential component of every cell in the body. The cells of the immune system, skin, hair and muscle all depend on protein in order to function properly and for growth.

To maintain weight a woman needs 50 to 60 grams of protein a day and men at least 70 to 80 grams of protein a day. An easy way to determine the amount of protein needed daily is to have 1 gram of protein for each kilogram of body weight, so if you weigh 60 kilograms, you need approximately 60 grams of protein a day to maintain your current weight.

Formula 3 protein supplement powder supports the body’s potential to maintain muscle mass while you are busy shedding unwanted fat.

Sports people Few will argue that nutrition plays a critical role in everyone’s health, but it is especially important for athletes involved in muscle-mass development. Even the most powerful athletes can’t reach their potential without proper nutrition. Athletes must provide their bodies with high-quality protein to assist muscle cells in repairing themselves. Protein comes in the form of meat, soy products, cheese and dairy products. However, most of these are in the form of animal proteins, which add greatly to the bad cholesterol in our bodies. Therefore we need to look for high quality proteins from non-animal sources, which helps you to reduce your fat percentage.

For serious athletes, Formula 3 protein supplement powder provides the extra necessary nutrition. A results-oriented formula designed to meet the extra nutritional requirements of athletes involved in muscle-mass development.

Athletes who incorporate both soy and whey protein into their daily nutritional regimes may benefit from their different rates of digestion and amino acid absorption. Whey protein digests more quickly, while soy protein digests more gradually. Together, they may provide a more prolonged, deliberate release of amino acids to key muscle groups.

Nutrition plays a key role during the acute exercise phase by providing the energy, micronutrients and muscle-building factors to maximize exercise effort. If essential amino acids and metabolic catalysts for muscle growth are in short supply, muscle and strength gains are less than maximum.

To summarise: protein helps you to manage your weight in two important ways:

Hunger Control: Protein-rich shakes, meals and snacks help control hunger because protein is digested slowly and it sends a message to the brain that the body is full and satisfied.

Fat Burning: Eating the right amount of protein daily helps maintain and build lean body mass as you lose weight, which in turn keeps your metabolism up, so you continue to burn fat. Formula 1 shake, along with Formula 3 protein supplement powder and Herbalife’s various protein snacks help satisfy your hunger immediately and help control your hunger throughout the day. You’ll be amazed by the difference it makes in your weight-loss results to have the right amount of protein and of course a healthy source of protein based on soy, a vegetable protein.
