Does whey protein make you gain weight

Common Questions and Answers about Does whey protein make you gain weight


Avatar n tn Would you not say that hypothyroid causes a sense of this lack of control due to the excessive weight gain that you cannot really control?? I gained 65 lbs in a year due to hypothyroid and let me tell you, this caused me to modify my diet in some very drastic ways, including cutting out food. Eating disorders may not develop through the hypothyroidism, but it very well CAN develop due to the weight gain CAUSED by hypothyroid. Please don't judge this person.
Avatar m tn Whey protein is good for you and will help build muscle, but you have to keep up the exercise, too. Not eating butter or cheese, doesn't mean your eating habits are excellent. You need to eat lots of fruits and veggies, along with high protein, lean meats, etc. You build stamina by working into an exercise routine, slowly. Have you thought about trying yoga, along with other exercise? Yoga concentrates on relaxation, stretching, breathing, etc and go a long way toward building stamina.
Avatar m tn You don't mention if you take Isolate or concentrate! I suggest using concentrate! Whey protein concentrate, NOT protein isolates Protein isolates are proteins stripped away from their nutritional cofactors. There are three problems with that... All isolates are exposed to acid processing. Your body cannot assimilate proteins in isolated form. Due to over-processing, isolates are deficient in key amino acids and nutritional cofactors.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Protein protein protein. AND fibre! Fill up on big time with fibre and protein and you shouldn't feel so hungry. I have Hashi as you know, and appetite is a big issue for most of us. Knowing how to satisfy that tummy and the brain the key to keeping the weight off. Look up on google for foods high in fibre, and use some of them as snacks rather than the eggs all the time. Some protein in them but not enough.
Avatar f tn We have had him on protien shakes made with whey protein, eggs, ice cream,milk, bananas, and peanut butter. The Dr, told us to give him whatever he wants when he wants it. So my fiance will give him honey buns with peanut butter on them and whatever else he wants. But he also does not like to finish everything. So I have told him he must finish everything before we will give him more. He goes through times where he will eat and then some days very little.
Avatar m tn This is kinda unhealthy when abused but it can work great when demanding your body extra energy like when you exercise. High fructose/high calories is very likely to make you gain weight.
Avatar n tn So again, just add another meal of the same healthy foods you already eat if you want to gain some weight and doing resistance training will make you gain muscle instead of fat, which is better. But also again, thin is good.
Avatar n tn Honestly, in my fitness courses I learned that all other supplements, such as Creatine, are bogus, for example stores will try to sell you Creatine as a miraculous aid to getting large muscles, but all it does it make you gain more water weight and it can be dangerous.
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
1363862 tn?1277836322 If you are taking in more calories than you are burning, you will gain weight. I agree with Teresa1970 that you need to figure out your calorie needs for each day, then create a deficit, in order to lose weight. In the end, it all boils down to "calories in, calories out". While it is good to eat lean protein, you also must get the complex carbs, good fats and diary to go with it. You must also make sure that you get plenty of vitamin B6 in order to process the protein.
Avatar f tn Many of us have thyroid problems , mostly hypo but maybe yours is hyper which could make you to lose weight. That is the only thing that came to my mind because my first month of really feeling sick, I was like you and lost 30 lbs in a month, I looked terrible, then my thyroid became hypo and I gained 40+ pounds. After taking the correct thyroid meds, I leveled off to where I look and feel normal. Could that be why?
Avatar f tn Following are some tips to follow to gain weight. You will take some time to gain the weight you need, but be patient. 1. Consume more calories than you burn. Choose healthy foods to add calories. Drink healthy beverages to add calories. 2. Eat healthy food frequently, 5-6 times a day - 3 larger meals and 3 smaller meals alternately. Separate them by at least 3 hours so you can digest each meal fully. Don't go without food for 5-6 hours after having a major meal.
Avatar f tn second, if you want to gain muscle, why aren't you doing weight training? And if you do weight training, because of the need for rest, you'll need more than an hour in the gym or you'll hurt yourself going too fast. It's best to alternate weight training days with aerobic days, and most gym classes are mostly aerobic or stretching.
Avatar n tn What I have found is that in some people, undiagnosed celiac will cause them to lose weight and for others, they gain weight. If you not familiar with what celiac is, its an allergy to gluten (wheat, barley, rye, etc.). If you have this and eat anything with gluten, you kill off the villi in your intestines which cause you bosy not to absord any nutrients - therefore causing many other health issues.
Avatar n tn It is very important that you take the suggested amount on the back of the bag (4oz of liquid with 2 tablespoons of Napolina) ALSO*** Drink plenty of WATER*** to stay hydrated. **Napolina makes you loose fluid weight in your body, so u have to make sure you replace it! You WILL see a difference of 10lbs after a couple of weeks... BUT Napolina isnt meant to take for an entire month. Take it for 2 weeks ONCE A MONTH.
5606554 tn?1372448980 I am trying to stay away from sugars but use honey. All the foods that I used to crave, but would make me gain weight, Icould eat now, if I could stomach it. I dont drink pops, instead I drink coconut water and juices, freshly juiced fruit if you have a juicer, and vegies too easier to digest, and lots of healthy vitamins.
Avatar f tn It helps with weight loss. Also look into supplementing with UNDENATURED whey protein powder. Make sure of the type, otherwise it won't work! Mix it in smoothies or juice or yogurt but NO BLENDER-NO HEAT. It is very specific. 20gramsx3 daily It keeps the JNK gene dormant, as it increases your Glutathione production When the JNK gene is active, disease and weight (fat,not muscle) gain occur. Avoid extremes and remember "Easy does it". Wishing you good success!
Avatar f tn Do you have any hyper symptoms? BTW, some people gain weight hypo or hyper, some lose hypo or hyper and some actually behave the way it's supposed to work. " I am at 1500 calories now with an rmr of 1850..." What jumps out at me here is that you said you've slowly increased calories. You're not nearly to 1850, yet you're gaining weight. Perhaps the RMR lies??? I've heard it's very subjective and has much to do with the skill of the person administering.
1301407 tn?1273238525 you are doing everything right the reason why you are not losing any weight is b/c muscle does weight more than fat. if you want to start seeing the scale more then do more cardio less weights and only workout 5 days a week and have 2 days of rest.
Avatar n tn What have your doctors told you about B12, how does it help you lose the weight? also what is lipo?? Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give!!
Avatar n tn Try eating "six small meals" instead of trying for the three-square. Sometimes a piece of fruit, a ginger snap (great for stomach rumbles), ice cream will go down... Substitute juices for some of the water to get some calories and nutrients... Keep doing some sort of excercise, at least walking, to try to keep the mucsle mass. Drink Ensure. Eat what you can tolerate, and if you're losing weight & very tired, make sure you're not losing...blood! Ie - are your blood counts ok?
Avatar n tn You are very welcome. The drink is a WHEY protein powder that I got at Walmart or anywhere else you might shop like that. It has a measure scoop One scoop to 1 cup water, blend while blending add a dash of jello... VOILA!! Yes it is filling...hope this works.
Avatar f tn Eating can become addictive and you get cravings that are oh so difficult to ignore. Unless you have a medical problem, you gain weight when you eat much more calories than you are burning. Is she involved in any sports? Can she play soccer or join a swim team? (hockey, basketball, etc). If you got her a dog would she walk it? I would approach the subject very gently. Tell her you love her and that you will help her. She doesn't need to feel bad about herself, everything will be ok!
Avatar f tn laxatives cause everything in your body to just run through you, which will make you dehydrated which can make you very sick! your body wont process any nutrients from what you eat, you will feel crappier than you do, and youll be on the toilet all day. you should only take laxatives if youre constipated. theres lots of meal plans online for detoxing your body. all follow the same guidelines- healthy, all natural products.
Avatar n tn This is a good weight reduction smoothie 1 ΒΌ scoops chocolate protein powder. (Any protein whey or casein protein powder that has less than 3 grams of fat and less than 3 grams of carbs will work.) I suggest buying a whey protein concentrate not isolate! As for the Cocoa, buy CocoaVia. Most cocoa brands contain to much cadmium and or lead.
427265 tn?1444080036 You can't have the same sort of goals that you would have if you weren't on treatment. But it will make you feel better and it's a good way to combat weight loss. i know it might seem impossible. Maybe it is. But for me, no matter how bad I feel, I drag myself to the gym because I've learned that a light work out is just about the only thing that will make me feel better. Good luck!
Avatar m tn make sure your Thyroid is checked periodically durring blood tests...Hypothyroid can make you gain weight and hyper loose may already know this....but i thought i'd offer it as a suggestion, to make sure the gainning of weight isn't a sign of thyroid trouble starting...hope not...another liver related issue with weight gain is edema or aeseties, but these come when the liver is in bad shape...these are signs of cirhosis beginning...
Avatar f tn I don't work out, thank you tho, I'd like to if I could gain weight in return! Lol. I'm about 100 lbs. Been struggling to gain weight for about 7 yrs. Even thro 4 kids! Its the pits! Thank you so much for your responses. Just to talk to ppl is sooo therapeutic...
Avatar f tn Weight training can help you put on good pounds. Have you tried a plain protein supplement? I like whey protein. You can make a shake with two yogurt, and a cup of milk. Should be around 500 calories of protein, with a few carbs and a little fat. Jsust what your body needs to grow muscle. You can also add fruit, natural peanut butter and real oatmeal (ground up and raw) for some extra healthy calories.
