Protein Bars & Shakes Q & A

Dr. G's Weightloss

What is Protein?

There are three major macronutrients: protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Protein is an essential building block for your body. It’s crucial for building muscle and proper cell function. Getting sufficient protein can help maximize your weight loss goals by keeping your hunger at bay and by boosting your metabolism.

How Much Protein Do I Need?

Your protein requirements correspond to your activity level, weight, age, and any underlying conditions. Fast-growing children and athletes typically need and use more protein than older or sedentary people. As a general gauge, the average man and woman need between 45 and 55 grams of protein per day. Unfortunately, busy lifestyles can sometimes make achieving those quantities challenging. Dr. G.’s Weight Loss & Wellness helps you find easy, convenient, and delicious ways of getting sufficient metabolism-boosting protein in your diet.

How Do Protein Bars and Shakes Help Me Lose Weight?

Getting enough protein is necessary for muscle growth and fat reduction. That’s why Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness offers its own signature protein bars and shakes.

Adequate protein intake keeps your blood sugar stable and keeps you from relying on fast-burning carbohydrates and sugars, which typically lead to weight gain.

Protein bars and shakes make a great meal replacement and keep you feeling full for hours. Your weight loss specialist works closely with you to understand your needs in order to customize a protein bar and shake regimen that helps you achieve your goals.

Usually, shakes and bars are part of an established custom weight loss plan that you’re working on with a specialist at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness. The bars make it easy and convenient to keep a healthy, high protein snack at your fingertips.

What Should I Put in My Protein Shake?

It’s a common mistake to put too many sugar-laden fruits or nut butters into a protein shake. Avoid dried fruits and almond, cashew, or peanut butter with added sugars. Great options for your protein shake include unsweetened coconut, almond, or whole milk, fresh or frozen berries, avocado, kale, cucumber, and celery. The prepackaged shake powders you get at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness an easy and delicious way to regulate your protein intake.
