Learning how to lose weight can be a very tricky affair, particularly when you discover the world of supplements and meal replacement shakes. Today, you are going to learn how to tell which whey protein is best for you to use.

If you get the wrong product you can end up with a supplement designed for bulking up as opposed to trimming down, so it is highly important to understand what you are looking for.

The industry is also filled with marketing hype, making it very hard for most people to get to grips with the facts on supplements. Most people get lost in the hype and don’t really know what to look for, wasting their hard earned cash on useless products they simply don’t need.

With thousands of new products hitting the market every single week, it isn’t going to stop anytime soon. So if you don’t know what to look for you had better learn quickly. The three key points below will help you do this.

* If weight loss is your goal, be sure to check the number of carbs in each serving. It needs to be quite low if your goal is fat loss.

* The number of grams of protein per serving is very important.

* Look at the first ingredient on the packaging. If it’s hydrolized whey isolate then the product contains the fastest digesting form of whey on the market. This is also normally the most expensive form, followed by isolate and concentrate respectively.

When you learn to do the three items shown above you’ll find it much easier to compare products and determine whether a supplement is really as good as it claims to be on the packaging. The main group of people affected by these choices are ladies, scared to use a meal replacement shake in case it results in weight gain.

If you are worried a product is designed for bulking up as opposed to building lean muscle, you will need to have a quick look at the carbohydrate content. If a product is designed to help you get bigger it will be packed with carbs. Ideally, given that your goal here is losing fat and getting leaner, you want a shake which is quite low in carbs.

Once you have done that, it’s time to establish the quality of the protein you have. If your product is primarily made from hydrolized whey isolate then you have the fastest digesting form on the market. It’s usually the most expensive form, too.

Furthermore, recent scientific studies have revealed that the human body can digest no more than thirty grams of protein in one go. With so many products on the market claiming to hit you with 50 grams or more, this helps you to avoid unnecessary weight gain.

Learning how to lose weight can be quite tricky, as can the world of supplements. However, with today’s three point check list you will be able to establish which whey protein is best to suit your particular goals in the gym.
