Protein Bars & Shakes Q & A

Dr. G's Weightloss

Why is Protein Important During Weight Loss?

Protein plays several important roles that support weight loss, which is why it’s so critical to get enough protein when you’re shedding extra pounds. To begin, protein helps you feel more satiated when you eat, controlling your hunger and helping you consume fewer calories.

Protein also requires more calories to digest than other types of nutrition. In fact, the energy your body needs to digest protein effectively reduces the number of usable calories left over for other purposes.

Research shows that high protein intake helps you burn more calories, even when you’re asleep. It also boosts your metabolism. When you consider all these benefits, adding more protein to your diet is a great way to help lose weight.

How Can I Incorporate More Protein Into My Daily Diet?

Eating protein-rich foods is an important part of your weight loss program. You’ll receive a customized nutrition plan that includes plenty of high-quality, lean proteins.

Modern lifestyles can make it difficult to get the right amount of protein every day. That’s where protein shakes and bars come in. These convenient and tasty products help you keep your protein intake high, even when you’re too busy for a full meal.

Are Protein Bars and Shakes Right for My Needs?

Protein shakes and bars are a great tool for many, but if used improperly they can slow your weight loss progress. Protein bars and shakes are a great option for you if:

  • You’ve eliminated protein-rich foods from your diet
  • You’re recovering from an injury and want to speed healing
  • You’re working out more than normal and hoping to build muscle


During your appointments, your provider discusses how protein bars and shakes can fit into your weight loss program.

Can Protein Bars and Shakes Be Used for Meal Replacement?

In some cases, protein bars and shakes can act as meal replacements, but you should always check with your provider before making any significant alterations to your diet plan. In most cases, protein bars and shakes are consumed as part of your larger dietary program, and in conjunction with healthy physical activity.
