Proteins are often described as building blocks because that’s their primary job: They build every tissue in your body. They also carry oxygen in blood cells, and they’re essential components of enzymes and hormones.
When you’re on a low-calorie diet, you need to be careful about your protein intake. If your body is in starvation mode, it may use protein for energy and the only way to do that is by breaking down muscles.
In addition to supplying the protein you need to stay healthy, Dr. G’s protein bars and shakes can help you lose weight because of protein:
Protein also gives you a temporary boost in metabolism, as it takes more calories to digest protein compared to carbs and fats.
The only way to get Dr. G’s proprietary protein bars and shakes is by scheduling a consultation with one of the providers at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness. Their protein products are scientifically formulated to work together with Dr. G’s program by providing the nutrients you need to reach your weight loss goals. For this reason, they’re available as part of your overall physician-supervised weight loss program.
Your provider at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness determines how you should use their protein bars and shakes together with your unique weight loss plan.
Protein bars and shakes may serve as a snack, a way to supplement your diet, or a boost to help you recover following exercise or intense activities. In some cases, they may be used as a meal replacement.
It’s essential to follow your provider’s instructions about the number of Dr .G’s protein bars or shakes you should consume and when the best time is to use them. These products contain calories that can work against your weight loss efforts and lead to weight gain if you consume too many or they’re not carefully included as part of your daily calorie allowance.
