Why is LynFit Egg White Protein better for weight loss?

To start with, it's pure, natural, and all protein. That means there are virtually no carbs, no fat, and no cholesterol. So the carbs, fats, and cholesterol you save help boost your metabolism and jump-start your weight loss. It is simply the complete form of protein, standing head and shoulders above the rest. 

Since egg white protein is non-dairy and lactose-free, it's a better option for those who are lactose sensitive.

How much protein should you consume every day?  

The average person requires one (1) gram of protein per pound of lean body weight per day. Example: If you weigh 150 pounds, but you have 25 pounds of fat to lose (thin goal weight), your lean body weight would be 125 pounds. That means you require 125 grams of protein per day. If you're trying to lose weight, the leaner, the better.  

When it comes to weight loss and boosting metabolism, it's better to spread this protein throughout the day, so your body uses it vs. storing it. For example, if you eat five meals per day you would aim to have 25 grams of protein at each meal to nail your 125 grams per day of protein. 

What if you're doing the metabolic boosting plan to encourage your body to shed fat?

No worries. Simply use the egg white protein for 1-2 of your meals each day, so your body gets a variety of protein sources. This will help to boost your metabolism, and if you feel your body needs more protein, add a shake. 

Unlike foods like chicken breast, LynFit shakes won't slow weight loss the way overeating other sources can due to the higher calories and fats they contain.
*NOTE: Using different types of metabolic boosting proteins is best for boosting a sluggish metabolism and helps break up the monotony.  

Rapid weight loss and daily exercise places demands on the body. It's better to have too much of this type of protein vs. not enough so your skin stays tight and your body stays nourished. Protein is the building block of muscle, preventing body fat formation, stopping weight gain, and encouraging weight loss. 

Consuming the right amount of protein is the best way to nourish hair, skin, and nails. Egg white protein (all LynFit proteins) are perfect sources of protein for all types of diets, including gastric bypass. From chemotherapy patients to kids, world class athletes to bodybuilders, and everyone in between.  

What's the best way to use LynFit Egg White Protein?

Drink it in a smoothie. No matter what you mix it with you won't taste the egg whites. They have a deliciously smooth texture that is very different from whey, so you may have to experiment with your usual recipes to master egg whites.

Bake with it. You can also cook and bake with the egg white protein. In fact, for any recipe that calls for egg whites, you can use the egg white powder by reconstituting it. Cooking and baking burn off part of the protein, but as long as you're not consuming the egg whites cooked for every meal, you shouldn’t have to worry about it. 

Reconstituting your egg white protein powder makes it just like the liquid egg whites we all cook and bake with. You could even make an omelet with it if you'd like. Reconstituting egg whites is as simple as adding some warm water to you your egg white powder. Most of the time 2-3 tablespoons per scoop of powder is all it takes.  

Here's another idea: Add it to your coffee for a protein-packed, on-the-go, metabolic boosting breakfast!

Can't get enough protein into your kids? Mix one (1) scoop into their milk, pour over cereal or make them a smoothie. Kids also love egg white protein made into scrambled chocolate egg whites with strawberries on top.

Use your imagination. Wherever you see whey you can substitute egg whites instead. The texture may be different but the protein is still great.

The Best Protein for Weight Loss and Health


If you're not losing weight and melting off belly fat, your protein choices may be to blame. Here's the "411" on why whey protein is the best when it comes to weight loss and melting off stored fat.

Some proteins can boost metabolism and speed up weight loss, while others may slow it down and stop weight loss from occurring at all. Certain proteins have been used by people looking to add bulk and gain weight, and it's critical that you know the difference between the two, allowing you to choose the protein that's right for you, helping you reach your goals. LynFit Complete Protein is not only the best tasting whey protein, but it also provides the best health and nutrition benefits.

Protein is an essential nutrient when it comes to keeping your body healthy and maintaining our busy lifestyles; yet, most of us are deficient in it. This sets us up for lackluster health and slows our metabolism. But before you grab that pre-made (ready to drink) protein shake, you're going to want to know all of the miraculous things this nutrient can do for you and how to choose the right kind.

You'll also need to know how much and when you should consume it for maximum weight loss and health boost. More importantly, why LynFit Complete Protein does this better than any other protein you can buy. 

PREVENTS HUNGER AND KILLS CRAVINGS

When it comes to killing cravings and preventing hunger, nothing satisfies like protein. Since protein takes longer to digest it makes you feel fuller longer; great news if you're trying to lose or maintain your weight, especially if you're prone to snacking on unhealthy snacks. A recent study in Nutrition Research (please site ) also reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein reported feeling fuller and consumed

A recent study in Nutrition Research reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein daily reported feeling fuller and consumed fewer calories during the day than those who drank other forms of protein. Whey helps to prevent the blood sugar dips that signal hunger and promote cravings.

BEATS BLOAT AND MELTS BELLY FAT BEST

Whey protein manages your middle better and beats bloat while melting off that stubborn belly fat. Whey's sophisticated structure causes your body to takes calories and burn them as heat rather than storing them as fat. But that's not all; whey has been known to reduce blood sugar, which can also trigger high blood pressure, playing a critical role in decreasing and preventing blood sugar issues. including helping to

Additionally, whey helps manage diabetic blood sugar issues and helps to increase blood amino acids that prevent muscle loss, helping keep your metabolism running at optimum speed, which prevents weight gain.
*NOTE: Diabetes is serious health problem linked to obesity, heart attack, and stroke. That's why choosing the right protein shake is critical when it comes to protecting your health. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 67:749-753, 2013

HELPS PREVENT THE WEIGHT GAIN CAUSED BY STRESS

In order to lose weight, we must control our cortisol levels. Excess cortisol can prevent weight loss and make it harder to keep the pounds off. Cortisol breaks down muscle tissue which slows down our metabolic rate and increases our body fat which becomes a metabolic nightmare.

LynFit whey protein has a reputation for being the best food when it comes to preventing cortisol levels from rising.

Cortisol levels are also associated with bone loss, and while we can't prevent stress in our lives, we can do something to combat its effects — drink a LynFit Whey Protein Shake or eat a LynFit Lean Bar each day.

LYNFIT COMPLETE PROTEIN POWERS UP YOUR ENERGY BETTER THAN JUICING

Energy comes from getting the right combination of nutrients, and protein is one of the most important nutrients when it comes to sustainable energy.

While most of us tend to crave carbs when we need quick energy (that's why we tend to reach for simple carbs), we often forget that these simple carbs also send us crashing shortly after, sending us to look for more food shortly after, despite the fact that we just ate. 

It's life-changing once you remember that protein is the better choice. It takes your body longer to digest protein, and in return, it provides long lasting balanced energy, keeping you feeling full, helping to prevent hunger and cravings for the wrong kind of foods.

Studies show that eating or drinking whey protein daily as a part of a diet that's low in fat and cholesterol, can help maintain a healthy heart. After all, your heart is a muscle too.

SO CLEAN IT FEEDS LEAN MUSCLE

Protein is the fuel of choice for your muscles and it helps preserve this precious tissue while promoting fat burning. Everyday activities such as carrying grocery bags and walking all take muscle.

Muscles need the specific amino acids found in "complete" protein to perform, as well as repair after a workout. Additionally, chronic everyday stress, illness, or injury increases your protein needs. Bottom line, our body can't heal properly unless we provide the right kind of nutrients that help it repair, hence preserving the muscle.

LynFit Whey Protein is made from the highest quality source of whey protein, all thanks to its purity and the fact that it doesn't contain added carbs, fillers, fats, or other inferior ingredients such as dairy or vegetarian sources.

How do you know if your protein does all of this? That's simple — if it doesn't say LynFit, it probably doesn't, especially if you purchased it in a store.
LynFit Tip: Your body’s ability to absorb protein and other nutrients is at its peak shortly after you work out or any type physical activity, such as mowing the lawn, shopping, or simply cleaning the house. If you drink a Protein Shake or eat a Lean Bar you'll help your body to be more toned and healthy so you can keep moving and look good doing it.

HELPS SLOW THE AGING PROCESS

Protein helps build muscle, and as we age, we tend to lose muscle tone and strength. But, that can be prevented if you eat sufficient amounts of the right kind of protein every day. Consuming the right amount of protein, spaced throughout your day, is the best way to prevent muscle loss from happening in the first place. And it might also slow down the loss of muscle mass when you are sick or under stress.

It's recommended that we consume 24–27 grams of lean protein at each meal and combine that with weight lifting /resistance training two times per week to maintain strength, boost health and metabolism for the rest of your life.

HELPS BOOST MOOD, EASE ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION, WHILE BOOSTING IMMUNITY

Whey protein contains the exact amount of amino acids needed to increase levels of serotonin and regulate the hormones that can wreak havoc on our body, causing symptoms like depression, anxiety, and illness.

We are what we eat every day, and this is even more important when it comes to our mood and mental well-being.

Who needs whey? Everyone!

Kids need protein as they grow for strong muscles and bones (including teeth). Protein is more important for your kid's development than you might realize. But just because they need it doesn't mean you'll get them to eat it. That's where LynFit Protein Shakes and Lean Bars come in.

They can help kids, especially active ones, or kids that suffer from stress, to get enough of the right kind of protein. LynFit's line of Complete Protein products is delicious and nutrient-packed. LynFit Shakes and Lean Bars are simply the best choices. Martha Stewart was my taste tester, and she knows a thing or two about good taste.

The latest research shows that higher levels of protein are needed for adults age 65+ to prevent muscle loss that accelerates with aging. It's suggested that older adults double up their protein intake for better health.  Adding these sophisticated forms of protein is the best way to boost health while keeping your cholesterol and blood pressure in check.

A LynFit Whey Protein Shake or Lean Bar a day is the best way to keep the doctor away. Apples can't even compare!
