High protein intake is key to dropping body fat. Here’s an easy and delicious way to do it.

That scoop of protein you put in your blender or shaker cup isn’t just helping you build muscle — it can help you lose weight, too!

Prioritizing protein is at the heart of every diet and meal plan I create, whether the primary goal is to build muscle or maximize fat loss (or both).

My rule of thumb for protein intake is to consume at least 1 gram per pound of body weight per day. If you’re 200 pounds, that’s 200 grams of protein every day; 175 pounds, 175 grams, and so on.

Yes, that’s a lot of protein, and most people find it damn near impossible to get that much through whole food sources like eggs, chicken, beef, fish, and dairy. That’s a ton of dense, heavy foods to eat!

That’s where protein powders like Pro JYM come into play. Having a hard time reaching 200 grams every day? No problem — get 150 grams from whole foods, then get the rest with just two delicious scoops of Pro JYM (which provides 24 grams of high-quality protein per scoop). Or, stop at 100 grams with whole foods and have four scoops of Pro JYM.

How Does Protein Help With Fat Loss?

The link between high protein and losing weight is lost on most people, but when you understand the science behind it, it’s a pretty straightforward concept.

High protein intake boosts metabolic rate, which in turn burns more calories throughout the day. Research has shown that a high-protein meal can boost energy expenditure by up to 20%.

Eating a meal high in protein also increases satiety – in other words, it makes you feel fuller, which will reduce your desire to keep eating and overconsuming calories.

Going big on protein supports muscle repair and growth, too. This is a huge factor when trying to lose fat. Muscle tissue has a high metabolic activity; the more muscle you have, the more calories you’ll burn at rest.

Why Pro JYM is the Best Protein Powder for Your Goals

Not all protein powders are created equal. Look for a blend that offers a mix of fast- and slow-digesting proteins, which provides a steady release of amino acids to your muscles.

Pro JYM is exactly that. It contains a precise blend of whey protein isolate (WPI), micellar casein, and milk protein isolate to ensure your muscles are getting quality amino acids throughout the day to optimize repair and growth.

How To Add Pro JYM To Your Diet

Here are some simple ways to add Pro JYM into your daily routine:

  • Pre-Workout: Have a scoop of Pro JYM (mixed in cold water or milk) within an hour before your workout so that the amino acids start getting to your muscles while you train.
  • Post-Workout Shake: Consume a protein shake with 1-2 scoops of Pro JYM within 30 minutes after your workout to kickstart muscle recovery.
  • Snacks: Use Pro JYM as a high-protein snack between meals, again mixing it in either water or milk (dairy or plant-based). If you want that snack to function as a nutritionally complete small meal, accompany the Pro JYM with a handful of almonds (healthy fats) and a piece of fruit (healthy carbs); you can even combine these foods in a blender for a delicious smoothie.
  • Recipe Boost: Add Pro JYM to your pancake mix or bowl of oatmeal for an added dose of protein and a flavor boost.
