Can protein help you lose weight?

Yes. Research suggests consuming 25-30 g of quality protein at each meal may benefit weight loss by improving energy metabolism, protein synthesis, and appetite control.

Given this, the best time to drink protein shakes for weight loss is whenever you find it most difficult to get 25-30 g of protein at mealtime. For most Americans, this is most likely in the morning, as evidence suggests protein consumption at breakfast is generally well below the 25-30 g/meal mark.

If you’re trying to lose weight and are not getting at least 25-30 g of protein at breakfast, drinking a protein shake in the morning may be most beneficial for weight loss!
