    Too early to start Whey Protein?

    Hello guys, I been one full week so far on my workout routine to transform myself. And while I've read that whey protein can help with LBM, I have some friends of mine saying it's too early to start and that I should lose alot more fat weight first. I've took two scoops already for today after I worked out at the gym for an hour and fifteen minutes.

    Whey is simply another form of protein to ingest. One of the benefits is that it is solely protein (for the most part, some wheys have a few grams of carbs and fats added in). It is also a very quickly digested and absorbed protein source. If it fits into your diet, there's no problem.

    Whey is just going to be another calorie/macro source for you. It's convenient if you're on the go a lot or enjoy baking/making things in the kitchen with it. It comes with another benefit of being lower in fat and carbs than some other protein sources like jande said. Downside- it's not nearly as satiating as a giant chicken breast imo. Liquid calories are good, but whole foods are better. Use it to fill in the gaps if you need it, but in a calorie deficit I like whole foods to keep me fuller longer!

    Whey protein helps supplement protein intake you do not get via whole food.
    When in times you cannot get a whole food meal you can use whey protein to help reach your protein minimums for the day that is the purpose of whey protein..

    Your OVERALL caloric intake is what determins your goal and progress not whey protein or a fat burner, or CLA etc.

    Not too early. If you can't meet your macros from whole foods, whey is a great alternative!
