Whey Protein Plus Weight Training Reduces Abdominal Fat

Whey protein was superior to carbohydrate or carbohydrate plus whey protein as a post-exercise supplement for decreasing abdominal fat— according to researchers from Finland. Recreationally active men with no weight-training experience trained with weights two to three times per week, and took one of three supplements after each workout. While the study was interesting, it is of little practical value to serious weight trainers. Protein intake was approximately the same in all groups, even though to the groups were taking protein supplements. Also, the subjects had no weight-training experience. It takes beginners months or even years to learn to train intensely. The initial phases of weight training mainly involve motor learning, and do don’t typically overload the muscles very much.
