Can Soy Really Help You Lose Weight?
A significant number of research studies support claims that soy protein consumption can help you lose weight. Soy protein is an excellent source of high-quality protein (compared to some other protein sources) that can help you build lean muscle mass. Plus, soy protein provides a good source of energy from calories and branched-chain amino acids. When combined with exercise and a healthy diet, soy protein makes an excellent "partner" in a successful diet plan.
1) Soy protein helps you feel full and satisfied.
Recent medical studies show protein helps you feel less hungry, and helps you feel fuller longer.1,2 This helps reduce the urge to snack between meals and late at night - two major causes of weight gain and dietary failures.
2) Soy protein has a low-glycemic index.
Not only is soy protein low in carbs and fat, but it also has a low-glycemic index which means it won't cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels, compared to glucose, after consumption.3 Recent clinical studies confirm Revival has a low-glycemic index.4 We have low-glycemic protein bars, and protein shakes that come in your choice of sweetener including fructose, unsweetened, and sucralose.
3) Soy protein is a complete protein.
Soy protein is the only plant protein that is a complete protein, which means it contains all 9 essential amino acids in the right balance to meet your body's needs. This means you get the highest quality protein available, with less fat and fewer calories than many meats. And, you don't have to worry about genetic modifications because Revival is made from genetically-pure soybeans (i.e. non-genetically modified or "non-GMO").
How do I lose weight with Revival Soy protein?
It's simple. Enjoy a naturally-concentrated (6x) Revival protein bar or protein shake containing 20 grams of protein once or twice daily with a multivitamin in place of a meal to reduce your overall calorie intake. Use Revival Baked Soy Protein Chips, Protein-Packed Soy Pasta, Crunchy Soy Nuts and other protein snacks to boost protein intake, decrease between-meal/ late-night snacking & increase energy (protein is a good source of caloric energy). Use as part of any diet plan.
Weight loss tips for success: exercise (e.g. a regular walking plan). Pack in the protein to reduce hunger. Eat at least 5 servings of antioxidant-rich fruits & vegetables. Stick to complex carbs and whole grains. Get 25-30 g of soluble fiber daily. Reduce fat intake. Eat smaller portions.
Average Time Until Results: 1 week
