Whey protein and essential amino acids promote the reduction of adipose tissue
Weight loss strategies for obese, elderly individuals face multifaceted clinical challenges as the mortality risk of muscle loss may exceed the potential benefits of weight loss.
This study suggest that supplementation with whey protein and EAAs during caloric restriction-induced weight loss can simultaneously reduce body fat while increasing muscle protein synthesis for maintaining muscle mass.
