Previous | Main

If you've ever wondered how much water to use in your protein shakes, science may now have a solid answer. When you make your protein shakes, consider making them thicker by adding less water. This may help you feel less hungry while following any sort of fat-loss diet!

One study from Purdue University reported that, when subjects drank two shakes with identical nutrient profiles, they experienced significantly greater and more prolonged reductions in hunger after the thicker shake. Thick shakes could make getting through a diet easier and help you prevent a cheat.
