The short answer is "it depends", but for the long answer (and the one we think you're looking for) keep reading! 💪😜👍
While you don't have to follow any particular diet to benefit from using Organic Whey, you can maximize your desired results by incorporating Organic Whey into an overall lifestyle plan. This plan would ideally include diet as well as movement and mindset practices.
So what if I just want to lose some weight and build some muscle?
Regardless of what your specific goal is, we always recommend basing your diet on whole foods and whole-food derived supplements. In simple terms, these are foods that you can identify on sight, feature a minimum of natural ingredients, and don't require a chemistry degree to understand.
For fat loss: You'll want to create a "catabolic environment" (ie. one in which body tissues are being broken down) and to do this, you'll need to create a general calorie deficit of approximately 250-500 kcals per day. This can be accomplished by either eating less (reducing intake) or moving more (increasing expenditure) and if followed correctly, you can expect to lose about .5-1lb per week.
For muscle building: You'll want to create an "anabolic environment" (ie. one in which body tissues are being built up) and to do this you'll want to create a general calorie surplus of about 250-500 kcals per day. This can be accomplished by eating more (increasing intake) or moving less (decreasing expenditure) and if followed correctly, you can expect to gain about .5-1lb per week.
You mentioned "movement" and "mindset" as part of an overall lifestyle plan, what would that look like specifically?
