Scientists have found a simple trick that can make you burn more calories during a work-out: Take a hit of whey protein before hitting the weights. Researchers at Michigan State University found that when they gave subjects a dose of 18 grams of whey protein, those subjects burned 8.5 percent more calories the day after the training session. This seems like the coveted win-win for body composition. A pre-workout whey beverage will also help preserve muscle mass and kick-start protein synthesis, meaning these well-timed grams of pro-tein will get you to burn fat and build muscle at the same time.
