Pea Protein for Weight Control

Why Do Dieters Use It?*

Pea protein is sometimes promoted as a weight-loss supplement that increases metabolism, reduces appetite, and helps control blood sugar levels. People who use pea protein say it reduces their sugar cravings and helps them feel full and eat less. Vegetarians and vegans often use pea protein to help them reach the protein intake of a high-protein, weight-loss diet. It is also safe for people who can’t use dairy, egg, or soy-based proteins due to allergies or sensitivities.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Weight management experts often recommend a high-protein diet to help overweight and obese people lose weight and keep it off. Vegetarians and vegans often find it easier to reach protein intake goals for weight loss by adding a supplement such as pea protein. Pea protein’s high levels of branched-chain amino acids might make it particularly helpful for preserving muscle mass and stimulating fat loss during weight loss.
*Dieters and weight-management advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience. These are individual opinions and testimonials that may or may not be supported by controlled clinical studies or published scientific articles.
