    Obese men and women who for the first six (6) months replaced two (2) meals per day with a meal replacement shake containing 215 calories, consisting of 15 grams of protein from whey protein, and then for the next six (6) months replaced one (1) meal per day, lost an average of 21.8 pounds in one (1) year according to a recent study from researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Adelaide, South Australia.


    Subjects: 127 people— 95 women and 32 men, average body weight 210 lbs, BMI of 33

    The study involved 127 people— 95 women and 32 men—who, on average, weighed 210 pounds, with a body mass index (BMI) of 33.4 (obese), and who were, on average, 50-years-old.

    Meal Replacements: 215 calories and 15 grams of protein

    For the first six months, they replaced two meals per day with meal replacement shakes containing glycomacropeptide-enriched whey protein isolate.

    For the second six months, they replaced one meal per day.

    Each meal replacement shake contained 215 calories and 15 grams of protein.

    Glycomacropeptide-enriched whey protein

    Glycomacropeptide-enriched whey protein did NOT improve weight loss more than skim milk powder

    They used glycomacropeptide-enriched whey protein because glycomacropeptide “is a peptide that has been shown to stimulate release of cholecystokinin, which may promote satiety” according to the paper.

    Comment: The glycomacropeptide did NOT improve weight loss more than simply using 15 grams of skim milk powder, so if you are interested in doing this yourself, any whey protein supplement will work just as well.

    “Meal replacements containing GMP [glycomacropeptide] had no additional effect on the overall sustained 12-[month] weight loss of 10 kg,” the authors concluded.
