Low Carb Protein Shake

Tasty, high-quality protein shake based on milk protein, egg albumin and whey protein. Suitable as a protein and fibre-rich meal for a calorie-reduced diet, especially with a reduced proportion of carbohydrates (low carb). Ideal for supplementing and increasing the protein content of a meal in combination with salad, fruit and vegetables.

LOW CARB PROTEIN SHAKE by SPONSER® has a high biological value thanks to the high-quality milk and egg protein. The protein sources saturate in the long term and support the maintenance and build-up of muscle mass. This is particularly important in phases of reduced calorie intake to counteract increased loss of muscle mass. The functional ingredients L-carnitine and choline support the fat metabolism. One serving contains 300 mg L-carnitine from 100% pure CarniPure® as well as 2.5 g soluble dietary fibres, which provide additional saturation. Supplemented with vitamins and minerals.

Available in three different flavours. Also available as a practical portion sachet to take away.

Overview of SPONSER protein powders

Protein fulfils many physiological functions in the body. Proteins not only play a decisive role in the development, maintenance and recovery of muscles. They are also present in the entire structure of the human body: in the skin, in muscles, nails, bones, ligaments, and other tissues. Hormones and enzymes also consist mainly of protein.

Why is it necessary to consume protein in food?
Protein is formed from chains of amino acids. These are distinguished as non-essential and essential. The human body cannot produce the latter itself, so they must be supplied through food. Some amino acids are also regarded as conditionally essential (formerly semi-essential) because the body cannot produce them sufficiently by itself in certain situations (e.g. in childhood, during healing processes or growth).

Who benefits from an increased protein intake?
Because proteins play a central role in muscle building, it is obvious that during intensive physical training, such as strength or endurance exercise, the protein needs increase. However, proteins are not only important in strength training and in the recovery of endurance athletes. They also play an important role in weight loss: a protein-rich diet, thanks to its satiating effect, helps to save calories and achieve the desired weight more easily. People who are active in fitness, strength and endurance sports benefit from an increased protein intake compared to general intake recommendations.

Which protein for which purpose?
It may be relatively difficult to cover one's increased protein requirements solely through the general diet. For this reason, SPONSER® offers a wide range of high-quality protein preparations in various dosage forms: powder, bars, shakes, mixable, ready-to-drink, lactose-free, vegan, etc. Depending on individual preferences and situational needs, the most appropriate protein powder can be chosen accordingly.

How to lose fat

How to lose fat and build up muscles

If you want to reduce your weight and body fat percentage, you must primarily achieve a negative energy balance. Basically there are two possibilities for this, ideally in combination:

1. increase calorie output = additional physical activity
2. minimise caloric intake

Increase calorie output: strength training or endurance training?
Physical activity should not only be a pure means to increase energy output, but ideally should also include specific strength training for the purpose of building muscle mass. Since muscles burn more calories than fat tissue even at rest, increased muscle mass results in a higher basal metabolic rate or daily calorie requirement. Furthermore, it is now well proven that so-called High Intensity Interval Trainings (HIIT) are more effective than moderate long-term endurance units in terms of absolute calorie burning and fat reduction. HIIT is characterized by short, intensive intervals of e.g. 10 x 60 sec at 90% of the maximum heart rate, with a 60 sec break each. It apparently does not matter whether you train on empty energy stores or in a satiated state, because the calorie burning after training remains increased for a longer period of time («afterburning effect»). A balanced diet that is both high in protein and low in carbohydrates should be practised at the same time. In contrast to long endurance units, HIIT can be trained much more time-efficient.

Reduce caloric intake: triple effect of increased protein intake
On the nutritional side, the simplest and most effective approach is to increase the protein content in the diet. Nowadays, there is a wealth of clinical data that prove the satiating, muscle-preserving and calorie-burning (thermogenic) effect of protein.

• Compared to fat or carbohydrates, protein requires more energy for digestion: about 20-30% of the calories from protein are required for its digestion and burned as heat (thermogenesis). With carbohydrates, this effect counts only approx. 5-10% of its caloric content.
• Protein is digested more slowly than carbohydrates, which prolongs the satiety feeling and keeps insulin levels lower. This in turn promotes fat metabolism.
• Protein supports the building and maintenance of muscle mass. Since proteins are also used by the body as a source of energy when total energy balance is negative, a percentage increase in protein intake during a diet is all the more important.
• An increase in protein intake is even more important for people on a vegetarian or vegan diet. Because of the lower value of vegetable protein compared to animal protein, a combination of several sources and a slightly higher intake is necessary.

Implementation of nutritional measures in everyday life
Our most important recommendation: no radical goals and measures! Gentle and flexibly manageable changes are most sustainable. Further adjustments can be made successively as required. Start with the following or similar measures:

• Reduce carbohydrates: minimise your carbohydrate side dish several times a week, and eat more salad and/or vegetables instead. Be prudent with carbohydrates in general and fast sugars in particular, as they are not very satiating and also affect insulin levels, which has a negative effect on fat burning.
• High-quality protein source: Always include quality protein in all main meals. This can be dairy products, meat, fish, but also combined vegetable sources.
• Dietary fibres: A high fibre content (lettuce, mushrooms, pulses, wholemeal cereals and many vegetables) supports satiety and also digestion.
• Replace 2 to 4 meals per week with a protein shake, supplemented with a portion of salad or vegetables. Ideal in the evening.
• Plan your diet with convenient, but appropriate snacks. Avoid sugary snacks between meals and try to replace them with a protein shake or protein bar instead. If you do have a hunger attack, have something suitable ready (e.g. nuts, PROTEIN LOW CARB BAR).
• Vegetables instead of fruits. Fruits are also healthy, of course, but contain a lot of sugar. Prefer raw vegetables instead (tomatoes, peppers, etc.)
• Minimise carbohydrates in the evening. Try to avoid carbohydrates late in the evening. A late meal should instead be rich in protein, but may well also contain fat (e.g. protein shake, cheese, nuts).

These gentle, adaptable measures provide the flexibility to react to cravings, invitations, lapses, etc. Such small steps are also easier to follow than crash diets because only minor behavioural changes are required, and no feelings of hunger are needed. Like this you can slowly but steadily change your diet and find your individually fitting solution.

Conclusion: Combined nutrition and training strategy
Weight loss should be achieved through a combination of dietary changes and increased activity, which will lead to a corresponding change in behaviour for long-term success. The new behaviour patterns must fit you and your everyday life, ultimately becoming part of your lifestyle! Only a permanent (lifelong) change protects you from the yo-yo effect.

Minimise your caloric intake

How to increase the protein content in your nutrition with SPONSER

There are two ways to reduce your weight and body fat percentage, ideally in combination. You increase your calorie output with additional physical activity. And you minimise caloric intake. The simplest and most effective approach is to increase the protein content in your nutrition. Nowadays, there is a wealth of clinical data that prove the satiating, muscle-preserving and calorie-burning (thermogenic) effect of protein.

Slow digestion, increased satiety
Casein, the largest protein fraction in milk protein, is considered to be particularly satiating because, due to its gelling effect in the digestive tract, it is digested more slowly. Casein-containing protein shakes such as MULTI PROTEIN, CASEIN or LOW CARB PROTEIN SHAKE are therefore particularly suitable as a side dish or the main course of a meal as well. It is also recommended to take such a slow-protein shake as a late meal before going to bed, because they provide a long-lasting influx of amino acids into the blood, and thus reduce the nightly catabolic muscle breakdown phase without hindering lipolysis (fat breakdown).

LOW CARB PROTEIN SHAKE
To support a diet as part of weight management. To be taken with vegetables and/or salad after training or with a main meal.
• Satiating meal: high casein and fibre content
• High-quality protein to compensate for muscle loss with reduced calorie intake
• Prebiotic dietary fibres to support the intestinal flora
• L-carnitine for optimal burning of fatty acids
• Choline to support normal fat metabolism

VEGAN PROTEIN
Alternative for vegans.
• High-quality protein shake based on quinoa, sunflower seeds, peas and rice
•100% vegan

PROTEIN LOW CARB BAR
As a satiating snack in between.
• High protein bar
• Only 2 g net carbs
• High in fibres

Protein intake

ISSN recommendations on protein intake for healthy, exercising individuals

The International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) provides an objective and critical overview on protein intake for healthy, exercising individuals. Based on the currently available literature, the ISSN has defined the following 13 positions, which are commented by Yvonne Forster, SPONSER® nutritionist and food sciences engineer:

• «An acute exercise stimulus, particularly resistance exercise, and protein ingestion both stimulate muscle protein synthesis (MPS) and are synergistic when protein consumption occurs before or after resistance exercise.»

• «For building muscle mass and for maintaining muscle mass through a positive muscle protein balance, an overall daily protein intake in the range of 1.4–2.0 g protein/kg body weight/day (g/kg/d) is sufficient for most exercising individuals, a value that falls in line within the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range published by the Institute of Medicine for protein.»

Comment: The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a minimum intake of 0.8 g protein per kg body weight per day, which is often contradictory to the significantly higher doses of ISSN. It must be taken into account that the WHO values are always based on minimum requirements - also politically justified and influenced by ethical-ecological principles.

• «There is novel evidence that suggests higher protein intakes (>3.0 g/kg/d) may have positive effects on body composition in resistance-trained individuals (i.e., promote loss of fat mass).»

Comment: With an intake of >3 g protein per kg body weight per day, a diet has to be considered protein dominant. Since proteins have a very satiating effect, the general diet can be designed according to the «low carb» principle. In this case you should refrain from eating snacks containing carbohydrates. If a weight reduction is in the foreground, SPONSER® recommends the LOW CARB PROTEIN SHAKE. This protein shake additionally contains dietary fibres which also have a satiating effect and have a positive influence on our microbiome.

• «Recommendations regarding the optimal protein intake per serving for athletes to maximize MPS are mixed and are dependent upon age and recent resistance exercise stimuli. General recommendations are 0.25 g of a high-quality protein per kg of body weight, or an absolute dose of 20–40 g.»

Comment: SPONSER® designs the protein shakes generally with approx. 20-25 g protein per portion. The protein shakes can be taken with water or milk. If taken with water, increase the amount of powder. Exact recommendations for use are indicated on the packaging.

• «Acute protein doses should strive to contain 700–3000 mg of leucine and/or a higher relative leucine content, in addition to a balanced array of the essential amino acids (EAAs).»

Comment: AMINO EAA tablets from the SPONSER® range are particularly suitable for targeted amino acids intake. WHEY PROTEIN is naturally rich in BCAA (branch-chained amino acids) and therefore also rich in L-leucine.

• «These protein doses should ideally be evenly distributed, every 3–4 h, across the day.»

Comment: This distribution results in approx. 5 protein portions, considering the food-free sleep phase. Usually lunch and dinner are hardly a problem to reach the recommended amount of protein. Breakfast and late evening meals before bed rest are often insufficient. WHEY PROTEIN, which can be added to any smoothies or muesli, is suitable for enriching breakfast. CASEIN is recommended for late meals. Casein has a slower emptying time from the stomach due to its gelling property. This ensures a continuous flow of amino acids throughout the night, which minimises the catabolic night phase. MULTI PROTEIN, which also contains 2/3 microfiltered casein, is a valuable alternative.

• «The optimal time period during which to ingest protein is likely a matter of individual tolerance, since benefits are derived from pre- or post-workout ingestion; however, the anabolic effect of exercise is long-lasting (at least 24 h), but likely diminishes with increasing time post-exercise.»

• «While it is possible for physically active individuals to obtain their daily protein requirements through the consumption of whole foods, supplementation is a practical way of ensuring intake of adequate protein quality and quantity, while minimizing caloric intake, particularly for athletes who typically complete high volumes of training.»

• «Rapidly digested proteins that contain high proportions of essential amino acids (EAAs) and adequate leucine, are most effective in stimulating MPS.»

Comment: AMINO EAA are tablets with free-form essential amino acids that are suitable for a targeted EAA intake, as well as for supplementing or optimizing the protein intake from the general diet.

• «Different types and quality of protein can affect amino acid bioavailability following protein supplementation.»

Comment: The bioavailability of amino acids and proteins depends on the dosage, the type of protein and, if given, the degree of hydrolysis. Vegetable protein sources such as soy, peas, etc. are not always complete in their amino acid profile. For this reason, vegan meals should combine different vegetable protein sources. VEGAN PROTEIN from SPONSER® contains a broad mix of vegetable protein sources with a very broad amino acid profile resulting in a high biological value. Nowadays, hydrolysed (predigested) proteins are also available on the market. This means that the complex protein structure is destroyed and the body requires less digestive work. Particularly sophisticated products therefore contain a mix of high-quality intact protein sources such as protein isolate, protein hydrolysate and free amino acids, as is the case in PREMIUM WHEY HYDRO, for example.

• «Athletes should consider focusing on whole food sources of protein that contain all of the EAAs (i.e., it is the EAAs that are required to stimulate MPS).»

Comment: Protein supplements from SPONSER® generally contain the entire spectrum of essential amino acids

• «Endurance athletes should focus on achieving adequate carbohydrate intake to promote optimal performance; the addition of protein may help to offset muscle damage and promote recovery.»

Comment: In endurance sports, the stimuli are usually set differently, but good quality training also leads to exhaustion. The protein supplements of SPONSER® are therefore also suitable for the regeneration support of endurance athletes. Since the carbohydrate supply of endurance athletes is not limited to the same extent as that of strength athletes, PRO RECOVERY with natural sweetening and moderate carbohydrate content is very suitable for regeneration support.

• «Pre-sleep casein protein intake (30–40 g) provides increases in overnight MPS and metabolic rate without influencing lipolysis.»

Comment: CASEIN is recommended for late meals as it causes a slow emptying of the stomach. This ensures a continuous flow of amino acids throughout the night, which minimises the catabolic night phase.

Protein knowledge

Protein: All you need to know as an endurance athlete

Protein fulfils many important functions in your body. To perform its tasks optimally, your body must be provided with the necessary basic protein requirements.

Daily requirements
The Swiss Society for Sports Nutrition therefore recommends athletes a daily amount of approx. 1.3-1.8 g protein per kg body weight. For a woman of 60 kg this means about 80-110 g protein per day, while a man of 80 kg body weight needs about 105-144 g dietary protein. For special phases such as strength building, diets or weight training, higher recommendations of 2.0-2.7 g protein per kilogram body weight apply. With our protein calculator the recommended daily requirements can be calculated to cover your individual needs.

» download infographic (PDF)

Timing of intake
The body protein is in a dynamic equilibrium. It is constantly built up and broken down. This is called anabolism or catabolism. Therefore, you are dependent on a regular intake. For optimal protein synthesis, about 20-30 g of protein should be consumed every 3-4 hours.

Protein sources and quality
Ideally, you already cover your protein requirements with the general diet. However, as time-consuming and disadvantageous for various reasons it can be (logistics, timing, handling), protein-enriched food and supplements offer a convenient complementary alternative. It is worth paying attention to high-quality products and trustworthy sources that guarantee the best protein quality and functionality.
