Healthy weight: It´s all about quality – not quantity

Around the world, more than 3.8 billion adults (52%) had an unhealthy weight​ in 2014 – 39% were overweight and 13% were obese. A healthy weight is not about the quantity​ of the kilos in relation to height, but about the quality​ of these kilos in relation to the body composition.

A healthy weight thus refers to a healthy body composition, where a healthy balance between the fat and fat-free masses (mainly muscle) in the body exists.

A growing body of science has shown that the introduction of higher protein diets, that include high quality proteins​, like whey, help support weight management and improvements in body composition (e.g. loss of body fat and/or preservation of muscle).
