Abstract Dudgeon, WD, Kelley, EP, and Scheett, TP. Effect of whey protein in conjunction with a caloric-restricted diet and resistance training. J Strength Cond Res 31(5): 1353–1361, 2017—Caloric-restricted weight loss, especially rapid weight loss, results from a decrease in both lean and fat mass (FM). The goal for many is to lose FM while retaining lean body mass (LBM) and muscular performance thus many turn to supplements. Sixteen resistance-trained men (24 ± 1.6 years of age) completed a 4… 
In a single-blind, matched group design: branched-chain amino acid supplementation and resistance training maintains lean body mass during a caloric restricted diet
Results show that BCAA supplementation in trained individuals performing resistance training while on a hypocaloric diet can maintain lean mass and preserve skeletal muscle performance while losing fat mass.
Nutritional Recommendations for Physique Athletes
Physiological and psychological factors are covered, and potential best-practice guidelines are provided for disordered eating and body image concerns since physique athletes present with higher incidences of these issues, which may be potentially exacerbated by certain traditional physique practices.

Whey Protein Supplementation During Resistance Training Augments Lean Body Mass
Daily supplementation with whey was more effective than soy protein or isocaloric carbohydrate control treatment conditions in promoting gains in lean body mass, highlighting the importance of protein quality as an important determinant ofLean body mass responses to resistance training.
The effect of whey protein supplementation with and without creatine monohydrate combined with resistance training on lean tissue mass and muscle strength.
M Males that supplemented with whey protein while resistance training demonstrated greater improvement in knee extension peak torque and lean tissue mass than males engaged in training alone.
Whey protein supplementation preserves postprandial myofibrillar protein synthesis during short-term energy restriction in overweight and obese adults.
It is concluded that whey protein supplementation attenuated the decline in postprandial rates of MPS after weight loss, which may be of importance in the preservation of lean mass during longer-term weight loss interventions.
A randomized trial of protein supplementation compared with extra fast food on the effects of resistance training to increase metabolism
Resistance training could potentially decrease the risk of obesity by induction of increased RMR and lean body-mass similarly when based on either an increased energy-intake or protein supplement.
Effect of whey and soy protein supplementation combined with resistance training in young adults.
It is concluded that young adults who supplement with protein during a structured resistance training program experience minimal beneficial effects in lean tissue mass and strength.
Effects of resistance training and protein plus amino acid supplementation on muscle anabolism, mass, and strength
Ten-wks of resistance training with 20 g protein and amino acids ingested 1 h before and after exercise is more effective than carbohydrate placebo in up-regulating markers of muscle protein synthesis and anabolism along with subsequent improvements in muscle performance.
The Effects of Soy and Whey Protein Supplementation on Acute Hormonal Responses to Resistance Exercise in Men
It is demonstrated that 14 days of supplementation with soy protein does appear to partially blunt serum testosterone and whey influences the response of cortisol following an acute bout of resistance exercise by blunting its increase during recovery.
Heavy resistance training and peri-exercise ingestion of a multi-ingredient ergogenic nutritional supplement in males: effects on body composition, muscle performance and markers of muscle protein synthesis.
In response to 42 days of heavy resistance training and either SizeOn Maximum Performance or protein/carbohydrate/creatine supplementation, similar increases in muscle mass and strength in both groups occurred; however, the increases were not different between supplement groups.
The effects of 8 weeks of whey or rice protein supplementation on body composition and exercise performance
Both whey and rice protein isolate administration post resistance exercise improved indices of body composition and exercise performance; however, there were no differences between the two groups.
Effects of Whey Protein and Resistance Exercise on Body Composition: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
The current body of literature supports the use of WP, either as a supplement combined with resistance exercise or as part of a weight loss or weight maintenance diet, to improve body composition parameters.
