What do you think about the use of whey protein in your diet? Is it about he althy eating and the possibility of losing a few pounds? Do whey proteins have a good effect on metabolism, or is it better to stop using them?

Whey protein contains all the essential amino acids needed for proper regeneration, which makes it a wholesome source of protein. It is a high-quality protein that occurs naturally in milk.

People practicing various types of sports (including bodybuilding and fitness), who have a greater need for protein, show particular interest in whey-based supplements. People who are intolerant to milk proteins and lactose should be careful with this type of supplement. In such people there is a risk of mainly intestinal disorders, such as: gas, abdominal pain, excessive gas, etc.

If you are following a balanced diet with an appropriate or increased protein content, I consider such supplementation unnecessary. If you do not exercise competitively in the gym and do not do heavy strength training, due to which you might need an increased amount of protein in your diet, then such supplementation is unnecessary. Whey protein provides essential amino acids and helps repair and rebuild muscle tissue, which is why it's good for athletes. By itself, there are no slimming or metabolism-boosting effects.
