Protein is a key success factor in weight loss because it can help keep your metabolism up and hunger at bay. Protein helps you to manage your weight in two important ways:
Protein-rich shakes, meals and snacks help control hunger because protein is digested slowly and it sends a message to the brain that the body is full and satisfied.
Eating the right amount of protein daily helps, maintain and build lean body mass as you lose weight, which in turn keeps up metabolism up, so you continue to burn fat.
Protein intake helps to control appetite and maintain lean body mass.
The more lean body you have, the higher your metabolism and the more calories you’ll burn. Eating the right amount of protein for your body helps control your appetite and build and maintain lean muscle mass, thus making weight loss easier.
Protein + healthy carbohydrates = success.
The right amount of protein combined with healthy fruits and a more balanced approach to losing weight.
You need protein to stay strong and healthy.
If you don’t eat enough of it every day, your body will steal protein from your muscles and organs.
Remember, not all protein is created equal.
15% to 35% of your diet should be lean protein. Some sources of protein also have a lot of fat and should be avoided.
Why Protein Matters
Your muscle mass works like a furnace, burning calories and stored fat for energy. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism, the faster you burn calories and the more quickly you lose unwanted kilos. Eating plenty of protein daily is essential to maintaining your muscle mass for good health, energy and effective weight management.
