Want to Lose Weight? Add More Protein!

In truth, adding more protein to your diet is probably one of the easiest and most effective ways to start losing weight and to start burning body fat.

Studies have shown that by eating protein, it can help to reduce your appetite which in turn will stop you from overeating.

Protein helps you feel full.

This is because it activates the body’s signals that curb appetite, which reduces cravings and overeating.

Therefore, it really makes sense that you start your day with a high-protein breakfast. The results will speak for themselves.

What Should You Eat For Breakfast?

Many people find that they just don’t feel like eating first thing in the morning. If you fall into that category the problem is you can tend to feel hungry mid-morning and end up reaching for a carb fest with your cup of tea or coffee.

So you understand what’s happening when you do that? Carbohydrates convert to glucose (which is just another name for sugar!).  This affects your blood sugar levels, which then, causes a spike in your insulin levels. Insulin, by the

Carbohydrates convert to glucose (which is just another name for sugar!). This affects your blood sugar levels, which then, causes a spike in your insulin levels. Insulin is also known as a fat storage hormone.

Are you starting to see why we encourage you to stay away from carb rich breakfast cereals while you are trying to lose weight?

On the other hand by eating protein in the morning, this will help you to feel fuller for longer, helping to stop that craving for carb rich foods.

How Protein Helps You Lose Weight

Protein is the single most important nutrient for weight loss.

This is because the body uses more calories to metabolize protein, compared to fat or carbs. One study in women showed that increasing protein intake from 15 to 30% of total calories helped them eat 441 fewer calories per day. They also lost 11 pounds (5 kg) in just 12 weeks!

Another study found that increasing protein to 25% of total calories reduced late-night snacking by half and obsessive thoughts about food by 60%!

In yet another study, two groups of women were put on weight loss diets for 10 weeks. The groups ate the same amount of calories, but different amounts of protein. All the women in the study lost weight. However, the high-protein group lost about half a kg (1.1 lbs) more, and a larger percentage of body fat.

Bottom Line: Adding protein to your diet is a very effective way to lose weight. It may also help dieters sustain long-term weight loss. High-protein breakfasts reduce calorie intake later in the day. They improve the levels of your appetite-regulating hormones, leading to reduced hunger and cravings.
