Protein To Burn Fat

It is important to eat more protein in your diet as it will increase weight loss, speed up metabolism, and is very unlikely to be stored as fat.

While protein helps speed up your metabolism and aids for losing weight it also helps maintains your lean muscle mass when burning fat is your focus. Without enough protein in your diet it will have you losing vital lean muscle mass that will have your metabolism slowing down and have you burning less fat.

How do I know this?

A study done by the American Journal of Physiology with a group eating 1 gram per pound of body weight and the other group eating according to their RDA. The study showed the group that ate a higher protein diet burned more fat than the other group.

It may be the "thermic effect" as protein speeds up the metabolsim as it was seen in the higher protein in take group as it was an 42% increase.

So eat more protein to increase your metabolism, burn more calories, and keep the food in your stomach there longer.

Have a great day and God bless!
