I have, far too often in my opinion, gone hungry in the name of healthy eating and weight loss. And I’m sure I’m not alone in that.
Is going hungry and only eating salad really the only way to lose weight?
The answer is found in the high protein diet.
The high protein is, just like it sounds, a diet where you up your intake of protein. You get around 41% of your daily food intake from protein, allocating the rest of your calories to carbs and fat.
The diet is great because protein is harder for the body to break down, so it keeps you fuller for longer. You’ll eat lots of lean meat, like chicken and turkey, plenty of seafood, like fish and shrimp, and healthy non-meat protein sources like eggs, beans, and soy.
Besides the weight loss you experience, a high protein diet can also:
– Raise your metabolic rate and help you burn more calories
– Increase your muscle mass
– Help you better maintain muscle as you age
– Strengthen your bones
