How Protein Can Help You Lose Weight


You may of heard the saying β€œProtein is king” before. So why is protein so highly prized?

Below I will share with you the reasons why Protein is so beneficial to your weight loss goals.


Protein is a very important nutrient for weight loss goals, in fact it’s the most important one!

First off if you compare this to fat or carbohydrates, protein keeps you fuller much longer.

This makes you less likely to be snacking at midnight and adding on unnecessary calories. It then becomes easier to sustain the weight once you have lost it.

Those of you with a sweet tooth will like this tip.

If you pair protein with carbohydrate foods it slows down the absorption of sugar in your stomach and into your bloodstream, which will most likely help to prevent your blood sugar level from rising due to less future cravings.

Your body cannot effectively burn and use fat as energy if it doesn’t have help from either carbohydrates or protein ( its a scientific fact you know).

As your losing weight, your body will lose both muscle and fat, during this process. It is important that you still continue to eat enough protein in your diet.

Doing this ensures you are having adequate protein coming into your system, which will fuel the fat burning process, while preserving the calorie- burning and keeping the lean muscles you just gained.

When eating high- protein diet it will cause weight loss, but the catch is you don’t have to calorie count, portion control or any of those type of restrictions.

So after all that I hope you understand that for fat loss, protein really is king.

You do not need to restrict anything to benefit from a higher protein diet. It’s all about adding to your diet.

This is appealing of course because most high- protein foods are also very tasty.

A high-protein diet can also be an effective obesity prevention method, not just something that you only use temporarily to lose fat.

By permanently increasing your protein intake, you end up tipping the “calories in” vs “calories out” balance in your favour . increasing the protein intake, you end up tipping the calories in vs calories out balance in your favour .

I know if you do this consistently in months, years and dare I say it, decades.. the difference in your waistline will be something else.

Though calories still count. Protein can reduce hunger and boost your metabolism, but you wont lose weight if you don’t eat fewer calories than you burn it’s just that simple.

It will be very difficult to do this without gaining weight if you are still eating junk food. For this reason you should still base your diet mostly on wholesome foods & single ingredient foods.

DID YOU KNOW? Your protein needs an increase after an intense workout. So increasing your protein intake on days that you exercise is a must!
