Posted on January 17, 2011 by 6 Comments

proteinWant to lose weight without hunger and keep it off? Protein makes it possible.

Numerous studies have shown that making sure protein intake remains high when cutting calories for weight loss can help prevent muscle loss (which keeps metabolism high), satiate hunger, and reduce cravings and binges. Low-calorie, high-protein plans also encourage the body to tap fat stores rather than muscle to get by on fewer calories, making maintaining weight loss easier over time as well.
