Don’t be afraid to eat 100g+ of protein!
Evidence suggests that eating protein can increase the number of calories you burn by boosting your metabolic rate (source)
Consuming 25–30% of your total daily calories from protein has been shown to boost metabolism by up to 80–100 calories per day, compared with lower protein diets (source).
In this 12-week study on women, the women who increased their protein intake to 30% of calories lost 11 pounds by simply adding more protein to their diet.
Protein can also prevent weight gain
CHECK THIS OUT!
In this study, a very small increase in protein from 15% to 18% of calories reduced the amount of fat people regained after weight loss by 50%.
A high protein intake also helps you build and preserve muscle mass, which burns a small number of calories around the clock.
Eating more protein makes it much easier to stick to any weight loss diet — no matter if you eat high carb, low carb, or something in between.
A protein intake of around 30% of calories may be optimal for weight loss according to the above studies. This means from a 2,000 calorie diet (which is quite small) you should be consuming 150 grams per day on average.
