Wanna know the #1
way to boost your metabolism and make it easier to stick to a fat loss diet?
Eat enough protein.
It might seem too simple, but it's true. And if you're not getting enough, you're making things way harder on yourself.
I know actually doing so might feel difficult. You don’t enjoy it all that much. It makes you TOO full, it's a pain in the ass to prep.
But would you rather put in a little extra effort, or keep struggling to reach your goal?
If you aren’t eating an adequate amount of protein for your needs, your results won’t be optimal. Yes you can lose weight on a low protein diet, but it will be just that….weight. Not FAT.
And it’s fat loss that gives you that lean, toned look I know you’re going for.
So how does protein help with that? Lots of ways!
I know you might be afraid to lift weights because you believe it will make you bulky. But I promise you that isn’t the case. Building muscle is what gives you that sexy shape, and losing the body fat that covers that muscle is what allows your newly build curves to show.
If you want to build muscle, or at the very least maintain what you have while listing fat, you need protein to do so because it’s the building block of muscle tissue. Aim for .7-1g of protein per pound of bodyweight.
Protein keeps hunger hormones under control so you don’t feel ravenous during the day. It also balances blood sugar, which leads to more stable energy, less hunger, and fewer cravings.
It burns more calories to digest than carbs or fats. Your body will burn 20-35% of calories digesting protein, but only 5-15% digesting carbs and fats.
Eating enough protein at every meal (around 30 grams is a good target) will fill you up faster and will keep you full for longer. That way you can reduce the amount of calories you’re eating without having to try that hard.
If overall hunger is in check and you’re feeling energized, you are less likely to crave higher calorie foods that can lead to overeating.
Are you getting enough protein in your diet? If not, what’s keeping your from doing so?
