4 ways protein promotes weight loss

15.06.16

Protein keeps getting more popular, as more people are realising just how amazing it is. Below we outline 4 amazing ways protein promotes weight loss.

 

1. Protein helps tone muscle, which helps burn fat

Protein replenishes your muscles following a workout, enabling you to tone in the best possible way.

This is great news, as a toned body requires more energy to maintain, meaning your metabolism speeds up and less energy is stored as fat in your body.

So simply put, by toning muscle you can burn fat!

 

2. Protein is a fat burning fuel

Your body requires protein in order to effectively burn and use fat as energy. Without protein, your body would retain more fat!

 

3. Protein makes you feel fuller for longer

Protein helps to slow down your digestive process. This helps to banish those hunger cravings. Indeed, a high protein breakfast means you are less likely to have that mid-morning snack!

 

4. Protein requires more energy to digest

The ‘thermic effect of food’ (TEF) is simply the energy our bodies use up through the digestive process. It just so happens that protein has a higher TEF than both carbs and fats. This means that your body burns more calories digesting protein than any other macronutrient!
