Why Protein Can Help Fat Loss

By Greggers254 @LeeGregory254
One tip that many personal trainers and nutritionists offer their clients who want to lose body fat is to up their protein intake. But why?....
Why protein can help fat loss
Protein has the same number of calories gram for gram as carbohydrates, but their is a difference. Your body uses carbs as its primary energy source, as it's far easier to digest and convert into energy. If you eat too many carbs, your body will store them as fat. However, by lowering your carbs and increasing your protein, you can help to shed body fat.
Protein is harder for your body to digest so it takes longer to do it. This means that you will feel 'fuller for longer' and therefore you'll be less likely to snack between meals (or if you do snack, you won't be tempted to eat unhealthy foods).
It's pretty easy to eat a chocolate bar or a bag of sweets, and then have another. That's because they're mainly sugar (simple carbs) which as mentioned are easily digested and doesn't fill you up. If you ate a high protein meal or snack, you won't find yourself reaching for another straight away. By curbing hunger, you can help to lose body fat - as you won't be eating as much food.
It's a super tip for anyone who wants to shift those unwanted pounds. Give it a try!
