A high-protein diet boosts metabolism helps Lose Weight
When it comes to fat loss, protein is the king of nutrients, protein helps reduce appetite, and tends to change several weight-regulating hormones.
1. Protein tends to alter hunger hormones
A higher protein intake tends to increase the feeling of satiety and alter the hunger hormone ghrelin This leads to a major reduction in hunger and is one of the main reasons protein helps to lose weight.
2. Protein burns calories
Proteins help digest and metabolise the food as they have high thermic effect as compared to carbohydrates. So the more protein we eat, the better our digestive system becomes.
3. Protein reduces appetite
Protein tends to reduce hunger and appetite and can automatically lead to reduction in calorie intake.
