Lean On Protein


The formula for weight loss: Add, don’t subtract. A study from the Netherlands suggests we should focus on increasing protein intake rather than cutting carbs. People who followed a high protein diet lost a similar amount of weight after a year whether they were also limiting carbs or not. Protein should be the centre piece of your diet because it keeps you full and helps you maintain muscle mass, the researchers say. Dieters consumed half a gram of protein for each pound of their body weight.
