Like I said....

Need to lose a few kilos? Increasing your protein intake may just be the answer you’ve been looking for. Upping your protein intake while decreasing your carbohydrate intake could be the key to helping you shed more body fat.

A high protein diet can help your body burn fat because it takes the body more energy to process protein than it does to process carbohydrates. So, if you increase your protein intake while decreasing carbs, it forces your body to use more energy to assimilate the food you eat.

Increased protein intake may also help your body burn fat because protein is responsible for maintaining your body’s muscle mass—and muscle burns calories.

Simply put, maintaining healthy muscles helps your body burn energy, even when you’re sitting on the lounge or fast asleep. The more muscles mass you maintain, the more calories those muscles are burning on a daily basis.
