Lose Weight: Include More Protein in Your Diet

foods rich in protein

Fat is found in different parts of the body – right under the skin, in the blood and around the internal organs.

Fat that accumulates around organs like heart, lungs and liver is the most dangerous of all fats. That's why deep belly fat is something that you should always try to get rid of as quickly as possible.

Belly fat is a problem for a lot of people. While some belly fat is normal, too much belly fat can lead to a number of health issues. Once you know that you have too much deep belly fat, you should immediately start losing weight.

There are many ways to lose weight, right?

But do you know that adding protein to your diet is one of the most effective ways to lose weight and avoid regaining weight?

Yes, eat more protein.

Researches have shown that taking a high-protein diet reduces food cravings by as much as 60% and improves metabolism by 80-100 calories/day.

If you plan to lose weight fast, adding more protein to your diet is a way you should quickly apply, among other ways that you use for the same. We all know that eating more protein helps lose more body weight and become healthier.

It's interesting to note that high protein intake doesn't only help you lose weight, but it also help you reduce belly fat.

There are some studies that show that eating more protein on a daily basis could directly burn belly fat. According to one study, quality protein intake is inversely related with belly fat. Which means, people who consume more (and better) protein are supposed to have less belly fat.

If you plan to lose weight, and belly fat in particular, shake things up a little and add more protein to your everyday diet. Since high-protein food requires more processing time in the body, it also burn more calories.

Plus, protein-rich food remains for a longer period in the stomach, and you keep feeling full for a longer period of time as well. So, it's time you started eating more high protein food.

There are many sources of protein-rich food including veggies and animal products. But complete protein (all nine amino acids) is found in animal products like skinless white chicken, seafood, grass-fed beef, wild salmon, light canned tuna, pork tenderloin etc.

If adding a good amount of protein to your diet looks like a struggle, you should try a quality protein supplement instead.
