How protein helps in burning more fat
Researchers found that since protein has a higher thermic effect, it takes more energy for one to process protein, as compared to fats or carbs. Thus, high protein diet can help in burning more calories as it makes the body work harder for digestion, and has a higher potential to burn fat while doing so.
Eggs, chicken, lentils, legumes, nuts and seeds, soy products, milk and dairy products are some well-known food sources of protein.
Point to note
It has to be taken into account that this study was short-term and involved only young and healthy volunteers. More research is needed to find out how high-protein diets work in other populations which include people with obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and PCOD to name a few.
Holistically speaking, if you want to lose weight and burn fat, follow a balanced diet, which includes fats, carbs and proteins in balanced proportions. Consume homemade foods made with natural ingredients at all times. Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day, include weight training in your regime at least twice a week, take less stress and sleep well. All these tips can successfully help you lose weight and burn fat.
