Eat More Protein
For the most part, what you eat matters very little if calories are controlled for. The one exception is protein. Protein does three key things that can help with weight loss.It keeps you fuller for longer
- It’s metabolized less efficiently than either carbs or fat, meaning you can get away with eating more of it
- It helps preserve lean muscle mass, thus helping a greater portion of weight loss come from body fat stores.
Science shows that these benefits cap out at around .8g protein per lb of body weight per day. I recommend trying to hit that daily mark as often as you can.
