DOES PROTEIN BOOST METABOLISM?
All the dietary talk is about fat or carbs, think Keto diet or Low Carb.
But in my opinion, protein steals the show.
The work Protein is a Greek word that translates into Primary Importance.
It is needed and essential for us in order to live.
Protein can increase your metabolism and the calories burned for the day.
This will lead to further fat loss when done correctly
THIS HAPPENS BECAUSE OF THE THERMIC EFFECT OF FOOD (TEF).
TEF refers to how many calories you burn while digesting your food. Each macronutrient (Protein, Carbohydrate, Fat) is different:
- Fat: roughly 0-5% of calories are used when processing
- Carbs: roughly 5-10% of calories are used when processing
- Protein: roughly 20-35% of calories are used when processing
Protein takes a lot more energy to process than both carbs and fats.
This is good for fat loss.
The TEF benefits of protein with the combination of some of the other benefits of eating protein can synergistically work together to help you consume fewer calories while burning more calories from the food you’re eating...
Setting you up for better fat loss results by decreasing your caloric intake and increasing your caloric burn for the day.
