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 word 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.

BENEFITS OF EATING PROTEIN
There are multiple results-driven benefits from consuming a higher protein diet if your goal is:
In addition, it has other secondary and situational benefits such as:
A High-protein Diet Can Help Curb Cravings
A High-protein Diet Can Help Maintain Lean Muscle Mass
A High-protein Diet Can Help Repair Your Muscles
A High-protein Diet Can Help You Feel Full
Muscle tissue is the most metabolic tissue in the body.
When you consume a serving of protein, roughly 20-30 grams of protein or more in a single sitting, you supply your body with amino acids.
There are 22-Amino Acids but 9-Essential Amino Acids, which are necessary for muscle tissue to repair.
You'll always get all 9-Essential Amino Acids when you have protein from animal sources.
You will not get all 9-Essential Amino Acids from plant or grain-based proteins.
Consuming the right amount of protein at one sitting will induce muscle protein synthesis.
This basically allows your muscles to be in a state of building and repair.
Your body then uses fats and carbs as a primary fuel source and not precious muscle!
