I don’t know if you may remember it or not, but in the early 90’s low fat became all the rage as far as dieting. Everyone (myself included) was eating lots of carbs (and not the good ones) and eating low protein.
This was, of course, the wrong thing to do.
Protein is incredibly important to us. It not only helps us feel full, but our bodies need it to repair muscle tissue from working out. Remember that muscle burns fat, and protein builds muscle. So protein is vital to our fat burning efforts.
I have found that I get the best weight loss results from choosing lower fat protein sources most of the time. Eggs, egg whites, lean beef, skinless chicken and turkey breast, 1% or Skim dairy products, and protein supplements have given me the best results, and they’re what I recommend you eat most often.
No, protein isn’t the bad guy.
