Why High Protein Diets Will Not Assist You Lose Weight

Author : Wallace Keynes

There are all types of weight loss program recommendations all over the bodybuilding magazines, fad food plan books, and websites that advise to divide your consuming into totally different "ratios" and "percentages" for weight reduction and fats burning.

Some suggest high fat, low carb, others say reasonable carbs, average fat, high carbs, low fat, etc.

However the one thing that each one of these "weight loss" / "fats burning" diets say is it must be HIGH in protein.

Effectively, I am here to inform you the TRUTH.

It is NOT obligatory at all to eat a food regimen high in protein to lose weight.

Just about everything you read says to eat 1-2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight.

Some even go as excessive as suggesting it's important to not only eat high, however massive quantities of protein to drop a few pounds and burn fat.

This MYTH is due to 3 reasons:

1) Everyone thinks that muscle tissue is made up mostly of protein

2) Everybody thinks that either high quantities of fat or excessive amounts of carbohydrates will trigger you to get fats

three) Everyone thinks that protein has a "thermogenic" (inner-physique temperature elevating) impact, which helps burn fat

All three of those beliefs are utterly mistaken! (On this article I'm going to give you a very transient explanation, however in later articles I'll go into extra detail)

First, muscle tissue is NOT made up of largely of protein. Muscle tissue is 70% WATER.

The other 30% is manufactured from GLUCOSE, and AMINO ACIDS.

Your muscle tissues need simply as much glucose (which is what carbohydrates are transformed into), if not MORE than protein.

You need to know that one of many KEYS to weight loss is to have a big amount of muscle tissue (that doesn imply you have to appear like a bodybuilder when you don need to, although) on the body.


Because the extra muscle you have, the sooner and better your metabolism will get, meaning you may literally burn lots of of calories a day even if you end up just sitting around watching TV.

The more muscle you might have, the higher the quantity of calories which you can eat while still shedding pounds / burning fats (belief me, no one likes having to eat a particularly low amount of calories with a view to drop some pounds).

So, whether you might be male or feminine, regardless if you wish to look like a bodybuilder or simply be toned up and in form, you want muscle!

Those that have medically studied the physiology of the human physique know that amino acids are what make up protein.

Nevertheless, the body uses no matter quantity of amino acids it wants at that specific moment. The remaining it shops for later use.

It is NOT true that you must be eating a "regular stream" of protein to lose weight / burn fat.........your body retains a little "pool" of stored amino acids.

Protein is by far the most difficult macronutrient to interrupt down and digest.

The higher the amount of protein you eat the extra stress you might be placing on your digestive system.

Oh, by the best way, what do you assume occurs to any excess protein??? It turns it into FAT!

Have you ever observed how you feel when you eat a huge burger or steak?

Even after several hours have passed, it still feels like you've got that entire piece of meat simply sitting and rotting in your stomach.

How much profit in weight reduction do you assume that is going to present you?

Have you ever drank these disgusting protein shakes or eaten those chalk-tasting protein bars?

You get gasoline, you feel bloated, and you might even get the "runs" (diarrhea).

That is a significant sign that your body is NOT properly digesting all of that protein!!!

There are a number of real-life examples of athletes that don't devour large quantities of protein to achieve muscle weight, yet have large physiques, have extremely outlined and toned our bodies, are in wonderful health, are highly effective, quick, and agile.

To just name a few of them:

Andreas Cahling - Swedish champion bodybuilder and Olympic gold medalist within the ski jump

Keith Holmes - World champion middleweight boxer

Invoice Manetti - Powerlifting champion

Stan Worth - World weight lifting file holder; bench press

Art Nonetheless - Buffalo Bills and Kansas Metropolis Chiefs MVP defensive ends, Kansas City Chiefs Corridor of Fame

Chris Campbell - Olympic wrestling champion

Peter Hussing - European super heavyweight boxing champion

You can eat all of the protein in the world and never lose one pound of fats weight if you are eating too many calories!!!!!

Remember, it does not matter what we have been fed by the magazines, fad diet books, and corporations making an attempt to promote us their latest protein concoction. All of it comes all the way down to the calories!
