Most people with good metabolism know that eating carbohydrates makes you store fat in your belly and eating protein makes you store muscle. However, according to a recent story in the Journal of the American Medical Association discovered that overeating low-protein diet makes you accumulate bad fat around your organs like liver, kidneys and pancreas. So hence is the conclusion that eating high-protein diet makes you add muscle and muscle mass. This is a good thing because muscle tends to burn seven times more calories than fat.
The researchers conducting this study included 25 volunteers to a hospital for 12 weeks controlling everything they ate and did. The volunteers had to eat in excess of about 1, 000 calories daily, ones coming from protein and others from carbohydrates.
The volunteers who eat low-protein diet 5% protein) lost 1.5 pounds of muscle, and gained 7.5 pounds of fat, and the volunteers who eat high-protein diet 25% protein) gained 6.3 pounds of metabolically active muscle. Although they gained more total weight, they were less fat than the volunteers who eat low-protein diet.
This can change your thinking about calories.
The prevalence of the obesity is likely to double in the next 30 years, because only now there are more people who are overweight (2.1 billion) than underweight.
The increasingly global diet that contains sugar, high fructose corn syrup and white flour makes you accumulate most of the fat in the belly which leads to obesity and diabetes.
This protein study reveals that protein-rich diet (25%) has the ability to fight against obesity to your body and brain:
–Proteins make you feel fuller than an equal amount of carbohydrate calories.
This leads to greater weight loss in humans than “free life” in comparison to those who were fed more calories.
–Stops weight gain after losing weight
–It makes your metabolism faster and strengthens your muscle so it will make you burn more calories during the day and even while you sleep.
Reducing belly fat and increasing muscle is very easy. It is more important to know where you calories come from rather what kinds of calories you consume.
TIPS TO SPEED UP YOUR METABOLISM AND ELIMINATE BELLY FAT
1. Avoid the sugar – in all its forms. Calories, especially liquid from any source (soda, juice, alcohol), all of which makes you add belly fat. Eliminate high fructose corn syrup of a diet.
2. Do not use flour – Wheat flour, above all, is like sugar. Namely, 2 slices of whole wheat bread increase your blood sugar more than 2 tablespoons of table sugar.
3. Start the day with non-starchy protein or sugar. We recommend to you to try eggs with omega-3, a protein shake, nut butter! Skip the bagels, muffins and donuts.
4. Include protein in every meal – Try nuts such as almonds, walnuts or pecans, seeds such as squash, chia, beans, chicken or fish.
The most important thing we should know is that we shouldn’t be deceived by the idea that all calories are the same, because that it is not true. We sincerely hope that the practice of nutrition and medicine and our government nutrition advice will have an effect on science. Then perhaps we will be able to prevent the risk of developing obesity, diabetes and chronic diseases.
