More Protein - Less Fat

by Paul Cribb, B.H.Sci HMS
AST Director of Research

Increasing the ratio of protein in the diet is now considered a safe, effective strategy that lowers blood fat concentrations and improves insulin/glucose metabolism. These are important benefits that ensure better fat loss, particularly when calorie intake is controlled.

Unlike high-carb diets, protein-rich diets promote steady insulin and blood glucose levels that ensure body fat is still metabolized and utilized for energy. This benefit is thought to be enhanced by moderate calorie-restriction. To get lean and stay lean there is no need to go on semi-starvation diets; simply increase the ratio of protein in your diet, perform some sort of exercise almost daily and follow a moderately calorie-restricted diet.

[Rob's Note:] It's been the increase of protein in my diet that has had the most dramatic effect on my weight loss, my mood and my blood sugar levels. I base my diet on a system specific line of whole foods (S_R) which are highly nutritious. The addition of them made the most dramatic effect on my health. Stevia has improved my blood sugar and my ability to digest foods, but it's the increase of protein that has taken my health to the next level. As far as macronutritients go, protein, for my body type, is one of the best things I can eat.
