Water appears to be a potent weapon for dieters. A University of Washington study found that one glass of water halted nightime hunger pangs for almost 100 percent of subjects. Try it with a squeeze of lemon or lime.
Researchers at the University of Washington found that a diet that is 30 percent protein helped a group of overweight subjects lose more fat—an average of eight pounds each in three months. It turns out
that the protein helped suppress appetite and boost metabolism. The subjects ate about 440 fewer calories per day thanks to an increase in protein. That could be one more reason a moderate-carb, higher-protein diet works so well at helping the body shed fat.
How much protein do you eat per day? Are you doing Paleo, Keto, or just keeping it simple by eating with the seasons like me? I like eating what is best for me and maybe not everyone else.
