Ready for the hack??
You sure you can handle it??
To stimulate more fat loss right now, without exercise, you must…
CONSUME. MORE. PROTEIN!
Yup! Read below!
We all know that protein is an essential macronutrient responsible for building and repairing muscles, bones, cartilage, skin, and blood. We also know that when it comes to physical activity, protein plays a vital role in building lean muscle, increasing strength and recovery, AND improving performance. BUT, did you know that a higher protein diet is ideal for fat loss, too!? That’s right! In fact, consuming more protein while in a caloric deficit is one of the most-effective, all-natural ways to stimulate fat loss in your body! Here’s why.
- The process of protein synthesis has a very high thermic effect on your body. You burn extra calories when breaking protein down for digestion/absorption. Compared to carbs and fats, protein breakdown requires our body to work “overtime”. This process stimulates fatty acid oxidation and fat burning.
- Of all the macronutrients, protein has the highest satiating effect. Studies have shown that higher-protein diets decrease appetite due to the stimulation of hunger-suppressing hormones in the body. It makes you feel full, longer.
- Finally, a higher protein diet during calorie-restriction periods (dieting/cutting) will preserve your lean muscle mass which will allow you to eat more and still lose fat. The more muscle you hold on your body, the more calories your body will naturally burn to maintain them.
- Simply put, MORE PROTEIN CONSUMPTION = MORE CALORIES BURNED + MORE APPETITE CONTROL + MORE LEAN MUSCLE + MORE FAT LOSS = WINNING!
Now that we know the benefits of protein, how much should we consume? And where should it come from? There are great questions!
A good rule of thumb is to eat between 0.8-1.0 grams of protein per 1lb of body weight. For example, if you are a 150lbs, you should consume between 120-150 grams per day. Of course, this can vary depending on a couple of factors - age, fitness levels, diets, gender, etc...If you need a more specific number, click the link below and get a tailored breakdown for yourself. Once again, make sure you’re in a caloric deficit (eating fewer calories than your body burns) - which the below calculator will provide as well.

For sources of protein - eggs, lean meats, nuts, cheeses, fish, seeds, quinoa, yogurt, and whey are our preferred methods of protein. There are the foods that give you the “biggest bang for your buck” and yield the most protein, with the least amount of overall calories. Also, a great way to add more protein to your diet without constantly cooking, grilling, and boiling foods is to find a high-quality whey protein supplement.
