The Secret Power of Protein

Right now, diets high in protein are incredibly popular. Their success is certainly deserved: protein does affect a person’s appetite and gives us the opportunity to lose weight.

This was discovered by specialists at Washington University on the basis of long-term research in the field of dietetics. The researchers also found that the mechanism of the impact of carbohydrates on the human body was quite different: they are irrelevant to weight loss.

The study involved several hundred volunteers who wanted to lose weight. One group of participants in the experiment ate 30% more protein (with a 20% reduction in fat consumed). The amount of carbohydrates in their diet remained the same. The total caloric content of food of the second group of participants was reduced by 30%, but the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates did not change.

Three months later, the researchers observed some surprising results: the participants in the first group lost an average of 5–7 kg with no loss of muscle mass, while the weight of volunteers from the second group decreased by only 3.2 kg!

Representatives of the first group said that by eating more protein, they felt full after eating a smaller amount of food and no longer felt hungry. By and large, they were losing weight because they consumed fewer calories, not because they reduced the amount of carbohydrates consumed.

Carbohydrates make us feel tired and hungry, while protein makes us feel energetic and well-fed! The body expends more energy to process protein, while absorbing carbohydrates and dietary fat requires less energy, so the result is that a carbohydrate intake often «encourages» us to keep some extra aside. Protein activates the brain and causes it to produce norepinephrine and dopamine, which increase attention, promote better assimilation of information and education. No organ of the human body can function properly without adequate amounts of protein.

Specialists still argue why protein, unlike other nutrients, is so effective at controlling hunger. It is believed that the human central nervous system is sensitive to leptin — the hormone that tells our brain: «Hey, man, you’re hungry!» In addition, it helps to crack down on calories. Here we see a direct correlation between the feeling of fullness and leptin levels, which is produced by our well-fed body. Congenital deficiencies involving leptin lead to obesity.

Fat, in contrast, suppresses the production of leptin, so by consuming protein foods in combination with a high fat content you can achieve the opposite effect, that is not to lose weight, but to gain weight, and vice versa.

It can be deducted from this that our protein intake should come from proper foods: fish, lean meat, skinless poultry, beans, low fat dairy products in the form of protein shakes.

Thus, increasing protein intake by 10%, you can lose weight without reducing the amount of carbohydrates consumed! This may be hard to believe, but this is supported by researchers at Washington University, whose findings are based on years of scientific and practical research.

At first glance, the theory is simple: Eat protein foods so you grow thin. But in reality that means getting up in the morning, preparing a breakfast of low-fat chicken breast, tuna stored for lunch in the office, preparing dinner of a veal chop, etc… This can seem miserable.

Indeed, few of us have the opportunity to arrange a balanced diet three times a day with sufficient protein and essential vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients.
