The amount of protein in our food is very important. Consuming protein daily reduces weight and helps in making muscles. Apart from this, our damage cells are repaired by eating protein, and it helps in creating new cells. Also helps to boost metabolism. However, a new study has revealed that eating more protein does not reduce your weight. This makes more muscle than fat in your body.
According to a study by Boston’s Obesity Society Annual Meeting, metabolism does not increase due to protein, but because of this, muscles are produced in the body. For this, the researcher’s team put 16 people on high calorie diet for 8 weeks. Each diet gave 5 percent, 15 percent and 25 percent protein. Because of which they ate healthy weight due to eating 40 percent more protein than normal.
It was found in the study that 45 percent of the calories in the body of people who ate normal or high protein diet were stored in the form of muscles. At the same time, 95 percent of the calories in the body of people who consumed less protein diet were stored as fat.
Researchers have not been able to confirm how protein can change the calories stored in the body. But it became clear from this that eating protein changes the percentage of body fat. This change causes weight loss due to changes in the muscles, due to which metabolism is boosted.
How much protein to eat daily
Protein is not stored in our body like other nutrients. Therefore, we should consume it daily. According to one study, 25 to 45 percent of your diet should be protein every day. You should eat blueberries, raspberries, mushrooms in seafood, beans, soy, nuts, seeds, eggs, fruits and vegetables.
