According to the CDC ( Center for Disease Control and Prevention), adults in the U.S. are encouraged to get 10% to 35% of their day's calories from protein foods. That's about 46 grams of protein for women, and 56 grams of protein for men.
It's not hard to get this amount if you eat two to three servings of protein-rich foods every day. Protein is like the new super food. High protein diets have been shown to help with weight loss, but they must done correctly and also be coupled with calorie restriction. There is no magic bullet or pill to take with weight loss, it just takes a commitment to eating healthy and knowing how your body processes different foods. Eating fresh vegetables and healthy lean protein have been shown to be a great success with weight loss as well as weight maintenance. Give it a try and give yourself a week to see results!
