The truth is that it’s not just how much you eat but exactly what you eat that makes a difference in weight management. Carbs and proteins, fiber and fat are what we hear about. The big question that needs to be figured out is: “What’s the right mixture of these nutrients for weight loss and/or longevity?”
Recently the New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing that a diet in higher-protein, lower-glycemic-index foods prevailed was better able to maintain recent weight loss than those who ate less protein and higher-glycemic-value foods. And those who followed a low-protein, high-glycemic-index diet were more likely to regain their lost weight.
If you follow my articles, you know I’ve been a continous advocate of high protein diets. Protein tends to help keep you feeling full longer than most other nutrients. Eating high protein is satisfying and easy to stick with.
I strongly recommend the Metagenics protein shakes – UltraMeal & UltraMeal Plus 360 to help with your weight loss program. Order at www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com
