High protein diets are often adopted by active people as protein is essential to body tissues, is necessary for growth and contributes to muscle mass and bone health.
Diets higher in protein and moderate in carbohydrates, along with regular exercise, can reduce blood fats. It also helps maintain lean tissue while burning fat for fuel. Protein also works to reduce appetite and therefore fewer cravings.
Research studies have found that people who consumed protein-rich meal replacements as part of a reduced-calorie diet lost more weight and fat mass than those who simply ate fewer calories.
