Part 1 – The Diet
Proteins play a key role in your ability to lose weight, plus they help satiate you, build muscle mass, and boost metabolism. In short, proteins feed your muscles so you can shrink your fat. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. But Americans don’t get the right proteins—or the right amounts. Most people eat far more protein than they need and from sources like steak and cheese that are loaded with saturated fat. Other people buy foods on the run that they may think are protein sources but in reality have more starchy carbs and unhealthy fats than lean, nutritious protein.
