Double the pro’s of protein
Want to trim off your muffin top and get abs like Jen Anniston? Listen up, doubling your recommended amount of protein while sticking to a healthy diet and exercise regime promotes fat loss and protects muscle.
US Army Researchers found that when fed twice the US recommended daily intake of protein – that’s 2x 46g for women and 2x 56g for men – over 31 days, the participants lost more fat and retained more muscle than those who ate the recommended amount. Pass the steak please.
But don’t go overboard when munching on meat as tripling the amount of protein gave no extra benefits. Damn.
