You know the old saying. If it seems too good to be true, it usually is — and when it comes to your health, it’s almost always someone looking to dip his grimy paws into your wallet.
But that rule doesn’t always apply.
New research reveals one weight loss trick that sounds way too good to be true, but is 100 percent on the level. It’s a diet that helps you lose weight without counting calories, sweating through exercise, joining the Weight Watchers cult, or choking down Nutrisystem’s cardboard dinners.
All you need to do is boost your protein intake — because the latest science shows how it can help you to feel full longer…so you eat less…without even realizing it!
And that, in turn, can help you to lose weight faster and keep the pounds off for good.
Researchers from Purdue University looked at years of research on protein and its effects on the human body.
What they found is no surprise. When you fill your plate with protein — the backbone of the low-carb diet — you trigger your body’s natural self-control mechanism. You get a blast of the hormones that tell your brain you’re nice and full so it’s time to stop eating… and the feeling lasts.
The result? You’re no longer facing every dieter’s worst enemy — the hunger pangs that constantly follow you around, begging you to give in and just eat something already.
Instead, you feel full — which means you can eat without having to break out a calculator and a food scale to figure out how much you’re allowed to have.
And that leads to more than just weight loss.
As the pounds fall off, you’ll give yourself the gift of better overall health. Beefing up your protein power can not only reverse metabolic syndrome, but it can also prevent diabetes. And if you’ve already been diagnosed with type 2, it can help you get it under control — or even reverse it — so you can cut back on and maybe even eliminate your meds.
The new study isn’t perfect. These are mainstream researchers, after all, so instead of urging folks to make the switch to an animal-based diet, they’re issuing the usual blather about getting protein from plants.
If you want to eat soy burgers and bean cakes, be my guest.
Personally, I’m sticking to cows, pigs, chicken, and fish — because along with delivering the protein you need so you stay satisfied, these meats will also give you essential fats such as the omega-3s that are so critical to your heart, brain, eyes, and more.
Animal proteins, especially those from dairy, can also do something else that plant proteins can’t: keep your muscles strong, especially if you’re a little older.
