Protein for weight loss

Study shows protein fills you up more, increases metabolism while sugar slows metabolism and fat oxidation and increases calorie consumption.

The amount of protein, fat and carbohydrates in the diet plays a more important role in maintaining a healthy body weight and preventing obesity than previously thought. In a study of 27 healthy weight adults increasing dietary protein decreased hunger and increased fullness. Although males were hungrier and less satisfied with the meals than females. However, the inclusion of a sugar sweetened beverage markedly suppressed diet induced thermogenesis and fat oxidation.

While other studies have shown consumption of a sugar sweetened beverages during a meal markedly reduces energy efficiency and fat oxidation independent of macronutrient composition.

In the US between 1971and 1974, the percentage of energy intake (%E) from carbohydrates was reported to be 44%E, protein 17%E and fat 37%E and in 2013–2014, carbohydrates had increased to 49%E while protein and fat decreased to 16%E and 33%E, respectively. This change in the macronutrient composition of the American diet has increased total energy intake by approximately 984 kJ per day along with increasing weight gain and obesity.

Studies of human bioenergetics have consistently reported that increasing dietary protein while maintaining energy intake produces a greater and more prolonged thermic effect and greater total energy expenditure. Furthermore, dietary protein intake potentially increases fat oxidation by up to 50%.

The observed increase in dietary carbohydrates has come primarily from added sugars, accounting for approximately 16%E of total energy intake. The largest single source of added sugar and discretionary energy intake in the American diet is sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs). In addition to increasing energy intake, SSBs may significantly affect postprandial fat oxidation. A recent study showed that the addition of orange juice with a standard breakfast meal decreased fat oxidation compared to the same meal coupled with water. This acute effect on net fat oxidation leads to preferential increases in visceral adipose tissue when consumed daily over long periods. Taken together, these results suggest that the consumption of SSBs may be contributing to weight gain by adding energy to the diet and reducing fat oxidation.
