According to new research, high protein diets don’t lead to higher metabolism and greater weight loss than other diets that have a different mix of macronutrients. For weight loss, it’s all about the total calorie count. Regardless of whether you’re eating carbs, fat, or protein, you’ll need to eat less to lose weight. You can’t train the body to have a higher metabolism through eating choices.
This isn’t to say that what you eat doesn’t matter. In an intriguing part of the same study, researchers also found that of the weight gained by eating excess calories, those on high protein diet stored most of the added weight as lean muscle mass, while those who ate more carbs stored it as fat.
