Protein Increases Metabolism

Carol’s Facebook Quick Tips # 27


Did you know that protein raises your metabolism? Studies show that protein can increase the burning of calories by up to 25%. So make sure you get in your protein – shakes, Greek Yogurt, lean beef, chicken … It takes more energy for your body to digest protein and that extra energy burns more calories!

    Your website has helped me so much. I am currently in phase 2, i want to make sure i do everything right. I will be starting phase 3 the 500 calorie diet tomorrow and i was wondering if i could eat steamed veggies?? Also is there a protein shake i can have to replace the meat for lunch and dinner??

    Thank you so much

    no you need to get your protein from animal sources.. Try the apple chicken
    salad if you need a portable meal.
