Protein is essential on Phase 3
Carol’s Facebook Quicktips #11
It’s key to have a high protein intake on P3. Protein requires more energy to digest than other foods and helps you to burn more calories which will help with weight loss in P3. Protein foods also help to slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream which reduces hunger by reducing insulin levels and making it easier for the body to burn fat. Yipee for protein!
This article mentions protein burns more calories which will help with weight loss in P3.
I thought you weren’t suppose to loose weight in P3 – just maintain for 21 straight days.
Martha you are correct. I suspect it was written that way meaning for those times when individuals get close to going over the 2 pound limit and would therefore need to lose in order to properly stabilize (such as with a steak day).
