A protein-rich low-carb diet can provide several benefits for weight loss. Firstly, a high protein intake can increase satiety, making it easier to stick to a calorie-controlled diet and reducing the likelihood of overeating. As protein requires more energy to digest than carbohydrates, it also boosts the metabolism, leading to an increase in the number of calories burned throughout the day.

In addition to these effects on energy balance, low-carb diets can also promote weight loss by reducing insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates blood sugar levels. When we consume high amounts of carbohydrates, insulin levels rise, which can lead to weight gain and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. By reducing carbohydrate intake, insulin levels decrease, helping to promote fat oxidation and encourage weight loss.

Finally, reducing carbohydrates can also help to preserve lean muscle mass during weight loss. When we lose weight, it is common to lose a proportion of muscle mass along with fat. However, consuming a diet that is high in protein can help to prevent this muscle loss, as protein is essential for muscle repair and growth. This, in turn, can help to maintain and even increase metabolism, promoting long-term weight loss success.
