Protein: An Essential Component of Healthy Weight Loss

When it comes to protein and weight loss, there are still many skeptics out there who think protein’s role is overrated when it comes to successful dieting.

On the contrary, protein and weight loss can build a successful relationship together if you include this needed nutrient in your diet.

“Your metabolism requires adequate lean protein in your diet if you are trying to lose weight,” says Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D., a board-certified bariatric physician, and the founding physician behind BistroMD.

Metabolism is the process of breaking down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats to yield the energy your body needs in order to maintain itself. Protein’s role in your body’s ability to lose weight is vital.

“When it comes to weight loss, the body cannot store ‘extra’ protein. You cannot eat protein all at once, like most people do at dinner. Protein should be properly portioned throughout each of your meals during the day, in combination with other essential nutrients,” says Dr. Cederquist.

Protein is key to healthy weight loss, and Dr. Caroline Cederquist explains why this nutrient needs to be part of your daily diet.
