They are essential (just like Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids) in providing our diet.

The high-protein group also lost more fat than the other group.

In another trial, 46 overweight or obese women who followed similar-calorie high-protein or normal-protein diets for 12 weeks, all lost body fat and weight, but the high-protein dieters lost less lean body mass, and they had higher perception of satiety and pleasure, despite being on reduced-calorie diets.

How Protein Aids in Satiety and Weight Loss

The portal vein is responsible for draining blood from your gastrointestinal tract and acts as the main communication channel between your gut and your brain for hunger and satiety. Researchers have found that certain by-products of protein digestion called peptides send signals to the brain that results in the curbing of appetite.

In 2011 a study on obese men demonstrated that increasing protein to 25% of overall calories reduced the desire for late-night snacking by 50% and reduced obsessive thoughts about food by 60%.

I love this Health Concept because I lost 10 kg during the first year just by using the BalanceOil. A few months ago I started taking LeanShake instead of lunch. In the mid of November my weight was 108 kg, after 6 weeks it dropped down to 94 kg, so I lost 14 more kilograms. Now my wedding suit fits me again 🙂 I noticed that LeanShake has lessened my appetite, there is no hunger after lunch and I don’t eat that much for dinner. I try to add exercise as well by walking 10 km three times a week. And I do healthier food choices than before.”
