Eat protein with every meal. It will help you cut calories without feeling hungry because you are eating enough. And, it will help your fat loss and weight loss efforts. One of the knocks on fad diets is that you feel like you're starving most of the time.
For example, a study published in Nutrition Research shows that a breakfast including eggs reduces hunger pangs and decreases calorie intake for the rest of the day. It takes your body longer to digest protein, so you will fill fuller for a longer period of time by eating more foods rich in protein
By the way, eating whole eggs (both whites and yolks) will not harm your health. Eggs have taken a bad rap in the past. I would recommend you eat eggs from free-range chickens. They are healthier and taste better.
Its a good idea to get full on protein foods first. It will help you eat less of the condiments and other high-fat foods. You will find yourself eating healthier overall when you load up on foods like eggs, nuts, turkey, chicken, fish, etc.
Protein also helps control your blood sugar levels if you happen to eat carbohydrates with your meal.
Protein is used by your body to repair and rebuild damaged tissues as a result of a tough workout (especially weight training). Quickly digesting protein shakes work well after a workout.
Other daytime and nighttime meals could be comprised of slowly digesting protein (such as lean meats) that will give a constant release of amino acids into your system during the day and overnight.
So, when used right, protein will help you cut calories and build a lean body.
