A yummy steak, maybe a nice piece of salmon, or beans for your side dish, there are many reasons you need to include protein in your meals.

Including protein in your meal will help you with your cravings.According to researchers if you eat approximately one daily serving of protein it can increase your fullness, which will then lead to better weight management and weight loss.

Did you know that just eating in general can boost your metabolism for a while, but eating protein really gets things going. Studies show that overweight dieters are more likely to lose fat instead of muscle just by following a higher protein diet.

Now if protein boosts your metabolism and reduces cravings, then it just makes sense that eating it will also help you lose weight. Just an increase in protein has been shown to help with weight maintenance.

So for the health benefits simply add more protein to your diet!
