Weight Loss.....increased protein intake.

Metabolic rate and muscle mass both decrease during weight loss.This make it difficult to maintain  in lost weight.A study in University of Netherland found protein intake was critical during weight loss to maintaining normal metabolism.Overweight people between age 18 to 80 years old involved in this experimental....half of people consumed  0.8grams of protein  per kilogram per daily(norm for daily intake) and half group consumed 1.2 gram protein per kilogram daily(high protein intake).
After six month,lean mass and metabolic rate was highest and diastolic blood pressure was lowest in the high-protein intake group..Increase protein intake when trying to lose weight
