Protein and weight loss, what is the connection? Here is how protein and weight loss are connected:
Protein and weight loss: it all about the beef Protein increases levels of the amino acid leucine, which helps you keep the good stuff (muscle mass) and lose the bad stuff (fat) when you are dieting, says nutrition professor Donald K. Layman, Ph.D., of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Aim for 8 to 10 ounces of lean protein sources daily.
Protein and weight loss: know what lean means Lean beef contains less than 4.5 grams of saturated fat per 3.5-ounce serving; “extra lean” contains less than 2 grams. Lean cuts include round, strip, tenderloin, flank, shoulder, and T-bone steaks; chuck shoulder and arm pot roasts; and 95-percent-lean ground beef.
Extra lean choices are round roast, top round, mock tender, bottom round, and top sirloin.
