Too Little Protein in Your Diet? You Could Be GAINING Weight!

NJ Nutritionist Joy Solliday, owner and creator of the widely successful FOODFIT weight management program, explains how a diet lacking in protein can cause excess body fat and hinder a person’s weight loss. FOODFIT is a comprehensive weight loss plan in NJ that focuses on helping clients lose weight through a multi-platform program combining exercise, diet modification, and lifestyle coaching.

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a diet high in carbohydrates and fats and low in protein will cause people to lose lean muscle and gain body fat. The participants of the study exercised very little and purposely ate more than their required amount of calories with varied amounts of protein.

The group who consumed low amounts of protein stored 90% of their extra calories as body fat versus the other groups where 50% of their extra calories became fat. The group on the low-protein diet also lost an average of 1.5 pounds of lean body mass while the other groups gained an average of 6 to 7 pounds.

Joy Solliday, a NJ nutritionist, works with her clients on creating a diet that includes smarter and healthier choices. Adding lean protein is an essential part of Joy Solliday’s revolutionary NJ weight loss program.  According to Joy, protein keeps clients full longer and helps build lean muscle mass which is essential after exercising.

The study also concluded that high-fat, high-carb diets that are low in protein can cause people to increase body fat even if they are not packing on pounds. People starting a diet or NJ weight loss program like FOODFIT should aim for a high-protein diet to lower body fat percentage and build lean muscle.
