14 Scientifically Proven Ways to Lose Belly Fat

Proven Ways to Lose Belly Fat

3. Eat a High-Protein Diet

Protein is an extremely important nutrient for weight control (17).

Protein has been shown to reduce cravings by 60%, boost metabolism by 80-100 calories per day and help you eat up to 441 fewer calories per day (181920).

High protein intake increases the release of the fullness hormone PYY, which decreases appetite and promotes fullness.

Protein also raises your metabolic rate and helps you retain muscle mass during weight loss (212223).

Many observational studies show that people who eat more protein tend to have less abdominal fat than those who eat a lower-protein diet (2425).

Not only will it help you lose, but it can also help you avoid re-gaining weight if you ever decide to abandon your weight loss efforts (2627).

If weight loss is your goal, then adding protein is perhaps the single most effective change you can do to your diet.
