Diogene Diet Helps Maintain Weight Loss

Increasing the protein content of the diet by five percent after significant weight loss (25 pounds) resulted in better weight maintenance than consuming diets containing various types of carbohydrates. This was the conclusion of researchers of The Diogenes Project, a randomized clinical trial that was conducted in eight centers across Europe. The test subjects followed an 800-calorie-per-day diet for eight weeks and lost an average of 25 pounds. Increasing protein intake helps people maintain weight loss and improves blood pressure, blood fats and inflammation in adults and children. The post-weight-loss diet was particularly significant because no attempt was made to reduce caloric intake. Increasing protein intake is an easy, effective way to help control bodyweight.
