‘Your body digests protein more slowly than fat or carbs, so you feel full longer (this is especially true when you have it for breakfast). Plus, it may also give your metabolism a bump. In a process called thermogenesis, your body uses about 10% of its calorie intake for digestion. So, because it takes longer to burn protein than carbs or fat, your body expends more energy absorbing the nutrients in a high-protein diet. Another bonus: One recent study from Purdue University found that diets higher in protein may help preserve lean body mass, which is the best fat-burner of all!!!!’
Adding lean well sourced protein is a great addition to any diet. Think how much protein you are having in each meal. As far as weight loss goes my clients found that reducing or cutting gluten based carbs after 4pm made a huge difference. I suggest trying a carb or gluten free dinner. Avoid normal potatoes instead try sweet potatoes which release sugar much slower. Basmati rice is also fine.
Breakfast protein is something my clients struggle with but actually. Almond milk in porridge with a few nuts or seeds is great or eggs. Adding nut butter or superfood chia seeds to a smoothie also boost the protein content. I also have a few natural protein powders that are super filling and high in natural grade 1 protein.

But try and get your proteins in and reduce carbs especially later in the day!
