That the use of body protein and fat has differences

Jun 23rd 2014 at 5:52 AM

"The composition of the ingredients that you use, is not as important to determine your fat stores - important only calories" - says Bray. Our research has shown that the use of body protein and fat have differences. Proteins give a slightly different effect than general calories." Participants who ate a lot of protein and little fat, calories obtained, which 90 percent is turned into fat, protein and lack of impact on the loss of muscle mass. Their body had to use its muscle to activate certain proteins that are present in the body. Those who ate normal or increased amounts of protein obtained only 50 percent of excess weight from fat. Bray also noted that given the amount of protein that is consumed daily, participants who ate a low-protein foods (only 48 grams of protein), they had to increase protein intake to 78 grams in order to not lose muscle mass. The researchers also measured the energy consumption of participants that is how many calories they spend every day. It was found that those who ate a normal or large amount of protein not only spend more calories compared to that before the study was, but also using more energy than those fed on the minimum amount of protein. Meanwhile, metabolism at rest in those who ate a low-protein diet decreased: in other words, as they gain weight, they needed fewer calories to maintain this weight - is a recipe for obesity.
