High-Protein Diets More Effective at Maintaining Weight Loss

Weight Loss Study Summary
Overweight people who lost weight on low-calorie diets were able to maintain their weight loss more effectively by following a higher protein diet, according to a weight loss study.

Weight Loss Study Method
The weight loss study involved 120 people who had lost about 13 pounds of weight in four weeks by following a very low-energy diet. They were then split into two groups-one group followed a moderately restricted diet while the other group followed a diet similar in calories but higher in protein content. As a partial replacement for lunch, the high-protein group received a protein drink that resulted in an additional 30 grams of protein per day. The high-protein diet provided 18 percent of its energy as protein, compared with 15 percent protein in the control diet.

Weight Loss Study Results
After six months, those on the high-protein diet had regained two pounds, while those on the control diet had regained about 6.6 pounds. Further, body mass regained by those in the high-protein group was of fat-free mass, according to researchers. There were also differences in waist circumference at the end of the 6-month study. Those following the high-protein diet lost an average 1.2 cm around the waist while those on the control gained 0.5 cm. Also, those on the high-protein diet reported higher feelings of satiety and had a higher respiratory quotient than the control group.

Weight Loss Study Conclusion
Additional protein intake may contribute to storage of fat-free mass and increase satiety and may result in improved weight maintenance.
