Match the Protein in the Diet to the Protein in the Body

Match the Protein in the Diet to the Lean Body Protein at 1 gram per pound of Lean Body Mass. This amount controls hunger and maintains muscle. It is important to maintain muscle because Lean burns 14 Calories per pound while Fat burns only 3 Calories per pound. Fat stores Calories while Lean tissue burns Calories. A typical sedentary woman 62 inches tall burns around 1000 Calories per day at rest but a man 70 inches tall might burn 2100 Calories per day. Exercise and protein shakes are important for both but exercise will be even more important in the small woman to increase the rate of weight loss and keep it off
