Abstract

Protein Intake and Weight Loss in Obese Men and Women with Cardiometabolic Risk Factors

Background Despite its popularity, increasing dietary protein appears to have modest effects on weight loss. Furthermore, the proportion of total energy from protein that facilitates weight loss in nutritionist-recommended moderately energy-restricted diets is not clarified. We studied the association between protein intake and weight loss in obese men and women with cardiometabolic risk factors.

Keywords: Abdominal obesity; High-protein diet; Moderate energy reduction
