Approximately 25% of protein calories are used for the digestion process. “Kim Lyons –whose information is used here from the Muscle & Body magazine, recommends getting at least 1 g of protein per pound of lead body mass. “ If you do not know your lean body mass, you can eat .6 to .8 g per pound of body weight.”

Tip One:

Increase Calories:
“You must fuel your body with enough calories to get your metabolism-regulating hormones back in check. It is critical to do this slowly. Over the course of weeks and moths, start adding 20-50 calories into your diet. Along the way your weight loss actually starts to pick up again. A reminder, increasing calories means you inevitably increase muscle-glycogen capacity, and glycogen carries water with it. This is a good thing! Water is not fat, and glycogen is fuel for high-intensity exercise.”
