Protein And Fat Loss

Today I thought I'd take a moment to explain the importance of protein and its role in fat loss. It's very important to balance ALL meals and snacks with carb-rich and protein-rich foods together. A meal with carbohydrates alone is problematic because glucose levels shoot up and then crash down. This can leave you feeling tired, hungry, and weak - and gives your body an easy opportunity to convert that meal to fat.
