How many of us have tried adhering to strict diet patterns and sacrificed on our favourite foods in a bid to lose that extra bulge? Ranging from expensive and non-feasible juice cleanses to starving crash diets- we have failed miserably not only at our inability to shed the fat but also have felt rather more fatigued after being on such special kinds of a diets.
Post the Age of 30, why do women tend to gain weight?
Perhaps, if we just prod ourselves to scientifically explain our situational crisis, science tells us, that post the age of 30 years, the body begins to undergo sarcopenia (muscle loss) which of course, happens as a result of lack of physical activity among other things.
However, what muscle loss with age generally leads to is more weight gain through fat accumulation, as fat tends to fill in the spaces that muscle formerly was in.
What is Protein’s role in breaking down Fat?
Now, most of us are aware how protein has always been one to help with the basic body functions (muscle building, hair and skin health and what not!) But the one thing where it becomes an important ingredient to be emphasized upon as a part of our diets is due to its role in the breakdown and burning of fat. While not all fat is harmful, as long as it fits well into the normal range of fat requirement, you are good (as shown in the table below).
