Metabolic Advantage Found In High-Protein Weight Loss Diet

This study aimed to compare the effects of two calorie-restricted weight loss diets on the subjects’ overall weight loss as well as their mitochondrial oxidative metabolism. The mitochondria are responsible for generating cellular energy, so the rate at which they consume fuel is thought to be a good measure of a person’s overall metabolic rate.
