Ask any trainer, fitness professional or coach and they will tell you that protein is top dog when it comes to shedding the pounds. It supports muscle and helps keep you energised while ditching the fat.
What's the right amount to be taking on in order to succeed when wanting to shift some weight?
If you stick to a basis of 1.5g to every kg of your body weight you are pretty much on the right track to maintain a good decrease in fat reduction. Add this to high intense weight session 3-4 times a week with additional cardio vascular work if necessary and the fat and pounds should burn away.
