One of the simplest ways to lose weight is to make sure you're getting the right type of protein in the right amounts at the right time. If you're eliminating or severely limiting protein, or simply focusing more on carbs and ignoring protein, then it could be one of the reasons why your weight loss journey has been an uphill struggle, never making it to the top.
Your body needs protein. Every cell from head to toe must have it. Without enough protein, you'll end up with thinning hair and weak nails. Your body will struggle to stay healthy - to keep your muscles and tissues in good working order. You'll suffer from a lack of certain hormones and you can damage your bones without having enough protein in your diet. But a huge reason that you need to eat protein might surprise you.
You need protein because it gives you energy. And energy is what enables you to be able to do whatever it is that you need to do throughout the day. Lack of protein is a big reason why so many diets people have tried, fail. Who cares what foods you eat when you're so tired and so drained that all you want to do is collapse on the sofa and not move? Diets that don't include a focus on protein will eventually wear you out and you won't want to stick to them. And you shouldn't.
And you need protein to repair and build muscle, but it is also a secret to successful weight loss. Let me show you how to get enough protein in your diet and how protein helps you with your weight loss efforts in my new book "Protein - A Secret to Losing Weight?"

About the Author
While most of my books are on health and fitness in general, as I age (now 65) at the time of this writing) my topics of interest are geared toward aging baby boomers and older.
Besides my own writing, I also ghostwrite ebooks, books, reports, articles, blogs and do Kindle conversions for clients on a variety of topics.
Today my wife and I are retired from our careers and live in Gold Canyon, AZ. I now write as a retirement business where you'll find me happily sitting in my office typing away on my laptop as I work on my next book or ghostwriting project . . . that is if we are not traveling on a cruise ship - our new-found mode of travel.
