4. Eat protein…and more protein
This is a no-brainer, right? At only four calories per gram, protein is an ideal choice for keeping your calorie count in check. It also keeps you fuller for longer and works to reubuild and preserve muscle. Research has also found that a high-protein diet increases fat loss because it increases the metabolic rate while decreasing hunger.
You’re probably familiar with the recommendation of 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight. If you’re already hitting this quota, then consider increasing that slightly, adjusting as necessary elsewhere for your target calorie count.
