Why do high protein diets help people lose weight?

    Actually, the American Heart Association does not recommend high-protein diets for those who want to lose weight. Some of these diets are lacking in essential nutrients and do not provide the variety of foods needed to meet nutritional needs. Usually, people who stay on these high-protein diets very long may not get enough vitamins and minerals. In turn, they may also be at risk for other health complications. Protein is recommended for building muscle weight, although eating too much protein can increase health risks as well.
