Is a Low-Carb Diet High in Protein?
Protein is an important component of a low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet and an essential nutrient for health. There is a lot of misinformation on the Internet. The amount of protein recommended by the HEALcare program is one that is moderate in quantity.
Since protein helps to control hunger, as your appetite decreases, it is easy to find the right amount of food that your body needs. Eat protein with each meal and consume the amount you need to be comfortable, but not stuffed. Remember, if you get hungry in a few hours you can always have a protein-rich or fat-rich snack between meals.
