Myth - More protein
There is an opinion that the predominance of protein in food, that is, a violation of the protein-fat-carbohydrate system, leads to fat burning. And that's not true! Carbohydrates are the building blocks of muscle. Perhaps a protein diet will help you lose a few pounds, but half of that weight will come from muscle and water. Not fat as originally planned.
A what then?
Then the weight will return. And unfortunately, not with water and muscles, but with fat, from which we so diligently got rid of.
Never disrupt the protein-fat-carbohydrate system?
Protein imbalance is possible only in one case - this is drying. It should be applied sporadically and with a clear understanding of the reasons and goals. Otherwise, drying will cause a lot of trouble in the future.
