High-protein may assist with weight control and lower cardiac risk.
Higher protein diets are still a common approach to weight loss. Most dieters have tried them. The problem with suggesting them is that there is limited research to support their use and some research shows that the addition of many sources of protein may actually increase your risk of heart disease. Any future research that might show higher protein diets lower cardiometabolic risk factors would potentially indicate that higher protein diets that result in weight loss might have a place in treating diabetes and heart disease.
