Lose 62% More Fat Eating This Amino Acid

A new echelon in the chain of the process of losing weight has been studied and proved. It is all about an amino acid easily found in some proteins, which means that increasing the amount of these proteins in your daily diet may help you lose weight from fats, while at the same time keeping your muscles intact. Check out this short but important article by Christina Sarich.



Research shows that eating more protein, and specifically one amino acid in particular, can boost your metabolic rate 3 times more than eating a diet high in fat and simple carbs.

This amino acid is called leucine.

What is a fairly new discovery in the ‘eat more protein’ camp is that a specific amino acid does a lot of the fat burning for you.  It helps to prevent the loss of muscle when you are losing fat, as well as helps to retain muscle that is normally lost due to aging. You may know that muscle burns more than fat, so it is very important to retain muscle when you are trying to slim down.

One of the simplest and most effective tricks to losing weight may be to increase your protein intake, but to make sure you are eating enough leucine. The amino acid leucine can be found in the following foods:

Egg Whites 4233 mg
Organic Soy Protein Isolate 4226 mg
Organic Free Range Chicken 3220 mg
Wild Caught Tuna 3574 mg
Pacific Cod 3459 mg
Buffalo 3456 mg
Raw Spirulina 3915 mg

If you decide to try this help in your quest to lose weight, always be sure that yoor food is also safe and natural. Check labels to avoid products with GMO ingredients or other undesired harmful chemicals.
