Protein can help keep you full all day and boost your energy. You may find yourself eating less when you up your protein as well. This is because protein-rich foods don't travel as quickly from the stomach to the intestine. This means your stomach empties at a much slower rate – so you feel fuller longer, and as a result, eat less. The body also has to use more energy to digest protein – you actually burn more calories in the process. When choosing how you'll get your daily recommended dose of protein though, try to incorporate as many plant-based sources as possible.
