If you want to reduce weight, eat 1.2g of protein per kilogramme of body weight daily, says dietician Signe Svanfeldt.
Generally, you should eat 0.8g of protein per kilogramme of body weight, but if you're trying to lose weight, you may want to eat more
Protein helps develop and maintain cells, produce enzymes and hormones, explains Svanfeldt, who works with healthy eating app Lifesum.
For long-term, healthy weight loss, strengthening muscle through strength training and eating enough protein is as important as shedding fat.
Svanfeldt says, "By eating balanced meals throughout the day, you can limit cravings and stay within your calorie needs."
The greatest protein shake for weight loss has 20g to 15g of protein per serving and comes in several flavours.
