Abstract

Body-weight management requires a multi-factorial approach. Recent findings suggest that an elevated protein intake seems to play such a key role in body-weight management, through (i) increased satiety related to increased diet-induced thermogenesis, (ii) its effect on thermogenesis, (iii) body composition, and (iv) decreased energy-efficiency. Supported by these mechanisms a relatively larger weight loss and stronger body-weight maintenance thereafter have been observed.
