High-protein diet best for losing belly fat

Eating a high protein diet is a more effective way to reduce fat round the belly than regular work-outs in the gym

Eating a high protein diet is a more effective way to reduce fat round the belly than regular work-outs in the gym.
The discovery has been made by researchers who put three groups of overweight women through their paces in the gym. But although the gym workout was the same for each group, the diet was different each time.
The women were put either on a low-protein/low-dairy diet, a low-protein/medium-dairy diet, or a high-protein/high-dairy diet. The high-protein/high-dairy group lost twice as much belly fat as the low-protein group.
The one concern: the study was funded by the Dairy Farmers of Canada and the US Dairy Research Institute, so you may want to take the results with - a pinch of salt.
