Protein is the most satiating of all macronutrients.
This means it’ll do best at keeping hunger and cravings managed.
It also takes work (uses calories/energy) just to break it down and digest protein, it’s highly thermogenic.
Sufficient protein supports muscle maintenance and lean muscle tissue, thereby keeping metabolism up.
Protein is least likely to be stored as fat, even in a calorie surplus (unless that is a consistent or significant surplus without weight lifting)
I can tell you first hand, when I eat enough protein with my meals and it’s deliciously tasty and satisfying to me, I literally crush my cravings for anything else especially sweet treats and sugars.
If you make only one nutrient specific dietary change this year, increase your protein intake.
Either add an additional serving daily, or add some extra each time you eat.
Focus on protein intake consistently for a month and let me know how it goes.
