3- You gain weight.
A high-protein diet can indeed satisfy your hunger, but eating too much can also make you lose weight. This is especially true if you eat too much animal protein or swallow protein shakes. Meat also usually means extra fat and calories. Many protein shakes have added sugar to make them taste better. Over time, excess calories, whether fat, sugar, or protein, can lead to weight gain. To shift your meals in a healthier direction, aim for a balanced meal that includes lean protein, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. As a general rule, half of your plate should consist of fruit or vegetables, one-quarter protein, and one-quarter starch or whole grains.
