Going on a protein diet or a high protein diet can be helpful in losing weight. If you take regular exercise and are also restricting your daily caloric intake, maintaining high protein will help to prevent loss of muscle mass. Since muscle mass requires energy even when resting, it is important to maintain muscle if fat loss is your main goal.
