Just by eating foods high in protein, the body will burn more calories than eating other food groups, according to research published on the US National Library of Medicine.

One study revealed eating a high-protein diet can increase the amount of calories burned by around 80 to 100 a day.

The plan will also boost the metabolism meaning fat can be burned more quickly and slimmers can start to shape up.

The number of calories burned while digesting protein is higher than those burned after eating carbs or fat.

A study revealed the body burns between 20 and 30 per cent of calories while digesting protein, and only five to ten per cent for carbs and zero to three percent for fat.

On top of this, protein is one of the most filling food groups which means it can reduce hunger and appetite.

Slimmers following this plan can naturally cut back on how much they are eating without needing to count calories.

Although it can be had at any time, filling up on high protein foods in the morning can help slimmers start their day right and make them less likely to choose unhealthy snacks.

So, what can you eat?

High-protein foods including meats, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts and legumes.

Some people may also choose to boost their protein intake by taking protein supplements like whey protein powder.
