THE POWER OF PROTEIN
Whey powder and casein could be your secret weapon in weight loss, shooting burning calories for several hours. A new Swiss study found that the whey sprint carries the highest, while the casein is more useful to delay hunger. Try mixing milk powders, since 80% of the milk protein is casein.
LOSE MORE SLOWLY
If you lose weight too quickly, you also lose muscle. A Norwegian study notes that the ideal pace to lose weight is 0.5 kilos weekly. Male athletes lost 0.5 kilos a week generating lean muscle mass, but not those who lost almost 1 kilo weekly.

Dirty air can affect your diet. This claim researchers at Ohio State University (USA), which exposed a group of mice to environmental pollution and observed an increase in abdominal fat, sugar and higher insulin resistance than those mice that clean air breathing.
