I have several friends who have lost weight with high protein diets. Do you recommend them? Are they effective and are they healthy?

There are a couple of important and valuable concepts that high protein diets offer: Avoid simple carbohydrates, such as white flour found in white bread and pasta, and refined sugars found in cakes and cookies. Protein is important for feeling satiated (full and satisfied). However, there are also problems with high protein diets: High protein foods many times are often loaded with fat -- for example, meats, eggs, and cheese. Look for whole grains and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. These foods provide fiber and lots of vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants, all of which can help protect your heart and your health. Also, when selecting protein on any eating plan, it is important to eat only lean protein that is low in fat (e.g., fish, beans, and legumes).
