If you hate to diet, it may be that you’re just eating the wrong foods. University of Illinois researchers found that people who ate higher amounts of protein were

more likely to stick to their diets for 1 year than those who ate more carbohydrates instead. The reason: “Protein is more satiating than carbohydrates are, so people weren’t as hungry as those in the other group,” says study author Donald L. Layman, Ph.D. “They also had more energy and didn’t feel as tired.” Turns out, the dieters who best stuck to their eating plan consumed a diet that provided 40% of its calories from carbohydrates and 30% from protein.
