Quinoa Burns Calories
Did you know that eating quinoa can burn calories?
It was found in 3 research studies that a high protein diet help to burn up to 100 calories per meal (Johnston et al, 2002; Veldhorst et al, 2009; Westerterp et al., 2010). Quinoa as a staple is considered a high protein meal as it is high in good quality protein since it is a complete protein that contains 9 essential amino acids.
It was also found in one study that by overfeeding protein, it can burn up to 260 calories (George et al., 2015).
It is recommended that if you take 25% to 35% of protein daily, it will be effective in losing fats and weight.
You can calculate the amount of protein intake daily to burn calories based on your weight.
