Eat plenty of protein - 10 weight loss rules - Women's Health & Fitness
3. Eat plenty of protein

Protein is the building block of muscle tissue (among many other tissues in the body). When you are training hard, you need to ensure you are getting enough protein to aid with recovery and repair of your muscle cells in order to achieve hypertrophy. Protein will also help keep you fuller for longer and it has a thermic effect, meaning  that it takes additional energy/calories to digest, so it’s also great for fat loss.
