Fewer Food Cravings
The only way to lose weight is to take in fewer calories than you burn. An unfortunate side effect of that process is hunger. You may be troubled by cravings for unhealthy food even if your body is fully nourished.
One strategy for warding off these hunger signals is eating a diet high in protein – and tempeh fits the bill. One cup offers 31 grams of healthy, plant-based protein. Including tempeh in your daily diet will help you feel full after meals and avoid the snacking that can derail any diet.
More than that, some studies indicate that diets high in protein jump-start a process called thermogenesis, which boosts metabolism. The end result is that your body burns through even more calories as food is digested.
