Contrary to expectations, population studies have shown that a high intake of protein lead to long-term weight gain. We found, that among overweight and obese individuals, those with a high intake of protein had lower weight gain. May be the beneficial effects of a high intake of protein in relation to weight maintenance are only present for individuals that are obese.

Planlagt højt proteinindtag i behandling af fedme fører til vægttab. Ude i befolkningen ser det dog ud til, at de der spiser meget protein også tager mest på. Blandt overvægtige og fede ses dog mindre vægtstigning med et højt proteinindtag.
