The basic message is reasonably correct, but I don't know what they mean by "inner fibre"??? It is true that animal proteins do increase thermogenesis to a greater degree than carbs and fats, but what I mentioned to you in my previous posting still holds true. Eat lean, fat-trimmed meat like chicken breasts without the skin, fat-trimmed pork, venison, ostrich - these are the leanest meats and one should still not have more than 50 g a sitting. Actually the protein RDA is about 60g a day for adults, so most South Africans eat more protein than is required. Vegetable protein may not increase your thermogenesis as much as animal protein, but vegetable proteins like soya and other legumes are very low in fat, do not contain any cholesterol and have a low energy content because of their high fibre content, so they are an ideal slimming food.
