There is a lot of misinformation about the protein diet out there – so this article was written to clarify what the diet is, what the benefits of a protein diet are, medically and cosmetically; as well as how to use the protein diet for your health.
The protein diet is so simple, that people end up getting confused if that is what the protein diet is – it literally is eating only lean fat free lean meats with beef at the top priority, combined with any leafy green (spinach, kale and so on).
Okay, let me do this again – for clarity’s sake.

Rules of the Protein Diet
The protein diet is a tough diet to be on – and if you have any kind of sugar addiction, it will get rid of it within 7 days of being on the diet.
The diet should be followed for as long as you have the condition you are working to resolve – as this will help at a cellular level and provide the building blocks needed for recovery.
In today’s time of junk food and various ingredients used in processed foods, we have way too many foods with hidden ingredients which could be affecting our health – this diet is one way to really detox from it – it isn’t for the faint hearted.
Is the Protein diet the same or similar to the Paleo Diet?
This is often something that people ask about – and yes, whilst it is similar, it has a different purpose to the Paleo diet – the protein diet is meant to be set for a certain amount of time, and then you should be able to go back to your eating various kinds of foods, even sugar to a small extent – the Protein diet is a medical diet, not a lifestyle like the Paleo diet.
