It is true that protein may help you lose weight, but just like the other macronutrients, you can eat to much of something that is good.
When people hear that protein can help them lose weight, they then get to carried away and start stocking up on protein shakes, bars, and big portions of meat for every meal.
In reality, the average 140-pound woman who trains 3-5 days a week should be eating around 50 grams of protein a day, and a man at say 180-pounds with the same activity level would need around 80 grams of protein.
If you eat more than that they is a high chance that your body will store it as fat and that is not good.
