If you ask me its a comlplete NO NO. It aids weight loss for sure but you lose other things as well. For protein to work as it is supposed to for growth, repair, maintenance, gene expression, the body should get its supply of carbohydrates and fat. Without these nutrients , protein is a waste.

When too much of protein is consumed at one time, it doesnot get stacked away for future use, instead it is converted to fat by process called deamination.  It will just load the liver where it will get broken dowm to glucose

Whatever source you choose, veg or non veg or a supplement, without a balanced diet , protein by itself will only lead to irritability, sleeplessness, constipation, mood swimgs and muscle wasting.

High protein diet does lead to weight loss- When the body is given only protein and very little or no carbohydrate, the body first gets rid of its glycogen stores (glucose or sugar stored in the liver and muscles) and loses water. After that, it actually attracts the muscle tissue itself, burning the amino acids for energy. The result is muscle catabolismand lean masss loss. Accordingly, regular exercise and a smart use of carbohydrates in the diet lead to protein sparing.

06 September 2017
Why do we avoid coconut chutney with idly or dosa, For your knowledge coconut in the chutney adds fat to the carbohydrate rich idli or dosa, thereby actually lowering its glycemic index and the rate at which it gets converted to fat. Coconut is rich in medium chain triglycerides( MCT), which helps in digestion and improves metabolism. MCT are used as fat loss and edurance building supplements because they are readily burned as energy and not stored as fat. So eat your idli with the chutney.

  If you care about your health eat your carbs , because in the absense of carbs FAT CANNOT BE UTILISED FOR ENERGY. Carbs help you burn fat, keep your bowels clean, reduce bloating and aids metabolism as they provide all important vitamin B responsible for converting food to energy. Choose slow carbs that retain fibre as their GI is low (The Glycemic Index (GI) is a relative ranking of carbohydrate in foods according to how they affect blood glucose levels. Carbohydrates with a low GI value (55 or less) are more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolised and cause a lower and slower rise in blood glucose and, therefore insulin levels). The low GI foods are jowar, barley, bajra, nachni, legumes,dals,wholewheat.  Remember your body can take high GI food only after exercise when your body needs instant sugar.  If you care about your health eat your carbs , because in the absense of carbs FAT CANNOT BE UTILISED FOR ENERGY.
