When you are trying to lose weight, your protein levels need to be high because:
1. Protein burns more calories than fat or carbs
2. Protein is more satiating
3. Protein helps you maintain muscle mass while you are losing body fat
*Bonus - If you are over the age of 40, your protein levels should be higher because your body doesn't process it as well as it did when you were younger.
