Here's how a High-Protein diet is making you gain weight

More meat

While meat will definitely help you feel full, it also packs more calories than you probably bargained for: A 10-ounce steak, a small restaurant portion can clock in at 1,000 calories.

No energy to work out

Carbs are the best source of fuel for any activity. Cutting them out entirely to make way for protein can also cause you to feel tired, which means you end up working out less.

Not getting enough fiber

Fiber absorbs fluid to help you feel more full and keeps your GI tract in tip top shape by feeding healthy gut bacteria, and lots of studies have linked fiber to weight loss.

Feeling super thirsty

If your mouth is super dry, there’s a protein-linked reason for that. Your kidneys have to work doubly hard to flush out excess protein through your urine, and that can make you really thirsty.

Constipation or diarrhea

If you cut out all whole grains, nuts, seeds, veggies, and fruit, all of which are good sources of fiber, it can lead to issues with digestion including constipation.

Breath gets smelly

If you’re on a super low-carb diet, bad breath is a common sign of ketosis, a process where your body has churned through all your stored carbs and is instead burning fat for energy.

Menstrual cycle changes

Cutting out carbs for too long can stop you from getting your period, too, by burning through too many fat stores, which can change your metabolism in a way that impacts your hormone levels and fertility.
