Overweight?: Stop the protein powder. High protein diets are not healthy, as we knew well before Atkins made us forgot decades of good research. Now studies are showing again that high protein diets are increasing chronic illnesses. As far saggy and puffy, keep exercises and drop a few pounds to lower body fat and show off those gorgeous toned pecs lying underneath! If you are already thin, see a doc
