Protein prevents ups and downs in blood sugar, negating hunger between meals, because it has a very low glycemic index!

Not necessary: It is not necessary but it will not hurt either. To lose weight you must minimize carbohydrate intake (no bread, pasta, sweets, desserts, cheese, junk food) and control portion size.
