Not only that but increasing protein as a caloric source will also help you burn off fat. Its why protein powders work, they are devoid of fat. Your body will actually utilize your own fat stores to process protein. Its also why Atkins and paleodiet work.
The your historically high carb diet may be part of the reason you are overweight. Maybe add some skinless chicken for breakfast.
Dont go overboard on protein though. Like everything in life there needs to be moderation. The brain needs carbs to function properly.
You also need saturated fats as well as "obviously "polyunsaturated fats like omega 3s.
