Check out this website I found at thaimarathon.com

Muscles use a large amount of calories to keep themselves nourished. They eagerly await those calories that you are ingesting on a daily basis. It isn’t too difficult to hypothesize then that the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn. The most important aspect of this is that your muscles don’t have to be particularly working out in order to reap the benefits. A bulging Hulk will burn more calories by sitting down and watching TV then your average fat-bellied, couch potato. The reason again, more muscles equals more calorie burning, regardless of what state your body happens to be in.

You will benefit more from fat burning diets with a high protein content because it is working with your muscles to burn more calories.
