Did you hear that? The gentle whisper of your jeans begging to fit comfortably again. Time to make a change. You have decided that the time has come to take your health seriously and here’s where protein comes in – your partner in crime on this journey of weight loss and living healthier.
Why protein is so important..
Proteins are the building blocks of your body and play an essential role in muscle retention and recovery. While you focus on tackling those excess pounds, protein helps you to retain your muscles which doesn’t only make your body slimmer, but also stronger and fitter. Win-win situation, right?!
Protein helps you control that hunger craving so you can resist those tempting snacks that secretly lure you to the kitchen. This is because proteins provide a long-satiated feeling and are broken down slowly by the body allowing us to enjoy the energy our meal gives us for a long time. Moreover, it takes a lot of energy to break down protein in our body which means we burn more calories in the process than when breaking down carbohydrates.
Let’s not forget that protein plays an important role in boosting metabolism. They make your body burn those excess pounds, even when you are just sitting on the couch watching a tv show. Sounds like a dream, right?!
Pancakes, chocolate bars.. need to say more?!
The number of grams of protein you need each day depends on your lifestyle and weight. Likewise, a person doing weightlifting needs more protein than someone who does running or doesn’t work out at all. As protein plays a vital role in weight loss, whether you exercise or not, your body needs more protein. You could stick to 1 to 1.8 grams of protein per kilogram of your weight. An easy and loving way to increase your protein intake is a protein shake. Not only is a protein shake easy and quick to make, it is also super delicious and filling. You can make your protein shake with water of milk or add it to your smoothie or quark. So jummy!
