The power of protein

Understanding the power of protein
  • Protein is the building block of human health.
  • Protein is an essential component of virtually every cell in the body.
  • The right amount of protein for your body can increase the feeling of fullness. Protein assists in keeping hunger at bay and helps control binge eating.
  • The more lean body mass you have, the higher your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the more calories you burn at rest. Muscle burns calories and greatly aids weight loss.
  • Not enough protein means your body "steals" it from muscles and organs.
  • People who do not eat often, or an incorrect amount of calories, tend to hold onto weight and cannot understand why the weight won't drop. The body goes into survival mode and holds onto excess for "protection".
  • Daily intake of the right amount of protein for your body helps to curb hunger while supporting the maintenance of your lean body mass.
