Eating an adequate amount of protein is KEY to seeing results. In this post you will read about the 5 Reasons To Eat More Protein.
Proteins are the main building blocks of your body. They’re used to make muscles, tendons, organs, and skin, as well as enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, and various molecules.
Eating an adequate amount of protein is KEY to building muscle and adhering to your diet.
Proteins are fundamental in facilitating tissue growth (ahhem! MUSCLE!) and can also be used as a fuel source for the body. You will find proteins in EVERY cell of our bodies-hair, skin, nails, muscle, etc. They help to carry out many necessary reactions such as muscle contraction, digestion, nervous system function, and more! So…pretty darn important.
A high protein intake boosts metabolism, reduces appetite and changes several weight-regulating hormones. One study in overweight men showed that increasing protein to 25% of calories reduced cravings by 60% and the desire to snack at night by half. (1)
Studies show that protein is by far the most filling. It helps you feel more full — with less food. (2)
Adequate protein intake promotes satiety and helps you feel fuller for longer periods. By reducing hunger and preventing energy dips, protein-rich meals can significantly reduce the likelihood of overeating or succumbing to cravings.
2. Burn More
Protein has a higher thermic effect of food compared to carbohydrates and fats, meaning it requires more energy to digest, absorb, and process. This thermogenic effect leads to increased calorie burning during digestion and metabolism.
3. Preserve Muscle Mass
During a calorie-restricted diet, the body may break down muscle tissue for energy. However, consuming sufficient protein can help preserve lean muscle mass, ensuring that the weight loss primarily comes from fat stores rather than muscle tissue. Maintaining muscle mass is essential for a toned and defined physique, as well as for maintaining a healthy metabolism.
4. Increase Your Energy
Protein has a higher thermic effect compared to carbohydrates and fats, but it also requires more energy for the body to utilize. This higher energy expenditure is due to the complex process of protein synthesis and the energy required for maintaining and repairing muscle tissue. By increasing protein intake, you can potentially boost your energy expenditure, helping you burn more calories throughout the day, even during rest and recovery periods.
5. Improved Recovery
Intense workouts can lead to muscle damage, and adequate protein consumption is crucial for efficient recovery and repair. Protein provides the necessary amino acids for muscle tissue repair, helping you bounce back faster from their workouts.
