Protein is one of the most important substances that is present in every single cell in your entire body – it makes up your organs, bones, muscles, skin, hair, nails, and even certain hormones.
Protein is also known to significantly contribute to weight loss – here are three ways adding more protein into your diet can help you achieve the best body EVER – in a healthy way!
1. Protein helps to control your appetite, curb your hunger and cravings, and leaves you feeling fuller – longer.
Numerous studies have shown that when people increase their intake of protein, they eat fewer calories.
Always choose proteins that are nutrient-rich and lower in saturated fats and calories such sprouted pea and lentil beans, pumpkin seeds, as well as the dynamic green proteins, chlorella and spirulina.
2. Protein influences your metabolic rate because it has the largest thermal effect out of any macronutrient.
You burn MORE calories when your body processes protein compared to carbohydrates and fat…(even while you SLEEP!).
Great sources of vegan protein include: chia seeds, hemp seeds, spinach, peas, quinoa, and almonds. And don’t forget about beans! Lupin beans, white beans, and mung beans are all high in protein and can be a quick addition to any meal.
3. When you are trying to lose weight – what you really want is to get rid of FAT…but often times an unwanted side effect of weight loss is losing a lot of muscle tissue as well.
By increasing your consumption of protein – you don’t lose the muscle but you DO get rid of the fat!
A super easy and convenient way to get more protein in your diet is by incorporating a protein powder but BEWARE….Not all protein powders are created equal…
In fact, a lot of the products out there are highly processed, filled with preservatives, GMOs, and synthetic toxins like aspartame® AND they can even contain heavy metals.
