The Protein Lesson
Protein Is Good!
Eating protein in every meal is essential for achieving your best health, body composition, and performance.
Without an adequate protein intake, our bodies can’t function well at all.
Fact: Consuming more protein will help maintain an optimal
body composition (in other words, help you stay leaner and more muscular) and a strong immune system, good athletic performance, and a healthy metabolism. It promotes satiety (i.e. make you feel full longer) and consequently helps you manage your body weight. In other words, we need a small amount of protein to survive, but we need a lot more to thrive.
Fact: You can’t simply eat a 16-pound steak and call it a day The body needs its protein stores to be continually replenished, which means that you should consume moderate amounts of protein at regular intervals – this means eating protein with every meal.
