The Power of Protein
Fed up with Diets? Tired? Overweight? Optimizing your protein intake through Formula 1 may help you to lose weight!
Why Do We Need Protein?
We need protein to stay strong and healthy. If we don’t eat enough protein our bodies will steal it from our muscles and organs. In fact, protein is essential for the development of our muscles, which leads to an increase in the burning of calories. Our muscles could be described as ‘fat furnaces’ as they keep our metabolism running high.
The carbohydrate confusion
Traditionally, we were taught that carbohydrates should provide our body with its primary supply of energy. However, many people have confused fast-releasing carbohydrates (pasta, cakes) and slow-releasing carbohydrates (whole grains, vegetables), eating too many of the former — the tempting, convenient, tasty variety! Most of us lead sedentary lives, so any excess energy (from carbohydrate-rich food) is stored as body fat.
Today’s over-consumption of fast-releasing carbohydrates on a daily basis is creating a global population of “overweight” carbohydrate-eaters!
Our bodies need a balanced diet for optimum health. The right daily intake of protein, carbohydrates and fat are the determining factors when we try to achieve and maintain optimum health.
It makes sense then to reduce your carbohydrate intake, choose ‘good’ unsaturated fats that provide research-proven health benefits, ensure you eat plenty of fresh wholefoods such as fruit and vegetables, and increase your protein intake in line with your body’s needs. Remember to use lean protein that doesn’t contain significant levels of fat.
Protein helps to satisfy!
When you eat a balanced diet with the right balance of protein, fats and carbohydrates for your body, your appetite is also satisfied, reducing the desire to snack! See how well this method works for you if you’re trying to lose weight while battling hunger-pangs between meals.
