The fight-fighting benefits of protein


Protein is a necessary part of a healthy diet, and with good reason. Getting the correct protein intake has numerous benefits – including weight loss.

Protein is a “macronutrient”, which means the body requires a lot of it. The body does not store protein the way it does carbohydrates or fat, so getting a regular amount is important.  We often hear of people turning to low-carb/high-protein diets when they want to shift excess weight. But how exactly does this work?

When turning to a low-calorie diet, the body turns to protein to convert into amino acids, which act as “fuel” for the body. Therefore when cutting out carbs, the need for protein increases. High-protein diets also keep you feeling full for longer, therefore decreasing hunger.

Studies have shown that people sticking to high-protein diets took in approximately 200 calories less than those who didn’t, which in turn accounted for weight loss. A recent study published in Clinical Nutrition concludes that protein can reduce the amount of fat found in liver cells, improving fatty liver disease which can cause obesity and in turn diabetes.

Protein can be introduced into your diet through powder format, great for throwing into smoothies on the go, or in natural sources such as eggs, meat and dairy. For vegetarians, tofu, quinoa and tempeh are all high in protein and low in saturated fats, making them an excellent choice to keep your diet high in protein, and fat at bay!
