Why Protein is Important to Weight Loss
Proteins are a large part of the human body. Involved in almost all cells, from red blood cells to bone marrow, muscle, skin - even neurotransmitters are repaired and created using the amino acid chains that form proteins.
We cannot synthesize most of the proteins we need to regenerate our cells, so we need to consume them in our diets. This means that, according to the Australian Council for Health we need to eat between 54g and 62g of protein per day (for an adult male).
When it comes to weight loss, protein-rich diets help in several ways. Protein gives you long-lasting energy, making you feel fuller for longer and reducing the 'craving' for other foods.
Protein has a higher thermic effect than other foods. This means that digesting proteins actually takes more calories - so adds to the calorie burn of your daily life.
If you are looking to increase your exercise levels or take on new physical challenges, a protein-rich diet can help you recover quickly - from the exercise itself, from any injury and even from illness. Increasing the amount of protein that you consume will help your cells to regenerate, helping recovery. Protein-rich diets will also help you as you age - by supporting muscle mass and reducing instances of osteoporosis, so you can stay active for longer.
Not Just a Physical Effect
While protein-protein meals are great for weight loss and improving physical performance, the effect of increased protein intake can also be seen in your hair, nails and skin. As keratin, the protein found in the outer layer of skin, your hair and your nails, is created through the ingestion of proteins, these areas are vastly improved when more protein is consumed.
People who eat a protein-rich diet are known to have improved mood, better sleep and more focus - so the effects of eating healthily come not just from losing weight or improved physical ability.
