Not only is eating protein good for losing weight. There are additional benefits to eating proteins like beef, pork, chicken, fish, eggs, dairy, beans, lentils and nuts. If you’re not eating protein every day, now is the time to start.
Protein fills you up
Protects your heart
Increased protein and decreased high glycemic index carbs can help protect your heart. Think about the benefits of the Mediterranean diet.
Builds muscle mass
Eating protein plus working out builds muscle mass. We need to eat protein to get the essential amino acid building blocks that our bodies can’t manufacture on their own.
More muscle mass burns more calories and increases resting metabolic rate. More muscle mass makes you stronger and more productive.
