Power Up The Protein
When it comes to changing your eating habits to achieve weight loss, a little protein goes a long way. Though we don’t require you to purchase any prepackaged meals, you can make some simple changes to your daily protein intake that can boost the power of our healthy weight loss program. Protein provides the building blocks of amino acids that you need for keeping your body strong. Protein helps repair muscle, build your immunity, and build enzymes that break down substances in your body. When you don’t get enough protein in your diet, it could result in the following symptoms:
- A slower metabolism
- Difficulty losing weight
- Trouble building muscle
- Low energy levels
- Poor concentration
- Mood swings
- Muscle, bone, and joint pain
- Low immunity
If this sounds like you, try adding more protein to your diet for better results. Though your body can make some protein, you can find it in foods such as:
If you try not to eat animal based products, you can also find good protein in the following:
- Beans and Lentils
- Bread and Flour
- Peas and Corn
- Nuts and Seeds
Too Much Can Be Too Much
Though some diets advocate for high protein consumption, this is not the best idea for weight loss or building muscle mass. Stick with what you like to eat and just incorporate a little extra protein whenever you can. Continue to eat fats, fiber, and carbs to keep your body running in optimum shape.
If you’re ready to embark on a weight loss journey, it begins with a healthy weight loss program and a little bit of protein. We’ll provide the tools to help you control cravings, boost metabolism, and detoxify your body. You’ll not only lose weight, but your body functions will improve to help you feel great long after the weight is gone.
