Protein for losing weight

May 20, 2009

There are many ways in losing weight. But the important things you need to know are your body's protein requirements. Protein is very important in losing weight because it will help you to build and maintain lean muscle. If you don’t have enough protein in your diet, you will not able in build your ideal body shape. Protein will also help you to control your appetite, making weight loss easier! If you don't eat enough protein, you will feel fatigue, moodiness, depression, poor memory, and poor sleep. You will find yourself out of shape and overweight. The other thing that will happen of you don’t enough protein is your body will steal protein from your muscles, organs and the heart! Your metabolic process work slowly and increased risk for a variety of diseases. But you should be careful in consuming protein. You can find protein in red meat, chicken, turkey, fish and cheese. If you tried to eat all the protein your body required by eating meats (and many cheeses), you would be consuming too many calories. Protein in these forms often comes with extra fat, means unwanted calories. This would work counter to your weight loss goals so we should go carefully with these forms of protein.

Soy protein is the highest quality plant protein available. It is a great source for the amino acids your body needs as well as the antioxidants that help maintain healthy cells. Soy protein does not have the high fat calories, and is long acting and slowly metabolized (helping you to keep feeling full). Some high-protein, low calorie drinks can help meet these protein needs as well as being an enjoyable food source.

You should find out your personal lean body mass for know how much your protein requirement for healthy weight loss. The general rule for healthy weight loss is 1 gram of protein for every pound of lean body mass. If you weigh 100 pounds, then your maximum level of protein would be 100 grams.
