Why Protein?



Recommended Posts

I know that Protein rebuilds the muscle from loosing weight but why is it important to get in 40-60 grams of protein a day to assist weight loss?

From what I understand, we need the Protein to prevent muscle loss- so we lose fat instead of muscle. Hope this helps.

Think about what muscle is in your body...your heart is muscle. You need it to regain stregnth, to keep your muscles, including your heart, healthy, and if you do that, your healthy body will burn fat instead of trying to survive off of it.

You're taking in far less calories daily, the Protein is where your body will get energy from. Simply put, without sufficient protein you can feel weak, have headaches and not really function well. So, if the majority of your calories are coming from protein, you'll have enough to live on and still lose weight.

Protein has a direct link to lowering insulin & insulin resistance. High protein diets have also been linked to weight loss of belly fat, along with increased memory, stamina, body self-repair, etc etc etc.... I'd guess that's at least a partial reason why.

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
