Why is protein so important

Recommended Posts

I'd like to know why eating Protein is so important. I went out for dinner last night and ordered a steak for the first time since I was banded 5 weeks ago. I was nervous as I know many people cannot tolerate steak. I was lucky, it was absolutely fine for me probably because I have only had one fill.

The thing is I haven't noticed any difference to my appetite until I had this steak and I felt full up very quickly. Am I right in guessing that's why Protein is so important?

Protein is important for several reasons. 1- it aids healing 2- it helps you feel full longer. I'm sure there are other reasons that I can't think of.

I banded about 6 weeks ago. Are you on fb? There is a private group of people who banded in august. Look me up- crystal cash white- and I'll add you!
