If you still didn’t choose your diet regime, we would like to suggest you a protein diet. You need protein at all stages of your life. It’s the major component of all cells, including muscle and bone. Protein diet will help you to grow and develop your muscle and protect your body.
The lack of protein leads to serious and significant disease and injury.
Your body is mainly made of proteins and water. And we all remember only about water. But why do we miss the necessity of protein? It’s one of major components for our body structure. You don’t have to be afraid of eating too much protein. There is no danger for you. If you eat much protein, you will just feel fuller longer.
You can find protein in such food as meat, poultry, seafood, beans and peas, eggs, processed soy products, nuts and seeds.
The question which might come to your mind now is how much protein you need per day. The range of protein intake is anywhere from 10% to 35% of total calories for normal, healthy adults.
For example, on a,800-calorie diet, you could safely eat anywhere from 45 grams (10% of calories) to 158 grams (35% of calories) of protein per day.
But the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein is:
• Men: 56 grams a day
• Women: 46 grams a day
Don’t eat before your workout, if you are trying to lose weight. If you are exercising on an empty stomach, your body will use stored fats as energy. It’s better if you eat after the workout. But don’t eat too heavy food, eat just fruits or dairy.
