Why eat high protein?
Protein is one of the macronutrients your body needs to function! It is responsible for building and repairing tissue, making enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals, and is a component of every cell in our body. Most Canadians already get enough protein in their diet, but vegans and vegetarians might be lacking protein due to the most readily available protein rich foods being animal products. People looking to gain muscle or lose body fat may also benefit from a diet that is higher in protein.
High protein for weight-loss
There are two main reasons for incorporating higher levels of protein into your diet when trying to lose weight.
The first is that protein helps to suppress appetite and cravings. Protein will increase the appetite suppressing hormones (GLP-1, peptide YY and cholecystokinin) and decrease the hunger hormone ghrelin (1). This effect can make eating at a calorie deficit easier, since you won’t feel as hungry, and may even cause you to naturally eat a bit less without even trying. It can also help to reduce cravings, which is arguably the hardest part about dieting!
Maintaining muscle mass is the second reason! When losing weight, what people typically want to lose is body fat, not muscle. But when losing weight, muscle mass tends to also deteriorate as a side effect. Since protein breaks down into amino acids which are the building blocks for muscle, incorporating extra protein into your diet when losing weight can help prevent muscle loss, especially when paired with strength training.
High protein for muscle growth
Protein alone won’t help you grow muscle, but strength training and protein will. When you workout, you create microtears in your muscle. Amino acids (which are broken down from protein) help to repair these microtears, making your muscle bigger and stronger. If you don’t consume enough protein, your body will not have sufficient amino acids to repair these tears, which can lead to muscle loss and injuries. There have also been studies proving that a higher protein diet can lead to increased muscle growth.
So those are a few reasons to consume extra protein! Now here are 3 custom high protein breakfast bowls you can order at PSB Cafe!
