It can be argued that protein is the most important nutrient needed for optimal development. It is the foundation of every human body, every living cell and your body uses protein to build and repair body tissues, to make enzymes, hormones, and is used as important building blocks of bones, blood, skin, cartilage and muscles. Protein also assists in energy metabolism and cellular processes, and also defends the body against disease via optimal immune function.
Building Muscle And Building Up Your Immune Systems
If you are lacking protein in your diet, this will weaken your immune system. Proteins make up the antibodies of your immune system and are also part of the interferon that support immune system cells and attack viruses, bacteria or other foreign substances in the body.
We all know that protein is vital to building muscle, but it is also an important factor if you are aiming to lose weight. Body fat is reduced through a caloric deficit, meaning you are taking in less calories than normal. This does not mean you need to go on a diet and restrict yourself of calories, instead it may just mean to be more conscious of you choose to eat.
Choosing A Protein Rich Diet
When we eat protein-rich foods, it takes a lot for your body to break down this macromolecule. Due to the fact that it takes a while to break down, this means you will experience a slower digestion which will aid in making you feel fuller for longer. If you are fuller for longer, this will reduce the probability of you wanting to binge-eat, packing on the extra unnecessary calories. You are able to consume a greater amount of protein than either carbohydrate or fats without putting on the body fat (when comparing calories to calories).
