Health benefits – protein, the beneficial effects in weight management

Most people should consume 46 to 56g of protein every day to maintain overall health, notes

Regular intake of protein can also be beneficial for weight loss.

When eating protein for weight loss, you can decrease your calorie intake and reap the same weight-loss benefits from protein if you replace some of your animal-based proteins with plant-based proteins.

Provides Energy

  • Protein provides you with sustainable energy to keep you going throughout the day.
  • Your body digests protein slowly, so it provides you with a constant supply of energy while it is digesting.
  • The sustained energy can help you reach your weight-loss goals, by allowing you to eat less and still get quality energy.
  • Also, increased energy will help you feel better about yourself, which can help keep you motivated to achieve your weight loss goals.

Keep You Full

  • Eating protein while you are trying to lose weight can be beneficial because it fills you up and keeps you feeling full longer.
  • Feeling full for a longer period of time can help you reduce your intake of unnecessary calories, by allowing you to eat less and avoid temptations throughout the day.
  • This decrease in calories will help increase your weight loss.

Maintains Amino Acids

  • When you eat protein as a way to lose weight, it will help ensure you get all the essential amino acids, which are part of a well-balanced diet.
  • Essential amino acids are necessary to provide your cells with the nutrients to constantly renew and rebuild throughout your body.

Burns More Calories

  • When you eat protein you increase your calorie burn.
  • According to the Disabled World website, when you body digests protein it takes more energy than when your body digests carbohydrates.
  • The increased use of energy to digest the protein means your body is burning more calories.
  •  So, consuming protein may increase your weight loss.

Builds Muscles

  • Protein helps your body build muscle and maintain its current muscles.
  •  The more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn in all your activities, even when you’re asleep.
  •  If you’re doing strength training as part of your weight loss routine, your body will benefit from protein.

Neways created the FitChoice Programme knowing that it is important to develop life-long healthy eating and exercise habits that will help you reset your habits and make long-term, sustainable lifestyle changes.

One key is identifying patterns in your life so you can decide where to make changes.

As part of your FitChoice programme, use the online journal to keep track of what you eat and the circumstances surrounding your eating.

Doing this will help you become more aware of your eating habits, so you can mindfully adjust these habits as needed to meet your goals.

For each day, make sure you record everything you eat and answer the questions about how you felt, who you ate with, and how aware you were of your hunger and fullness.

The journal also includes places for recording your physical activity and your FitChoice supplementation.

As you track your eating behaviour and make adjustments, you will see progress.

To access these tools, including the journal,  take the Find Your Path Self-Assessment
