Essential Guide to Protein #TheFitHappyMinute

from myfitnesspal blog

Protein is necessary for many things. Whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle, recover from a tough workout, feel more satiated at mealtime, or simply maintain good health, it’s important to get adequate amounts of healthy protein.

Protein is a crucial component of every cell in our bodies. It’s used to build and repair tissues (like skeletal muscle, bone, hair, fingernails, cartilage, skin, and blood), as well as make enzymes and hormones that help regulate metabolism, growth, and many other things. Like carbohydrates and fat, protein also provides energy, but because it has so many other important functions and can’t be stored, the body relies first on carbohydrates and fat for energy.

But just like carbs and fat, excess protein gets converted and stored as fat.
