Are you eating enough protein? .
I was amazed how little protein I consumed until I started tracking macros. Protein is essential for numerous processes in the body like hormone production, enzyme production, improved immune system, and muscle and tissue repair. It can also be beneficial for weight loss for a couple reasons: helps with satiety, and causes a thermogenic effect where the body uses more energy to digest proteins.
Now the body isn't too picky about protein source, whether it's plant or muscle protein. Eating a variety of lean protein sources will ensure you get all essential amino acids. For muscle growth and repair a good rule of thumb is to consume your body weight in g. If you have a lot of body fat, you can decrease this by 20 g or more depending. .
Try to include some form of protein at each meal and snack. This will help spread out protein intake, and help increase your overall daily intake.
If you still aren't eating enough protein with whole foods, supplementing is a great way to add another 20 to 30 g of protein. I prefer to have a whey protein shake after I workout because it contains all essential amino acids, easily digested, and super tasty. My favorite is @bodylogix natural whey. High quality whey protein with natural ingredients, no artificial sweeteners or ingredients, and affordable. Mixed perfectly with my frozen banana, spinach, creatine, unsweetened vanilla almond milk and cinnamon!👍
