5 Mistakes With Gut Health ... See MoreSee Less

Here’s an excellent little guide for protein content of different foods.

I noticed in the comments on the original post that many people have asked ‘but why do we need this?’ And with all the hullabaloo lately about eating more plant-based foods (which I agree with, just not at the expense of protein) here are a few reasons:

🔸 Protein helps keep you fuller for longer, because it keeps your blood sugar levels steady. Keeping blood sugar levels from see-sawing also helps you maintain energy levels throughout the day, and helps to reduce sugar cravings.

🔸 Protein is needed for repair of your body tissues - including your gut lining, which in many people is not in a healthy state. If you don’t take in enough protein through your diet, your body will break down your muscle tissue to obtain the protein it needs for this process. This is not a good scenario as we need muscle tissue - particularly women.

🔸 Protein is vital for a healthy immune system

🔸 Protein can help you manage your weight. Protein is actually more difficult for your body to break down, so you burn more calories just by eating it, plus because it helps curb your appetite it makes sticking to a healthier diet far easier.Depending on your body size, you need at least 20 or 30 grams of protein per meal and probably more. (60 to 90 grams per day)

What does 20 grams look like?
