EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROTEIN

NATURAL SOURCES OF PROTEIN

These natural foods are high in protein:

  • Meat
  • Fish and seafood
  • Eggs
  • Milk and milk products
  • Tofu and soy products+
  • Legumes
  • Quinoa
  • Nuts

BIOLOGICAL VALUE

When it comes to protein, you’ll most likely hear the term “biological value” (or BV) at some point. The biological value of a hen’s egg is fixed at 100. The higher the biological value of a certain food, the more similar the protein contained is to our own body’s protein, and the easier it can be transformed into endogenous protein.
A few examples for dishes with an ideal BV:
  • Casseroles with egg and potatoes
  • Crepes
  • Meat patties with mashed potatoes
  • Chili con carne
  • Chili sin carne

MORE PROTEIN = MORE MUSCLES?

You wish!  Working out is what counts when it comes to your dream body.  By taking in more protein than your body needs to build muscle, you don’t just magically turn into a muscle man (or woman). Protein also contains calories. If your body gets too much energy (calories), it will start building fat depots.

MEALS AND PROTEIN

Add a small portion of protein to all your meals to provide your body with sufficient protein throughout the day. Plus, what many people don’t know is that protein keeps you feeling full longer.
