Pump Up Power
Protein makes up the building blocks of organs, muscles, skin, and hormones. Your body needs protein to maintain and repair tissues. Studies show that eating protein can also help you lose weight and belly fat while increasing your muscle mass and strength. The National Academy of Medicine recommends that adults get a minimum of 7 grams protein for every 20 pounds of body weight per day. However, many health and fitness experts believe you need more than that to function optimally. When we eat foods for protein, we also eat everything that comes alongside it: the various fats, fiber, sodium, and more. It’s this protein “package” that’s likely to make a difference for health.
The Kreation foods and beverages listed here can help you pump up the power in a protein-rich diet.
