”Low Protein seem counter the current trend where high protein diets get the weight off.”
Or does it really?
On researching the stats, higher than 75% of people on the diet either get sick and have to discard it, or they gain weight back after the diets over.
I don't believe its common knowledge that the most taxing thing our internal organs do is digesting animal proteins.
You might be interested to learn that when dieting with a low protein program you become healthier and still able to lose as much weight.
The National Institute of Health in 2002 has set new guideline for the amount of protein needed in the daily diet anywhere from 10 to 35% as being healthy.
I agree with 10 to 25% but 35% is to much for the liver and the kidneys to handle everyday.
Think of this when dieting: one complete protein source per day is enough.
It was thought that a protein was needed at every meal, not so say scientists at Michigan State University.
Studies show that protein in the form of amino acids needed in cell construction and other body maintenance remains usefull quite a long time.
These accessible protein are available for use anywhere from 4 to 48 hours in the body.
So, don't worry about getting protein at every meal.
Rather, start thinking about what's taking place in your body when you consume to much protein.
Diseases become the norm after several years of over indulging in animal proteins.
The 3 most prevalent are: heart disease; diabetes and high blood pressure. Each affiliation can kill but it's possible to have all three with a high animal protein diet.
Ideally, 3 to 6 ounces of red meat protein should be eaten no more often than every 10 days to 2 weeks.
When dieting think low protein in the form of ground white turkey meat as a substitute for hamburger and plain turkey as a pinch-hitter for steak and beef roast.
Turkey is a wonderful source of:
1. Low-fat protein
2. Vitamin B2 AKA: Riboflavin
3. Vitamin B3 AKA: Niacin
4. Vitamin B6 AKA: Pyridoxine
5. Vitamin B12 AKA: Cobalamin
All of these B vitamins are good for energy production and healthy DNA.
Turkey is very rich in zinc and selenium.
These minerals are more bioavailable via turkey than by way of either plant or supplemental sources.
When dieting don't think so much about your total intake of protein.
Instead, think more about quality of protein, consuming more nuts, legumes and whole grains.
And go organic as often as you can get it.
I go to the manager at the supermarket where I shop and request organic foods.
Usually within 2 weeks to a month they will supply the product I ask for.
Remember low protein is healthier for your body and can aid your losing weight plans just by the lack of saturated fat in your diet.
