Learn how protein helps you stay to light
and healthy

INTRODUCTION
We all know that a protein rich food diet helps
in weight loss and therefore always try to
include more proteins in your meals. But, do you
know what is the importance of protein in
diet? Did you ever know that your muscle
percentage can actually determine the amount of
protein your body requires for weight loss? A
Truweight Nutritionist can help you in this
regard. Here is a Free Nutrition Counselling with
an expert Truweight Nutritionist that you can
avail. Proteins are the building blocks of our
body that makes about 15 of the body mass. Our
muscles, cartilage, ligaments, skin, and even our
hair is made up of protein! So it is of great
importance to have an adequate intake of protein
in our diet.

WHAT IS PROTEIN AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Proteins are organic compounds that are also
known as polyamides. Poly means many and amides
mean amino acids. In total, there are about 20
amino acids that undergo various combinations to
make different proteins. Out of these 20, there
are 9 essential amino acids that we require in
our diet.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF PROTEIN?
Each of our body cells is made of protein. It
plays a vital role in our skin, mus- cles,
organs and glands. Protein is also found in most
of our body fluids except in bile and urine.
Proteins, the building blocks of our body, can
even repair the damaged body cells and even make
new ones. For proper growth and development, we
need protein rich foods during childhood,
adolescence and even during pregnancy. Moreover,
protein is also required for our immune system
to synthesize neurotransmitters that help in
creation and signalling of hormones.

EXTRA TIP (INVERTED COMMAS)
What is the main use of protein in the
body? Proteins are required for many functions
of the body, starting right from the en- zymes,
neurotransmitters, hormones, muscles, cell
membranes to general wear and tear etc

SO WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTEIN RICH FOOD
IN WEIGHT LOSS?
Proteins are generally heavy and that is why they
require more time for diges- tion. Thus
including proteins in your diet will make you
feel fuller for a longer period of time. And
that will keep you from munching unhealthy foods
often. Moreover, proteins help in making our
body muscles, which are the most meta- bolically
active tissue in our bodies. A study found that
dieters who increased the consumption of protein
by 30 ate lesser energy and lost close to 6
kilos over a period of 12 weeks! So now you know
why a protein diet is preferred for weight loss.

WHAT SHOULD BE THE DAILY INTAKE OF PROTEIN FOR
WEIGHT LOSS?
  • As per ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research)
    recommendations, daily protein requirements
    should be
  • Adults need 0.8-1 gm/kg body weight/day Children
    need 1.5 gm/kg body weight/day
  • Pregnant Lactating women need 1.75 gm/kg body
    weight/day Professional athletes require close
    to 2 gm/kg body weight/day
