The Power of Protein
March is National Nutrition Month, and we’re so excited to spend this month focusing on the essential nutrients you need to thrive. Nutrition is an essential part of transforming your life, so today we’re going to focus on one of the most important components of any healthy diet: protein!
The Importance of Protein
There are two basic types of nutrients: macronutrients and micronutrients. Protein is a macronutrient, which means your body needs large quantities of it to function at its best. And because your body doesn’t store protein, you have to continually make it a priority in your diet.
Protein plays a lot of roles in your body. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues and make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. It’s also the building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Protein is also a valuable tool in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight. First, it helps satisfy your appetite. It also helps build and maintain lean muscle mass, which promotes a healthy metabolism. And if you’re working on your fitness, consuming protein after your workouts can help you maximize your results. No matter what your health goals are, protein is an important part of reaching them!
A lot of people come up short on protein in their diets, but fortunately, it isn’t hard to make it a priority! It’s a key part of transforming your life with the Better Body System, so it’s built right into the meal plan for the Transformation Kit. You’ll eat protein at every meal while you’re on the system. To help you embrace variety so you don’t get bored of what you’re eating, your 28-Day Transformation brochure offers many different protein options. You never know what may become your new favorite, so try new things from time to time.
In addition to what you’ll eat throughout the day, our protein shake, YES, is a great way to add some extra protein to your diet. It provides twelve grams of high-quality whey protein along with a nutrient-dense blend of fruits and vegetables. It’s also delicious, so you’ll look forward to drinking it!
