Thank goodness for protein
We need protein in our diet to stay strong and healthy. If we don't eat enough our bodies will steal it from our muscles and organs. In fact, protein is essential for the development of our muscles, which lead to an increase in the burning of calories. Our muscles could be described as fat furnaces as they keep our metabolism running high.
Too many fast releasing carbohydrates lead to weight gain
Traditionally we were taught that carbohydrates should provide our body with its primary supply of energy. However, many people have confused fast releasing carbohydrates (pasta, cakes) and slow releasing carbohydrates (whole grains, vegetables) eating too many of the former-the tempting, convenient, tasty variety! Most of us lead sedentary lives, so any excess energy from carbohydrate-rich food) is stored as fat
Optimize your protein intake in your diet and lose weight!
- 1. Eat regular meals spaced throughout the day
- 2. Choose slow releasing carbohydrates foods
- 3. Increase your intake of live foods (fresh fruit and vegetables)
- 4. Identify your body's protein needs and consume
- the amount you need

And for those concerned about Cholesterol levels? The inclusion of at least 25g Soya protein per day as part a diet low in saturated fats can help reduce blood cholesterol. Two
Formula 1 shakes provide 36 g of soya protein (taken with non-fat/soy milk) plus additional snacks.
Protein comes in the form of meat, soy products, cheese and dairy products. However, most of these are in the form of animal proteins, which add greatly to the bad cholesterol in our bodies. Therefore we
need to look for high quality proteins, in our diet, from non-animal sources.
