“Do you feel hungry and tired all the time? Do short bursts of workout make you feel lethargic and exhausted? Then you might be suffering from protein deficiency. Protein is a macro nutrient composed of amino acids. It is the building block of life. Our body can produce several amino acids required for protein production, but there is a set of essential amino acids that can be obtained from animal and plant sources only. Protein helps to break down the amino acids that promote cell growth and repair. The excess protein consumed is converted into energy by the body. Several researches have also suggested that protein in the form of lean meat, beans, nuts and dairy food can promote weight loss and reduce the risk of heart diseases. It takes a long time to be digested by the body, keeping you full for a longer time.”
