New Year's Resolution? Fit Protein Into That!

Looking up several diet plans on the internet, you may see some diets load up on protein while some may actively reduce it – confusing a whole lot of people on what is to follow while managing weight. A recent study conducted by several nutritionists at Purdue University shows that consuming protein on a regular basis can only benefit a few. In particular, those who are vigorously losing weight by lessening their day to day calorie intake and those who are into intense muscle building. Meaning, if you aren’t purposefully trying to change your body and muscle structure, it is best that you keep with the recommended dietary allowance every day of 0.8 grams of protein with every kilogram of your body.

So, if you are planning to lose weight starting the New Year, they recommend that you don’t cut back across all types of food you usually consume. Such a practice will only lead to inadvertent loss to protein intake. What you actually must do is to work to maintain, increase your protein intake moderately, and then cut back on foods that are rich in carbohydrates and fat. That is if you aren’t planning to go and hit the gym regularly. However, these conclusions are to be treated in general. Learn more about this here.
