Super Six Ways To Increase Your Protein Intake

Getting a sufficient amount of protein is very important for your health. This is why the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) for protein is 50 grams a day (Click Here)  Having a high protein intake helps with weight loss, your overall health and increases muscle mass.

So today I would like to share with you the super six ways to increase your protein intake.

 

PROTIEN COME FIRST KARIMDAVID.COM

 

Make Sure Protein Comes First- when you are eating your meal. Protein gets you feeling satisfied and full, also high protein intakes decrease levels of hunger pains.

Eating protein first can help you with your blood sugar and insulin levels and keep them from rising too high after eating a meal.

 

 

 

 

Cheese KarimDavid.com

 

 

 

 

Have Cheese Snacks- This is a fantastic way to get the extra protein into your diet, as long as you choose the right cheeses.

If you actually look at the typical snacks consumed by the majority of people which included: Crisp (Chips), Crackers, and Biscuits, etc   they are all very low in protein.

I’ll give you an example: One 35 g bag of salt and vinegar Walkers Crisp (Chips) contains 184 calories and only has 2.3 grams of protein in it.  

In comparison to Cheddar cheese which contains 6.97 to 7 grams of protein, with 4 times the amount of calcium too.

DID YOU KNOW?: Cheese is of great benefit to heart health, as it does not raise cholesterol levels very high, not even with people who have very high cholesterol.

Have Eggs First Thing In The Morning- If you’re not going to take the time to learn how to read and understand food labels (Click Here) then you would be better off not purchasing cereal at all! As the ones that are typically chosen are the really sugary ones, which is just setting you back on your weight loss goals.

Eggs however are not only  Bey better for you anyway, they also provide so much more protein than the likes of cereals (including the healthy ones), toast and bagels.

Eating eggs for breakfast makes sure you are fuller for much longer, which means you end up eating fewer calories later on in the day.

This is a super food for sure and here are some more benefits of eating eggs (Click Here)

 

 

 

LEANER CUTS OF MEAT KARIMDAVID.COM

Choose Leaner Cuts Of Meat- This will add more protein to your meals, and of course lower calories.

DID YOU KNOW?: If you don’t eat meat you should read this (Click Here)

 

 

 

PROTEIN EGG Karimdavid.com

 

Add Protein To Your Salad– as you may know vegetables provide vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which protect us from many diseases.

The thing with salad though, it does not contain a lot of protein, which leaves you really hungry after an hour or so.

So adding protein to your salad should be top of your to do list. “Which protein foods though”? Some examples below…

Tuna: 25 g

Turkey Breast: 24 g

Cheese: 22 g

DID YOU KNOW?: Alternatively if you are looking for some good plant based ones… Chickpeas are a great choice 19 g of protein per 100 g, and also Almonds which contain 21 g per 100 g.

 

 

 

Eating Fish KarimDavid.com

 

Eat Fish- Lot’s of it too! This will boost your protein intake. I would recommend if you want to increase your fish intake ASAP to go for canned fish because for one, it requires no refrigeration, which also means you can travel with it. It’s more ideal to make as a snack or a meal, for everyone who cannot fillet a fish properly.

Though I do encourage you eat all the fatty fish like Sardines, Herring & Salmon. They are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight against inflammation and improves your heart health (Click Here) 

 

 

THAT’S IT!

I really enjoyed sharing with you the super six ways to increase your protein intake

Please do let me know though…

    Very informative, thank you. I always religiously follow the RDA guides on products; too little or too much over long periods will cause problems, but as long as over the long term you are near the guidance then you should be OK.

    The body is an intelligent and intuitive organism – it will soon tell you when something is not right. All that is needed is the informed mind to receive the signals.

    Reply
    1. 1didieci August 28, 2016 at 10:36 am

      I can feel your passion Gia! I’ve got some food for thought on two things…. One: remember do not be so rigid with the RDA guide lines… everything changes, the learning process of “what is” never ends. Two: That’s exactly the point the “informed mind” is lacking in our society, because as a majority we are not educated about food properly. We seem to focus much on the science behind what are body does when we eat anything, get thrilled over the fact our body can digest food… but not really expanding on the problems with eating GMO foods for example.

      Because what we do not really know we can brush off and ignore (so they think). So even if they know something is not quite right they ignore it, until it cannot be anymore or it goes away… It’s that fingers crossed mentality which is no way to live if you ask me.

      Your welcome Gia please spread the word about health as much as you can… thank you for supporting me I love you 🙂

    I’m struggling with shopping and getting the right products, as I’m not good at reading the labels. Three is the best super!
