A lot more people avoid some useful food because they thought it make them gain weight. Some food like meat, eggs, and milk are mistaken to be a factor of gaining weight. So those who are on diet nowdays are likely to avoid those kind of food. Actually, people are getting mistake as those food do provide benefits and also help on losing weight. Why does it help you to loose weight? It helps because these foods are full of protein.
There are studies and experiments results come out to confirm that the high protein consumers are likely to loose weight more than those who consume less protein or do not eat at all as protein help boosting metabolism. Metabolism is the process (or rate) by which your body converts calories from food into energy. That means protein helps body to be able to convert calories from food in to energy more conveniently.
Protein also helps balance the nitrogen in the body that increases the muscle mass. It also slow down the glucose absorption in bloodstream that help us hardly get hungry. Beside, it helps decrease the insulin level which allow the metabolism to work easier.
Where is the protein resource?
Actually the body itself can produce the amino acid for 80% and other 20% is from the food we eat. Amino acids are the basic structural building units of protein. The amino acid resource can be found from the high protein food like:
Casein or a protein from milk is the muscle's favorite. It helps to strengthen muscles, increase the synthesis process, and restrain protein decay. According to the related study, if we take in the food containing casein, it will agglutinate in a jelly form in the stomach that slow down the food movement. So the amino acid will be release in to bloodstream more. In addition, casein helps strengthen the muscle, boost HDL level, and relaxes muscle tension and the joint.
Soy bean contains protein for 34% which is two times higher than that in pork. Although the soybean does not have any role on losing weight, it is really good for health. In the soy bean seed, especially its peel, contains lecithin which is a very good substance for health. Normally, lecithin is produced daily by the liver if the diet is adequate. It is needed by every cell in the body and is a key building block of cell membranes; without it, they would harden. Lecithin protects cells from oxidation and largely combines the protective sheaths surrounding the brain. It is composed mostly of B vitamins, phosphoric acid, choline, linoleic acid and inositol. Although it is a fatty substance, it is also a fat emulsifier. Here, it supports the circulatory system.
Eggs are a good and cheap protein resource. Many people may be scared of eating eggs because of the cholesterol in the yolk. In fact, the saturated fat in food is a factor that increases cholesterol in bloodstream, not the yolk. Beside, eggs helps prevent the heart decease and loose weight. An egg does not only provide only 75 calories, but it makes you full for a longer time than other kinds of food which provide the same quantity of calories.
