  • Protein to Start Your Day

    Most people have enough protein in their diet to prevent deficiency, but most of us would benefit from a much higher protein intake.

    Numerous studies show a high-protein diet has significant benefits for weight loss and metabolic health. 

    Studies show that protein helps you feel more full — with less food.

    A high-protein diet reduces hunger, helping you eat fewer calories by improving the function of your weight-regulating hormones.

    Eating more protein may reduce cravings and desire for snacking. Merely having a high-protein smoothie like NutraVegan or Nutralean may have a powerful effect.

    Reduce Cravings and Late-Night Snacking

    A food craving is different from feeling hungry. It is not just about your body needing nutrients - it's your brain seeking a reward!

    Yet, cravings can be incredibly hard to control. Research shows the best way to curb your cravings is to prevent them in the first place.  

    One of the best ways is simply to increase your protein intake.

    One study in overweight men showed that increasing protein to 25% of calories reduced cravings by 60% and the desire to snack at night by half. Another study found that eating a high-protein breakfast reduced cravings and late-night snacking.

    Better Together

    Did you know your body can only metabolize 20-30g of protein at time?  The rest gets excreted in your urine or becomes excess calories.

    Prebiotic fiber extends the digestion time of protein, making more protein available for your body to use for muscle repair, immune function and yes - even reducing cravings and hunger!

    How Much Protein Do You Need?

    The recommended protein intake for adults is 0.6 to 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day.

    Many nutrition experts now recommend older people increase their protein intake compared to younger adults.

    Women in particular, should increase their protein intake to a minimum of 1.0-1.2g of protein per kilogram of body weight per day.

    Hunger is the body's way of letting us know it's time to refuel! In an ideal world, hunger strikes only every few hours and we are satisfied in between. If you can't relate to that, don't worry - you're not alone. From time to time, it can feel as if we are always constantly hungry, even shortly after eating. In this blog we're shining light on the top 8 reasons you always feel hungry, and how to combat them.
