can help us lose weight or build muscle but how? during the last episode we’ve learned

also plays a big role in our health protein protein is a macronutrient
that is responsible for lots of functions in the body including
repairing muscles and tissues which means every time you damage the tissue
protein is responsible for fixing it cool right oh here’s a fun fact: did you
know that approximately 15% of our body weight is made of protein we can find
protein in almost all foods animal products such as eggs and dairy meat
fish and poultry are very rich in protein but also plant-based foods such
as nuts seeds and vegetables one gram of protein contains four calories just so
you understand 100 grams of eggs steak almonds and edamame beans contains
different amounts of protein but they’re all good sources the general
recommendation for protein intake is 10 to 20 percent of the total energy intake

feeling after meals that are low in protein or contain the same amount of
calories besides that a high-protein diet can
help you keep or build muscle mass and a combination of carbs protein and weight
