Protein Supplements

Protein - The Secret to Success

Feeling great during weight loss is simple if your body is properly nourished with the right amount of protein. While all nutrients are important, protein is unique. The various cells in the body need replacement protein regularly as old cells die off. If protein is not made available, the muscle tissue of body cells and organs start to break down.

People on reduced calorie weight reduction programs need extra protein as insurance against tissue breakdown. If you don't receive an optimal ratio of protein, carbohydrates and fat, your body will break down protein from muscle tissue, which can seriously affect your overall health and well being. Added dietary protein prevents this problem.

Protein is also important during weight reduction to keep your metabolic (calorie burning) rate high which will improve weight loss results. The added protein helps preserve lean muscle. Muscle is a metabolically active tissue. A pound of muscle burns about 45 calories per day, while a pound of fat burns fewer than 2 calories. Recent research concludes that increasing the level of protein in a calorie restricted plan offsets the fall in the metabolic rate that normally accompanies reduced calorie plans.

The high quality protein supplements used on the Meta-Health Weight Reduction Plan help to reduce appetite and steady blood sugar levels, which trigger cravings. As a result, you will feel less tired, burn more fat and lose weight quicker and more firmly.
