Presentation Review: The Power of Protein
Joanne Teifer and her protein expert team from Revive Wellness Club shared an intriguing presentation on “The Power of Protein” this past Tuesday. Protein is a macro-nutrient that builds and repairs tissues in the body, which is why it’s key to having a healthy diet; having less than 50% protein stores and the body cannot survive. By eating the correct amount of protein one can feel less fatigued, have more energy, have a higher resting metabolism, and manage hunger cravings. There are many different forms of protein; animal protein to plant protein. Animal protein; eggs, meat, and dairy, are the sources of protein that provide the body with the 8 essential amino acids it needs. Plant protein; pea, rice, nuts, and beans, need to be mixed together for the body to receive all the 8 essential amino acids it needs. The amount of protein an individual requires varies from person to person; but as a general guideline, a physically active 200lb male needs about 100-200g while a physically active 100lb female would need between 50-100g. Having the proper amount of protein in your diet could change your life! Contact Revive for more information on the protein in your diet that’s just right for you!
