Hello, Dyan here (The Health Coach Is In) to talk about the important role protein plays in helping us de-stress, balance our moods and balance out our bodies.
Just about every cell, enzyme, hormone, bone, muscle, skin, hair, nail, cartilage, tissue, immunity, organ and blood in our body needs the building blocks of protein.
WE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT!
SO WHAT KIND OF ROLE DOES PROTEIN PLAY IN STABILIZING OUR MOODS?
SIMPLY PUT: Protein breaks down the sugars in the foods and drinks we consume, so the sugars enter our bloodstream at a slow and more consistent pace, creating a lot less stress and ill effects on our body and moods.
In other words, if you're indulging in a sugary food, like a delicious slice of mom's apple pie, balance it with a small protein, like Greek yogurt, cheese or some naturally cured ham slices. These two partnered together can make the difference between a blood sugar spike and a nice, calm steady rise.
HOW MUCH PROTEIN SHOULD YOU HAVE?
Well let's see; the best way to figure out the right portions of meat, poultry or fish is to measure the protein in the palm of your pretty little hand, but the total amount of protein to have on a daily basis for the average man is no less than 56 grams and for the average women no less than 46 grams.
FOUR SIGNS YOU'RE NOT GETTING ENOUGH PROTEIN:
1)You're losing muscle and strength.
2)You're drained during the day.
3)You're craving high protein foods, like a steak, hamburger, peanut butter or a big turkey sandwich.
4)You're taking forever to heal from an injury.
So whether it's lean meats, seafood, nuts, fish or plant, grain and dairy proteins, add them to your wonderful meals and snacks and start stabilizing your moods and calming your mind, today.
