Protein — How Much Should I be Consuming?

Consuming the correct ratio of protein, carbs and fat is essential to maintaining a healthy body. Given the prevalence of high carb food choices (especially in the fast food sector) individuals can often eat several meals, consuming high carbohydrate snacks that spike their blood sugar levels and begin an "up and down" energy cycle.

One way to increase overall energy and stabilize blood sugar levels is to add a protein source to every meal and snack (protein helps slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream). Individuals who pursue an active lifestyle will require more protein for recovery and repair when compared to those with a more sedentary life

In addition, consuming additional protein will provide the body with key amino acids that form a pool allowing the body from the supply when needed. Unlike carbohydrates which can be stored for future use, amino acids are flushed from the body and need to be supplied consistently during "refuelling" or meal time. Amino acids such as L-Glutamine, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine are crucial to immune health and muscular recovery and found in the highest concentration in whey proteins.

 

Acid Versus Alkaline — The Link to Osteoporosis

Foods that are "acidic" are not necessarily unhealthy. Consuming a higher ratio of alkaline to acidic foods will promote a healthier pH balance in your body.
