I meet most people whose focus is on weight loss rather than fat loss. Weight loss is actually the wrong focus, what you need is fat loss and muscle gain. The reason most people fail in the journey of weight loss is because they find short cuts and they might end up losing weight temporarily, but along with many of its side effects. Be it excessive hair fall, hormonal imbalance, poor period health, poor sleep, increased stress or skin issues.
The right way to lose weight is to lose fat and build muscle mass in the body. There is only one powerful way through which you can achieve this when it comes to diet. Adding more protein. And if you weight train and exercise well, it’ll be “sone pe suhaga.“
Yes, I see most of my clients and participants making one huge mistake, cutting down on roti and rice. But on the other hand, they aren’t having enough protein. Because of that, they feel hungry and have frequent cravings. All you need to do is add more protein in every meal.
How much protein do you need in a day?
An average person needs around 0.8 g to 1 g protein per kg of body weight. So, if you are 80 kg, you need around 80 g of protein in a day. That’s difficult to get from food, especially if you are a vegetarian.
How can you fulfil daily protein requirement?
As I mentioned, it is difficult to get required protein from food, you need to take protein supplements to make sure you can reap above mentioned benefits, especially if you are a vegetarian. I have been personally taking it from the last 6 years and have got amazing results in my body including incredible strength, stamina and energy.
That’s the reason I launched this unique protein powder where it has all the natural ingredients, no maltodextrin, no sucralose, no GMO or no artificial flavours. I wanted to give as natural and nutritious product as I could and I am happy to have succeeded in that.
Here are some food sources of protein:
- Dal like Masoor dal, Toor dal, Urad dal, Chana dal
- Kala chana, Chhole, Lobiya, Vaal, Kulith, Matki, Rajma, Soybean
- Mutter (Green peas)
- Nuts like almonds and walnuts
- Seeds like pumpkin and chia seeds
- Peanut butter
- Protein shake
- Fish, eggs and chicken (for non-vegetarian)
