Did you know that protein can keep you full for a longer period with fewer calories (according to Harvard studies)?
Ellen Kok, our orthomolecular nutritionist, recommends that you start consuming additional plant protein and micronutrients to speed up your metabolism and reduce the desire to snack.
The truth is that...
39% of the worldwide population is overweight (that’s 1.9 billion adults!) according to WHO in 2014. Harvard concluded that excess weight diminishes almost every aspect of health, from reproductive function to memory and mood. Plus, it increases the risk of several debilitating, deadly diseases - including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
A cooper, MD and Luke, PhD of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine study proved that when trying to lose weight, what you eat is more important than how much you exercise, because an increase in your activity leads to an increase your appetite.
As we mentioned above, adding protein powder to your breakfast will keep you full for a longer period, help you snack less and consume on average 400 calories less during the day. Plus, protein helps people lose more fat instead of muscle tissue.
Plant protein is preferred over whey protein as it is easier to digest, is not toxic and contains micronutrients that aid protein absorption.
According to various studies, important micronutrients to increase the metabolism and aid in burning fat include Omega 3, Iron, Zinc, Selenium, A, B, C & D.
