So, for some of my clients, I advise to eat a higher amount of protein per day, why you ask? This is why
Proteins are often called the body’s building blocks. They are used to build and repair tissues. They help fight infection. Your body uses extra protein for energy. The protein food group include Seafood, lean meat and poultry eggs, beans and peas, soy products and unsalted nuts and seeds.
Protein is also found in the dairy group.
Protein from plant sources tends to be lower in saturated fat, contains no cholesterol, and provides fibre and other health-promoting nutrients.
So with all of this in mind, it is normally urged that you have a higher proportion of protein in your daily diet, this will aid you in the recovery process after training.
