Why protein is great for shredding fat

Having protein incorporated into your meal plans is pivotal for shredding fat!

Protein is an essential macronutrient that we basically cannot live without, and can be incorporated into many meals.

This is how you can use protein for shredding fat and losing weight.

Protein and fat shredding

When thinking about weight loss we pretty much know by now that we should be eating protein with every meal. Protein helps to keep us full as it stays in the stomach longer compared with carbohydrates.

Quality protein also helps you sustain muscle during weight loss, improve muscle fitness, immunity, and antioxidant function, build HDL (good) cholesterol and enhance insulin and leptin function – all of which contribute toward optimal weight management efforts over time.

3 main benefits of protein for weight loss

  1. Eating adequate protein coming from food fuels fat burning, while preserving lean muscle – i.e you won’t be “skinny fat” when you lose weight – you will look lean and toned.
  2. Protein keeps you fuller for longer – and that means there will be less chance of snacking on sugary foods that go straight to your thighs.
  3. Your body uses the amino acids in protein to build lean muscle, which makes you stronger and also burns calories even when you are not active.

Protein Powder

The Healthy Mummy Protein Powder is a simple and effective protein powder, great to consume post-workout or as a snack (on its own or to be used when cooking/baking) to assist with tissue repair, muscle growth and muscle maintenance.

What’s more, our chocolate protein powder is FREE from saturated fatty acids and is low in sodium (which is great – as a diet low in sodium is good for reducing blood pressure).
