The Power of Protein

PROTEIN: Builds ... Repairs ... Maintains

Whether your goal is to improve your mental & physical health & vitality, build muscle, burn fat or just get into better shape, it is important you eat enough protein everyday at each meal.

PROTEIN is essential for life. It is the second most plentiful substance in your body (after water) and makes up around 20% of your total weight.

So it's extremely important to get enough quality protein, especially if you are eating whey protein powders, BEWARE! Not all whey proteins are the same. Make sure you get the highest quality protein you can. After all it's feeding your body and becoming an integrated part of you on a cellular level.

PROTEIN makes everything on and in your body i.e. skin, fingernails, hair, brain, internal organs, teeth, muscle, antibodies, hormones,botanical slimming msv, enzymes, DNA, fat burning enzymes & vitamins etc.

PROTEIN repairs & protects our DNA from damage, maintains the integrity and strength of our intestinal wall and keeps our immune system strong.

PROTEIN repairs every cell and tissue of our body and sustains our lean muscle mass.

Our requirement for PROTEIN increases as we age, and in times of mental or physical stress, illness or pregnancy.

PROTEIN is important for weight loss because it is the building block for muscles. The more muscle you have the faster your metabolism i.e. the faster you burn through food and fat. The way to gain more muscle is to do resistance training, eat enough protein throughout the day at each meal, and get enough sleep and rest.

Remember too much protein at the wrong time of the day will turn to fat.


Lean, non fat or low fat Chicken or Turkey breast, Fish, Shellfish, Eggs, Red meats, Dairy or whey-based protein powders (only if tolerated...Dairy foods are very common allergy foods)


Single vegetable proteins are not complete proteins. To obtain complete protein, combinations of vegetable protein sources must be eaten in the same meal. Calculate carefully. Complete proteins are essential for optimum health. E.g. combine 1, 2, 3 or 4 in at least 2 combinations in the same meal. E.g. 1. Lentils & 2. Brown Rice or 1. Rye & 2. Hummus made from Chickpeas or 3. Nuts & 4. Seeds or 2. Millet & 3. Walnuts etc

Legume...Kidney, Chickpea, Lentil, Soy Milk or Soy Powders, Soy Bean, Tofu, B/Beans, etc Grains...Millet, Rice, Rye, Oats, Barley (Wheat only if tolerated... very common allergy food) Nuts...

Protein Calculation

It is very important that you spread your protein requirement evenly throughout the day. (especially eat protein at breakfast) This will assist in the stabilizing of your metabolism (weight control), energy levels, sugar levels, mood swings and cravings.

Your daily protein requirement needs to be calculated on your (IBW) IDEAL BODY WEIGHT for your height, age, gender and activity level. NB: please check a height weight chart for your approximate Ideal Body Weight or consult a Weight Management Specialist or your Health Consultant, or Personal Trainer for your daily protein needs.
