Your body needs protein to keep it running strong. Here’s how to get enough of it.
Protein is an important component of any healthy diet. Your body needs protein to build and repair cells, to maintain and build lean muscle mass and to produce energy. Protein helps support your metabolism and immune system, helps keep bones and muscles strong and can even keep your appetite in check, making it easier to lose weight or maintain weight loss.
Sometimes it’s difficult to eat enough protein because of health issues or low appetite. Other times, your body may require more protein than usual, such as when you’re working out at more intense levels. No matter what the reason for needing to add more protein to your diet, this infographic provides 7 easy ways to do so.
