Protein Rich Foods

so that makes it necessary for you to get them by eating protein rich foods

Protein is a macro nutrient necessary for the proper growth and function of the human body. Proteins builds, maintains and replaces tissues in your body. When you eat , the digestive juices in your stomach go to work. They break down the protein in the food into basic units known as amino acids. The amino acids then can be reused to make the proteins your body needs to maintain muscles, bones, blood and body organs. Proteins are at times described as long necklaces with differently shaped beads. Each bead is a small amino acid. These amino acids can join together to make thousands of proteins, but only 22 of them are very important to human health. Of those 22 amino acids, your body can only make 13 and can’t make the remaining 9, so that makes it necessary for you to get them by eating protein rich foods. They are called essential amino acids because it’s essential that you get them from food.

Most natural foods are comprised largely of water, the reduction of the water content has the greatest effect of increasing proteins. There is a considerable debate over the amount of protein a person needs to consume per day. The recommended daily intake (RDI) of protein is 46 grams for women aged 19-70 and 56 grams for men aged 19-70. Any excess protein consumed is turned into energy by the body. A deficiency in protein leads to muscle atrophy and impaired functioning of the human body in general. There are a large number of protein rich foods that are available in the markets with the highest protein to calorie ratio and they include:

1. Turkey and Chicken breast. They are a good source of protein chicken or turkey breast(58g) provides around 17g of proteins.

2. Fish (Tuna, Halibut, Salmon). They are also good natural source of protein, 85g of fish produces 26g of proteins.

3. Cheese (Non-fat Mozzarella). They are good source of protein producing 32g of proteins from from 9g 1oz slice of 28g cheese.

4.Beans(kidney beans, white beans, lima beans, fava beans, black beans, mung beans). They are rich source of protein and produces 17g of protein per 1 cup of beans.

5. Nuts and Seeds (pumpkin, squash and water melon seeds, peanuts, almonds). They are nutritious and high in proteins. They range at around 5-7g of nuts or seeds produces 28g of proteins.

There are many other protein rich foods apart from the above mentioned, they include; yogurt, milk, soy milk, tofu, lean beef, veal and pork loin just to mention a few. Your body uses the proteins you eat to make lots of specialized protein molecules that have specific jobs. Other proteins you get from protein rich foods are used to build cardiac muscles. Whether you’re running or just hanging out, protein does the important job like moving your legs, lungs and protecting you from diseases.

In conclusion you don’t have to eat all the essential amino acids in one meal, as long as you are taking good and balanced protein rich food throughout the day, your body will grab what it needs from every meal.

I run for my aerobic exercise. You can run, walk, dance; whatever you prefer. Just be certain to do aerobics at least 3 – 4 times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes each workout. If you are using HIIT or something on that order, obviously you will be spending less time getting in your aerobics.
