New Year, New Me: Why ‘Protein’ Is A Health Resolution To Keep

Most of us have indulged in holiday treats and sure does feel like we ate a year’s worth of food in the last two weeks of it. But aren’t we just done with overindulging! A clean slate of a New Year is upon us and that means some form of diet or healthy eating is on the list for 2020 resolutions. In other days, on the New Year’s Day, we’re all are staring at common resolutions – from weight loss to following a healthier diet to eating clean and starting with an exercise routine, and so on.

But almost eight of ten Indians fail to stick to their new year’s resolution of staying fit, soon after the first week of the new year[1]. This is either because resolutions chosen are highly restrictive or unsustainable. To break this cycle, it’s important to make realistic resolutions that not just improve your health but also can be followed easily in our daily lives.

This 2020, let’s make a worthy resolution of always being aware of the importance of protein in our diets and prioritize this macronutrient by filling a quarter of our plate with proteins at every meal, each day of the new year! Whether vegan, vegetarian or non-vegetarian, here’s why protein should be your food resolution for 2020:

  • Helps reduce food cravings and control appetite: When it comes to feeling full, various experts and studies have consistently expressed that eating protein-rich foods during our meals, keeps one feeling full for a longer time and decreases hunger. Consuming protein rich foods such as eggs, lentils, quinoa, chicken, paneer etc. is the simplest way to stay satisfied longer and be less prone to snacking, at all times.
  • Helps build muscle: While, protein is often associated as a food for bodybuilders, gym enthusiast, and athletes, it is a nutrient that each one of us needs in substantiate quantities to maintain muscle mass and promote muscle growth. Moreover, unlike fats and carbohydrates, our body does not store protein, so we need to consume it regularly on everyday basis.
  • Helps with weight loss: Protein-rich foods help reduce cravings and keeps one feeling full for longer hours, thereby reducing the appetite. And this is the main reason how protein helps you lose weight as it makes you eat fewer calories automatically.
  • Helps repair bones and build tissues: Proteins play a primary role in building and repairing cells, including the muscle mass that gets damaged when exercising, or performing heavy activities. Additionally, protein plays an integral role in transporting cells, serving as enzymes to support various functions performed by our body.

In 2020, you cannot go back to health or weight-loss resolutions that remind you why food restriction doesn’t work, long term. Instead think about a food-resolution revolution: 2020 will not be about eating less but eating right, especially, the required amount of protein, every day in every meal!
