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!

The Power Of Adequate Protein For Better Health & Fitness

Expert Opinion
December 31, 2019

The Power Of Adequate Protein For Better Health & Fitness

In today’s fast-paced life with multiple responsibilities and sedentary lifestyle, 70% of the population rely on ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook foods. Due to this, health and nutrition often take a back-seat as these packed foods are loaded with either fat or sugar and deficit in protein. Not only this, the majority of the Indian population are vegetarians and vegetarians are known to have higher protein deficiency as compared to non-vegetarians. Protein is a highly misunderstood macronutrient and most of the people are unaware of their adequate protein requirements.

Protein is an essential nutrient for the human body which provides a powerhouse of health benefits. It plays an important role as a building block to our bones, blood, skin, cartilage, and muscle. Whether you want to lose weight, gain strength and muscle, or want a healthy hair and skin, protein is highly required. A high-protein diet also lowers blood pressurefights diabetes and more. But what happens if you do not get the right amount of proteins in your diet? Let’s check out-

Protein Deficiency

When you’re not eating enough protein to maintain normal body function or when your intake is unable to meet your body’s requirements, your body gets protein deficient. Protein deficiency is a common threat to the Indian population. According to the recently done survey, 9 out of 10 people in India consume an inadequate amount of proteins. Most of the population is unaware of how much protein is required every day.

Protein deficiency impairs the whole body. Low protein intake can cause subtle changes in your body over time, such as muscle wasting. Loss of muscle mass is one of the first signs of inadequate protein intake. The most severe form of protein deficiency is called kwashiorkor which often occurs in children in developing countries where famine and imbalanced diets are common. Protein deficiency commonly leaves its impact on the skin, hair and nails, which are largely made of protein. It causes hair thinning, hair loss, brittle nails and flaky skin.

Apart from these, risk of bone fracture, the severity of infections, slow metabolism, mood swings, increased appetite, low energy levels and fatigue are some of the other consequences of protein deficiency.

 visible symptoms of protein deficiency

So, how much of these building blocks does a person require?

Adequate Protein Intake

Not everyone has the same protein requirement. It depends on many factors, including body weight, muscle mass, physical activity, age and current state of health. Protein requirements are generally higher in athletes, older adults and people recovering from injuries.

As per the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) given by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for Indians, 0.8 to 1 gm protein per kg body weight per day is required to meet the basic nutritional requirements. It is not the specific amount you are supposed to eat every day but just a minimum amount you need to keep from getting sick.

To determine your daily protein intake, you can use an online Protein-O-Meter

Protein-O-Meter! With the vision to champion the cause of protein sufficiency and help India be more protein aware, ‘Right To Protein,’ nation-wide public health initiative has designed this. This brand aims to educate the Indian audience about the importance of protein in their daily health, fitness & wellbeing. This protein calculator is designed based on the unique Indian dietary habits which will help Indians, across different age-groups, track their daily protein intake and will also help them make necessary improvements by providing relevant information.

Protein-O-Meter will take your body composition and activity level into account to estimate your protein needs. Start with the number given by the calculator, see how that makes you feel, and try adjusting your protein level up or down to see what amount makes you feel good and perform well!

Top protein-rich sources

Let’s make India a healthy nation. Fill the much-needed protein lack in your diet by including loads of protein-rich foods in your diet. The richest sources of protein include fish, meat, eggs, almonds, chicken breast, oats, cottage cheese, greek yoghurt, milk, broccoli, lean beef, tuna, quinoa, whey protein supplements, lentils, seeds, brussels sprouts, peanuts etc.

White Rice Or Quinoa: Nutritionally Which One Leads The Board?

White Rice or Quinoa: Nutritionally Which one leads the board?

Diets And Recipes

White Rice or Quinoa: Nutritionally Which one leads the board?

White rice has been one of the most commonly consumed grains over the years while, quinoa has emerged as a healthy alternative and gained attention only in the recent years.

Rice is basically a cereal grain. White rice has the husk, bran, and germ removed, which lowers its nutritional value. Quinoa, on the other hand, is the seed of the goosefoot plant and is high in nutrition. Having said that, quinoa is often referred to as a grain because of its similar nutritional and culinary properties as rice and other grains. In fact, it is a seed not only healthier than rice but also is native to South America which was first grown 5,000 years ago and belongs to same family as spinach and beets.

No wonder why quinoa has become one of the most consumed and sought-after health foods in the world, thanks to its high levels of minerals and fiber, and the fact that it is a complete protein, meaning it contains all the nine essential amino acids required to keep one healthy and nourished.

Though it’s undeniable that white rice has long made a delicious and affordable carbohydrate base for a wide variety of world cuisines, it doesn’t exactly have a stellar nutritional resume. In comparison, quinoa is rich in both fiber and protein, and contains much higher amounts of nutrients while allowing for a similar texture.

Both Rice and quinoa are used in similar ways, have their own nutritional benefits, and can often be used interchangeably in recipes. But when it comes to the healthiest option to turn to, it’s quinoa that takes the cake. Here are the 5 reasons why quinoa is more nutritious than, rice.

 

Quinoa is a complete protein

For such a tiny seed, quinoa has a lot of protein. One cup of cooked has almost 8 grams of protein content. It is one of the very few vegetarian sources of protein that is complete protein. This means it contains all the nine essential amino acids your body needs.

White rice, on the other hand, is an incomplete protein, a comfort food and a single cup of rice contains 2 times lesser amount of protein thank quinoa. And while rice has a place in the healthy diet, it’s definitely high in carbs.

Including protein in your daily diet has proved to have multiple benefits such as building bones, gain muscles, repairing tissue, and reduced food cravings.

Quinoa can keep you fuller for longer –

Quinoa is rich in fiber, one cup of it contains 5 grams of fiber which is significantly higher than rice. Fiber is an important nutrient because it reduces the risk of developing heart diseases and keeps you fuller for longer. It also helps you keeping your digestive system healthy and manages your weight, controls blood circulation, and sugar level.

While, rice has only 0.6 grams of fiber as the husk and bran is removed, it has very low level of which lowers the nutritional value in comparison to quinoa.

Quinoa is rich in magnesium –

Magnesium is important for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heartbeat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps adjust blood glucose levels. It aids in the production of energy and protein.

A cup of quinoa has 118 milligrams (mg) of magnesium, making it one of the best food sources of the mineral. In comparison, white rice has 19 mg which is why, it is suggested to include quinoa in you daily diet over white rice.

Quinoa contains healthy carbs –

Even though, quinoa and rice have similar amounts of carbohydrates – 39 g and 44 g per cup, respectively. The quality of carbs differs. There are two types of carbs available; ‘good’ or ‘bad’, that is related to where each food falls on the glycemic index, which in turn helps you understand the food effects on the blood glucose level.

Therefore, a food which is at the upper end of the GI, such as white rice, raises blood glucose levels higher than a food on the lower end of the GI. Low-GI foods are generally ones that contain protein and fiber, such as quinoa.

Quinoa and Rice both can enhance the nutrient profile of Gluten-Free diets –

Quinoa and rice both are naturally gluten free. But quinoa has an upper hand here, as it is a great source of nutrition for those with celiac diseases or gluten intolerance. Rice, on the other hand, is a bit less nutritionally rich than quinoa.

However, the nutrition content is similar only if cross-contamination doesn’t happen during processing. Also, if you’re trying to cut flour out of your diet, both are great choices to help you stay on track.

While white rice is devoid of nutritional value and will always take the back seat in the health department, both quinoa and brown rice are super nutritious options that are good sources of minerals and fiber, are naturally gluten-free, and aid in essential bodily functions like digestion and blood sugar

All in all, Quinoa tops the list of healthy food alternatives, as it is not a grain, contains no wheat, is high in protein, comparatively low on carb, and comes in handy. It also has a host of other vitamins and minerals to keep you feeling full and light throughout the day.
