Home Made Protein Snacks Are All That You Need!

Healthy Protein Snacks!

I need those muscles on my body; I want to look a bit pumped up!” said one of my clients during his first session.

And another client who was more focused on losing weight said, “I seriously want to lose weight, and I even strive hard for that. I follow diet and workout but still, I don’t lose weight.”

“Whenever I have any pain in the body, it goes on for days, which forces me to pop a painkiller. I don’t know why this happens! “

To all the questions above, I am just adding on to another question.

“Do you all get enough proteins in your diet? “

Also, do check out how much of proteins do you truly need in your diet?

What Is A Protein?

Protein is a macronutrient that plays a significant role in the growth and maintenance of the body. It does give energy to the body, but only when there are no carbohydrates in the body. Otherwise, it mainly focuses on the bodybuilding part.

The questions mentioned above are the most common ones I get from my patients daily, and I am like, “Are you taking the protein that your body needs? “And they simply tell, “Yes, I do take protein shakes or a bowl of dal or maybe one egg.”

Another question that arises here is: Do you think that is sufficient? Being an expert, I firmly say that it’s not enough! It’s not even half of what you need.

So what is the requirement of protein?

According to the DRI (Dietary reference intake) guidelines, It is 0.8-1.0 g per kg body weight. And for a sedentary man, it is 60g. For a passive woman, it is 55g (if the women are not pregnant or lactating).
