Protein: Does it really help in weight loss? | Myth on weight loss by Dietician Ashu Gupta

Protein – is it really helping in weight loss? Let’s find out some myths on weight loss by dietician Ashu Gupta. Hey everyone, hope you all doing great. So today's topic you have already seen. Our body needs all nutrients in our daily meals. But we can’t fulfil all nutrients, especially protein. An adult man needs 55g of protein in a day and an adult woman needs 48g of protein. But there are myths also about protein. Let’s find out in this blog.

What is protein and how does it will help in weight loss?

Protein is found in our entire body parts like bones, skin, hair and other parts of the tissue. Protein helps in building body muscles and increases body strength. It also helps in weight loss. Protein is made up of 20+ building blocks known as Amino acids. As per the National medical an adult needs 7g protein for every 9 kg of their weight.

Let me tell you how protein works in our body

The human body uses the food we eat and it then breakdowns protein into amino acids which then generate the right amount of protein for your muscles and cells. Another myth takes a scoop of whey protein and eats a high protein meal, it goes directly into the muscles. But it does not work like this!

There are 23 amino acids out of which 15 amino acids are for your body which helps in building but the remaining 8 amino acids are called essential amino acids, which we need to get from different foods. These 8 amino acids you can get from your regular food like cabbage, beans, green peas, cauliflower, cucumber, nuts, seeds, sprouts, eggs, and meat, which we eat on regular basis. We should have the right amount of proteins. Make sure your body doesn’t get an excessive amount of protein because, with the extra protein, fat will also come in a role play. An excess amount of protein will be stored in the form of fats. And these type of fats is hard to excrete from your body. For the excretion of fat, you will put more pressure on your kidneys to excrete this out.
 You can’t depend on a single nutrient for reducing weight and building muscles. If you totally depend on a protein-rich diet for reducing weight and building muscles, it means you have a vitamin deficiency and there can be a hormonal imbalance in your body.
