One macro to rule them all

Protein is one major macronutrient we touched on at FitFaire. Protein should account for about 25% of your total caloric intake at a minimum. This, of course, should be increased or decreased depending on your unique circumstances and needs. Nutrition is a science, after all!

Why is protein so important? This macronutrient seemingly does it all:

  • Stimulates muscle growth and repair from daily breakdown
  • Attenuates the glycemic response in the body
  • Increases satiety / decreases hunger and cravings
  • Produces certain enzymes and hormones for healthy body composition
  • Building blocks for muscle, skin, cartilage, bone, collagen, and blood
  • Boosts metabolism by 20-25% through thermogenic effect of digestion

What are some ideal healthy protein sources? Many, in fact:

  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Meat
  • Seafood
  • Beans
  • Nuts & Seeds (provide small amounts)
  • Clean Protein Powder

The supplement industry is unregulated, so it's important to make sure you're not buying something that can be potentially harmful to your health. Here are some great examples of clean protein options:

  • Animal Whey Protein - highly absorbable with clean ingredients. For those with lactose intolerance, choose a product that features whey isolate for quicker absorption.
  • Jungle Vegan Protein - pea protein is the primary source, which happens to be the most absorbable of the available plant proteins.
  • Glow Collagen Protein - made of the building blocks of protein - amino acids. These are highly mixable formulas with no taste that can be used to boost protein into virtually anything!
  • Egg White Protein - Another alternative to pea protein for those who are vegetarian and sensitive to whey. You can regularly find egg white mixes at any grocery store!
