“To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art”
What is the common factor amongst chicken, lentils, black beans, yoghurt, eggs, meat, cheese, almonds and nuts? Well, all of them are high protein and high fat food which fuels our body to grow and develop in a balanced manner. Protein being the building blocks of our body organs, muscles, tissues and hormones and Fats being the energy provider, are essentially to be consumed on a daily basis to ensure proper absorption of important nutrients.
Why are health enthusiasts so partial about protein and fat rich diet?
Protein and fats are needed by our body to build and repair the damaged tissue, to make enzymes, hormones and other essential body chemicals. Sufficient intake of protein and fat are essential for the development of healthy muscle mass and especially after exercise, as it is very important to repair the tissues damaged during the workout session.
High protein and fat diet satisfies the hunger to a larger extent, thereby curbing the desire to over eat. It also initiates the process of thermogenesis thereby burning the excess calories in our body to keep us fit.
Consumption of carbohydrate-rich food increases blood sugar, whereas protein and fat-rich diet lowers the level of sugar absorption in our body, thus preventing the spikes in blood glucose. People who are type 2 diabetic and vulnerable to diabetes must start balancing the protein-fat to carbohydrate ratio as 2:1 so that the energy and sugar levels are maintained.
Mood swings usually happen if there is hormonal imbalance. A protein-fat-rich diet controls the fluctuating mood and anxiety. Few amino acids act as a natural remedy for anxiety.
An alert brain requires constant supply of essential fatty acids and amino acids. People of all ages required more of protein and fats for concentration, brain cognizance, and learning / memory.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and can be absorbed only by essential fatty acids. Only Vitamin D ensures calcium absorption by our bones. Protein and fats are equally required for strong bones.
Consumption of protein and good fat infused diet ensures the maintenance of healthy clog-free arteries and also stabilizes blood pressure. It also lowers the levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
Protein foods synthesize glutathione, also referred to as the “master antioxidant” in the human body. Glutathione helps us detox and reduce carcinogens that lead to ageing. Deficiency of Glutathione leads to oxidative stress, which is related to diseases like cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anaemia, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, liver disease and viral infections. Fats give a natural shine to our skin. It maintains skin elasticity thus preventing aged look. Protein & Fat-rich diet helps in long life.
