Plant Protein and Animal Protein Sources Compared

Advice from Susan Bowerman as to how to get a balance of plant protein and animal protein into the diet. We need protein to manufacture important proteins and to build and maintain muscle. Protein rich foods satisfy hunger, and keep us going all day long. However, there is a difference between animal proteins and plant proteins and how our body takes them in. Susan explains the key differences in this week’s Healthy Living video for Herbalife.

How to increase the amount of protein you eat?

Adding extra protein to your everyday foods is one of the best ways to keep your hunger under control. Here are some simple ways to add more protein to your meals. This includes adding protein powder to porridge, other hot cereals, mashed potatoes, soups, scrambled eggs and yogurt. Eggs are versatile protein boosters. Non fat cottage cheese, milk and soy milk, soy beans, tofu can also be used.

The Benefits of Soy Protein

The humble soybean boasts some extraordinary nutritional benefits. Soy is the only vegetarian source of complete protein. This means that soy supplies all the essential amino acids – the building blocks that must be supplied by the diet because the body cannot manufacture them. In fact, the quality of soy protein is as good as animal sources of protein such as meat, eggs or milk products.  And other soy foods like tofu, soy milk and miso are versatile and offer a healthy nutrition.

Numerous scientific studies demonstrate the benefits of soy protein for heart health when included as part of a healthy, low-fat diet, which is why Herbalife Formula 1 shakes have a healthy heart symbol on the label.

How Much Protein Should I Eat?

Eating the right amount of protein for your individual size and weight is vital for health. Protein increases lean body mass and boosts
metabolism, enabling you to burn significantly more calories. Ask your Herbalife Coach for a Protein factor, which will identify your
unique body composition and optimum protein needs.

Protein Shakes UK

Recently launched in the UK, the Herbalife24 Sports Nutrition Programme, includes protein shakes that allow athletes to customise their nutrition program based on their specific sport, day-to-day needs, and training demands. Each product is tested for banned substances (anti-doping testing) by an independent third-party laboratory (BSCG.org) assuring athletes that what they put into their bodies is exactly what is listed on the label. The line contains only natural colors, flavors, or sweeteners. There are two recovery protein shakes in the Herbalife 24 range:

Rebuild Endurance, a post-workout recovery shake with higher ratio of carbohydrates to protein for endurance athletes.

Rebuild Strength, a post-workout recovery protein shake with higher ratio of protein to carbohydrates.

Many protein shakes already in the market have huge amounts of whey protein but all that protein at once isn’t effectively utilised. Which is why for Herbalife 24 Rebuild Strength they have developed a Tri-core protein blend of free amino acids, whey and casein proteins to help rebuild muscle and speed recovery.

Low fat high protein diet

Each ShapeWorks™ programme is based on the Herbalife foundation of Cellular Nutrition and includes nutritious shakes. These high-protein, low-fat diet shakes, when taken twice a day while losing fat and once a day on a maintenance programme, control hunger and keep you feeling your best by curbing your appetite and regulating your body mass by personalising the amount of protein your body needs.

 Tips for healthy eating and weight loss

1. Do control your portion size – if you feel hungry straight after eating, wait for 15 minutes and you’ll normally find your desire to eat again has gone! Also try to eat 5 smaller meals, rather than 3 larger meals during the day.
2. Do eat foods that induce satiety; foods rich in protein, fibre and complex carbohydrates.
3. Do Trim the fat – Since fat is the most concentrated source of calories, eating too many fatty foods is a fast-track to weight gain.
4. Do exercise – regular exercise benefits health, well-being and weight control.
5. Do drink water – it’s healthy, helps keep your mind clear and drinking a large glass of water before meals helps portion control.
6. Do use Herbalife protein-based products – F1 shakes and F1 Express Bar, F3 Personalised Protein Powder (PPP) and Protein Bars are ideal to help keep you feeling fuller and satisfied until your next meal, plus they’re calorie-controlled to help
you achieve your weight management goals.
7. Do eat a healthy breakfast to kick-start your metabolism and energy levels for the day.

High Protein Low Carlorie Foods

Learning how to manage your hunger and feel fuller for longer is key to achieving your weight management goals. Herbalife gives you
some tips on what foods enhance satiety whilst keeping calorie intake  in check.

Satiety: maintaining the feeling of fullness for longer
Ensuring you eat satiety foods such as protein and fibre is a great way to stop over-eating; helping to reduce overall energy intake and achieve weight management goals.

Protein takes longer and more energy to digest than simple carbohydrates.
Fibre takes longer to digest than simple carbohydrates and acts as a buking agent.

Drinking water is good for general health and wellbeing plus, it can be a good way to help stop over-eating. Drink a large glass of water before each meal, and as you eat – you’ll notice you feel fuller much sooner than normal!

“I know protein is essential for good nutrition and elps satiety. I eat lean meat, but can you recommend some other foods that are a good source of protein but with low calories to help add variety to my diet?”

Lean meats such as fish, chicken, turkey and lean red meats are all good sources of animal protein but it is good to include protein from vegetarian sources for variety, plus they are often lower in saturated fats.

Good sources of non-meat proteins are:

  •  Eggs – try to limit to no more than one a day.
  •  Pulses, nuts and seeds – almonds and walnuts are a great between meal snack.
  •  Soya products such as tofu and soya beans.
  •  Grains and dairy products – provide a small amount of protein.#

Plant proteins are generally higher in fibre which will also aid satiety
