Nutrition is a strong cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle.
It’s not just how much you eat, but also what you eat.
“Including a source of protein with each meal helps to keep you fuller for longer by controlling your blood sugar levels. This really helps to reduce snacking and cravings,” says Lead Coach Damo.
“As well as rebuilding muscle mass after a tough workout session, it also increases the amount of calories you burn due to what’s called the thermic effect. When you eat protein, roughly 25% of the calories are burned just to break it down.”
“This is significantly higher than that of carbs (5-15%) and fat (0-5%). If you’re looking for some inspiration, some of my favourite protein-rich foods are chickpeas, tofu, nuts, and lentils.”
