Protein

Protein is a nutrient that helps the body build and repair tissue, especially muscles.

Good sources of protein include meat, eggs, nuts, tofu, beans, and seeds. Adults should consume at least 0.36 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight every day. A high-protein diet is a great way to facilitate weight loss because it's very filling, it helps with post-exercise recovery, and eating protein burns more calories than eating carbohydrates or fats, since it takes more work to digest.
