Protein intake is particularly important for physically active people for its role in muscle repair and for those on a weight management programme as it helps you feel fuller for longer and can help build and maintain lean muscle mass. Proteins are made up of amino acids. There are many functions of proteins:
- Creates and maintain lean muscle mass
- Plays an important role in tissue repair
- Helps the immune system function properly
- Provides a source of energy when carbohydrates and fats are not available
- Helps you feel fuller for longer as the body takes longer to digest them
Animal protein tends to be higher in fat than plant protein. If consuming animal protein, ensure you choose low fat options or lean cuts of meat. Good proteins – fish, eggs, milk (skimmed), soya, poultry, low fat dairy products, lean cuts of red meat
Try to avoid or limit – cuts of meat with high saturated fat content, high fat dairy products and processed meats that have hidden fat content.
