Weight Loss Protein Diet
Proteins are one of the food sources apart from carbohydrates and fats which
form a significant part of the human diet. Proteins are the raw building materials for the human body and this
material comes from amino acids which are building blocks of protein. A human diet should consist of at least
30-40% of protein diet.
Proteins are categorized based upon their quality:
Complete proteins: come from animal sources such
as meat, milk and egg whites , low fat cottage cheese. Complete proteins consists of all the amino acids that are
required by the human body to build muscle tissue.
Incomplete Proteins: sources are vegetables,
beans(kidney chickpeas) , legumes, . These proteins do not contain all the essential amino acids required by the
body, However, these proteins are also a significant part of the human diet. These type of proteins are generally
eaten by vegetarians.
A person trying to lose weight or working towards good health should make both complete and
incomplete proteins as a part of their daily diet.
