How Protein Helps Weight Loss

You especially need recommended levels of daily protein, if you exercise. Arnav Sarkar says, “Weight training causes micro tears in the muscle tissues which need protein to repair. This causes an increased need for protein in the body for the regeneration of the muscle tissue.” And as we learned earlier – crossing the recommended levels of protein intake isn’t a wise thing to do. The most that it’ll increase to will be 1.2 or 2 grams for each kilo that you weigh – but do note that this cannot be self prescribed. If you are planning to increase muscle bulk and are increasing protein intake, consult a registered dietician or certified personal trainer before you begin.
