Boosting Your Success: 100% Natural Whey Protein
Did you know your body loses and replaces between 300 and 800 billion cells each day? That's up to 10 million each second! Protein is the necessary ingredient for the building maintenance and repair of your body's tissues. It is the structural building block of the human system.
Did you know that one of the main causes of fatigue in many people, particularly women, is the lack of protein in the morning and at lunch? Is this happening to you?
Did you know that if you have sugar and starch cravings your body may actually need more protein? If you want a strong and healthy body, protein is essential. We recommend you meet your body's daily needs by eating foods containing "high quality" or "complete" protein such as lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt and soy. There are many other sources of protein, including seeds, nuts, beans, legumes and soy products like tofu and tempeh. These are excellent for adding variety to your daily meals.
A high quality protein powder can offer you a healthy alternative to ensure you getthe protein you need each day, especially at breakfast. One scoop of Natural Whey Protein powder equals 23 grams of protein-the equivalent of about 3 oz. of meat. In a pinch, for breakfast you can boost the protein in a glass of milk or soy milk by adding a scoop of protein powder and you are off to a great start!
