The importance of protein in building muscle and losing fat

Protein to build muscle

To better grow muscle and achieve the shape you want, faster, you need to consume enough protein!

See here how much protein you should consume. HOW MUCH PROTEIN WE NEED PER DAY

 To get the maximum benefit from your workout and for your muscles, it is recommended to consume protein a few hours before or after your workout.

If it’s important for you  to maintain and/or build muscle, be sure to consume a protein-rich meal or drink within a few hours before or after exercise ( BCAA drink powder is also good to consume during exercise).

 It has been established that animal protein is more bioavailable to the body compared to plant protein(Vegan Protein) and is more effective for maintaining and increasing muscle mass. For vegan protein, it is important to make sure you have enough Leucine. 365JP Vegan Proteins contain enough Leucine.

The best animal protein powder is whey protein (milk protein)  WheyProtein 100%

Protein to lose fat

Eating protein helps you lose weight and fat for several reasons.

1. When you eat more protein, the feeling of fullness lasts longer.

Protein stimulates the release of satiety (stop eating) hormones in the gut. So when you eat protein, you naturally tend to eat less without feeling hungry.

*You can test this theory if you like. Try eating a carbohydrate-rich meal and then a protein-rich meal (20-40g of protein).

For example, eat a plain oatmeal porridge and a protein-rich oatmeal porridge (you can also find it in our range of products PROTEIN Porridge) and you’ll find that the latter keeps you full for much longer.

2. Protein makes your body work harder to digest it and your body uses more energy.

3. protein also helps you to maintain muscle mass during weight loss and ensures that most of the weight loss comes from fat (rather than consuming your own muscle to lose weight).
