I just found this on a great website I have found this great website. It is called EXERCISE YOUR FAITH. To get all the stuff on it, it would cost $7.95 a month. To me it is worth it even though I can't really afford it. Check it out. Here is the link for it.www.exerciseyourfaith.org
Here is some stuff on PROTEIN that I found on there.
What’s the deal with protein? You need it ladies, that’s the deal! It’s important to repair your body from your workouts and the daily stresses of your life. You body also uses protein to make hormones, enzymes, and other chemicals. Protein is an important building block of muscles, cartilage, bones, skin, and blood. Here are a few sources of protein that can be found on WebMD. While convenient, I would suggest that you don’t drink a protein shake every meal. While this provides wonderful protein, this may not satisfy your hunger due to how quickly the protein found in shakes will break down in your body. The same rule of thumb goes with protein from soy products. I suggest that every other meal your protein source comes from an animal product, peanut butter, or nuts.
Examples are as follows from WebMD:
Fish & Seafood
Seafood is one of the best sources of protein because it's usually low in fat. Fish such as salmon is a little higher in fat but it is the heart-healthy kind: omega-3 fatty acids.
Stick to the white meat of poultry for excellent, lean protein. Dark meat is higher in fat. The skin is loaded with saturated fat, so remove skin before cooking.
Milk, Cheese Yogurt
Not only are dairy foods excellent sources of protein but they also contain valuable calcium. Choose skim or low fat dairy to keep bones and teeth strong, prevent osteoporosis and enhance weight loss.
Eggs and Egg Whites
Eggs are one of the least expensive forms of protein. The American Heart Association says normal healthy adults can safely enjoy an egg a day.
One-half cup of beans contains as much protein as 3 ounces of broiled steak. Plus, these nutritious nuggets are loaded with fiber to keep you feeling full for hours.
This great and versatile white meat is 31% leaner than 20 years ago.
Twenty five grams of soy protein daily can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Combine soy protein foods like tofu with a healthy low fat diet.
Lean beef has only one more gram of saturated fat than a skinless chicken breast. Lean beef is also an excellent source of zinc, iron and vitamin B12.
Protein on the Go
Grab a meal replacement drink ( I drink EAS Advantage Shakes), cereal bar or energy bar. Check the label to be sure the product contains at least 6 grams of protein, and is low in sugar and fat
Do Not Worry
6:25-33 pp—Lk 12:22-31
Mt 6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
