Protein Is Important!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I hadn't noticed until I started Spark People that I was eating next to no protein! I was tired and felt hungry all the time. It was a challenge to add enough protein to my diet to meet my minimum daily requirement, but once I did I've never felt better. I feel full longer, have more energy and stamina, and my body just seems to work better.

    Same thing happened to me. I found I was never ever hitting my protein minimum so I focused on that and I feel so much fuller and less prone to snacking. I usually go for the lean meat, but I've been using whey protein and beans and yogurt to fill some of the gaps!

    Me too and I was really surprised. What proteins do you like? I eat meat but like to mix it up.
