Protein Pounds: Sculpting Secrets

Ever noticed how often protein gets mentioned when people talk about losing weight? It’s not just talk. There’s real science behind it. And at Total Sculpting, we’re not just about the Cryoskin treatments. We’re about giving you the whole picture. So, let’s break down why protein is such a big deal.

The Big Deal About Protein

  • Keeps You Full Longer: Eating protein can help you feel full, meaning you’re less likely to reach for that extra snack.

  • Burns More Calories: Your body uses more energy (calories) to digest protein than other foods. So, eating it can actually help you burn calories without lifting a finger.

  • Protects Your Muscles: When you’re losing weight, you want to lose fat, not muscle. Eating enough protein helps make sure of that.

  • Boosts Your Workouts: If you’re exercising, protein helps repair and build muscles, making your workouts more effective.

How Much Do You Need?

  • Regular folks: Men usually need about 56 grams a day, and women need around 46 grams.

  • If you’re active: You might need a bit more, especially if you’re doing intense workouts.

Great Sources of Protein

  • Meats: Think chicken, salmon, turkey, or lean beef.

  • Plants: Lentils, chickpeas, black beans, quinoa, and edamame are great choices.

  • Dairy & Alternatives: Start your day with Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, or almond milk for a protein boost.

  • Eggs: An omelette or even boiled eggs are protein-packed choices.

  • Seeds & Nuts: Almonds, chia seeds, flaxseeds, and sunflower seeds can be easily added to meals.
