Protein is your bodies primary source of material for building and repairing, muscles, bones, teeth, skin, hair, nails, and organs. Protein comes from a Greek word meaning "of primary importance." Protein helps regulate and maintain your blood pressure, blood sugar level, immune function and metabolism. Protein will go first towards muscle repair and rebuilding cells.


Protein is the most important source of amino acids. Your body needs a total of 22 different amino acids to form all of its necessary protein. Eight of them can be obtained only through the food you eat which are called the essential amino acids. They are tryptophan, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, valine, leucine, and isoleucine.

Most protein foods of animal origin such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk, contain all of the essential amino acids and are therefore called complete proteins. Proteins found in vegetables are usually lacking one or more of the essential amino acids, so they are called incomplete proteins. Lean proteins such as chicken, turkey, lean beef, pork loin and sea food are all performance enhancing because of the large amounts of these branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) which are crucial in recovery after training for both strength and endurance athletes.

The advantages a high protein diet has are its ability to make you feel full and satisfied, muscle building and muscle preservation during dieting. Adapting to a  high-protein diet is one of the most important changes you can do for long-term health and weight control.

Beef, Chicken, Turkey, Buffalo, Lamb, Venison, Fish, Eggs and Pork
