Protein has the power to reduce your waistline because it satifies the appetite by taking longer than other food to digest, metabolize and be used for energy. So you can end up eating less food by consuming a smaller intake of protein from healthy sources. This, in turn, can lead to weight loss which improves the management of PCOS.
However, protein has tended to be overlooked in the avalance of weight loss advice in recent years, say nutrition experts. That’s because protein intake will initially cost you a few more calories than other healthy fare like fruits and vegetables, though it more than compensates by eventually burning more calories.
“Many women perceive foods that are rich in protein as being high in calories or fattening,” says Laura J. Krushall, director of nutrition sciences at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. “But this isn’t the case.”
Admittedly, protein isn’t as portable as other foods. Good sources like fish and lean meat aren’t quick or convenient to prepare. That may help explain why up to a third of women between the ages of 20 and 40 don’t get their recommended daily amount of protein, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
In fact, a growing number of nutritionists believe that even the current dietary guidelines for protein as a macronutrient are way too low. So tomorrow we’ll report further on the power of protein.
