Protein is the KEY to optimizing your hormones + metabolism for weight loss

Feeling a bit flabby? It might be due to losing muscle mass. When you don’t eat enough protein, your muscles might not hold up as well.

Craving sweets and carbs more than usual? That’s a classic sign. Protein keeps you full, so if you’re not getting enough, you might find yourself reaching for snacks more often.

Tired all the time? This could be because protein is key for energy. If workouts or daily tasks feel harder, it might be a protein issue.

Slow Recovery After Exercise? Without enough protein, muscle soreness may last longer after workouts.

Hair, Skin, and Nail Problems? Protein deficiency can affect the health of your hair, skin, and nails.

Catching colds more often, or just not bouncing back quickly? Your immune system needs protein to fight off bugs effectively.

Mood Swings? Protein is crucial for mood-regulating neurotransmitters; a deficiency can lead to moodiness or irritability.

Weight Loss Plateau? A stalled weight loss could be due to muscle mass loss from insufficient protein.

Low protein impacts these hormones:
-Insulin Sensitivity: Protein helps regulate blood sugar, and a lack can disrupt insulin sensitivity, affecting hunger and weight management. 
-Cortisol Levels: Low protein intake can raise cortisol levels, leading to stress and potential weight gain.
-Ghrelin and Leptin Balance
-Growth Hormone and IGF-1
-Thyroid Hormones:
-Estrogen and Progesterone Balance
-Reproductive Hormones
-Neurotransmitter Production
