Indian diets are typically carbohydrate rich so, mindfully incorporating protein in each meal only is the need of the hour.
A high carb diet would spike your blood glucose levels, protein on the other hand will help manage the sudden spikes in blood glucose by lowering the glycemic index of the food. Protein provides satiety and keeps you fuller for a longer time. This in turn helps reduce cravings.
Protein is an essential macronutrient which is found throughout the body. Protein is found in muscles, skin, hair, tissue, antibodies, transport molecules, enzymes, and other vital elements in the body, hence it is a very essential nutrient for the proper functioning of the body.
Everyone should take high-quality protein in moderation, regardless of the type of exercise they engage in. Here are some recipes for you to try.
