Health Effects of Protein
By Anna Tourkakis,
eveloping countries have
problems with malnutrition,
due to insufficient protein in
their diets.In the United States,
getting enough protein is rarely
sume substantially more than
the Recommended Dietary Al-
lowance (RDA); these recom-
mended amounts are the av-
erage daily requirements for
healthy people. All animal foods
and their products, and plant
foods such as dry beans, peas,
soybeans, nuts and seeds are
considered protein sources.
Toomuch of a good thing
Eating too much protein has
no benefit. Contrary to popu-
lar belief, consuming more pro-
teinwill not result inbiggermus-
cles, strongerbonesor increased
immunity. Similar to carbohy-
drates and fats, protein is an en-
ergy-yielding nutrient. Such nu-
trients furnish calories the body
needs to carry out its functions.
If toomany calories are taken in,
the extra protein is not stored
as protein but rather is convert-
ed to and stored as fat.All excess
calories, regardlessof thesource
-- carbohydrate, fat or protein --
are stored as fat.
Consuming high amounts
of protein can be bad for your
health, especially if you eat a lot
of high-fat animal proteins, such
as hamburgers and cheese, and
few plant proteins. High-fat an-
imal foods contain significant
amounts of saturated fat, which
raises your level of blood cho-
lesterol and increases your risk
of heart disease. Another nega-
high protein, high-fat foods is
weight gain, from simply con-
suming toomany calories.
Go for balance
peas, soybeans, nuts and seeds)
are a healthier choice. For the
most part, they contain less fat
and more fiber- although nuts
and seeds can be high in fat, it
is the healthy kind. Plant foods
also contain no cholesterol and
icans recommend that the aver-
age person consume five and
a half ounces of
daily. This intake
is based on the premise that in-
dividuals consumeprotein from
both animal and plant sources.
Balance your protein sources
al times a week make plant pro-
small quantities toembellish. In-
or bean dip spread your sand-
when dining out order a com-
plete main dish such as chicken
broccoli and ziti.
