Protein is an important component of the body which is used to repair tissue (muscle, hair, bone, skin, cartilage and even blood) as well as help create enzymes and hormones. Like fat and carbohydrates, protein also has an energy vakue, 17kj per gram, but the body prefers fat and carbohydrates for energy use, which leaves protein free to repair and maintain the human body.

When consumed, protein is digested and broken down into amino acids. Amino acids are essentially the building blocks for protein and are obsorbed in the small intestines and then distributed to relevent cells elsewhere in the body. Those cells essentially take what they need, rearrange those amino acids to synthesise new proteins and repair old or damage ones. Afterwhich, any additional protein is either converted by the body into glucose, then subsquently glycogen to be used as energy if carbohydrate levels are low or converted into fat and stored. So extreme consumption of protein can also contribute to unecessary weight gain if energy in is greater than that was it expended.

Protein can be found in a variety of whole food sources, some of which include meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds, soy and even grains. Sources such as meats, poultry, fish, eggs, and soybeans carry complete proteins, meaning that they provide all of the required amino acids by the body. Whole foods such as legumes, some nuts & seeds and grains do not carry all the essential amino acids, where those that are missing must be consumed from other sources or supplementation.
