Every year it seems a new diet fad makes headlines – Scarsdale, Atkins, South Beach and Zone diets to name a few. While they may work for some people, it can be hard to keep the weight off. One thing experts know for sure is that protein plays an important role in both healthy eating and weight loss. Research shared in a major medical journal shows that people who fill up specifically on plant protein versus animal protein can lose substantially more weight than those who do not.
In addition, researchers with the journal Nutritional Reviews found that the average body weight for both male and female vegetarians is three to 20 percent lower than that of meat eaters.
First for Women magazine recently examined firsthand the powerful role complete plant protein from brown rice and yellow pea plays in detoxification, weight loss and weight management. Magazine editors interviewed several women with weight struggles who were ready to do an “ultra fat flush” involving this type of protein. For two weeks, women drank a plant-protein smoothie for breakfast and lunch. They followed that with lean protein and unlimited steamed green veggies and salad for dinner. As reported, women successfully lost belly fat, shed baby weight and overcame certain metabolic issues.
Protein is vital to good health, but not all protein is created equally. While protein from brown rice and yellow pea has a higher pH and is thought to be easier to digest than protein from animal sources, simply mixing two or more plant sources does not yield an ideal amino acids profile. LivingFuel LivingProtein is the only plant protein that takes the next step of optimizing the blend with specific vegetarian amino acids.
Magazine staff also taste tested several of these popular plant protein powders. They narrowed down the field to three and selected LivingProtein as a top protein source, writing that “Tasters loved the smooth, earthy powder. And it has probiotics for gut health and immunity.”
LivingProtein is the only protein tested that is rich in antioxidants with a Total ORACfn value of 18,900 per serving, providing broad-spectrum protection against free radicals and reactive oxygen species that attack the human body. Each serving of LivingProtein contains 21 grams of Organic Brown Rice Protein and Non-GMO Yellow Pea Protein combined with specific vegetarian amino acids to give it an amino acids profile similar to egg but from plant sources. LivingProtein is rich in protein, fiber (six grams of soluble fiber per serving), prebiotics and microencapsulated probiotics. It is the most complete and unrivaled product in its category.
“We have been encouraging this detox method called the LivingFuel Fast for many years and are excited to see First for Women spread the word,” says Living Fuel Founder & CEO KC Craichy. “People are really catching on to the unique qualities of a complete plant based protein without the negatives associated with soy.” For more information about the LivingFuel Fast, see http://www.LivingFuel.com/Getting-Started_The-Living-Fuel-Fast.aspx.
What is not in LivingProtein is as important as what is in it. LivingProtein does not contain soy, whey, added sugars, milk, gluten, egg, hydrogenated oils, yeast, GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or irradiated nutrients.
LivingProtein can be simply mixed with water for a basic protein shake or it can be a main protein source in homemade fruit or veggie smoothies.
“We are thrilled to see so many people enjoy the benefits of LivingProtein,” continued Craichy. “It is a critical part of the detox process and can help kick off a healthy weight optimization program.”
