High Protein Diet Chart For Indians

Protein is crucial to nearly every bodily function. We need it to have energy, to feel full, to build muscle, to process nutrients, boost immunity to send chemical signals and basically to stay alive. High protein is needed in clinical situations (pregnancy, malnutrition, injuries, burns) and general needs (muscle building, weight loss). Proteins are made up of amino acids and out of 21 amino acids 10 are not produced in our body, and we call them as essential amino acids. So it is necessary to get it from external sources to complete the formation of protein in our body. A high-protein diet is often recommended by bodybuilders and nutritionists to help efforts to build muscle and lose fat. It should not be confused with low-carbohydrate diets, such as the Atkins Diet, which are not food-energy–controlled and which often contain large amounts of fat.

Person to person the needs of protein differ, excess consumption of protein may cause health problems. The breakdown of protein results in two types bodily waste: non-nitrogenous and nitrogenous. Non-nitrogenous waste is combination of carbon dioxide and water. Nitrogenous waste is referred to as urea, uric acid and creatinine. Urea makes up the majority of these types of waste products. It is advised for those on a high protein diet to drink ample quantities of water to aid in the excretion process of this nitrogen based waste via the kidneys.
