the proteins they are a nutrient your body needs to grow, repair cells and function properly.
Proteins are part, together with fats and carbohydrates, of the so-called macronutrients, or substances that must be taken abundantly every day to provide the energy necessary for all organs to function properly.
They are found in a wide range of foods and it is important that you get enough of them each day in your diet. The amount of protein you need varies depending on your weight, gender, age and health.
Meeting your protein needs can be achieved simply by eating a wide variety of foods. Food protein comes from plant and animal sources such as meat and fish, eggs, dairy products, seeds, nuts and legumes such as beans and lentils.
Proteins are also considered the builders of muscles and lean mass as they have few calories per gram and are responsible for strengthening muscle tissue, especially following intense training activities.
Each of us constantly needs to draw on a protein source, and habits and lifestyle don't always allow us to be able to provide our body with the necessary amount of protein.

the proteins they are made up of building blocks called amino acids. There are about 20 different amino acids that bind together in different combinations. Your body uses them to make new proteins, like muscle and bone, and other compounds like enzymes and hormones. He can also use them as an energy source.
Some amino acids can be produced by your body: there are 11 of them and they are known as non-essential amino acids. The other 9 amino acids, which your body cannot produce, are known as essential amino acids. You need to include enough of it in your diet so that your body can function properly.
The nutritional value of a protein is measured by the amount of essential amino acids it contains.
Different foods contain different amounts of essential amino acids. Generally:
- Animal products (such as chicken, beef, fish and dairy products) contain all essential amino acids and are known as "complete" proteins
- Soy products, quinoa and the seed of a green leaf called amaranth (consumed in Asia and the Mediterranean) also contain all the essential amino acids
- Plant proteins (beans, lentils, nuts and whole grains) usually lack at least one of the essential amino acids and are considered "incomplete" proteins
People following a strict vegetarian or vegan dietary should choose a variety of protein sources from a combination of plant foods every day to ensure they get an adequate mix of essential amino acids.
If you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, as long as you eat a wide variety of foods, you can usually get all the protein you need. For example, a meal containing grains and legumes, such as baked beans on toast, provides all the essential amino acids found in a typical meat dish.
Some dietary sources of dietary protein include:
- Lean meats, such as: chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, veal
- Fish and seafood
- Milk and dairy products, such as: yogurt (especially Greek yogurt) and cheese (especially cottage cheese)
- Nuts and seeds: almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds
- Legumes and beans, lentils, chickpeas, peas
If you're looking for ways to add more protein to your diet, here are some suggestions:
- Try a peanut butter sandwich. Remember to use natural peanut butter (or any other nut paste) with no added salt, sugar, or other fillers
- Cottage cheese or low-fat cottage cheese is high in protein and can be placed in your scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes or pasta dish. Or spread it on toast in the morning
- Nuts and seeds are fantastic in salads, with vegetables and served over curries. Try toasting some pine nuts or flaked almonds and tossing them into your green salad
- Beans are great in soups, casseroles, and pasta sauces. Try pouring a drained can of cannellini beans into your favorite vegetable soup recipe
- A plate of hummus and freshly cut veggie sticks as a snack or hummus slathered on your sandwich will easily give you extra protein at lunchtime
- Greek yogurt is a protein-rich food that you can use throughout the day. Add some to your favorite breakfast cereal, spoon it over a bowl of soup, or serve it as a dessert with some fresh fruit.
- Eggs are a versatile and easy option that can be enjoyed on their own or mixed into a variety of dishes.
Protein deficiencies can occur in people with special needs, such as the elderly and people on strict vegetarian or vegan diets.
Symptoms of protein deficiency include:
- wasting and shrinking of muscle tissue
- edema (accumulation of fluid, especially in the feet and ankles)
- anemia (inability of the blood to supply sufficient oxygen to cells, usually caused by dietary deficiencies such as lack of iron)
- slow growth (in children)
Beginning around age 50, humans begin to gradually lose skeletal muscle. This is known as sarcopenia and is common in older people. Loss of muscle mass is compounded by chronic disease, poor diet, and inactivity.
Meeting the recommended daily protein intake can help you maintain muscle mass and strength. This is important to maintain the ability to walk and reduce the risk of injury from falls.
To maintain muscle mass, it is important for older people to eat protein effectively. This means consuming high-quality protein foods, such as lean meats.
For athletes it is recommended, after training, to take a portion of high quality protein (such as a glass of milk or a tub of yogurt) with a carbohydrate-based meal to help maintain the protein balance in the body. Studies have shown that this is also a great habit after low to moderate aerobic exercise (such as walking), particularly for older adults.
