Importance of a Controlled Protein Diet

Lifestyle diseases are the new serial killer, with over 60% of all deaths in India being attributed to them.

Poor diet intake and lack of physical activity are the major contributors to this alarming statistic. Indian diets have changed over time and slowly we have started adding more protein to our diet and reducing carbohydrates and fats which were predominant in our diets before. This worked out well for a bit, since more protein and fewer carbohydrates in the diet are linked to loss of weight.

However, with protein-rich foods, you often end up consuming a lot of saturated fats which raise your LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) levels which causes blockages to form in your arteries. So, with an alarming number of people having more protein in their diets than their bodies need, adverse effects of high cholesterol levels and high cardiovascular disease risk have been on the rise.

To maintain a healthy, long and disease-free life, there is a need for a controlled or calculated protein diet that can help control or avoid lifestyle diseases. The right level of protein in the body ensures reduced appetite since protein takes longer to digest and keeps you full longer. It also improves blood lipid, insulin and blood glucose levels, which in turn has a positive impact on patients of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and high blood pressure.

ProTotal a good option for diabetes management

When you have diabetes, keeping an eye on your protein and caloric intake can be quite a challenging task. Even when you do consume protein-rich foods, you want to ensure that you’re staying away from the unhealthy fats and cholesterol that comes with it.
