4 Ways Muscle Protein Can Increase Productivity and Save Time!
Beat The Sugar Cravings and Avoid “3PM Brain”
I think we are all familiar with that feeling that we get around 3 o’clock, your brain gets a bit fuzzy, your eyes start to feel tired and productivity is at a low. There are a ton of studies out there that have shown a diet low in protein triggers sugar cravings. Protein helps to stabilise your blood sugar levels and triggers dopamine in your brain, which is the reward hormone. So increasing your protein intake throughout the day or even chugging down a protein shake around “that” time of day can aid in the elimination of these symptoms and cravings, which in turn can help you to think more clearly and focus.
Increase Your Energy
Not consuming enough protein during the day can be a primary reason for fatigue. Protein-based foods provide the body with fuel to repair and build tissues. Protein takes longer than carbohydrates to break down in the body, providing a longer-lasting energy source.
A Protein Shake is great as a time saving meal replacement. Mixing a protein shake with liquid means you can and feel satiated and get that boost in energy that you get from foods. That way whether you are commuting to work in the morning or have a day full of clients, you only need to take 5 minutes out of your day to mix and consume your protein shake where ever you are! It is perfect for the multitasker.
Make It A Light Meal So You Aren’t Wasting Heaps Of Energy On Digestion
Having a heavy meal can create fatigue and brain fog. We’ve all had a burger and chips for lunch at some point and just felt completely weighed down and found it hard to think. Having something light like a protein shake instead can really improve productivity because you are getting a boost of energy without using a tonne of that energy for digestion during the day, which can also contribute to that “3PM Brain”.
