Protein: Your Secret Weapon for a Healthy Body


When it comes to a healthy diet, right after your daily calorie intake, your daily protein intake is a vital factor. It doesn’t matter if you want to lose weight, build muscle or just be a healthy functioning human being, your body needs protein. This vital nutrient plays a crucial role in helping your body live a healthy life. It is absolutely fundamental and essential to your survival and healthy nutrition. Thomas Oliver’s Gourmet Catering is packed with protein in each meal for your corporate catering in NYC.

What does protein do?

Protein is an important component of every cell in your body. It makes up much of your organs, muscles, skin, hair, nails, bones, cartilage, blood as well as some hormones in your body. Without protein, your body cannot function. It needs protein to repair and build tissues in your body, keep your skin, hair, and nails healthy and it is a requirement for sustaining life. Unlike vitamins and other nutrients, your body does not store protein and needs to draw on it from your protein intake daily.

3 important roles with protein

Without protein, your body would lose function of critical processes. These include:

  • Maintaining muscle: When your body experiences a deficit in protein, it instead burns your muscle tissue. By providing your body with protein, it leaves your muscle tissue alone and instead burns fat.
  • Keeps your full: Protein provides satiation to your body, which is the feeling of fullness. Protein curbs your appetite and controls your hunger.
  • Burns calories: Protein is the nutrient with the largest thermic effect, meaning it burns the most calories to digest, thus aiding in fat loss.
  • Protein rich food for your corporate catering NYC
