      Protein is an important part of a healthy diet. Proteins are made up of chemical 'building blocks' called amino acids. Your body uses amino acids to build and repair muscles and bones and to make hormones and enzymes. They can also be used as an energy source.

      Fiber helps regulate the body's use of sugars, helping to keep hunger and blood sugar in check. Children and adults need at least 25 to 35 grams of fiber per day for good health, but most Americans get only about 15 grams a day. Great sources are whole grains, whole fruits and vegetables, legumes, and nuts.

      Protein and fiber are not only important for physical health but also for supporting weight management goals.

      Proteins help increase feelings of fullness and satisfaction after meals, which can prevent overeating and support weight loss or maintenance efforts. Additionally, consuming protein-rich foods can help preserve lean muscle mass during periods of calorie restriction or weight loss, ensuring that the body primarily burns fat for fuel.

      Fiber, with its ability to slow down digestion and promote satiety, can also aid in weight management by reducing appetite and preventing unnecessary snacking between meals. Furthermore, high-fiber foods tend to be lower in calories and provide bulk to meals, helping you feel fuller for longer without consuming excess calories.
