A few years ago, I was a bit skeptical about the health benefits of eating vegan protein snacks.
I thought they would have a similar effect on me as regular carbs.
I was wrong.
A recent study published in the journal Cell Metabolism found that the protein in dairy-free, plant-based protein snacks may be as good as, or better than, that of regular, high-carb foods.
The researchers analyzed more than 200 plant- and animal-based snacks, ranging from protein powders to nuts and seeds, and found that there was a clear benefit to eating these protein snacks after workouts, and that it was the same with other foods as well.
The study looked at the effects of different types of protein on the body in different states.
The researchers tested the effects on two types of cells in the muscle cells of the legs and legs of young healthy volunteers.
The volunteers were in a state of undisturbed recovery after an intense workout and were given an intravenous dose of the muscle-stimulating hormone EPO, which stimulates the release of growth factors like growth hormone.
For this study, the volunteers received one serving of a protein-rich snack each day.
One serving contained 4 grams of protein, but the researchers found that a second serving contained 6 grams of total protein.
There was a noticeable difference in how much of this protein was released into the bloodstream when they took the second serving, which was 3.4 grams.
So, it’s not as simple as eating protein for the purpose of increasing protein intake.
A third study looked into the effect of plant-derived proteins on muscle tissue and found a similar result.
This study used the same protocol as the first two studies, and was conducted at the University of Florida.
They fed the volunteers either a plant- or animal-derived protein source with a dose of protein of 10 grams, and monitored the release rate of the growth factors EPO and TNF-alpha.
Both the plant-origin protein and the animal-origin proteins caused a significant decrease in EPO release, but when the plant protein was consumed with a high-protein meal, the decrease in the EPO hormone was reduced to the same level.
However, when the protein was eaten with a low-protein one, the release did not change.
All of these studies suggest that plant-food sources of protein may be an effective way to boost your muscle protein levels after workouts.
While you can eat more plant-protein protein snacks than you would with regular protein foods, they will not have the same effect as a high protein diet.
When you eat plant-powered, plant foods, the protein intake will be more than adequate to meet your protein needs, but it will not exceed your body’s requirements for protein.
You can make more protein from your plant foods than from the average person’s diet, but you should still limit the amount of protein you eat to the amount your body needs to maintain muscle mass.
If you eat too much, your body will not be able to build muscle and you will not feel the same benefits of exercise as you do when you eat the right amount of plant protein.
While the benefits of plant foods are certainly beneficial, it is important to realize that most people are not looking for the best possible protein intake for their health.
Most people are looking for a balanced diet with protein and carbs.
So, if you are looking to lose weight and get lean, eat a lot of plant and animal foods, and you may have a very high chance of achieving that.
