Personal Trainer Denver CO wants you to eat complete protein with every meal.
Eat complete (containing all the essential amino acids), lean protein with every meal. Egg whites are the best source, although a vegetarian can accomplish this too.
Amino acids are the basic structural building units of proteins. Of the 20 standard amino acids, Eight are called essential amino acids because the human body cannot synthesize them from other compounds at the level needed for normal growth, so they must be obtained from food.
The eight essential amino acids are:
For many, the requirements get more complicated. Cysteine, taurine, tyrosine, histidine and arginine are semiessential amino acids in children, because the metabolic pathways that synthesize these amino acids are not fully developed. The amounts required also depend on the age and health of the individual, so it is hard to make general statements about the dietary requirement for some amino acids.
