And the building blocks of protein—called amino acids—are needed to build muscle, make antibodies and keep your immune system going. Compared to fat and carbs, protein packs a bigger punch when it comes to filling you up and keeping you satisfied. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/health_blog/how_much_protein_do_i_need_to_eat#comments Health Blog Brierley Wright Nutrition Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 21 Aug 2013 19:35:49 +0000 Stefan_20 278307 at http://www.eatingwell.com 3 Surprising Diet “Wreckers” That Erase Your Hard Work http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/3_surprising_diet_wreckers_that_erase_your_hard_work <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/diet_blog/3_surprising_diet_wreckers_that_erase_your_hard_work" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MCL_101745711_woman_snack_aimee_herring_310.jpg" alt="3 Surprising Diet “Wreckers” That Erase Your Hard Work Blog Post" title="3 Surprising Diet “Wreckers” That Erase Your Hard Work Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>I work hard for every pound of weight I lose (and those last few post-baby pounds this year were <em>stuh</em>-born).
