Complete vs. Incomplete Protein Sources: What's the Difference?

The health benefits of eating protein go way beyond just building muscle.1 This nutrient powerhouse also helps keep your bones strong and skin healthy.2 Another protein plus? When included in a balanced diet, it could support weight loss by helping to boost metabolism (it takes more energy to digest proteins vs. carbohydrates or fats).3 Protein-packed foods can also help you feel satisfied, so you’re not reaching for a bag of chips later!

 

Still, if you’re looking for foods with protein, you may have experienced some major moments of confusion. For example, when wandering down the grocery aisle, have you noticed that some packaged goods — like beef jerky — tout that they’re a “complete protein”? Or, have you read articles that call certain foods, like beans, “incomplete proteins”? If you’re thinking — what gives? — you’re not alone. Discover the difference between a complete and incomplete protein, so you can make the best nutritional choices for you.

Weight Loss Diet for Picky Eaters: 5 Tips That Actually Work

Trying to lose weight as a picky eater can be frustrating. It’s like bowling with a ball of rubber bands: You just don’t have the nutritional heft you need to knock inches off your waistline.

 

Vegetables, fruits, and seafood are all heavyweights in terms of vitamins and minerals, but according to University of Pennsylvania researchers, they’re also the three foods picky eaters are most likely to avoid.1 And ultimately, that leads to less-healthy diets overall, according to surveys from the same team.2

 

Truth is, adventurous diets can be good for you. Rejecting foods based on color and texture can rob you of the micro and macronutrients you need for peak metabolism. But by eating a wide variety of nutritious foods in smart portions, you can improve your body’s ability to quell aches and pains from inflammation, boost your energy levels, and even reduce pesky fat around your belly.
