Happy New Year from Steviva Brands, Inc.,

As I mentioned in the previous issue proteins are an important source of energy. They are also a leading component of our tissue (muscles, skin, bones), the building blocks of our cells and regulators of a variety of bodily functions. The typical American diet is already in most cases providing plenty of protein. So... when trying to lose weight on a low carb high protein diet... the key word is moderation. There is no value in adding even more protein to that amount, since protein cannot be stored in the body and the excess is eliminated in urine and feces. So maintaining a balance is important.

When people start consuming too much protein (over 2.0 g/kg/d), the extra protein can become a stressful stimulus for the kidney. This is even more of a concern as we get older and our organs are less efficient and effective.

I really can't emphasize enough how important it is to increase your water intake as you increase your proteins. Your liver and kidneys will thank you. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.
