7 Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Protein


The LIMU LEAN System is all about supplying you with unique, balanced sources of liquid protein. Why? Because protein is one of the most important factors of good nutrition.

Protein helps keep your energy level high, your hunger level low—and it’s essential to the building (and rebuilding) of cells and tissues in the body. Simply put, you need protein to function at your best … but how do you know if you’re getting enough?

Opinions vary when it comes to how much protein you should consume each day, so it’s best to listen to your body to know if you’re lacking. Here are a few signs you may need to add a little more protein to your diet:

1. You crave sugar.

Sugar cravings

Constant cravings for sugar and carbs are often signals that your diet is too low in protein. If you’re relentlessly snacking between meals and craving sweets, it could be your body’s sneaky way of telling you to up your protein intake.

2. Your muscles and joints feel weak or sore.

The protein you consume helps build and repair muscles, tissues and cells, and when you’re not getting enough, your body has to tap into its own reserves. If you’re feeling weak, sore, or you’re flabby where you used to be muscular—protein deficiency may be to blame.

3. You get sick a lot.

Sick a lot

When we have enough protein in our bodies, our system is much more likely to track down and destroy unwanted bacteria and viruses before they get the best of us. If you’re constantly under the weather, your body may be reacting to insufficient levels of protein in your diet.

4. Your hair and nails are in bad shape.

Hair and Nail Troubles

Our hair and nails need to be “fed” protein in order to grow strong. Without enough protein, you may notice that your nails become brittle and easy to break and your hair is constantly falling out and appears to be thinning.

5. Your ankles and feet swell.

Protein plays an important role in the amount of fluid that accumulates in the tissues of the feet and ankles. If you’re experiencing swollen feet and ankles, you may be undergoing nutritional edema (swelling) due to lack of protein.

6. You struggle with brain fog.

Protein is essential for a healthy, happy mind and body. It stabilizes blood sugar, and without enough of it, it’s common to get moody, distracted and even little delirious. If you deal with brain fog on the daily, it may be time to reexamine the protein levels in your diet.

7. You’re always tired.

When you’re not getting enough protein, your body responds by feeling tired and worn out. It’s sending you a signal that you need a solid, nutritious source of sustainable energy. If you’re feeling sluggish all the time, try increasing your protein intake.

If you’re struggling with some of the signs above, try adding these products to your daily routine and power up with healthy dose of protein!
