Women's Health (UK) - - BRIEF -

If your get-lean goals have re­sulted in a rather meat-heavy diet, then you may be in­ter­ested to know that a study in the jour­nal Jama In­ter­nal Medicine found that get­ting your pro­tein quota ve­gan-style – via say, lentils, legumes and nuts – can help you live longer. Still a com­mit­ted car­ni­vore? Then con­sole your­self with the fact that, as long as you’re liv­ing a healthy life­style, your choice of an­i­mal pro­tein makes a big dif­fer­ence – ditch red meat for chicken or fish and you’ll have the same low­ered risk as your plant-based coun­ter­parts. One last nugget: if you’re go­ing ve­gan on your shake, know that ‘hemp has about 15g less pro­tein per scoop than whey, so you’ll need to dou­ble your serv­ing,’ says Krystina Reimer, head of nu­tri­tion and PT at Lon­don gym Lo­max.
