Why Protein is Important For Muscle Growth 

Protein is the most important macronutrient for building muscle.

Your muscles are made up of individual fibers constructed of proteins. These proteins are made up of amino acids connected to one another in long strings. 

In other words:

Amino acids make up proteins, and proteins make up muscles. 

Three branched chain amino acids — leucine, iso-leucine and valine — make up about one-third of our muscle protein.

And guess what the seasoned beef in this beef stir fry recipe contains?

All three of these amino acids!

That’s why this beef stir fry recipe is great for muscle growth, and one of the best meals to make when you’re looking for high-protein meals.  

Beef Stir Fry Recipes | Protein For Faster Fat Loss

Protein is also a great ally in the quest for fat loss.

Protein promotes satiety (the feeling of being full), so it’s important to eat plenty of protein when trying to reduce fat. 

By keeping our stomachs full, we’re less likely to overeat — and that’s great news for fat loss.

So give it a try; we know you’ll love it!
