This happens so often that I’d make a bet that you’re not getting enough protein in your diet right now. And, quite honestly, it’s not your fault…
Most people think that bodybuilders are the only ones who need to be sure they’re getting enough protein…nobody really talks about the body’s NEED for protein when it comes to fat loss & general fitness.
But here are the facts:
- Protein Changes The Levels of Several Weight Regulating Hormones
- Digesting and Metabolizing Protein Burns Calories
- Protein Makes You Burn More Calories (Increases “Calories Out”)
- Protein Reduces Appetite and Makes You Eat Fewer Calories
- Protein Cuts Cravings and Reduces Desire for Late-Night Snacking
- Protein Helps Prevent Muscle Loss and Metabolic Slowdown
See what I’m saying? These are all HUGE benefits for anyone who’s trying to drop body fat, get lean & toned, and be fit.
Now that you know you’ve got to boost your protein intake, you’re probably wondering “how much??”
The best way to calculate your daily need is to have a Customized Nutritional Analysis done that uses your exact information & goals. This will give you the most accurate answer, plus info on how much fat/carbs/calories you should be eating in a day. (If you’re interested in this, hit REPLY and we can set that up). Otherwise, you can use a more generalized guideline which is that 30% of your overall calories should come from protein. You can find the number of grams by multiplying your calorie intake by 0.075. For example, on a 2000 calorie diet you would eat 2000 * 0.075 = 150 grams of protein.
If you want to maximize your efforts at getting lean, toned, and more fit then be SURE to get enough protein daily.
