So I decided to send out a “mini course” so you can learn more, and have your Q’s answered.
Over the next few days, we're going to explore one of the most important (but often neglected) habits that will help you get the lean, toned, healthy body that you want - Getting adequate protein in your diet.
Why is protein important?
Amino acids, the building blocks of protein, are responsible for:
- Structure (of muscle, connective tissues, tendons, bones, etc....)
- Immune chemicals
- Transport vehicles around the body.
What are the best protein sources?
There are plenty of delicious and convenient ways to get protein in your diet, such as:
- Lean Meats (ground beef, chicken, turkey, bison, strip steak, pork) *pasture raised and grass-fed when possible
- Wild-caught Fish
- Pasture raised Eggs
- Dairy (if your digestive system tolerates it well)
- Supplements (whey protein isolate powder)
How much protein should I eat?
For women, we recommend 1 palm-sized serving of protein with every meal… generally around or over 100g per day. For men, 2 palm-sized servings… generally around or over 140g per day.
Getting adequate protein at each meal will stimulate your metabolism, improve muscle mass and recovery, and help reduce body fat.
All good things that we want!
So this week, let's work on making protein your main focus.
Are you getting a significant protein source with each meal?
Note: The next installment of this mini-course will come with some tips on how to use Super Shakes to add an extra serving of protein to your day.
