IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PROTEIN!


Did you know that the majority of Americans are not only overweight but also UNDERMUSCLED? Partly due to inactivity and inadequate protein intake.


Proteins are the building blocks of life. Every cell in the human body contains protein. Then why aren't we getting enough? The RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) of protein is extremely low and needs to be updated as science has developed over the years proving the benefits of a higher protein diet.


Here are my top reasons why you should increase your protein intake.


  1. It's the most satiating macro nutrient and will help curb your hunger.

  2. Provides energy to your body.

  3. Helps build muscles, bones, cartilage, tissues and skin.

  4. Protein plays and important role in hormone regulation.


Here are ways that you can increase your protein intake.


  1. Eat you protein first at each meal.

  2. Build your meals around a quality source of protein.

  3. Increase the serving size of the protein you are already consuming.

  4. Add protein powder to your smoothies. Vegan option

  5. Sprinkle Nutritional Yeast on salads, veggies and eggs.
