I’m warning you this isn’t the sexiest topic, like Hiit Training or Metabolic Resistance Circuit Training-
But, it is a fat-loss secret weapon.
And it’s critical for your results.
It’s important enough that I devote an entire Chapter to it in my Nutrition Crash Course book.
Want to know the Secret Weapon?
Increase your Protein intake.
When you do all kinds of good things will happen to your body.
Getting more protein into your diet has been proven to
1. Increase lean muscle
2. Reduce belly Fat
3. Increase your metabolism
4. Minimize the effects of menopause
5. Reduce blood pressure
6. Reduce Cholesterol levels
7. Lower glucose levels
8. Reduce post-exercise recovery time
9. Accelerate Fat-Loss
This is good stuff!
No American has to make sure they’re getting enough carbs in their diet, ever.
But you need to make sure you’re getting enough protein.
Do the simple math for your needs.
How to Calculate Your Protein Needs:
Your Weight in pounds divided by 2.2= weight in kg
Then your (Weight in kg) x (.8-1.8)gm/kg= protein gm.
The .8 is if you’re sedentary.
The 1.8 is if you’re exercising regularly. (you better be)
Example: 154 lb female who is a regular exerciser and lifts weights
154 lbs/2.2 = 70kg
70kg x 1.8 = 126 gm protein/day
Remember these are minimums. Unless you’re really focusing on this you’re probably under goal.
When you are getting enough protein, all kind of good things will happen.
You’ll feel fuller longer, you’ll lose fat especially belly fat, stronger muscles- bones-and tendons.
There’s really no downside here.
Tomorrow I’ll send you a list of the best high protein foods and some tricks you can use to make hitting your nutrition and weight loss goals easier.
P.s. Get the RESULTS you want and deserve.
