7/7/13-Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 8. July 2013 18:04

Protein plays such an important part in muscle growth. Try to eat 4 ounce of lean protein at every meal.  At breakfast that can be accomplished through egg whites, high protein cereal, or a protein shake,  if your short on time.

 

At lunch and dinner you can add quinoa, black beans, nuts,  greek yogurt ( really high in protein), lentils, seafood, white meat turkey, chicken or pork, or beef tenderloin( Tenderloin is the leanest cut of beef.  A ribeye contains almost twice the saturated fat as tenderloin).

Try having protein after exercise to see muscle gains from your hard work.  If you pair protein with carbs after exercise, the carbs enhance the protein absorption.  Just use moderation in the portion size if your exercise time co-ordinates with snack time versus meal time.

Be aware of how your body metabolizes protein (if I eat too much chicken, it negatively affects my digestive system), and realize that more than 4 ounce per meal doesn’t do more for you.  At certain levels, the body doesn’t metabolize the additional protein, so portion control is helpful.
