I WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT AND GET TONED. HOW MUCH PROTEIN DO I NEED?

Unfortunately, there is no magic wand for weight loss, but protein definitely plays a role. You need to take a look at both the quantity and quality of what you are eating and make improvements one at a time. Here are a few tips to get started:

  • SET THE TONE WITH BREAKFAST
    The key to making better choices throughout the day is a nutrients bomb breakfast— go for quick eggs with a bit of veggies and you’ll be ready to go.
  • INCLUDE A LEAN PROTEIN AT EACH MEAL
    Protein has a high thermic effort so it takes energy (calories) to break it down. During training I suggest about 0.8-1.5g of protein per pound per day. I recommend splitting it up throughout the day—including protein with every meal.
  • EAT MORE COLOR
    Fruits and veggies are loaded with nutrients and fiber, and are low in calories. I recommend at least 3 colors at each meal to get the variety of nutrients your body needs.
  • THINK BEFORE YOUR DRINK
    Skip the empty calories from coffee drinks and sweet tea and stick with the spring water.
