How many ounces of meat or protein should I be having?
Per meal should be 3-6 ounces per meal. That’s about the size of your
fist. That’s one portion size of what you should be having. Vegetarian
protein replacement can be 1.5 cups of beans. That is a good portion
Total grams of protein each day?It is your body weight. So it’s
between 80-100% of your body. So I weight 185 lbs. I try to get 160-180
grams of protein a day.
Many might think that’s quite a bit. My recommendation is to start
with 50% of your body weight. 60-80 grams to begin with. Try to increase
it a little each day.
Protein is absorbed in your body WAY better then sugar. Sugar gets
stored in your body. Aka fat = sugar. So get your protein in. Protein
also helps you feel full longer!!
What is better for you Fruit or Vegetables?
Fruit is good for recovery. The sugar is good for post intense workouts.
Vegetables have essential vitamins and minerals. Essential means that
your body cannot make it. They also are high in fiber. Fiber helps with
digestion. It makes you feel full longer and helps the absorption of
the nutrients in other foods eaten.
If you are eating more fruits then vegetables you are probably taking
in too much sugar. Natural sugar is fine, but still can be too much
It all comes down to how you feel. If you feel good, then you’re
going to keep going. If you don’t then you’re gunna stop. That’s what
it’s all about.
If you’re gunna have ice cream and you know it’s going to hurt you in
the long run and you continue to do it. Then you saying to yourself oh
man, how come I’m not losing weight? How come I’m not being healthy? How
come I have chronic pain?
Think about this just for a second…
Is it what you are putting into your body?
I DARE to say YES!!
I’m addicted to being happy and feeling positive. I’ve gotten to the
point now if anything or anyone is negative it physically hurts me. If I
eat ice cream or anything full of sugar my body hurts! When you stop
the high sugar for so long you body goes into a mini shock and puts it
on your body. That hurts.
