PROTEIN
Daily: 1 gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight
Under 100 grams of starchy carbohydrates daily.
Example:
current weight = 165 lbs
goal weight = 140 lbs
protein = 140 grams/day (add 30 – 40
grams if you exercise more than once a day –
always include fresh vegetables!)
*Your daily amount of protein should be spread out over 5-6 smaller
meals to enhance absorption and utilization and to keep your
metabolism burning hot all day long!
Whether your goal is to gain muscle, lose fat, or a little bit of both,
protein is crucial! Your muscles need protein for maintenance, repair
and rebuilding; keeping muscle synthesis maximized stimulates your
metabolism to burn fat and carbohydrates for energy. Protein also
provides a more stable, sustained energy than carbohydrates, while
stimulating gut hormones that trigger feelings of satiety.

Cottage cheese, nonfat, ½ cup (4 oz)

*Cheese and nuts are not adequate protein sources on their own; their
fat content is too great to be used solely to reach your protein needs.
Eat sparingly and use them to compliment other proteins, i.e. plain
Greek yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese with nuts and berries.
