TIP: EAT MORE PROTEIN!
Your body needs at least 25-30g of protein in a meal to turn off your “I’m hungry hormones” and keep them off for multiple hours. If you eat 25-30g three times a day and fill in with clean, healthy snacks you will reduce weight, keep it off and increase lean muscle mass.
What does 30g of protein look like?
4 ounces of lean beef (steak or ground) = 28g protein
3 ounces of turkey bacon = 29g protein
5 ounces tuna = 24g protein
1 cup Greek yogurt = 18g protein
1/2 cup black beans = 8g protein
1 tablespoon almond butter = 8g protein (handful nuts = 7g)
1 egg = 6g protein
1 cup frozen/chopped spinach = 6g protein
1 serving AdvoCare Muscle Gain= 25g protein
TIP: EAT BREAKFAST!
It is easy to forget or skip, but we need to fuel our bodies after hours of sleep. A healthy, high protien breakfast gives our body the energy it needs for the day and jumpstarts our metabolism to help burn off more calories. Aim for 25g of protein for breakfast.
TIP: WATER! WATER! WATER! Drink one gallon/day
128oz= 1 gallon
If you are like me and ounces only make sense when referring to Starbucks, that would only 6 iced venti cups!
hydrated with water can help with our weight management, give us increased energy, flush out toxins, improved skin complexion and so much more!
TIP: LIFT WEIGHTS!
Here is WHY!
TIP: EAT BEFORE THE PARTY AND EXERCISE OUTSIDE!
Did you know that the average person gains 8-12 pounds during the holiday season? I am not surprised. I think it can be easy to do since there are so many opportunities to eat more and less time to workout.
1) Eat a small meal before the party. The last thing we want us to get there and NOT feel in control, then hit the appetizers like it’s our last meal. I am totally guilty of this.
2) Get outside to do some exercise. There are benefits being outside, the sun and Vitamin D, fresh air, and it stimulates different parts of your brain that we won’t get in a gym.
