These foods I'm about to give you to hit your protein goals don't matter.
All that matters is that you execute on this knowledge I'm about to give you.
Every single day.
Especially when it's hard.
When you "don't feel like it."
During family drama.
SHIT THAT MAKES YOU UNCOMFORTABLE.
Hit your protein goals when work was easy and you "had time" to train?
ANYONE CAN DO IT WHEN IT'S EASY.
IS THIS MAKING YOU UNCOMFORTABLE YET?
Good! Because guess what? Discomfort leads to action and action leads to SELF IMPROVEMENT.
So let's get after this list.
When my clients come into our program, we put them ON A SUPER HIGH PROTEIN INTAKE.
Speeds up the metabolism.
Builds lean muscle mass.
But the real reason?
IT'S HARD TO EXECUTE.
So how do they execute?
When they start the program, they are given the INFORMATION on the highest protein, low fat/low carb, foods, so they can use the knowledge to execute. Why low carb/low fat? Because it keeps the calories low.
Here's what that list contains (bottom 3 are vegan options):
Boneless/skinless chicken breast
96% lean ground beef
Low-fat cottage cheese
Protein powder (under 2g fat and 3g carbs)
Meat alternative (under 3g fat)
Just a little rant on the vegan diet model.
If you're doing it for environmental and animal right reasons- COOL.
If you're doing it just for health reasons- JUST NO.
And if you don't weigh/measure/log your food- make sure you do that first before the gods of shredding come and slap you.
And yes, that's hard.
