All about Protein

During my programs, we will discuss the importance of protein in your diet. But, first lets discuss how not all protein is created equal. The source of meat matters.... Pastured, grass-fed and grass-finished, and/or organic meats: As consumer demand increases, it’s becoming easier to transition away from meat from concentrated animal feeding operations and stay within a reasonable budget. Shop grocery and warehouse stores, as well as smaller specialty markets, mail-order options, and farmer’s markets. With some effort, you can likely discover small, local farms and ranches that will sell to you directly at reasonable prices, especially if you sign up for regular orders or buy in bulk.

First let's look at what is good sources of protein:

❤️ Beef ❤️Eggs

❤️ Pork ❤️Dairy

❤️ Seafood ❤️Nuts & Seeds

❤️Consume .6 - 1 gram of protein per lb of lean body mass per day

❤️If pasture raised or grass fed is not available, look for Organic

❤️Limit high mercury fish: Swordfish, Shark, Marlin, Big Tuna- 200mg potassium: (watch closely if you are on blood pressure medications): Keeping your potassium levels up helps to safeguard your lean muscle mass during weight loss. Potassium prevents cramping and fatigue. A deficiency in potassium causes low energy, heavy legs, salt cravings, dizziness, and you may cry easily.
